Default Videos and Pictures from this weekend's auto-x

Did a split of my fastest and slowest. Best time on the right.



here's the clean run on it's own:




The car did great, after the end of the day I noticed I was only running wastegate, oh well, don't think I needed 6psi more anyways.


My favorite pic of the day:

I don't see how you can find your way around in all those cones.. I'd end up going the wrong way.

There was no new alignment...long story.


There was a little push in the two tight sweepers. I think I could have benefited from a little more front tire pressure and a little less shock compression. Otherwise the car was a blast and felt great, a huge improvement over my last. I just watched a video from someone in a NC on teh same course, while he had better tires than me the car is stock, he went around the hairpins without effort. I need to fix this!

But yeah, everyone was complaining about the last leg of the course, you just hoped to make your way through, there were way too many cones.

Thanks for the pics. Was the Morgan quick or just pretty? How about the Sprite?

The morgan is quick, some small v8 in it, all aluminum body. The sprite, not so much.
