March 5th Autocross Pictures (~4 MB)

Finally, the first event of the season arrived. I know SteelRain and I have been longing for this day since the last event of the season.

My opinions on the event, the new tires, and my results are in this thread, but I've cross referenced both threads.
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...threadid=77228

We'll start off with the introduction, some of the cars, and then we'll move on to the action.

My girlfriend, Leah, and my best friend, Matt. They showed up at 10:00 am and stuck around all day through the first and second head before I finally ran at 3:30 pm in the third heat. Talk about loyalty...



From left to right -- Mike M (Qtrflash), Pat (pat247), and Mike B (SteelRain).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The cars:



Pat's SVT


Mike B's SVT



Mike M's SVT


My SVT


Hey look! I'm finally in the right class.


I thought with the lighting this turned out to be a cool shot.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The time and preparation. Ssh, not while I'm measuring.


Getting in the zone.


You can see the look of excitement on my co-driver's face after my pleasing run.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My girlfriend did an awesome job taking these action shots considering the lighting, her first time taking high speed action shots, and the fact that she didn't have a telephoto lens.


Pulling up to the line...


Supposedly the flag man's little brother "was going to get to an SVT Focus."


Ready? Go! Who says white men can't jump?




No, I ain't afraid of no cones...


...Cone busters!


Not really, this is actually the following shot. But it would've ruined the joke... the horrible, horrible joke. If you didn't notice, one cone is standing and in the previous picture, I hit the cone.




These are for Carrera26, so he can see I'm doing my best to save those tenths of seconds (cone still stands).


My friend coming along for another ride. That is his blue RX-8 in the background, and I'm trying to convince him to autocross with it. He's on Michelin Pilot Sports, though, and I couldn't blame him if he didn't want tear up his tires.





I could probably give you the whole course or a short video with all the pictures she took.

But I won't.


Suddenly, the VCD sent power to the rear wheels for an awesome drift around this bend. Well, I wish. That's no ABS, but fortunately, it was only brief.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Finished my last run and snagged my copy of the time slip.


A good, fun day indeed.

Pics look great Alex!

How was it driving on the MXs? Did you get any major rubbing?

And how did you end up finishing in class?

Here's Mike in action with his JRSC pushing him around the course.


I think someone wants an LSD!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------







Mike showing off his skills and putting down the fastest times in G Stock today by a large margin if I'm not mistaken (I think over 3+ seconds faster than the second place guy).



Bringing it home!

Sorry, there aren't as many pictures of everyone else. You'll have to hold my girlfriend accountable for that.

Cool.....good to see Mike get the "iZoom Focus plate" heh

Looks like his R comps helped quite a bit.

Your answer can be found here, friend.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...threadid=77228

Rubbing wasn't as bad as I originally thought. Unless you're doing something evasive on the street, you shouldn't have issues with the rubbing. I only had rubbing on the tightest corners (none in the slaloms surprisingly).

There were supposedly nine people in STS (at least on the sheet), which was a bunch from the last time in OKC. However, I was beaten by a Miata in STS, which was incorrectly placed -- should've been in STS2. I'll give him two events, then I'll say something. Nah, it was a novice on Yokohoma AVS 100s, and they were already putting down faster times .. for their first event I believe. I didn't even notice until I talked to the other STS competitor, Wynn (I think) in his Eclipse GTS. I asked why there weren't any other Miatas, and he told me it should be in STS2. Oh well...

I placed fourth, but I ran the second fastest time of the day in STS once we hit Pax classes.

I'm still waiting on some iZoom "sponsor" plates, so people can at least know where I got my graphics done. Maybe Sean's not proud of my graphics. I do get asked a lot as to who did them.

Hmm, maybe I should just spoil this for Mike. His fastest time was in the 44.xxxs, and my fastest time was in the 44.xxxs. My girlfriend said when Mike heard my time he said (paraphrasing), "I got to go this Evolution driving school. Alex is running times as fast as mine, and I've got more mods than he does." Sorry if I totally got the story messed up, Mike, but it made me laugh when I heard it. I know Mike's going to get a LOT faster on those R-comps once he gets accustomed to the new level of amazing grip.
