The new stuff is great, I have so much more low end torque even off boost that I don't bog down in the slow corners when I stay in 2nd. Boost comes in close to the same rpm (about 200 lower than before).

I just got back from driving to South Dakota for my cousin's wedding and the car was great. No droning on the highway and very little noise increase over stock at cruising speeds (none of the states north of here have 93 octane though but the tune worked okay with all the 91).

Congrats to 14stu for winning the stu class at yesterday's SCCA autocross!

You were a little over a second faster than Jim Harris too! Not only did you catch him, you smoked him!

When and where is the next autocross coming up. I haven't been yet because I have a couple tires low on tread (having fun sliding around lol) and I don't know if it would pass the inspection. No cord showing though.

Jim ended the day with mechanical problems so the margin of victory could have been due to his problems.

I have to give a big thanks to the Saturday Arlington meet for helping me fix my last minute exhaust leak issues before the race.

I ALMOST caught Jim Harris in his fully prepped EVO X.

It was a hot day but it was still a lot of fun.

Jim Harris beat me by .001s on Saturday at the BMW autox at the Texas Motor Speedway Bus Lot. I was a little disappointed.

If you want to go as a co-driver I wouldn't mind hooking you up.

Man, that is really awesome! Would love to get some co-drive on (especially since i have already paid my yearly registration). Kinda short notice for me since i didn't see this till just now...don't know if i will be able to move plans with the family on Sunday but it's worth a try.

Thanks for the offer!

Sam sorry for the unfortunate luck of not beating Jim. You'll get him next time.

Dude, it was an adrenaline rush like no other... Riding with Sam the first time, I nearly **** my pants. But I managed to turn out some pretty sweet runs and take 4th in the novice class!

Nick put down incredible times for a first timer (I think he beat the Stu Mustang). I managed to take first in Stu and beat Jim by 1.5s

Nick beat Curtis Frisbee (the guy who runs the novice Evo x)for team Subaru domination (a brz took first in novice).

Here its the video from my fastest run on Sunday:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dovs...e_gdata_player

All 3 of my fastest runs were good enough for first place which is uncharacteristic for the class which usually goes down to the wire.

Nice rum Sam! What is your GoPro mounted? Seems like a pretty good spot.

I have my GoPro mounted upside down next to the rearview mirror on the passenger side. With it inside I can start and stop it just before and after my runs so I don't have to do any editing.

All of the local groups have loaner helmets, but some require you to buy a head sock for $1-$5.
