I think you can use an SCR tuner box and a laptop to log the individual wheel speeds. I'm not sure about that, though.

I know they are back at AMS. I think they have done some repaving there but other than that, I don't know. Been a long time since I have run there.

We went there for the test n tune at the first of the year and if the lot we used was there new lot, I wouldn't go as it was coming up in some sections and not bad in others. The other side that we didn't run on might be better, but we didn't go over on that part of AMS.

So, did anyone ever find a combined total for Sat and Sun... or was it just a 2 day individual scored event??

Looks like the abs issue is fixed and it must have been another abs speed sensor on the other wheels. Only one test drive and it worked so far but I will continue to test drive it and hopefully it is fixed. I may make the Huntsville event next weekend after all to get a good test if the weather is good.

Would have loved to see Kenton run some more CS national events in the RX8.

Based off my runs, I'd say the gearing would have been pretty bad for an ND. With that said, he had to be "off pipe" in the turn arounds.

I watched him from up top and he doesn't necessarily drive the traditional tight autocross lines.

Uh, well keep in mind he is TOMO's codriver so umm he's pretty damn good.

That said, I can't imagine many instances where I'd think and RX8 would be able to beat an ND...and Rick is no slouch.

Ok I watched his wife's vid. Couldn't find his.

Obviously a super talented driver, but it was a wonderful RX-8 course. There was one "dig", but still they kept the car at about 4k RPM. There were 3-4 spots where the RX8 was in the 60-61 MPH range for a sustained period. Those would all be shifts for the ND. And I'm going to assume that he wrung it out even better so he prob got to 63-64 MPH, especially at the finish.

I kinda wish I still had mine for track stuff now that Kevin has it all fixed up :D
