    You sir deserve a beer, come stop by our tent or campsite!

    That invite goes out to all DSMTuners members as well! It would be nice to put a face to the username so if you are going and want to have a beer, sent me a PM and I will have one waiting for you! We are camping at the Milan Travel Park by all the hotels if you are familiar with the SO setup.

    Who doesn't have a bottomless beer cooler? haha. Anyone is free to stop by our spot as well for beer, food, tools, help, you name it... We are always on the grass patch in the pits with our tents. Just look for the license plates GOLDIGR and SGR DADI and you will know its us haha.

    I always enjoy putting a face to a username too.

    If you see a red 2g with CORNF3D collector license plate, be sure to stop by or flag me down if I drive by!

    If your coming for the whole event, then you should be at Buschur Racing at 8:30-9:00am on Friday morning and then plan to stay until around 4:00 or later, everyone then heads to their hotels, out to eat, campground to put up the tent, etc until the gates at the track open and then we all caravan sort of over that direction and its all on autopilot for the rest of the weekend. So Friday morning Buschurs, Friday night the track for racing until its over then hang out at the hotels/track/campgrounds basically make the rounds all night then back Saturday morning for a full day of racing then back out making the rounds Saturday night after the racing and then back Sunday for all day racing. You can bring any food or drink that you want as long as your responsible, bring your parts to sell too if you want.

    Pretty disappointing that autocross is cancelled. And I see they added an RB powered class as well. I'll at least bring the Talon out for Friday and spectate the other days. Living an hour away makes it a no brainer.

    Myself and a friend have already messaged him stating we would work the event. Neither of us will have cars running this year so we figured we had all the time in the world to help out

    Hey guys I am new to these cars and am thinking about driving down 3 hours just for Friday because I have plans Saturday. Seems like an awesome event and not really sure what to expect. Will be going by myself so hopefully can meet some people from here while I’m there.

    Haha, yeah I'm clearly jealous of an event I don't intend to go to. Good logic there. I'm not true a dsmer, yet I've owned 5 DSMs over 17 years. Real bright guy you are. When you drive your POS down here 25 hours to TX2K (you know boostin broke the record last year, any true DSMer would be here for that, right?) then we'll talk.

    Won't be in attendance this year but planning to come next year. I picked up another DSM last winter and haven't had much time to work on it. No reason I can't bring both of my DSM's next year. Need as many clean DSM's at the event as we can gather. Have multiple friends who are planning on tripping up there next year as well.

    I finally got plans finalized. I have more repairs to do today after work but I will be there tomorrow for my first Shootout. I'm leaving for an autocross Sunday in Centerville, though, so it will be just one day for me.

    Will be there tomorrow and Sunday. Unfortunately no talon, planning on 2020 but hopefully next year. Wife and kids will be in tow, but luckily they enjoy going to the drag strips. First year going this year though so pumped!!!

    The converter decided to eat itself, not sure what the cause was but thinking about swapping to Bradco or Precision Industries instead of the Sinister... I didn’t even get one pass in, this happened while cruising around town.

    I trailered it which helps! Looks like the sprag went in the converter, think I’ve decided to go with a PI spragless converter!
