O.k. thanks.

I asked because there are (2) little screws on the stock pipe that someone may have taken apart and gut the inside out.
Not that I would do it.....

Jlock, thanks man I should also have 2 laying around somewhere if not i'd like to try the ofna pipe. Hey so I guess you are planning on attending this race? I'm on a campaing to be good until then and get the ok from the wifey lol
I am at least working on trying to attend this race. Working on the passport thing right now (currently a 4 to 6 wk processing turnaround). The cars are always ready. Just need to buy a transport case, something similar to what Victor had when he came to Joliet.

If you need a passport and want it quick tell the guy where you submit the paperwork that you need it rush. He will then ask for a few things like; when are you planning the trip? and he will then tell you that you need to buy express mail envelope and you can have your passport in about two weeks. So just tell them that you will travel in less than the regular time frame so you have the passport quickly. That's what I did.

Got a couple of questions:

1. Will there be a contact at the airport for us flying in so that we don't get lost?

2. If the question to #1 is no, then does the hotel have a shuttle at the airport for us to take so that we don't get taken?

Since I have never been to Mexico City and I don't speak spanish, I'd hate to get there and be lost.

JLOCK,

Victor and his team is working on all that, as far as i know they will give the hotel alternatives, and will be receiving the drivers at the airport and will have some kind of shuttle system from hotel to track, just give more time for that.

cya !

yes am working on that.

Please dont worry. we will arrange everything in order to pick all international drivers at the Airport.

There will be also transportation from the Hotel to the track every day.

We only will need your schedule but i know is to early for that.

As a request for all international drivers attending the event is to Start doing the registration in the site we need to know how many of you are coming. Hotel is asking me to sing the contract for 20 rooms.

Thanks for the information. Sorry, I do not mean to sound impatient. Just need some info so that I know what to expect if I can make it to the race.
