    Andy in Washington

    Hi members,,,I just found this info about AAchat in my email, and decided to sign up. I got my AA in '05 from Brammo,,,found out at the first Atom Fest (Randy Lamp organized @ Hallet near Tulsa OK, that my chassis is the one that the UK sent to Brammo to develop their car with. It's Honda powered with a Hondata ECU and Tom Smurzynski (Central Point,OR) made new uprights for it so I could run larger rear wheel bearings , and slicks.

    I really only run it on the track, I'm one of the instructors for the Porsche Club (Portland,OR) and use it in all their events, also ran it at Laguna Seca on two different two day occasions last year,,,what a fun track. Our closest good track here is in NE Oregon, (ORP) and it's really fun.

    I like the car a lot, it's a machine that will bring a grin to your face !!

    I'm living in the Pacific Northwest, about 80 mi from Portland,OR

    Welcome,

    Is it yellow and black by chance? There is an owner with a yellow Atom that comes to PIR sometime. We've been trying to figure out who it is.

    Have you been out to Oregon Raceway park yet? I think we are trying to get together out there this year for a track day

    Hey Andy, I am also in Washington. Still raining, but, shortly we can do track and road events. Are you licensed for the street?

    my UK chassis car

    not to be to detail oriented but the car is a black chassis with yellow trim and yellow end pieces on the spoiler and wing. If I could figure out how to get the photos from my I-photo file into the album, I'd show you what it looks like

    ,,,I had the order in to get it,,,then Jay got involved and got them the connection to GM,,,which seriously slowed down the completion of my car as they were keen to make the GM cars happen

    I run with the Porsche club and have been at PIR quite a bit in the past, really like the ORP track,,,big time fun with the elevation changes and off camber corners

    Hi Norm,,,I've only run it on the street for the 1st 300 mi or so to help run in the motor. Really like the track stuff, and not too interested to drive it on the street, hence no plates on it, Looking forward to the first track event next month at ORP
