I saw you, talking to a guy in a blue 330 while you were turning on the street which leads to langstaff. Too bad things got cancelled though i was looking forward to checking things out, maybe joining up next year. I was going to meet you guys at the Golden Griddle but i had just eaten a McD's BLT Breakfast and was pretty full

When/Where is the next one?

haha, I was hoping it would rain too!

But main reason is because one of the organizers did not show up and he had the pilons but no one could get ahold of him.

On the flipside, Thinair did a nice happy tailslide in the parking lot.

Yes and most likely in October as one of the organizers mentioned that day. They don't know when exactly but will keep the members posted.

There will be an Autocross on Oct 19, so the made up one from last weekend will probably be early October.

Good stuff, so I can still make 2-3 more this month. Not a total waste.

Does anyone know if the auto-x courses can be viewed before the date we participate in the actual Auto-x? I want to look over the course and get a good feel of how the course is run. Rather than just the few min they give you to walk the course before the actual run.

Does someone walk you through the traffic on the street before you drive in it?

You won't look like a fool, auto-x is a learning experience, hitting a cone means you have to learn to go around it the next time instead of over it.

Plus, the first run is like the practice run, the times don't count.

Next time I have to slow down. I was too worried about getting a good time and ended up loosing too much time by hitting 11 pilons!

Hopefully next time I'll be more sucessful.

Did you swap your control arm bushings to M3 bushings? If so, do you notice if the turn in is better at all?
