Yeah, I was. However, I ended up with a best time of 31.0. Timing lights gave me a 28.875, but idk.

Nice video. Where do you go to autocross? There's a nice place down in Fort Myers (www.gulfcoastautocrossers.com), but that may be a little far south for you.

Not sure if you are looking for notes or not. You spent WAY too much time "coasting" In AutoCross you should either be on the gas or on the brake. I'm not saying WOT or hard on the brakes....but you should be using ONE of those pedals for the entire run All in all GREAT job of staying inside the limits of the car. As you get more comfortable with the car's limits you will get faster.
