For the 8th year MVP Track Time is headed to Austin, Texas for some on-track fun.  It’s time to sign up for three days of driving on America’s only purpose built F1 track, Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin. MVP Track Time has scheduled our 8th annual three-day COTA track event for February 19-21, 2021..

The entry fee for all three days is $1,375.  The same price as previous years  If you’d like to register for a single day or two days, contact me at (314) 249-3770 or Feffman@MVPTrackTime.com. 

Initially, as with our previous COTA events, this event will be for ADVANCED and INTERMEDIATE skill/experience drivers only. 

If you are in doubt whether you meet the Advanced or Intermediate criteria, call me at (314) 249-3770 to discuss your experience. There are a limited number of spots available for COTA.  Yes, COTA fills fast.


STEP 1
The $1,375 entry fee for all three days at COTA can only be completed with Pay Pal (you can use any major credit card through the Pay Pal system if you don’t have a Pay Pal account) at the link below:

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=JQ3XJ9LSZHJUN


STEP 2
Once you have completed the entry fee, head over to the “Registration Page” of MVP’s web site (link below) to register. You’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the page to complete the blue outlined registration box. Click on the“Event” drop-down menu and choose COTA (All 3Days): February 19-21, 2021 .

http://www.mvptracktime.com/id92.html


We will have four (blue, green, yellow and red) run groups allowing us to schedule our customary two hours of track time daily for each run group.

In the spirit of transparency, the rental of COTA, as you can guess, is extremely expensive, so once you register, MVP will not be able to give you a refund until COTA is sold out and we have a replacement for you.  If/when we can replace you, there will be a $100 cancellation fee.  Inside of four weeks (January 23, 2021 and later) prior to the COTA event there is no refund.  This is the expensive reality of renting Circuit of The Americas. 

If you have any questions, grab the phone and call me at (314) 249-3770 or you can e-mail Feffman@MVPTrackTime.com.

Happy Motoring and I hope to see you at COTA. Enjoy your day.

The Lounge / AVOID ManTrans in Florida
« on: October 20, 2019, 11:51:05 AM »
Good Day All:

As is often quoted, “Enter at your own risk”.  Do NOT send your transmission to ManTrans (www.ManTrans.net or www.ManTrans.com) in Tallahassee, Florida. 

After speaking with Cindy Allen of ManTrans, I sent them a 65K mile ZF 5-speed transmission for a rebuild just to make sure it was new before installing.  My American Express card was billed immediately.  The transmission was delivered to their facility May 28, 2019 for what was supposed to be a 2-3 week rebuild.  As you can guess, it’s now mid-October 2019 and no transmission. 

The ongoing saga:
•   We need one bearing to finish the rebuild (July 2, 2019)
•   The transmission is completed and needs to be run on the dyno (August 8, 2019)
•   I’m not sure what’s going on with it.  I’ll call you back (July – October 2019)
•   Transmission is finished and ready to go on the dyno today (September 9, 2019)
•   Owner Darrell Moore (darrell@mantrans.com) tells me they need a bearing and a synchro (September 23, 2019)
•   Owner hung up on me after I asked them to ship the transmission back to me.  Long, excuse filled e-mail from owner in response to my e-mail.  Taking synchro from core they have in house (September 26, 2019)
•   October 1, 2019 e-mail inquiry to the owner with response: “Builder out today, I’m getting with him now to confirm”.  Of course, no response three days later. 
•   October 7, 2019 owner says transmission shipping 10/8 or 10/9/19 after dyno run.  They will send me the video of the dyno. 
•   October 9, 2019 “Builder out with death in family.  If it doesn’t ship today.  I guarantee it will tomorrow”
•   October 15, 2019 phoned and left a message as well as e-mail.  No bill of lading so obviously transmission isn’t done and hasn’t shipped.

I’ve contacted American Express to dispute the charge, but since it’s past 60 days, they’ve no guarantee.  I’m writing off the ZF transmission costs as part of my ongoing adult education. 

Call this my mistake for at least not checking the Better Business Bureau.  I don’t usually put much stock in the BBB, but I’ve never seen a “F” rating. 

https://www.bbb.org/us/fl/tallahassee/profile/transmission/man-trans-llc-0403-160444139

Many of us have had similar issues with other vendors.  This is my experience with ManTrans.  You may want to avoid them.   

God knows in what condition the ZF will be returned, if it comes back at all.

Good Afternoon:

I hope this finds each of you in good spirits as we head into Fall.  I’m already thinking a more southern location is in the cards this coming Winter.  Perhaps a late February trip to sunny, warm Austin, Texas?!

For the 7th year in a row MVP Track Time is headed to Austin, Texas for some on-track fun.  It’s time to sign up for three days of driving on America’s only purpose built F1 track, Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin. MVP Track Time has scheduled our 6th annual three-day COTA track event for February 22 – 24, 2019.

The entry fee for all three days is $1,375, same price and 2014-2018.  If you’d like to register for a single day or two days, contact me at (314) 249-3770 or Feffman@MVPTrackTime.com. 

Initially, as with our previous COTA events, this event will be for ADVANCED and INTERMEDIATE skill/experience drivers only. 

If you are in doubt whether you meet the Advanced or Intermediate criteria, call me at (314) 249-3770 to discuss your experience. There are a limited number of spots available for COTA.  Yes, COTA fills fast.


STEP 1
The $1,375 entry fee for all three days at COTA can only be completed with Pay Pal (you can use any major credit card through the Pay Pal system if you don’t have a Pay Pal account) at the link below:

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=JQ3XJ9LSZHJUN


STEP 2
Once you have completed the entry fee, head over to the “Registration Page” of MVP’s web site (link below) to register. You’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the page to complete the blue outlined registration box. Click on the“Event” drop-down menu and choose Circuit of The Americas (COTA): February 22-24, 2019.

http://www.mvptracktime.com/id92.html


We will have four (blue, green, yellow and red) run groups allowing us to schedule our customary two hours of track time daily for each run group.

In the spirit of transparency, the rental of COTA, as you can guess, is extremely expensive, so once you register, MVP will not be able to give you a refund until COTA is sold out and we have a replacement for you.  If/when we can replace you, there will be a $100 cancellation fee.  Inside of four weeks (January 25, 2019 and later) prior to the COTA event there is no refund.  This is the expensive reality of renting Circuit of The Americas. 

A ”Garage Rental” e-mail will go out when registration is complete.  Each garage easily holds four cars, so there are plenty to go around, however, they are first come, first served. 

If you have any questions, grab the phone and call me at (314) 249-3770 or you can e-mail Feffman@MVPTrackTime.com.

Happy Motoring and I hope to see you at COTA. Enjoy your day.
