Dixie is just too far and the weekend before (right? need to check the calendar), and I really did not like the style of course last year for the Subaru to do well on street tires. That may change, but it's just not in the budget to drive out right now unless I had a helluva codrive deal.

So when do your new tires come in James? Will you have any events before the NT to sort out pressures and any handling issues?

Pat Griffith (slowWS6 on here) is looking for a ride at this event if any one needs a codriver. He has some decent Subaru experience, including codriving my ESP WRX at Nationals last year.

No new tires yet, will likely get them just before or at the event, and scrub them in at the practice day. I still need to get a plastic trim piece or two do Doug doesn't DSQ me haha.

Ha ha. Better get those trim pieces in place!

Also, watch out for Hiromoto and Peebles in the STX RX-8...

The car has kindof been a nightmare to drive at local events to be honest, the only time when it felt decent was on concrete at one event....the rest were on insanely slippery asphalt with <40-degree temperatures and driving winds. And with @ss tires. I think once I just bite the bullet and get a set of NEW tires on it I can start making changes. Driving it the other day almost made me thing the rear VLSD is dead as well. 2010 will be a "rebuilding year"....not even my driving awesomeness will overcome a few of the issues underlying.

Same here James. I just plan to play things low key and see where the cards fall at a few "bigger" events.

STX for 2013?

Default

I should be there, but in the BMW. should have my LSD in, but will be on Kumho XS for now, competing in SM against R-comps 50mm wider, and M3's with nearly a liter of displacement on me.

That, combined with my un-awesome driving skills should result in some hilarity.

The BMW will probably be gone at the end of the season, but I'll transfer the 245/17 r-comps. I'll be getting before nationals to the WRX for the next season in D-stock again. (or maybe I'll just run the WRX.)

Looks like Koni still doesn't have adjustables for the 08' rex, ohh well.

I'll call the BMW a fun experiment. Actually, this has got me thinking about getting rid of the BMW. Since the wife isn't using the WRX as a DD anymore, maybe it's time to call it on the BMW.

Here is the build fun:

Registered in STX, #199. Lone Subaru so far, yikes!

Hopefully Patrick L. will be #99. We'll be on either 1.5-year-old Dunlops or whatever he brings (haha), 245/40-17.

PS-- "my still car costs lest than your shocks" ... it would not fit in the Sponsor line haha.

Nope. These are off of last year's STU Champion (regional), so they have been beat on. I hope to have them installed this week, as well as swap the springs, set heights, and sort a few things out before our local event this weekend (3/7). This will be the first "warm weather" autocross, and hopefully will give a little bit better idea of how the car is doing instead of this ice skating crap haha.

I'm coming to defend my STU win from last year. I have to admit that I went to the darkside 'cause Erik and Beth are letting me play in their BMW.

I still only own and drive Subarus at home. 02 WRX wagon with E-85 (go to town car) and 3 GC toys. The STi went away to make room for an airplane.

I look forward to seeing the gang.

James - No HS ride without brakes? I swear that wagon was under wieght last year with all the rust. =: )

Pat L - Do you have wide 15" wheels for sale?

Rob - Can I co-drive with you later this year?

haha I drove that car home from the Tour with the hazard lights on, and parked it for 2 months...then raffled it off for $10 tickets. It was hilarious. What a rustbucket. But it was worth a National Tour win. Too bad I had old Nitto NT01's on the front and even older V710's on the rear, I could have had tire money

I am bringing my 15x10 down with me but Briane Corn is buying them from me as she got first dibs if I ever wanted to sell them.
