    General opinion by all those at the April 4th Bristol autocross:


    "Insights ROCK".

    Thanks for bringing the I, E.

    2 seconds slower than Larry Boardman, in his 1998 Camaro 6spd V8.

    And yes, Completely annihilated a certain someone's Mirage. :)

    in the dry it did. i spun out on my ONLY dry run of the day. the nittoes were waaay too hard and i was entirely too stiff.

    I would like to thank E for telling me how to setup my tires and shocks. i ran a consistant 53.0xx 3-5 runs in the wet, but my front right caliper is sticking.

    ill have the picsn vids up when the car is empty and the battery charges a bit.

    Preliminary placeing......

    In what class they ran....

    1...someone...
    2...B with the 240sx
    3...Bill in the BMW
    4...Chris in the "Rage"
    5...Someone..else...


    In CSP...

    1...Some Porchy thing..
    2....prolly a built Miata...
    3.....Me in an old AE86.
    4...someone else

    In H Stock...

    1...a Farrari Enzo.
    2...E...in a base model Insight.
    3...some STI or WRX...I forgot...
    4...some othe Miata or something...


    In Rookie non stock...

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4....Travis in the 280Z
    5.


    I can't remember CRXeribuni's real name...so I didn't see him on the sheet...But there was a CRX that placed high.

    Props to everyone...even the Mirage...he did good...

    I had fun Drifting all day, the rain helped a lot on me getting some more control down pact.

    Wet, cold, hungry, thirsty, dirty, grimmy....and a few other things.....but I think it was a very fun day....The AE86 made it back home in one peice and survived after the torture I thru at it in the last week....damn thing won't break...and I beat the hell out of it. 1200+ mile road trip, a full day of drifting on a go-kart track, Mud from hell, 2 autocrosses...pushed real hard, Rain...and other crap I tryed to throw at it...

    The other 260Z is holding up well, but it still needs a ton of work...but it was a fun spin around the track....

    FTD...Fastest time of the day was around a 42-43....

    48 is fast, but if the rain wasn't there...I could have been faster, but I enjoyed getting some slideing pratice in. Your car should have been around a 48-53...and thats good.
