Alas, another missed event that sounded awesome. Still trying to figure out WTF is going on with my shock/spring setup. The front is in the weeds even though they are adjusted all the way up. The rears are like 4x4 and they are adjusted all the way down. This sucks.

Maybe swap the shocks front and rear? Probably not the issue but maybe something that simple is easily overlooked?

When I had Koni's on my car and I stiffened the front shocks too much, it wouldn't turn in. Too little rebound on the rear made the car unstable.

Here's my 3rd and fastest run of a 50.1xx with a bunch of mistakes.

I learned that a nearly stock 40 year old car doesn't autocross well, but still had a great time.

Finally got around to uploading my runs. I forgot to record my fastest run, which was only slightly faster than a CS ND :shock:
