Pic for attention!

I loaded up this morning and headed out to the track. I dialed in about 3 degrees of negative camber and got rid of the negative toe. The hoosiers were air'd up and off I went!

This first run, I was really herky jerky, you can see it. I wasnt entirely sure of the course. The 3 gates I missed though... yeah I gave up on those, my brakes need a couple hundred degrees to grab and they were still cold, I was also going 60 mph. I hit the very top of 2nd at the end and it sounded awesome when it broke up but it didnt get captured on the camera very well. A 46.9. Listen for the front wheelspin on power, I need a front quaife diff BAD. Phil? Help me out!

My 2nd run was much more smooth and I navigated the gate slalom correctly. A CLEAN 46.9.

My 3rd run didnt film. The camera was in picture mode not film mode.... I did a 46.1 though.

My final run was pretty good. Car behaved well and the brakes were great. Still tons of front wheelspin, you can hear it in many portions of the track. My entry to the big 180 degree turnaround could have been improved and a nice hard launch would of got me another second. 45.1

A pretty fun day in my VR-4, everyone needs to race their cars more, really learn to DRIVE.

It's early September and you already had your last autox of the year? :(

I still have 7 events left until the season winds up in early November (although it's because I'm attending 3 regions... :) ).

Nice! I thought if this was in Spokane, I'd go to it next year, but to far to drive to Bremerton from where I am. Though it seems Spokane does an autocross event too, hmmm....

Nicely done! How did you fair in relation to other cars?
MDoe8, are there any autocross tracks near you? I'm only about an hour from Eureka.

Mike, I did pretty well, my car is not competitive within its true class but I was like the 12th or 13th fastest out of 150 cars. Not too bad!
