Have a Nice Day? 1st Autocross= My WRX dominates

Well, i didnt really dominate, but I did find out that a stock WRX can kick down some arse.
On a really tight but somewhat long autocross track that kept me in first gear the whole time,( it was kinda nice not to have the opportunity to grind my gears on my maiden voyage), the WRX was really fun and easyish to drive.
I hit a few cones, but they were the 'just barely hit' variety.
I was the only WRX or subaru driver there and actually had my own fan club of two japanese guys wearing Subaru shirts and telling me i was a super stud just shy of Richard Burns.
All in all i had a killer time and plan on running as many auotx's as possible. Met lots of cool folks and got plenty of good advice.

Big thanks to all regular iclubbers whose info is most helpful.
out

LOOk here to see a couple of pics:

I dominated my class at my first autocross too! Unfortunately, my ego was kept in check by the fact that winning my class meant I beat a v6 Mercury Mistique and a Pontiac Grand Am. That was my first autocross, and I only had around 2k miles on my car, so I kinda took it easy. Now I have 6400 miles and have developed a larger set of nuts, so I can't wait until this sunday! Watching the french grand prix just before heading out should increase my bravado a little more too. As long as there are no big wrecks

Keith, I can't believe I went through the trouble to paste that link into a new browser window just to see a 160x120 image. I had to squint.
