The Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club officially announces our third meet of the summer for our East Coast members. The event is the Wall Speedway Rendezvous, and will happen on Saturday, September 1st at the Wall Stadium Speedway in Wall NJ (near the Jersey Shore). Members attending will watch some stock and modified auto racing, and will have the opportunity to turn some laps on the 30 degree banked track prior to the Feature Race.
This should be a fun evening, and is sure to become an annual event. Go to http://www.bluedelta.net for more details.
Time is also creeping up on the Monterey and Detroit Rendezvous events on August 17th thru 19th, 2001. We're opening the doors wide on all events, members and non-members, 300M AND LHS owners are cordially invited. We have hotel rooms reserved for both events, but only until July 27th. After that, you're on your own.

I'll tell you exactly why I beat the IS (who was racing me)! First off the autostick with torque lock up converter allowed me to do something a manual tranny can't -- torque load the powertrain by applying both brake and power. At start my M had already built up 3000 rpm and who knows how much ft lbs of torque. All I had to do was release the brake and turn the built-up power loose. This was all before he was even able to release his clutch much less build any kind of power. The next thing to note was this was just between 2 red lights less than 1/4 mile apart. Simply put I beat him off the blocks.

Av - That spoiler link works fine for me. Try IE if you're using Netscape.
Roger - Will do. Brought the camera with me today. I'll take pictures of everything interesting.

I have the same colour as you, but except the wood trim, I have not done anything to it,I have not figured out how to use my trusty Brownie Hawkeye Camera yet, so I have not taken any pictures.I may do the Zaino, but I have not put an order in yet. I had someone the other day comment on the colour and state, it was the prettiest, he had seen. I told him to go to my dealer and get my other M with the same colour but without side airbags because it is still sitting on the lot.

which IS are you talking about? Lexus IS300? that thing does not come with manual transmission yet.
Jul 10, 2001 (9:22 am)
If the IS doesn't have a manual trans then I smoked him with no good reason why?
Jul 10, 2001 (9:36 am)
The IS300 Does not have a manual tranny. But it also has something like Autostick. I really hope you don't do that alot. That's a real quick way to destory the tranny/drivtrain. The 300M is just not built for doing things like that.
Jul 10, 2001 (9:48 am)
I'd love for you to get the brownie working. I'm considering wood trim and it would be awesome to see what it looked like in advance. Where did you get your trim? Do you have the luxury group? If so, does the trim match the real wood?
#6198 of 26385 OK One More Try! Anyone? Is This possible?
Jul 10, 2001 (9:50 am)
How does one disconnect/disengage the odometer? Some one answered remove spark plug! Come on now. I won't send the Feds over. Just interested in how this is possible. I have been told by a tech that there are 3 computers on the 300M that keep track of miliage. Is this a pipe dream like Avs technicians reprogramming the computer to eliminate the speed limiter.
