If we can hit the road by 5:00am and drive on over to Chino, we should be there just after TQ opens for practice.

Do we want to meet up and follow each other over?

The track at TQ has a ton of grip. Eric ran Black fronts and Yellow rears. I ran Black fronts and Orange rears.

The popular tires that I noticed were:
Fronts
Black
Grey
Chrome
Ulti X hard
BSR Blue

Rears
Yellow
Greene
Orange / Greylow
Ulti X Medium

The low rubber type tires seem to work the best.

Next weekend is the second planned trip. I'm checking to see how many people are interested in making the trip this weekend?

Our last trip was a great time.

I am in for racing this trip, was already on vacation in SoCal during the last trip so I stopped by to see the AZ boys on my way back to town. The track looked super dialed with good racing going on.

I think I am good for this one as well, but I would need to figure out the car and hotel arrangement.

Evan, Right now I have Eric and Chris saying they're in and a maybe from Bill. So I'll probably be taking my wife's van over on this trip.

I've also booked a room at the Chino - LA Motel 6.

If anyone else is planning on going to race at TQ this weekend please let us know. We can work out carpooling or caravaning out on Saturday morning.

I didn't know you had a van. Sounds like a good plan.

I'm in... I should have my new cases for my ESC today when I get home. Then I can finish putting my car back together.

17.5 1/12 was the big 1/12 class, right?

Evan, do you still have the same ph #? that we we can coordinate when to drive up.

Jason, I'll bring a sleeping bag and crash on the floor or where ever of the hotel room if that's okay, and just how big is this van?
