With the stock, non sport suspension, (except for a Steeda sway bar), the 5 speed S did well, finishing 11th of 15 cars.

The car accelerates great, and I got a sweet scratch on the straightaway every lap, going from 2nd to 3rd gear. On the stock 195/65-15s the car pushed a lot in the turns, and tore up the front tires pretty good. I wondered how the disc/ drum brake combo would hold up, and it worked very well, even after a 20 minute session.

I'm looking forward to going back as I modify the car, to improve times and finishes.
Hey where is that track exactly? I would be willing to go! Sounds like a lot of fun, but 11th place out of 15 with everything stock is pretty good.
