It was my first autocross every... best time that counted was 1:03 - clean (wityhout PAX multiplier). I was having issues with my AFM and MarkD tried to revert the software to the previous version in order to isolate the problem. Therefore on that run I was limited to 6000 RPM with the AFM disconnected so I was constantly bouncing off the rev limit . We then put the orginal tunned software back in and I was hoping for another run, but c'est ca; I've already completed 5 at the time.

New AFM is now installed this morning and the car runs much better now.

What a great autocross. I had a best time of 56.4 (clean) in my buddies bone stock MINI Cooper (non-S). I think once PAX (0.777) comes into play I'll have the best time of the day. Got a damn sunburn!

Nice time of 56s+!!! Not sure about this....but I think my best was 61s+. Ha...PAX! PAX will make it all interesting.

Those Mini's are perfect for these tight courses. For all those that weren't there - probably a dozen or so Mini's came out.

How did you all like the 2nd last, and last turn??? Can you spell TIGHT!!!

I have a ton of learning to do......

Ya we'll have to wait and see with the new rules this year. I ran a 55.0 (clean) in my stock 325e, except for dinan chip.

Yeah, it was one of the best course layouts so far. It was pretty fun. I wish I had pulled my car out of storage earlier though so I could have gotten used to it. Ah well, next time

Nice to meet everyone there, and hopefully more will come out afterwards.

The PAX system will make things interesting, appearently I'm in a pretty high class, I knew these mods would come back to bite me in the ass.

sweet run

Nelson,

Can't remember if it was your 3rd or 4th run. But we were all watching and knew it was a hot run.....until the last couple of turns and the final YELLOW pylon!!! Think it was a 56-57s run!!!!! All you heard was Awwwwwwww!!

All in all. A very fun day out. Good to put a face on some of the members that came out. We need more next time.

MAY 1st!
