Default Is CCFBG really dead?

No 13th Annual Spring Meet announcement and no communications from the executive members. A sad reality for F body enthusiasts in southern Ontario.

All the boards everywhere seem dead... The v6 boards are about obsolete... I went to post up the fastest car challenge on a few other F-body boards in the canadian section and there have been no new posts in some of those sections since 2013/2014 in some cases....

Then over here- we have literally like 4 guys that have timeslips... Almost like no one is modding or racing anymore... Not going to lie- I thought I would of had 40-50 guys dumping slips in that thread pretty quick...

hmmm I go back to school and things just go haywire in a few short years. Not really sure what happened since I moved away from the GTA but I can try texting some of the founding members for some details. Sadly my line of work now really eats into my time.

Really eh? I haven't been this year and can't get out until end of August beginning of September with my current job...if my job changes I'll be there earlier.

That is unfortunate though, I didn't think I'd see the day these would start dieing off.

Even still, with my records thing it includes Vettes and the like... I'm shocked at that part to

I tried St Thomas yesterday but traction was real bad with street tires. If you had street tires they wouldn't let you start in the groove they put a pylon up. needless to say it was a total waste.

They do that at TMSP as well if there is an event on.

Gets some DR's I just leave mine on now the newer compounds are good for the street too and wear well.

I have to disagree not sure who is telling you that it's a **** show. I have been twice this year and the staff and track is awesome they are prepping it with lots of track bite and dragging it constantly. The staff cater to the racers you don't feel rushed there they let you do what you need to to get ready very comfortable atmosphere. Stagging lanes are not all pot holes like cayuga there facility's actual work for us guys who don't have big motor homes. I use to go to cayuga I prob won't ever go back, st thomas is further for us but il make the extra drive for the hospitality and the nice facility.

Really, I've never seen them do that at TMSP. Maybe I just don't go enough. Your right about DR's I think I will pick up a set of Nittos.
It is hopeless to hook up with my Yank SS4000

What a giant cluster ****.

Well I respectfully disagree. An hour extra drive, never get traction,not many street cars to run against. Although I did enjoy the Mopar day there last year. Whatever happened to fbody day?

I'm probably hitting TMP Friday night in my Trans Am. First time at the track, m6, 310rwp, street tires, and a little noisy rear end. Going to granny it off the line and see what He runs.
