OK, all was not well and they always manage to capture it on film. Holy body roll, Batman! Didn't know that a cone was enough to lift the front of the car!

Props to our photographers. They always have the pics posted the same day or the next at the latest.

I need all of the above before I bother with that...

Actually, I need my new 600's from Deatschwerks first. I have to be taxing the stock injectors now. Hope to get them ordered today.

Yeah, I've had people look at pictures in the past and ask me what the hell I'm looking at.

My biggest issue...it ruins me in slalom.

So that picture of the cone under your car reminded me of the last event my GF and I went to. There was an old school challenger that kept eating cones. He ate one cone so hard that it ripped the drain **** right out of his radiator. Shortly after, my gf ate a bunch of cones so hard that a piece got stuck in the alternator of her integra (no under tray, mistake). Cones can be dangerous!

Awesome pictures!

Our season starts May 2nd, I'm really looking forward to it with the new coilovers (550 front, 350 rear) replacing the 15 year old OEMs.

That will never happen to me. The lady that won SM2L at nationals last year is local. She drives a supercharged 327WHP S2000 running on 285/315's. I have no chance ever, unless she doesn't show up.

Our ATL region is pretty big, typically we have ~200 registered drivers per event! So far the 'Vettes have not been out to play...and I want to play with them

I went to a nationals event...and the Strielnicks were there... it was game over for me..they PAXed the living **** out of the rest of my class :(

We are starting to see that now. Even though our region isn't that big, we are already getting national level drivers coming to our local events to try out the new Nationals site, as it was moved to Lincoln Nebraska starting this year. We have a ProSolo either this month or next month as well. Should be interesting. We usually have a bit over 100 drivers but we are planning on regular turnouts of 150+ on the nationals site weekends.

The site is fricken huge. Imagine 1/2 mile x 2 miles of completely uninterrupted concrete. No asphalt, no poles, no curbs. We set up the 1999 nationals course the end of last year and used about 1/5 of the available area.
