Right back attcha Tim,

It's the longest runing VW Dracing event in the world. They have held it on both summer Monday holidays for over 30 years. It's a distination. It's also a two day event! So we would leave on Saturday and drive home late on Sunday to avoid traffic! Second point, it's at a drag strip and not a public park! You know what Elysian Park is like after about 10am on any given Saturday-- just think what it's going to be like on a THREE DAY WEEKEND! Good luck, trust me I would go if I was in town. My point was not to slam the event or stand on my soap-TIM-box! It was to tell you that you might want to pick a weekend and keep that same weekend every year! Like the first Saturday in MAY!

The thing that really sucks, is I will be driving up the 5 fwy at 6am going to Sacto that morning-might even see some rides on the way. I am going to hate missing that event! I have been working on a build and thinning the collection for the swap. I wish Gonzo and OS-BMX a sucessful event!

Sorry Troy i'll take the bike show. Sac raceway is the same POS place it's always been.

I can't imagine missing Elysian for that place if that's where your going. Is that Bugarama weekend?

shinburger,

Yes, it the BOR and when you race in a point series you have no choice over tracks. Sacto is the best event we attend because of the people. Sure I would like to run NHRA tracks all the time, but that would mean I would only be going to 3 VW races! Enjoy the event, hope the next one is not on such a busy weekend!

Thanks Shinburger-

What is your recommendation for replacing fuel lines (hardline main with 18"'s of braided runing the 48's)? Meaning how long before they go bad or you need to worry about interior cracking?

Troy

I always reccomend replaceing traditional braided line CPE inner every 2 seasons especially if you run reg.street gas or Alky. Race gas is alot easier on it. Cheap insurance especially if you move them around while working on them.

PM me I would be happy to set ya up with a good parts deal. Your hose ends are usually reusable. Anything XRP makes I have in stock.

Hi-jack over :)

I know I am going to do all I can to get out there. Does kind of yank for those of us with family and being out of town. I was thinking of bringing my daughters but not on that weekend. Crossing my fingers to make it work.

STR-1, Take your daughter to Disneyland on Sunday. Make it a family vacation weekend. It's only a two hour flight from Denver to LAX. Rent a car to the BBQ Saturday. There's a great playground at Elysian park and always plenty of food. Book the family into a hotel in Anaheim for Saturday night and do Dizzyland on Sunday. Drive back to LAX on Monday, fly home. Perfect family vacation!!!
