My car would have a little more power since they're not allowed to do any engine mods.

I don't think I'd want to push the car as hard as good specE30 drivers, though.

I have a feeling your car makes as much power as it's supposed to stock.

Would be fun, but very hard to organize with how cheap most of NGC is. It worked out pretty nice when CMT1729 Alex, Chris TK Harris, and myself did a track day at Infineon and then went to SF for sushi afterwards. What a glorious day that was.

Chris and I were noobish and didn't have much power in a MINI and 325ci. Alex was quite fast in his M3; was not able to keep up in the slightest.

Well, were not so much cheap as just flakey

Like for example...certain people not showing up to their own meets

I still think people would have fun. I mean who would really go? Derek would, Tobeh would, I'd join, miles would be pit crew, Kalim would be forced to go

who else do you think would go?

lol, I'd be happy with pit crew fun.

I could see:
-Kalim
-Wht Kyle
-Derek
-Myself (as pit crew shenanigans)
-E30 Nate
-Daniel
-Rick
-Marvin
-hizhiness
-lando

People who wouldn't go:
-Briangle would likely never go out of fear of car problems
-Toby in Texas
-Drew no money, and too hardparked to make it to track
-Nick no money and no car longer than a few days
-Albee and Wes would likely not make it from being too far away
