Hello everyone,

Looking to get some interest going in an alltrac & halftrac meet.

I usually browse on alltrac.net but I'll try my best to keep this thread updated.

Post up if you're interested and some dates you'd be able to make it out and we'll arrive on a final date eventually.

I'm aiming for the first few weekends in August as of right now...

:yumyum:



[August 7th, Update]

Okay everyone, heres the final details!

Date: August 14th 2010
Time 12:00 -2:00 PM (1300-1500)
Location: South Lot - Aldershot GO Station, Burlington Ontario (http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Aldershot+GO+Station,+Burlington,+Ontario&sll=43.278408,-79.991306&sspn=0.005686,0.013797&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Aldershot+GO+Station&ll=43.311908,-79.853654&spn=0.005683,0.013797&t=h&z=16) + road course after.

Details:
Rain or shine!

For the meet we will arriving be at the Aldershot GO station in Burlington Ontario If the lot there is over capacity then we will meet at Hidden Valley Park (http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Unknown+road&daddr=&hl=en&geocode=FYjDlAIdgGA9-w&mra=ls&sll=43.303812,-79.860864&sspn=0.002694,0.006813&ie=UTF8&ll=43.304023,-79.863696&spn=0.002694,0.006813&z=17) also in Burlington.

Show up around 12:00 to hang out, trade parts and whatever.

At 2:00 we will all leave as a convoy or at timed intervals for a road course has been planned out.
I need to warn all that are interested in coming that this is a very challenging route and that all precautions should be taken to prepare yourself and your co-driver for the drive. If you stick to the posted limits then this shouldn't be exceedingly challenging, however we all know theres no fun in that!

Please keep in mind while driving that because this is on public open roads all your normal hazards still exist such as animals, children and elderly/stupid drivers.

In order to keep undesirables off our planned route I will be keeping it a secret until the day of the event where annotated hard copies will be available at the park just to help with a heads up on cop locations, deer warnings & etc.

The whole route is about 52Km and apparently takes 1:20 to run but I seriously doubt that. I'll run it tomorrow and correct my post with an approximate time.

There is one gravel section included in the course that is probably one of the best new roads I've discovered in the past few months however, I will include a paved alternate route if youre really worried about the rocks.

If the meet up time isn't good for you guys please let me know and we can stretch it out by a bit.
I'm just hoping that we can miss twilight for the duration of the run.

If you are planning on participating in the road course I strongly recommend that you come prepared with the following:
Spare fluids/rad/oil/brake etc.
All the tools you need to swap on your spare tire/fix minor problems.
Safety triangles or flares incase you run into trouble.
CAA/Towing company of choice info and a means to contact/pay them!
Drinking water.
Food & snacks.
Sunglasses & Sunscreen.
Umbrella.
First Aid Kit.


[Augst 8th Update]

I'm looking into other meet points than La Salle park. As conveniently located as it is to the planned route I'm worried that its going to be too busy for us to get enough parking there for pictures & hanging out.
Close alternate options are the Aldershot Go station lot and the beaches in Burlington.
Ran the route today and with decently heavy traffic it took me about an hour.

I'd like to get an idea on attendance so please confirm you are coming!

Having a feeling that this will end up being west of Toronto between Burlington and Hamilton.
We can meet up for some chit chat and trading parts and then roll out for a brief cruise.

Siyx

Sounds good. Lets firm up a time/location so I can free myself. West of Burlington and Hamilton is getting close to me :D Cambridge/Kitchener/Waterloo.

A good spot would be off the 401 at Mohawk Raceway (slots and horses). The parking lot is huge and never full by Guelph Line so everyone could see the Celica's. Not to mention they got some nice twisty roads up there for a cruise along the escarpment.

When I lived in Mississauga over 15 years ago, Jack Darling park was the place to be on the weekends, and Lakeshore Mcdonalds was a cool hang out, with the Tim Hortons just up the road on Erin Mills and QEW.

They did some changes to "JD" by the looks of it, but might be worth checking out.

Hey, you hear about Adrenaline?? It burned down on Monday!! Phil's gonna put some of the Supra's back on my lawn. Wonder if I will get mine back ;)

salv

Yea i heard..... How's he feeling/doing? Poor guy!

He sounded a little down this morning when I called him. Might go over after work tonight if he needs a hand moving stuff.

Siyx
08-06-2010, 08:46 PM
So people, the 14th is getting closer. How many are serious and where are we meeting?

On a side note, tomorrow (Sat Aug 7th) I can be found at Phil's shop helping clean up the fire mess. We (if this all comes together) will have a BBQ/Fund raiser to help him recoup some of the losses. More on this later in a different thread. I know it's short notice but if you are local to Waterloo/Kitchener please come by and show your support.

Thanks!

Sal, I get my Supra and the Cressida on my lawn :) You got any spare room for some cars ?

I'm just finishing off the route & meet points tonight and should post them up tomorrow. :)

Siyx, If you need parking for your cars I have a spare driveway at my house that could fit at least two cars - I'm about 40 min south of kitchener towards Hamilton PM me if you're interested.

First post updated with the details of the meet!

Getting excited!!!

Siyx

I appreciate the offer athousandleaves but I think Phil wants to try and keep the cars "within arms reach" if you know what I mean.
As for me, I would have to be minus a limb to miss the meet! See you there.

Siyx
08-11-2010, 03:04 PM
I'm planning on coming but there has to be more people interested. 2 Celica's isn't really a meet.
:D
Deadline is closing fast so we need to firm a location and a head count.
4 days to go !!

I'm beginning to lean towards the south side of Aldershot GO station, its easier to find and there is a TON of fresh pavement to run some autox on if anyone has some pylons.

Ok, its official, we're going to exchange the busy beach for the open pavement.

Also as for people coming there's about 4 or so on alltrac.net that have confirmed.
I've been PM'ing people that list themselves as being located in ontatio like crazy to stir up more support for the meet

Maybe next time up near Mohawk Raceway, there are a ton of country back roads up there that can give any car a work out including a double 180 degree S bend :D
Good thing is most cops don't travel those roads either ;)

hey guys,

anyone know how to tell if any of our cars have torsen rear diff?

Torsen was a factory option for 92-93 alltracs and was never stock for north american celicas.

Only way to tell if you do/don't have one other than the driving behavior of your car is to open up the diff case and have a peek.

gettin a bit off topic here but what the hell...

In my opinion the best rust repair guy is yourself!

Jack the car up & keep sanding until the rust is gone and then coat the whole underside in POR-15 and you'll be rust free.

Greg_Canada
08-26-2010, 01:56 PM
I'm going to disagree.... you cant sand if there is nothing left! Also, sanding takes away precious metal... i would get it sandblasted or sodablasted, then primered and rocker guarded.. i use this guy for blasting www.sodapro.com he's got the facilities for doing underbody blasting... blasting only takes away the rust, where sanding takes away metal....
