User error? I registered without any problems. :-)

Nope. There was no link from the page.

By the way, speaking of user error, I expect to see you make more in autoXing since you'll be driving alone.

There was a link there yesterday. I registered around 8am.

No problem driving alone. You only navigated for me a couple times this season anyway. :-P

Not for long. I have R's :lol:

PS- Your still 4 sec's slower on a faster track than me.

I've got a spare set of wheels coming (hopefully). Don't tempt me, R's are cheap for my size wheel. :-)

4 seconds? Big deal. You are forgetting I haven't done ANY engine mods yet and I'm still learning. :grin:

Power is nothing for AutoX. Handling is more important.

Pete

BTW- You're trash talking alot. Come to DSP if you want. 4 secs is still quite a bit. :lol:

I realize that power isn't everything (or anything in this case). It would be helpful to have a larger power-band and a higher redline (chip).

I've got handling. I'm just lacking experience right now (and decent brakes <--my latest excuse). I might run DSP next season, just for fun. Maybe it will make you work harder as you see my times gaining on yours throughout the season. :grin:

We'll see.

Your car has easily the capability to be right with mine and others in DSP. You just need eek everything out of it which will take some more seat time.

As for next year, you never know what class I may be in.

I think I need to either adjust the suspension or play a little more with the tire pressures (I'm hoping for tire pressures). It just doesn't rotate the same as it did on my old tires. Maybe it's just me. :-?

Uh, oh. Different class? What are you planning now?

If you want the car to rotate more lower the tire pressures. The reason it's not doing it as much as before is because the ES100's are far more grippy that those old Goodyears.

As for me and what car, we'll have to see after the winter. I'm not sure if I'll run the 323is next year. :roll:

I'm running 44-45F and 42R. I used to run 40F/42R. I have to run 44+ in the front or I roll them over. What pressure do you think I should be running to help rotation? Some runs it feels great others it don't. Maybe I just need to adjust my driving to compensate.

No more 323is? :shock:
I can't wait to see what the next teamBARrowed car is. :grin:

You should lower your rears 2lbs and see what that does for you. Keep the front where it is.

I think they will roll if I drop them by 2 lbs. They looked like they were right on the edge. Maybe I'll give it a shot anyway.

You probably used the old html website.
That one I have to remember when to open and close registration.
With the new php site registration opens and closes by time and date.

Next year we won't be using the old site at all.

Ahhhhhh.... You gotta love the trash talk. :grin:
