Don't know if that Supercharger will help or not with you going around the corners or not. It didn't seem to help Brian out too much. Him and Josh were around the same times. But then again, it's all in the experience of the driver

oh trust me it helps, I just had a little too much roll in the suspension, plus I was understeering like a beyotch. You could see in Josh's pics his car was more stiff through the turns, where mine was tucking the whole tire up into the wells. That means alot especially when going around tight corners. I had the power and was putting it down in the straights and the slolom, but I was scrubbing major time coming out of the Chicago box and the hairpin right before the finish line. I'm in the process of redoing the suspension right now.

I rolled both fenders and quarterpanels from that event. The inner lip on them is completely flush with the inside of the panel Sportlines are NOT good for autocrossing

Man, I need to make it up and run with you guys sometime. Maybe the one in October, since I'm going to be crazy busy all of September. Looks like a good time.
