Like B said, we have fast drivers and we have more moderate drivers. We always emphasize safety and courtesy to other drivers/riders/cyclists. A lot of our drives are done early in the mornings to try and minimize other traffic/obstructions. But if there's a hairpin curve with good visibility we're going for it. If you're new to our group and/or new to the car we recommend you take it easy and stay near the rear of the group. We use radios and usually communicate about hazards and upcoming turns so no one gets lost, no one gets left behind.

Seems like a great chance for me to repost a link to one of my safety notes -- everyone who drives with us, please read it! http://86drive.com/2013/05/09/a-few-words-about-safety/

yeah I'm not feeling an early morning rise this Sunday either, but 9 works.

when we do Mines, the usual meet up is the parking lot by Jamba Juice and Starbucks. Corner of N Livermore Ave and Portola Ave. But I'm open to any other suggestions, as long as there is adequate parking.

I talked to a few shops and they would be willing to work with us if we had 4-5 cars that wanted alignments. But for those of us who just do springs not sure if it's really that cost effective to do one since there isn't much adjustment that can be done.

Is the Sunday drive event @ 9 happening btw? Don't see it on the calendar but I'm interested in coming out. Not sure if I can make it for sure though, got some plans in SF that I have to make it back to in the afternoon.

Wouldn't you need an alignment anyway, since you're dismantling parts of the suspension??

But yeah, I'm in too, if we have enough people. I have parts paying around here, but no time to install them yet
