June 2009 - DFW Yaris Yak

May I have your attention please...

Folks, I know this is short notice and it will probably screw things up. I'm sorry and I take full responsibility for this.

!Today's Yaris Yak location has changed!

Since the people attending today's Yaris Yak are mostly on the Dallas side of the metroplex, let's meet at the Keller's Drive-In at 10554 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, Tx, 75220 at 6:30pm. This is between Walnut Hill Ln. and Lombardy Ln. The restaurant is on the EAST side of Harry Hines.

If anyone needs to call me for any reason, please do so, 214-405-3715. I will have my cell phone with me and can give you directions if needed.

Again, I'm sorry for the last minute change but there's no real reason to drive to the far side of Ft. Worth if we're all in Dallas.

Thanks,

S.R.


--- the information above this line was added on June 28, 2009 by me ---

Ok Boys and Girls,

It's time to think about another DFW Yaris Yak.

Tentative dates are:
June 13th and 14th (the 14th is Flag Day)
June 20th and 21st (the 21st is Father's Day)
June 27th and 28th (no holiday)

Tentative locations are:
Keller's Drive-In (Dallas)
Lazerdot's House (Bedford)
Sonic Drive-In (Somewhere in Ft. Worth)

We need suggestions for locations in Ft. Worth! I'm looking for places to go but a lot of what I find on Google ends up being closed.

Please let us know what you think,

S.R.

We can go to Lazerdot's or Keller's. I'll ask people around here where a good place to meet up would be good.

I wouldn't be able to make it on the 14th because there is going to be another NST meet in houston. Sorry I always support Mike and his crew. With that said I have been PMing wildmongoose26 and she lives in Carrollton and said something about happy hour at sonic and if we can talk her into it we all might be able to play the possibably the funniest game of frisbee golf ever. I work every saturday until 6 and remember I'm an "hour away" from everything and I don't work sundays. Oh and lazerdot I can get camber bolts cheaper than you did through work. I think I'm going to install some tomorroww at work!

Cool, the ones I got from Garm were a good price. I wonder if they are similar? How would you like to get a set of brakes too?(R1 Drilled Slotted). I could order them together, brake lines as well. Maybe S.R. too?

I'll be getting the bushings from NST soon. Do I need both sets?

Either way, an expert would be helpfull for the install on each part.

Frizbee golf sounds good by the way, Ive been wanting to try that for a long time.

Sorry I can't afford the brake stuff right now. Garm does have a good deal on the camber bolts you can't buy them from us without spending twice that amount but I get them at cost so they are only about 10 bucks cheeper than what you got them for. "I'm not an expert but I'll take a look" I love that quote! You could get the bushings at different times if you wanted. some people say get the cable bushings firts but if you can get them all you won't be disappointed. Both in combination will really "clean up" or "chrispen" your shifts. I have the tools to install them if you want me to help.

The ER and Porsche club events are normally on Sundays. Check out;

autocross.com/er

mav.pca.org

The July 5th event is at Mineral Wells and is a very fast course. We'd have to tape up the cars some.

I don't have a helmet though. Maybe I can make one out of duct tape and an old sock...

If you really want to do one of these things, Helmets are usually available on loan at the event.

Just talked Garm. He's got neat stuff in the pipeline. Save your $$.

Brakes and lines are on the way. I can't wait to give them a try. I'll talk to LilRedRocket about when and where to put them on.

I probably won't make the YY this month. My car just got wrecked by the lady across the street.

Pics posted in my profile album and posted in the Pic thread.
