    no cones on my last 3 runs
    know exactly where I left a full second or so on my best run....

    Stupid $100k Porsche GT3 kept me off the podium. That's simply not fair :P

    Also, I noticed that my buddy Darius (the guy with the black Maxima) is listed as driving a Red 240sx in Modified 1...uh...hmm. He was in a black maxima in X3 lol...
    You better tell Mr. Darius to register with the correct car - http://www.dlbracing.com/clubs/drive...4215&LMID=2913

    Please make a post in the results correction thread. Thanks.

    ugh man 1st run 46.748 and I think it was clean too... damn stop box! Oh well, I can stop holding my breath for that clean 47.593... Was anticipating the results wondering if it were clean or not.

    and WOW, there are actually people who made 4 clean runs. Congrats to:
    Steele, Jeff
    McVeay, Craig
    Higgins, Christopher
    Arthur, David

    4 out of 115(?) had clean runs, damn lol. I've never seen so many +1-9 and +OFF's, ever! lmao.

    Moose and I were there all day. I took 250-300 each heat and the second AM group had more because I let Bogdan abscond with my camera. We're working on uploading now and then I'll post the link.

    Talking

    HAHA who would have thought a 5-series would take showroom!?! What an awesome day, it really helped to work the course first and see everyone chopping up the slalom and blasting the last cone through the chicane. I thought I hit like 3 cones on my last run which was 50.5 or so but it was only 1!!! damn it

    Thanks, but the trade off was a fastest time of only 55.969 and fifth in my class. I was tip-toeing through the boxes. Next time I won't be so afraid to sacrifice a few cones.

    I hope people still had fun. It is more than than normal, but hitting cones is part of autocross.

    For the next event we can do 6 pointer cones and a 1/4 mile stop box.

    I almost took this exact line (I went wider before the entrance to the chicane) through the course on my best run, but it looks like you still had almost 2 seconds on me! Sorry to see that you nailed a stop box cone, that was a great run.

    Overall, I'm very happy with my line, time, and place! I felt much more composed than I did last season, and I attribute this to not hauling ass into slow turns and understeering like crazy. I really tried to focus on maintaining momentum just before the islands exiting the lower lot so that I could be flat-out for a longer period of time leading up to, and through, the chicane.

    EDIT: Since Josh likes to mention stock settings, I thought I'd say that I'm 100% stock in case he says otherwise (Yes, Potenza RE05As are stock on the first gen MS3...so is the K04 at 15.6PSI.)
