Possibly!  Tell me more, I'm here to learn.  I don't know what either of those things are, or why I'd want them.  My big upgrade (or fix, i guess) has been some turn in concepts linkage bushings for the shifter, as it had developed a lot of slop that was driving me crazy. 

Apparently the previous owner was a bit of a car nerd, so I've got a short throw shifter on it and the suspension has been firmed up a bit from stock.

Sent you a PM - basically the larger rear sway helps reduce understeer.

I'm down - still sorting out my stupid link issues but could do something in November. Weekends are busy until then. Sway comes in tomorrow, so will be putting her back together tomorrow night.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

I am up for it as well. I have been out of the country but will be back in a couple days. November should be pretty free for me.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

Not sure about days that work for me but, I just remembered I need to take care of a rear wheel bearing that was giving me trouble before I left.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

I'll have to consult my social calendar (aka my wife) for what plans we already have in November but I think it's fairly light. Weekends obviously would be best for me.

Well, I have kind of just ignored it for now. I will get it taken care of eventually but I am fine to drive it until then. It doesn't make noise unless I have been driving a while. That being said, I am down for a drive most upcoming weekends.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

Hey I was just looking at my schedule and should be free on the 21st or the 22nd if anyone wants to do a canyon run.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

I don't think I have anything that weekend. Assuming no rain I'd be down. Will just make sure my oil is topped of before hand - my latest maintenance issue is leaky valve cover gaskets that need replacing. The fun just never stops. ha.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

I could do the 21st. Also, I will try to get my friend to come with (the one who came to the subaru meet). We just put a supercharger on his dads brz so that would be cool.

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

yeah I'm down for whatever. Berryessa would be cool since we haven't been out there. Another great road up in the foothills maybe for another time is Mosquito ridge road out of foresthill. Never been but I've heard good things.

Lol yup feet and meat is alive and well, except for a couple dirty scammers!

Post up your parts in the FS forum and there may be some interest - a fair number of bay area folks

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

Hey guys so here is what I was thinking for the route this Saturday
https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Chevron … 013536!3e0

Or instead of taking the main road back into town we could loop back and go down Mt Vedeer Rd https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Chevron … 013536!3e0

Re: How many Bay Area 9-2x'ers are left?

I am down to do one soon. It looks like mid july might be ideal for me. Like the 9th or the 16th. That  route is a fun one. I also have been meaning to check out this other road as well.

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/39.0192 … a=!3m1!4b1

Just a thought though. Its a long drive and it would be about 30-45 minutes to get there.
