New rear tires.. I didn't feel as much rotation but I'm still slow. 43/69raw
Unrelated: AC recharged. It's awesome. 104 here today.

overcast in the morning = low surface temps
45.040 - then i aired out rear helpers and tires -2psi of what i usually run
no cone penalties
first event on new street tires in the rear (summer 200 tread-wear range compared to balding all seasons in the 500 range)
I still consider myself a novice but i'm starting to get a better feel for how to better manage acceleration and braking to setup suspension for cornering.

last sunday.. rear end was trying to beat me through every corner even aired down totally blew my confidence in the slalom.. i was very slow.
i'm getting new softer street tires for the rear before the next event.

43rd out of 88 starts
here is just my fastest lap you can see me shake my head exiting the corner just before the second slalom..
that was me getting to far in it and loosing traction twisting just enough to loose a half second to that stupid ass versa

only mod since my last post was HID lighting.
event 1 complete.
why i should have done better:
(that dude was directly in my line of sight walking towards me when i exited the slalom) i know excuses excuses
me proving to myself that had i not been distracted by 'that guy' i would have finished in 2nd behind a gutted race prepped civic with sticky tires on all 4 corners. instead of 3rd behind a street modified rsx-r

i felt the need to finish out the season in novice even though mistakenly re-indexing myself in smf for the last two events would have been enough to put me in 3rd. (which is what happened i asked them to fix it)
end of the season then:
event 9 i got 4th/9 for novice... 46/79 event pax. For the super awesome enduro i landed in 3rd out of 6 for novice(pax), for the event (best lap) 5th in novice which i guess means i'm consistent... for the year/season 5th out of 16. i can be happy with that. sticks with the motto never win never loose.
mods for next season i want to put a switch to disable my ABS; and if i can get away with it some discs for the rear with some tunable valving.

i got new street tires a week or so ago because:
(This is what happens when your toe isn't 0deg and you have camber and you enjoy sliding arse at auto-x)
Also installed a bezel I've had in my garage for some time and a digital boost gauge.
and i got an alignment
auto x last weekend... first event in a couple few months didn't do very well

CF on Black is nice...
It's like a surprise when you look close instead of a WOW look at me difference from the rest.
Headlights are the best for an alternative to stock as well.
