Perhaps we can contact Monticello Motor Club and get a track rental setup and then we can go balls out -- wanna race then? bring it! I hit 150MPH on the straight.. NO TICKETS BABY!!
    I will say this, the main reason we had people not coming together is because activities some people want to take part in get put below other activities. through work and other methods i have been able to do track events such as autox, off roading, drag, road racing and what not. I have also done runs with shane and other groups, cruises through multiple states with Kris/buddies and just driven to ac/phili because i was hungry and was looking for a fun drive.
    some people want to do track events and thats how they enjoy themselves. we should encourage that and wish them well. be it a drag event which some want to do, or an autox for some or even some road courses. on the same token some people are fans of building high hp cars and putting that to use on the turnpike or various roads. we should also wish those guys well. in short what i am saying it isnt our place to talk down some peoples ideas because it isnt something you or someone else might not be down to do.

    i think in the same vain we welcome all people of various backgrounds and vehicle types, we should welcome their passions as well.

    This wasnt against you middle sized will, i was just looking to point this out as i have heard rumblings of some people looking down on other activities and what not.

    yeah, the main reason I stopped going to meets was because I heard some of the other guys talk crap about how some of us drive on the road, when in fact they were driving at our pace..

    Anyways, I do think if we are going to do cruises around like midnight run, we should set up rules or at least check points so that it does not become a bunch of smaller groups running around. I agree with big Will that we need to accept and embrace all kinds of driving styles and we should accommodate to the point that is safe for all. IF some want to do 150mph then go ahead but wait for the rest of the group at a checkpoint.

    I will give you another example; on the last drive to GCC I was left behind with another guy because the guys in the front past a light in orange.. if you are going to do that and you have 10 cars behind then some are bound to stay at the red light but nobody thought about waiting for us. So think about this in a 50 car group; just like on midnight run it will just become disorganized.

    I think what Will meant & correct me if I'm wrong but the main problem was going on runs and some guys not knowing the limitations of their cars, which was putting others in danger. I've seen it on the midnight run..if I'm at a buk 50 I don't want to see a civic trying to catch up it's not going to happen....different cars, different handling, different braking...etc... You first have to respect the limitations of your car because their is nothing to prove to others...belive me I'll have more respect for those that just want to cruse than those that want to exceed their capability's to prove something or try to impress everyone else...that's my .02 on this

    yeah i tried to slow the group down but.... it wasnt happening when i stopped leading. normally when i would do cruises or what not to a certain place we would have a spot where everyone would meet up so no one gets left behind. Kris can attest to that being a blessing when he used to lead some 100 cars from north jersey to ocean city maryland.

    driving at your cars ability =/= driving at your own ability. we all drive cars that can do things that we would never be able to control if we tried to do it. the majority of us drive vehicles that have limits that cant be found on a normal street. civic or 911, doing 150 could be a simple thing if your car can do it, the dangerous part comes if you assume just because your car is built to do it that some how you are able to control it.

    this is where what lil Will said about doing some form of organized motor sports would help people understand what their cars are like if they have to do a panic stop at 150 or so ( i've done that on a preped car before and its alot more violent then most your think). so hitting up events like what kris/raceway park is holding is a good thing. for a minimal price you get to get some practice on steering and braking control on a road course, and throttle modulation on a a drag strip. those things can only help to give you greater abilities then what your car can attain.

    Cruising with a lot of cars is organized chaos at best. At the beginning of all the rallies that I held, it was always on you. But, we would also have a lead car and a chase car that would know the deal.
    I remember leading a L4P group to the cliffs run last year. It was like having a group of angry pitbulls behind me on the pot hole ridden palisades parkway. I then got passed by 8 of the cars on the extension to the bear mountain bridge. Not the way I like things to go down.

    it might be due to some people not driving their performance cars daily ( me included) and then looking to just let loose ( me included). but the term angry pitbulls is sorta accurate.

    but as a whole we are all solid people so things will get alot better. ( more so once someone ditches his A4 for a proper rs4 with twin snails on it. j/k)
