Seems like you were doing pretty good on session 5?
I don't know shit about racing... but it looks like you passed everyone. I didn't see anyone pass you.
Session 5 was the shit! The track had dried and warmed up enough to provide some good grip. As the day went on I ended up finding that I could get away braking later in the hairpins and sometimes not at all in the sweepers and kinks. I got my best time of the day in session 5 with a 1:28.94.
I loved how the vette got owned by a 4 banger :thumbup: take that V nothing!
Those big American v8 cars really don't like to let little old Datsuns pass, I had to dive bomb him with an assist from rag10 ;)
Ya I noticed that LOL, how much power you getting out of her?, I admire how quick she speeds up!
It puts down around 270 when running right. I had crappy old spark plugs in there, and along with fuel starvation in session 4 I was a little down on power. There was still enough juice to get around the track and some other cars though!
I foresee an SR swap for my dime in the near future :frantics:
I'll most likely drop it in my upcoming 620 or 510 goon...if not you got dibs on her, it's running so good I hate to part with her...
Dude!! Sweet vids. I haven't watched them all yet but I will. You were screaming that day.
Got some photos back, track oics by http://www.tyrphoto.com
Sick pics. Did you get all the ones he took?
No, he took a ton! I just picked my favorite 5.
Another weekend, another spirited driving event! Autocross #3 went down and I had just enough luck to snag my 3rd class win! This time I took it by a cone, a wrx was about a half second faster but had to take a 1 second penalty. A win is a win!

During my second run I encountered a snake on the course and lost concentration, missed a gate and DNF'd.
woa a little shaky. great runs! 1st gear grinding! :frantics:
Nice job Tyler! Killing it in GTB-S this year...I smell a change to R-comps next year...
What class are you in for autocross? Just trying to figure out where a turbo 510 fits in.
Thanks Duke! I was really considering moving to the Maxxis VR-1 street tire in 245 width but GRM just tested it against the 225 Rival S and it was slower. I'm probably going to stay away from slicks/ R-comps for a while yet.
One thing I want to try to whip up is a heel plate, do you have any pics of the one you made in your thread?
I'm not sure about SCCA or anything like that. Our club runs pretty basic classing format.
A class for V8, forced induction 6 cylinder or turbo rotary
B class for 6 cyl or forced induction 4
C class for 4 cyl or naturally aspirated rotary
E for electrics
X for whatever else I guess
Then tires, 140 treadwear and up is a street tire until next year they will switch to 200.
In our club my main competition are things like wrx, sti, 350/370z, g35/37, S30z, Focus ST and various BMW's
what clutch setup your running?
