No problem dude! I was glad to help out.

I knew I wasn't in the running for any of the top spots anyway. So, what the heck. So I'd get a little more tire wear. No biggie.

I should have called you Monday. The wheels came in. I'll see about posting a couple of pics I took of them on the scale at work.

I let Donnie drive my car one race... course it was an experience for me as well since I hadn't run on race compound before. Wow, never knew the inside rear could come up that much! (7-8" without exageration!)

That's great!

I spent half the season trying to talk my friend of www.quattrodomination.com into trying autocross, and in his first event I had top score for ST with a 72.187, and he couldn't go faster than 75's with his aging Audi 80. I knew he was better than the three seconds behind me would indicate, and if he didn't have some better hardware, he'd drop out.

So, I let him use my RS for a full 6 race season, and he ended up with 5572 points to my 5569 points - beat me in my own d*mn car by 3 points! He returned the favor by polishing 40 intakes for free, and it was only three points anyways...

The tires do show the results of 13 autocrosses combined, but the money I saved on the intake polishing will replace them.

Would I do it again? Yes.


PS: I also let a third ST driver, Roger Nallathamby, race my car at the last event Sunday when he blew out his heater core after his 3rd of 5 runs. He was 1st place in ST before moving to x class, and was 0.6 seconds + a cone slower than me. Whew!

I almost had to do that this coming weekend.
My car has been at the dealer for more than 2 weeks for tranny problems. I was not sure that I would get it back in time for the weekends race. My buddy Jeff was going to let me use his car, but thank god I am going to get my car back today.
