    Look at Colorado land values vs Oklahoma or rural Texas.

    True, however the first track I posted (Sandia) is in the middle of no where desert outside of Albuquerque. I really think if someone wanted to build a drift oriented Motorsports park that would be the place to do it. However, NM does not have the amount of cars to sustain Sandia alone, especially not something larger and more expensive, so it'd be a gamble on relying on people to make it a destination trip.

    And I actually have some land in rural Oklahoma (an hour outside Tulsa) that would be more then enough to build a massive motorsports park on. But there's hardly any drifting out there so it would really be a personal track except for the 4 weekends a year or whatever where we did bashes. IDK, I've thought about that often, but the cost of paving and mainly the thought of relocating to Oklahoma has pushed me far away from it.

    Catch 22. You want a track farther out for cheaper land and fewer regulations but then people aren't close by and likely won't come.

    Well, I took my car home to free up some shop space for the RX7 winter rebuild. I am still waiting to hear back from Fortune, apparently they're on old SLR's level of communication. I'm going to be posting some RX7 stuff here I think along the way, so hopefully that's ok.

    I guess I'm just use to driving 6-14 hours to wheel. It's no big deal to do it in rock crawling because you can spend a whole week or more at most places. One of my clients just spent two weeks in Moab last month for instance. Makes the two day drive worth while.

    Seems the black friday/ cyber Monday thing has a lot of companies playing catch up.

    some quick non BMW content.

    Starting working on the S/C install for the RX7 and got a bad case of the "since I'm here". Heads are pulled and sent off to Texas Speed for a stage 2.5 port / polish with oversize stainless valves. LS9 head gaskets, LS7 Lifters, new LS2 lifter trays, and ARP head studs are on their way as well. Got a Walbro 450lph to try to fit in the factory hanger, and some ID1050X injectors. Shooting for 650whp on E85 but I'll be happy as long as it drives good.

    Looks like I am going to have to dremel out my FAST102 to make room for the ID's lower plug location...lame.

    Got the manifold hydrodipped, rebuilt it with new gaskets, and was able to dremel it enough for the ID1050x to fit

    was able to fit the Walbro 450 E85 pump with some creative safety wiring

    Assuming testing on the RX7 goes well, I'll be out there for Southwest Rd 1, and then again in 2 weeks for LS Fest. If I manage to blow the car up before round 1 I'll just be at LS fest in the E46.
