Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I don't know who made those diagrams, but I don't agree with them. My truck has class 2 and it is computer networking. CAN came out after that, some 04 GM models (malibu/G6) were 1/2 and 1/2 CAN and class 2.

Open the door on my truck with the key in the ignition and the chime comes out the speakers. The BCM knows the key is in and the door is open, sends signal to radio to chime.

The purpose of computer networking is to reduce redundancy and the amount of sensors on a car, also reduce cost.

My 81 Malibu and 84 Z28 both had 2 coolant temperature sensors, one for the computer and one for the gauge/idiot light. With computer networking, only one sensor and wiring is needed, the computer and gauges share the info over class 2 or CAN.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I feel like someone told me it was sound pressure level 170 decibels?

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

So NESBA just threw a wrench in my trackday membership plans. I might actually switch over this year from TPM, pending prices, simply based on the 15 VIR days announcement. Also doesnt help that TPM basically cut ALL incentives from their Full Throttle membership

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

Is TPM's FT membership $99 for all of you to? It says $299 crossed out with $99 next to it. That plus the $75 credit makes it cheap.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

So I renewed my membership and it expires 12-2012, for $99 and no track credit. There is one event left this year at NC bike this weekend and I'm not making that.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I have to face a harsh reality that I will be riding next to none next year. At least at the track.

Tom, if you waited a few minutes, we would have told you that's probably for the rest of this year...

I would call and ask for a refund. You were a fool to think you could get next year's membership for $99...

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I logged in with my user and password and it didn't say which year the membership was for. I thought maybe they really wanted me back.

Can you get a 2013 membership yet? The site didn't say when they are available, it just let me sign up. I didn't think there were any more events this year.

2013 MEMBERSHIP LEVELS
FULL THROTTLE

$299

Pay in full or in 2 payments when paid no later then December 31, 2012

$75 track credit good toward 2013 events (offer valid through December 1, 2012)
Limited 500 memberships available for 2013 season
So it sounds like I should hurry up and sign up for 2013 before December 1st...2 weeks from now if I want that credit. When you go to sign up for a membership it doesn't say which year you are signing up for.

no kidding. Im waiting to see what NESBA's rates will be before I officially choose. I really hope they release both schedules in their entirety before the Dec 31st TPM track credit deadline



When they Summit, Im pretty sure they dont mean Main, just like they dont say North, South, or Patriot for VIR. Basically just saying they will be at that facility w/o giving away which course

Yeah, and I didn't back off, now I'm really fucked. This season I said I would be at the track once a month either racing or TD. I was there 2-3 times a month, plus with all the amenities.

I might try to squeeze in the 3 NJMP rounds, but still on takeoffs, and possibly less races.

I'm doin the same. So far it looks like tpm has more variety. If nesba doesn't get pocono and nyst, then the decision is easy.

so quick update. I found a guy on nesba with a BUNCH of shit. I went nuts...i bought

- Attack Performance rearsets with new spare pegs - shut up Bob
- fairing stay
- windscreen
- entire subframe
- woodcraft no-cut sliders

all i need are clip-ons (already found a new set for $100), the brake reservoir & hose, gas tank, and the top triple. I might have her back together b4 the year is over
As for the bodywork, it's not THAAAT bad. if it goes back on securely, i'm leavin that shit all fucked up. baby blue is goin mad max next season! I'll save the spare bodywork for when the current set explodes into tiny particles
