just got back. i liked the set up of the course because it tested me in a way that i hadnt been in previous events.

2 main notable points where a mid speed 2500rpmish turn into a straight where i found out on the low end celicas do not perform well.
and then in a small S turn where i had to downshift to first, which took me two runs to go from high speed 2nd brake brake brake and shift to 1st

at this event i also saw how outclassed i am in BSP.
the FTD car was in BSP(TurboWRX) and ran a 49.2 with the avg. of the day was around 54ish.
I will probably try out DSP for a couple events and see if its more my kind of cars

it was a test event to play around and get used to my suspension set up.

all in all it was alot of fun and cant wait to get back to philly and start running there.

At our events so far in milwaukee, i didnt get that low in the rpms to downshift. The celi's are slow when its down in the low rpms frown.gif

What times did you end up running?

yeah it was a surprise to everyone when they set it up. after my second run i got used to it and kind of liked it. i had a smooth transition from 2nd to 1st.

the main main problem was trying to gain speed from that low rpm in 2nd gear. i had to feather the pedal to be able to keep my rpms steady so i can exit and gain speed quicker than what i did in the beginning which was staying a constant speed around the turn, and then gassing it on the exit, and it took a few seconds to build up speed. it sucked
my times where(all estimates till i get the final results)

Off Course (6 cones in slalom)
69.936 +1 cone (+2sec)
64.961 +1
61.914


i was ahead of a vette until he pulled a 59.911 his last run
there was a ASP Porsche 911 and a AS S2000 that i got faster times than
there where a few other cars that i had better times
i know if i had gotten at least 2 more runs i would have gotten down to 58

So what your saying is that you did not do as well as you thought you would, so you decided to remedy this by buying a new sticker for your car? laugh.gif

just basic odds and ends. money is going into the camera and auto-x events.
maybe farther along down the road when my warranty is up. cams. and if it every pops up again, supercharge, but thats a longshot

Looks like overall for you personally, you progressed throughout the day. I dont know if its just me, but when i see a higher performance car just a second or two ahead of me i really try to push myself more to feel like i really did good that day. If you were keeping up with a vette thumbsup.gif on that one.

Did you film your runs?

Also i just bought "the gripper" and i am very impressed at how stable it really is!

Thats so awesome. I went AutoXing sunday as well. We just got the times back today. I ended up in 9th out of 17 on the PAX. 2/2 in my class by a half of a second. No camera's or anything but it's a blast. Not bad for only my third event.
