I think I am improving on hitting my apexes.....




Autocross this past Sunday. It decided to rain 5 MINUTES before the first car hits the course in the first heat. My first 6 runs were in the rain with the last 2 on a wet course that was slowly drying up.

Of course it was completely dry during the second heat. With other STS cars in the second heat, I don't think I placed very well but it was my first time to run in the rain and it was a BLAST! The Kumho MXs were a LOT better in the rain than I thought they would be. I had complete control of Sonic the entire time and it never felt like the rain was affecting the natural handling characteristics of the car.

A big [thumb] to the Kumho MXs in the rain, and a fun day at the auto-x.

Looks like too much fun.

I hope it'll rain here sometime again here during an autocross.

Are your fogs hooked up, or do they just glow brighter when the blinker is on?
Since I went back to my stock lights, I hooked my fogs back up as my parking/turn signals. In those photos the parking lights are on and they do flash brighter when I have the turn signals on.
