I asked about the JCW kit here in OK and was told it was not allowed in stock.

Looks like the JCW Mini will be in BStock!! ouch! Most of the moves in the magazine are wrong. Here is a link to the corrections:
http://www.scca.org/garage/forum/for...?TID=2547&PN=1
05 Mini S with LSD is still in GStock. Only seen one this season and he took 8th of 75 cars in raw time, 1st in PAX. His MCS is Maxed for GS but I think that was mostly driver, Brock is an awsome driver.

Either way its all good...not to concerned with winning, just having fun and throwing my car around & putting these new Avon m550's to the test.
How did you do out there? How did the Avon's work out? Having fun is step 1. Step 2 is to remember step 1.

^^ well first run, I went into the infamous "cone zone"...came outta the first major turn and blanked out...lost the course. lol. I drove off feeling like a total arse. The following three, I did much better...started getting a good feel for the course and found the line.

The Avons are quite nice...I highly recommend them for street use, much better than the conti's IMO. I was up against people with some super sticky rubbers and beefy suspensions, so in comparison to that...well, there is no comparison. I actually rode in an SI with one of the national competitors and they were running some falken racing tires....night and day I tell you.

As mentioned above, I was out to learn and have a good time...Mission Accomplished. The people there were very helpful. I learned a great deal on my first day and had a blast throwing my car around. I am already anxiously awaiting my next day out there....hooked as anticipated.

Edit: Was that Scott that you rode with in the SI?

I like your homemade graphics. What'd you do to make them?

Thanks, I was quite happy with how they turned out too. :)

I typed them out in Adobe Illustrator, scaled them to size and printed them out. After that I cut them out, leaving a little white space around the edges, and taped them to a sheet of magnetic material using clear packing tape. I then cut them out with scissors and painted them with some metalic silver spray paint.

I need to go back and redo mine. They came out all right, but they just weren't up to my expectations.
