some of the guys in a local university club I'm in went out to that, its called the black lake shootout for a reason. I wish I could have gone but found out too late. Are you going to Beaufort on Nov. 15?

Rock out,, glad to see you got the oil feed line fixed from the 24 hr event... Wish i made the trip down there. Lots going on in Charlotte + no gas around kept me at home.

Nice Vid. car looks REAL flat in the corners.

Congrats

Justin

That's awesome. AutoX at its best! You're not going fast enough, if you aren't at the car's or your limits. I'd say getting the tail out is getting close enough for me!
