Well my car is officially quieter

Because of Calabogie noise requirements, I had to put another muffler on the car - i chose to run an in-line 4x9 magnaflow, so now I have 2 on the car!

Not too sure - I blipped it a few times last night but not too much... car was cold, and it was late. It seems as though the tone is a bit lower, but it didn't lose all the rasp. I'll let you know soon

see link above for the race 3 videos.... they FINALLY uploaded.

Ok, my AutoX slump has ended. I finally bit the bullet and picked up some race tires - i chose the Kumho V710s.

This is what happened:



I had FTD (fastest time of day) up to the last run when I got beat by a Lotus Elise. First AutoX podium this year though, so I'm really happy.

Nice. I love the dedication. I also love that everybody pulled together to help you out.

This was one heck of a Parking lot repair Shawn, amazing dedication and well done

You really got to come out to other events like Mosport. Can you do the Ontario Time Attack - Nationals on Aug 26 - 28?

oops! thanks Klaus!

Yeah it really was a lot of fun - succeeding was that much better

It seems as though my calendar is clear for that weekend, but funds are running very low these days - I'm not sure if I'll be able to scrounge the $$$ for the entrance fee let alone gas, etc... although I would love to.

I'll pencil it in, but have to decide closer to the event whether it's feasable or not.

I noticed I have a leaking head gasket (pressure building up in the cooling system), so I'll have to get that fixed in the next few weeks as well.

Well I've been postponing the head gasket repair but it's finally time to get it done. Working for 8Legs has kept me busy the past few weeks and this week will be the same, but next week the head will come off for sure! Unfortunately I won't be able to do the time attack on the 26-28, but I am planning on heading to Mosport in October with the ASE lapping club.

Anyways, I had another autocross last weekend - here was my best run with Barrie in the passenger seat:



That run got me 3rd place in A-class. So far I'm sitting 4th in the championship, including dropped events.
