And since when did you live in Kitchener? You said before you came all the time from Meadowvale. That's not that bad, neither is Streetsville. Streetsville to Vaughan is still 30km shorter than to Port Perry chief.
I'm in Milton, which is another 15km from Meadowvale. It's a stupid argument because someone is always going to get butt hurt over it and no one will be happy.

Yeah, I don't think my car will be ready so e60 it is. How about running an X5? Any rules against that? I'll also drag out my dslr and 70-200 for some snaps.

If it's stupid, then why the hell you arguing with me then? LOL.

I realized it's pointless afterwards. I don't care about driving far if it meant more people could come out, or we have a larger lot. But some people won't feel the same and get butt hurt.

Dammit, I just spent the last half hour working these out for myself!
Turns out I suck... either that or I need to take full advantage of FSP and rock some more mods for next year.

you shoulda dropped the low scores from the 5th or 6th completed race, not that it means anything with averaged scores...

4.27, lighter wheels, sticky tires, stainless brake lines, better pads and rotors, and some CF!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have really noticed how important tires are in autocrossing, I bought my current ones to get the milage I thought I would do this summer, probley get next summer outa them too ( 400 tread wear = sucks for autocross) , but am planning on a second set for autocross/track/cruise use!!!!!!!!!

Might get star spec or Falken 615's, hopefully on Koesi's or apex rims

yeah pretty much. Sways and camber I'd like to really play with. 4.27LSD, maybe, if Rob will let me buy it from him... and maybe his lightened flywheel. Brakes are a definate problem. Tires would be a bonus. We shall see.

I tell you guys a trick, it's sooooo simple but everyone, I mean most save 2 that I know of are missing. Go out and buy youselves a set of Dunlop Direzza Star Specs and watch 1 - 2 seconds drop off of your times and you will NOT change class. If I could have afforded it, that's what I would have been rocking all of the time. It is by far and away the stickiest street tire in the dry. If it rains it does ok, but it really shines in the dry. Forget all of those other mods, you may gain a tenth here and there, or feel but not quantifiable time...........Richie touched on it a few posts earlier. The single biggest performance improvement you could endow your car with is the best rubber money can buy. You'll accerlerate quicker because you have more grip, you'll brake better, because you have more grip, and your car will handle infinitely better, guess why? because you'll have more grip!!!! Believe me all, I've been doing this a long time.

Hmmmm, that reminds me; I think I have a set of starspecs lying around somewhere...

I want to bring the new car out to see what in can do at the autox, but I may actually have a shot at placing well this season (if only because some key competitors didn't show up), so it would be best if I stuck with my current car.

Anyone want to drive my swap car? lol

Anyone who is looking for more autox, there are a host of other series running in toronto. Funny part is, almost all of them are in brampton too. Anyone who doesn't mind the drive to (or lives near) can get in on those leagues as well
