That's an awfully straight course...

Just the parts that Freddie shot. There was a huge righthand sweeping loop at the far end that was out of range for Freddie to shoot. Other than that, it was basically two slaloms. Fun!

I got 9th in PAX and 1st in STS!

Sure, rub it in... I got 81st in PAX! I'll blame it on my tires, and having too much fun sliding the rear end to care about going fast
Thanks again for letting me ride with you, it was nice to see what my car could be like if set up and/or driven properly. Your were even faster after it started raining than I was when it was dry!

I was going to ask you, I know you have Konis, but what kind of springs do you have?
Did you find that coolant leak yet? I just read something about gasket on the thermostat housing being a common problem.

Nick,

I have Steeda springs. That's also where I got the Konis matched to them. They are a fairly soft rate fro AutoX, but great on the street. If I did it all over again, I would probably go with H&R Coilovers: F: 370~460 lb/in R: 260 lb/in


Rates:
Steeda Springs:
F: 136~160 lb/in
R: 190~280 lb/in

Thanks for the kind words.

The coolant stopped leaking. I think it was just coming out the overflow from being sloshed around on the course. I am going to investigate that gasket, now that you mention it, just in case. Thanks!
