    for those who have adobe acrobat capable browsers...

    i finished 4th overall, 2 guys ahead of me had hoosiers, one had falkens. if i had hoosiers i would have probably won the event, as hoosiers are usually good for at least 2 seconds. they will come soon...along with a brand new ITR shortblock.

    btw, does anyone else auto-x on this site, seems like there aren't many people sharing their experiences/results.

    auto crossing in the snow and ice is fun :( This april is when it starts up around here. I will have a few tales to tell when the time comes

    Gabe, autoX your rex. Rex's handle sweet right off the showroom floor and didn't you lower yours? Nothing will break, just try it once, you'll love it. oh and gabe i need to talk to you to see if you can make me some magnetic numbers for when i do autoX (i dont want permanet vinal shit thats rice)

    adam, you saw the schudule is up right?

    I want something kinda like this

    ford gt1 #ing (keeped it 56k freindly)

    is it possible to make it so it has beveled edges so it would be less likely to be blown/riped off from drag? I was thinking about some # that could be turned upside down to make a diffrent # like 19 can be turn upside down to make 61 with the right font. (not a super big deal but it would be nice) I will have to go out tommrow and see how big i would need it any rough estiment how much this would cost? (magnets must be semi strong so they dont blow off)

    Oh and at the moment you have more suspention mods than me but hopefully i will change that in april (teins are going on)

    owning the 2.5RS by more than 2 seconds = ownage :)
