Should be fun and interesting. For me there is the Pro class and Overall season championship on the line. If shawn wins and I get 3rd, shawn takes both. So I either have to finish 2nd, or shawn not finish 1st easy enough right?

Oh yea, I can't drive my car cause its STX now, so I have to codrive someone elses car......that ive never driven before.....doh!

Dang! It's already full. At least I'm 3rd on the wait list.

BTW - who's going to the final TSCC auto-x this sunday in Winston? Should be fun, the dixie-classic events are always fun, if they're run right.

Hmm... I might go to that. Although, I will be looking for a co-drive, as I don't know that Shane will be there, and I will most likely be driving the RX. (No it doesn't go fast on those snow tires! lol..... )

I'll be there beating up on some STS boys and girls. Fred's wife will be there too, but methinks she won't be quite as violent...



Later.

Forgot to add: maybe Steven and Peter could co-drive, so Peter can get some tips from an experienced driver. What do you think, guys?

Kevin great idea, but I don't think it will fly over good with the one who makes that decision (not me). I'll let you know Steven if your interested, nothing personal. And if not I could still use some help.

Anyone who is open for a co-driver is cool with me. Actually, it would be interesting to see how a new-age RS runs. If not, I understand.

P.S. Iím Picking up my magnetic numbers from the sign shop tomorrow, 8" x 20" (555 ) white with black lettering, $17.50 for a side. Should be a little easier putting them on and off.

Good thing that you don't have carbon fiber doors also

I got some magnetic numbers, too. Got a magnetic 1' x 2' sheet at Michael's (hobby store) and cut out what I wanted. Did two 2's, two 5's, and two each of STSL. Now I can just swap the numbers for me (25) and Tina (52), and add the L for her.

Also removed the camber bolts (since I found out they're currently illegal for STS) and went back to stock engine/ transmission mounts (since I found out there's somebody who'll protest).

I think I'm going to get the camber/ caster plates for the front when I replace the stock springs and struts, and put the camber bolts on the rear (they're supposed to be legal next year). I may end up putting the WRX rotors back on and leaving them on, and putting the engine mounts back in, and just running STX next year, so that I don't have to deal with the autox prep every time...

Oh, yeah, went out to the night event at the ESA tonight, and Tom gave a friend of mine a ride in the STX WRX. He was mightily impressed. He's planning to go to Laurinburg, don't know if he's gonna race yet. Hopefully so. Anyway, see you guys there.

Haven't heard anything other than speculation. And the camber bolts were listed as legal for a LOOOONG time on the Motorsports Forum, until somebody pointed out recently that they weren't. I only got them because I "knew" they were legal, and cheap. Not ready to do the whole suspension yet, but wanted to do something. I guess I'll just wait and see if I can use them on the rear next year.

Oh, yeah, the numbers - the sheet was $10 and I spent about an hour printing the numbers in the style I wanted, tracing them on the sheet, and cutting them out. It would've been about $50 plus a couple of hours going to Raleigh and back to order and pick up numbers at the sign shop. I was going to Michael's in Cary for framing supplies anyway, so I don't count that toward the numbers. My car will definitely be a lot neater at this autox.

Where did you hear this? There is, in fact, a discussion going on about this very topic on the Street Touring Yahoo! group. It is currently not legal and I've heard of no plans to make it so next season (though I'd love to see it happen, myself, as I want rear camber bolts).

That's probably smarter...hehe...of course, then you have to run against Tom's STX WRX...

Quote:

Next season, crank pulleys will be replaceable in Street Touring and Street Prepared regardless of their damper status (accessory pulleys are already legal for us).

Well, don't repeat this to the ST list as I don't want to start another war, Howard told me the SEB will "more then likely" be allowing them next season. There is no reason for them NOT to be allowed. Im going to go ahead and install my camber bolts in the rear tommorow and get my alignment done. This way I can do my testing with the rear camber that I will want. If the rule doesnt get passed, I will just slot the struts and put the stock bolts back in for next season

Well, I'll be kicking Tom's butt once I get my coilovers, anyway, so I'm not too worried about him...

Bahahahahahahahaha!!!!

No, but seriously, I haven't made up my mind yet whether I want to go at this really seriously and kick some ayss, or just go have fun and end up in whatever class the mods I want put me in. I might just wait until my wife graduates and gets a good job and a used S2000/ MRSpyder/ ... something, and we retire the RS from autox duty before I get serious about it.

But judging from the tire wear I had at Laurinburg last time (with the camber bolts), I don't really think I need the camber bolts in the front, anyway. It'll be fun learning all this suspension setup stuff, though.

so how many i-clubers are gonna be at Laurinburg? I was just bumped up from the wait list so I'll be there getting beat up in DSP. Who knows, Steven co-drove with me this past sunday and totally destroyed my times by over two seconds so I know that I'm just not driving to the full extent of the car. Maybe I'll go for broke since this will be the last auto-x of the year for me. Hope to see some of you guys out

Should be at least 4, including you:

Fred, trhoppe, Burnout, Evegan.

My wife will be co-driving with me, too. I'll be out around the course shooting photos for me and the club most of the time that I'm not driving, so you might not see me much unless you're out there with me. Definitely want to check out your car, though; if we all get there early, we can hang out a little.

Oh, and why don't you go for broke on every run? I know I do... it's WAAAYYY more fun than caring about the cones' feelings.

Later.

well, I guess I was taking it a bit easy at first cause the car was new to me. I've never had a car made after 1989 before, let alone a 2000. Who cares about cones? They're asking for it just standing around the course like that getting in my way.
I'll definately be out there tearing things up, hope to see you all there.

You guys....thats how you go slooooooooooooooooow.

When you go out there to "tear things up" you will be much slower then if you go and drive "slowly" Right Kevin? Remember the last ESA fun run?
