My First AutoX of the Year, and Whip a 99 Mustang Cobra

This past month it was my first time in the category of SM, and one of my opponent was a Mustang 99 Cobra, he has race tires, i have normal street tires, and i wasn't even pushing the car, since if i step on the gas and let it go to quick i will stall the car, so i basically was cruising the track. so can't wait to fix the stalling, and next race will be next weekend. It so awesome to have turbo...

Thanks, Tom

Turbo-ZX3

Whippin' a '99 is fun, but putting three seconds on a Terminator is even more enjoyable... lolol.

Just remember what it could do to you on a straight.....

even on strait i think i could take him...

about the koni's , haven't had an experience with them,, but everybody saids that the shocks to get.. vs.. the agx by KYB.. one thing i don't like about the KYB is that the rear shock adjust from the outside. so anyone could mess with my adjustments
