yeah i want some black wheels for my liquid silver too. has anyone looked into powder coating around the area?
I have! Everywhere in this area its about $200, but thats if you take everything off down to the bare rim yourself. RNR said $400 to take everything off, send to powdercoaters, and reinstall... Thats the best price ive seen so far, everywhere else i called is more and farther away. Or you could buy a set off CL for $200-$300, but then you'd have to still pay $100 for tire and bearing swap. Thats probably what ill end up doing since i havent found someone to trade me yet.

Bring cash with you. Usually it's a 25-35 entry fee, then you get most of it back. They usually keep 5-10.
It'd probably be good to bring water as well.

You pay a certain fee, then you get most of it back. i.e. pay 35, get 25 back when you leave.

Yes, you can hang out in the paddock area. We'll be under a red tent.

It was free! It was seriously fun going out there today, especially when My friend and I got to take 2 laps around the track, im def doing a track day before the year ends. Those guys out there are nuts! There were a few red tents out there so i didnt know which one you were.

How was it? If I went to just watch, I'd just take my car. Too much of a hassle walking around in riding boots and a 1 piece suit around the paddocks or what not.

I thought it was pretty fun, lots of nice bikes out there, got to ride the track for 2 laps, and it was a fun ride there. I just wore jeans and my leather jacket, it wasn't bad out there at all. Im def going again soon
