Boy did I suck. :p Off course the first two runs.

I had fun, though. :) The xi understeered like crazy.

I took all the pictures of cars in the first heat, Clyde325xiT took all the ones in the second.

Edit: Clyde took the vast majority of them while playing with my camera. :)

This is you doing 300MPH???!!!!



:lmao: :lmao:

Btw, good to see a wagon at AutoX. :D Where's your number though? :dunno:
I'm guessing that the blurry picture is of a UFO. You know, that one frame in a roll of film that mysteriously shows a UFO. And it's just out of focus enough to not tell extacly what it is...

OK, maybe I've been spending too much time in the corn fields of the Midwest...:eeps:
I was 110. No pictures of me. :(
I need to get out there and try that too:thumbup: Looks like a great day and some nice photo work by Clyde:)

I know this problem far to well
too much body roll:( Need sways don't we Nick:banghead:
Hhhmmm.......whats the UTOG of these tires? 10? Man, those things look sticky...

Never did look, but the other one of those that was there had FTD. That one had the golden cone award. :) He actually dragged a cone through about two thirds of the course. Took out four on that run and then four more in the stop box on his second.
SOMEBODY is going to come and take pictures of me running next time. :mad:
A combination of super sticky Hoosiers and a parking lot that is falling apart :eek: The guy is very aggressive, and I've seen him take a few cones on his first runs in the past. He's also very fast, usually taking FTD as well. Lotus Sevens are :bigpimp:!!! :D

I love the E36 lifting a wheel :lmao:
If I ever get R compounds on my xi, I bet it would be easy. :)

Or too-stiff anti-roll bars :)

I suspect the xi would just slide then. :p All seasons are anoying me more and more lately. :)

Then get some performance tires


My replacement set of S-03s should be here soon :)

I will. :p After I burn off these all seasons (should be right around the beginning of winter. :))

I think you should then go for 2 sets of wheels. Get a dedicated set for your performance tires and keep some winter friendly version on the OEM 73s:dunno: :D

Too cheap, much as I want those SSRs...

Did you not disable the ADB?
You mean the "318"? That's one of mine :D

The two I like best, Nick took.

If only the focus was sharper in this one:


Focus in this one also, and if the horizon was level (although there is enough safe room to crop and fix):


I also like this one that I took of the green Lotus Seven. If you look close at the full size image, you can see that the cone in the foreground is not in full contact with the asphalt :D :
