These are thumbs, by the way, click on them to see them full size

Just one of the cooler photos from a local event.



Me at the event. That black Protege wagon back there is what I was co-driving while my RX-8 was in the shop. VERY quick car, turboed and with full suspension. We got in to the top 3 raw times that day, only beaten by a Nationals driver in a prepared S2000 and a formula car.



My car, doing it's thing...

Not sponsored, I just like to make my car look fancy for auto-x events since it's pretty basic as a daily driver. In those 2007 auto-x pictures, 2 of those magnets (RS Racing and SPS)I was required to run because those pictures were taken at a Divisional Event.

As for auto-x in the rain, it's the same as in the dry, but the car reaches the limit much quicker. If you've ever wanted to know what your car would handle like at the absolute limit at about 100mph, just drvie it at an auto-x in the rain. Same sensation, it all just happens at a much slower speed.

These are from when my car was almost stock and only had 3500 miles on it. I was still kinda new to stick shift.

Thanks, Klondike. Yeah Rieger bumper is nice but i has some drawbacks. It doesn't attach well in the sides and there's a little gap (it is designed for european focus). Also, it sits quite low. I'm planning to buy coilovers some day and I'm not sure if I will be able to drive thru speed bumps without tearing it off. But overall I still like it
