My Ride: Something Slow
Snowing on Monday, AutoX on Saturday

Even with 4 inches on the ground on Monday, Saturday was a 50+F day for our first autocross. It was a non points event, just a fun day to shake the cobwebs off

Fastest run from today. Car didn't want to put power down, seemed to be upset everywhere on the course, and my inputs were really choppy.

Despite getting owned by a Miata in RTR, finished a respectable 2nd in class and more importantly 12th in PAX even with the trouble I was having....

C&C appreciated.

Second fastest PFTD...less lunatic-ish

it was cold out (~50F) and in-between runs was a long wait...so they could never get to temp.

When they are cold, they make sure you know....When they are up to temp they calm down.

I need to see if I can shim the pad or something, because with the ZCP rotors they are annoying as hell on the street to and from the events

Having problems putting power down? Check rear alignment and tire pressure.
