Lol. Welcome to e3p!
If it's a youtube video you only use the last digits of the embed code. For example:

http://youtu.be/BvXz3TLUeow < this is the code

Then click the youtube button and paste in this (without the spaces):

Thank you very much for the warm welcome. (and teaching me how to correctly post videos :U) Think I'm gonna like it here.

ThunderHill is a blast! Being on a real race track made me feel like a new driver all over again, overwhelming and scary! But you quickly get used to the traffic. I can't over emphasize how much fun it is to be out there, definitively worth the $200~. Next time I go out, I hope to be on something better then Treadware 400 tires. Good to learn on though!

Also just a note about the video, we were only allowed to pass at designated parts of the track.

Yeah, that's standard HPDE rules. It's a good way to keep people from rubbing fenders trying to dive through a corner in a pass. You should get a build thread going, lots of questions about your setup and plans for the car!

Not sure if anyone would want to make the hike some time, but I was cruising back from Ohio yesterday and drove past the South Bend, IN Tire Rack facility and it looked like they put on a decent event down there. I know I counted as least 4-5 E30s coming back down I-80. Any of them you guys?

That's where I was 2 weeks ago, but I was at a different event this weekend. That event was a BMWCCA event put on by the Chicago chapter. Great place to run an event though.

For me usually a little under 2 hours. I'd definitely be up for meeting for an event there, heck if we could get you, Tony, me and Austin, and anybody else in there area to meet up that would be pretty awesome! I just need to figure out what I am doing for tires.
