Default Redline Time Attack + Rain + 250whp = The time of my life!

Race car all cleaned up and ready for a weekend of play:







Will post video of a few laps within the next day or two. I ended up having the most amazing time of my life in my car this weekend. Nothing went wrong with it mechanically, it ran very strong, was a blast to drive in the wet, I learned alot and made alot of great friends. We participated in the BTA (beer time attack)



both nights, special thanks for the free beer with GST motortsports and the insane impreza L they built. Great times, great people, cant wait to do it again! I was able to participate in the "wheel to wheel" section of redline because of my cage and hans device, it was alot of fun to be on track with some high dollar cars, and not get last

As promised:



The silver wheels are a set that i borrowed from a friend. They had just about full tread on them, rs3's. The black wheels have worn nitto nt01s, both were like driving on ice in the rain.

looks like you have that black lexus on a string. yoyo

i was expecting 4 to be slippy, but 2 looks very slippy even off-line as well and it wasn't even that wet. i guess you got the first rain of the season and all that oil came up. what a ride whew

EDIT: you probalby don't care for stupid comments but it looks like u need more wing in carousel. car didn't look balanced through there...

The low-end torque from the AF bits makes rain driving very nice.

edit: i see the music stopped... good.
