CONGRATS!!!

I was just thinking she looked like Tyler. Poor kid... (just kidding) :lol:

Looks like we are going to have to start a junior kart program here locally in a few years!

Since none of my VWs are currently mobile unless riding on the trailer, I guess I will miss this one. Maybe the rest of the ETR VW guys can hold the torch for me. :lol:

Thanks for the link. I'll have to check it out.

Have fun, neighbor.

E-Bay Where else is there to shop in the internet? --BillyM E-dicted Been looking there too....but just wondered if there was anything else out there. Personally, I prefer to try them on before buying. I bought mine at a motorcycle shop. Mine was expensive but I bought a composite full face helmet....

Unfortunately, this one is too early in the season for me. My cars are currently in pieces. One of them doesn't even have paint on it. Any chance of doing another one in late spring?

I see what you mean, I guess. You can run a WRX in ESP, but to be competitive, it will cost a lot of $$$. Unfortunately, you just described a lot of classes. At least, when you are talking about the size of my bank account. Funny how FSP ends up being one of the cheapest classes I can run in since ...

Mark, what I meant was..... How can a WRX and an STi be in the same Street Prep class, when they are so far apart on the stock class? Anything that would make a WRX have near STi performance (i.e. boost control, re mapped fuel+timing, and new gearbox w/ front lsd) would put the WRX in SM. Update/ba...

Actually, I just read Dave's post... He is probably more correct than me. :oops: However, I would be surprised if any of the local SM guys would care if you ran there. Maybe some of them can chime in here.

Curt, the tire warmer thing really doesn't work in a Pro Solo. The fastest driver ends up running first and on the cold tires. By the time the second driver usually gets to run, the tires are cold again. The only time you end up running against another class is in the challenge, as Mark said. WHen y...

hmm, maybe....but doesn't make sense to me since WRX is D stock and STi is A stock. Uh... much better performance, maybe? Would you want to run a stock WRX against a stock STi? BTW, Leadfoot is right on the ESP classing. I thought STX might be a better fit but the STi is specifically excluded from ...

Just wanted to bring this one back up to everyone's attention. The entry limit is 200 and as of right now, there are 146 registered on the web. There may be more that are registered that aren't on the web. In other words, if you plan to attend, or you think you might, you need to get your entry in v...

I am pretty sure that I am going to participate this season, is this something that I need? I have not done it before. TIA If you plan on making modifications to your car for autocross then it would be in your best interest to buy a rulebook. That way you don't end up doing something that would put...
