I'm in EP because of my gutted hatch. But in my region, that might be better than SM.

Just remember SLOW IS FAST, but not too slow. I've noticed alot of people out there push through turns because they were coming in too hot.

To quote Carrera26's sig

Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...

These couldnt be truer words spoken. Just go out and have a good time.

I run in SM in the two clubs I belong to, for obvious reasons though . Around these parts it seems like everybody and their mother is in street modified. That class is always growing, mostly because of the sport compact scene. It's cool though because more people are getting turned on to the sport, so that's always a plus. We usually have anywhere between 7-13 guys running in SM. It's a hoot.

Decided to give autocrossing another try huh, I thought you hated it. lol I haven't seen you at any of the events this year, there's been quite a few. There's on this Sunday (17th) in Eastlake, and one next Sunday (24th) at Lordstown. Come out.

Unfortunately, I'm working every sunday this month (I rotate a Sunday-Thursday schedule every other month with another guy.) And I have a crack that's working its way across my windshield that I still have to get fixed...I'm pretty sure a cracked windshield is an automatic tech fail.
