    Waterbury, Friday AM

    Funny enough, right after you guys sped off (Thanks for the cut-off Travis!) mall security showed up and GRILLED me about the gathering. Fuckers. They told me I couldn't take photos and escorted me out of the lot.

    Yeah, iRomeo (Turborage) said he was gonna be checking in from the hotels and the such, and with 6 big-time posters in the same hotel I thought this thread would be slammed with posts on their progress.

    I just got off the phone with pissedoffsol. Things are "Totally fucking awesome" and they are enroute to the lair.

    Autocross was exciting as hell ! Great track, good turn-out and one particular nasty accident.

    (Remember the blue STI wagon? Won't be seeing it for a while. Something odd happened during his finish line deceleration, and the car flew into the curb, through a small tree and into the woods. The people living in the neighborhood next to the school even responded. Driver is ok, if not quite shaken and the Scoob got lots of front-end peppering, and a busted up wheel and axle.)

    FCSCC has begun policing their tire brands - And Azenis will put you (as it did I) into a "Street Tire" class. Was I in CSP (Where I belong) I would walked away fairing quite well. Instead I turned up last-place in what is now dubbed "The Miata class". One off-course (Who would I be if not for my moniker "Steve the Gate-Misser?") and for some odd reason my tires pumped to 45 psi at the gas station - Which must not be calibrated because I ran 3 runs with -> 65 <- psi. I backed the pressures to F-R 40-32 and ran a killer run - But that whole racing segment was disqualified for the accident.

    This looks like the year of the Rookies at FCSCC. Quite a good class of rookies are in this time (And a large class - somewhere between 30 and 45) so this year is going to see some heavy hitters.

    Overall FTD went to Sam again - So we need to hit this track with a vengeance!

    it was great. got some good rear end work.... rob/bill did fuckin excellent getting into the competition. the agx's on the rear worked out really well, didnt really burn off hardly any tire though. met some new friends and picked up a few idea's for the girl's car.

    neverending supply of mirage jokes all weekend. <_<

    couldnt post, fuckin hotel wouldnt let me dial out the 1 to get aol access numbers.

    took lots of pics, and ill post them tommorow/night.

    yup- we're home.

    had an awesome time. we all got sideways, alternators were squeeking, front bumper supports were sparking, and 1 cop later, we're all home, safe, and ticket free (at least until we all split up)

    I have over 80 min of video.... but i can't fucking figure out how to DL it through the USB. i think i nedd to get an iLink cable. that, and my copy of premier is fubar..... so i need another copy of that *hint*

    This Saturday is an autocross in Westchester and Waterbury, then Sunday is CART.

    I was going to attempt the Westchester autox, but i found some safety gear under the driver's seat of my whip so I need to show up in Waterbury on saturday.

    working on the video now. it's REALLY choppy. It looked much cleaner on the view finder. bill's g/f did 80% of the filming, and obviously she's not a professional video taker. there's also a LOT of a crap on the tape...

    I'm over 400 MB right now, semi compressed... lol I gotta shrink it down to about 100mb, or i won't be able to host it anywhere. so, editing is going to be a biotch.
    I'm using windows movie maker too... my premiere is bunk. so, it's going to be in wmv format instead of divx
