I went to every autocross I could last year, and had a blast.

I have found that there is a whole level of vehicle control that I didnít know existed (and I thought I was a pretty damn good driver). When I realized that I was leaving a lot of inherent performance untapped, I decided to leave my SVTF stock until I used up what the car had to offer. When I do modify, itís clear that for me the moneyís to be made in tire/wheel and suspension upgrades. Then engine upgrades (maybe nitrous for Saturday nights until then?).

Perhaps "hobby" is to mild a word for those of us who are hooked. "Compusion" of "Addiction" would be more accurate.
