For those coming to Chicago we will be having a meet in Hoffman Estates. We are not publicly posting it, but feel free to tell your friends. Please note, takeovers are a thing out here and the cops know this, so dont do any burnouts or anything crazy at this lot. Local PD helped set this up and will be there to monitor.

Around 7ish we will cruise to Car Club Chicago which is gridlife's warehouse. This is meant for Final Bout participants only (and any of your close friends). We will park as many cars inside as we can, but space is limited, so some cars will be parked outside. If you think you need to leave earl, I suggest not parking insde. Cars will be fine outside (I've parked my S13 outside no issues)
