i'd like to give auto-x a try. i looked at the cincy scca website for dates and info about their events. the loast event this summer is oct 21 (sunday) at riverdowns on kellogg ave. i've never been before and wanted to see if anyone wanted to go race with me. here's their website Welcome to The Cincinnati SCCA check it out for info if u need it. like i said i've never done it before and i'm gonna figure it out as i go while i'm there. let me know and we can meet up and go down together.

I totally want to autocross, but not until after I get my LSD installed. So it's not happening this season!

Dude, I'd be there if it weren't an already booked weekend. I'd encourage you to go, even if you don't run, just to watch. I had a BLAST when I ran at CougarFest 2004.

y not make a couple runs w/out the LSD as a baseline? then u'll be able to quantify an improvement by installing the LSD. plus u can come hang out w/ ur favorite cincy people.

Thanks! If all goes according to plan, I'll have my beater fixed next month, so I can work on teh MTX-75 at my leisure all winter, and have it ready when the snow breaks.

I'm going to get a Torsen, as I've heard they have better torque-biasing than the Quaife - and they are hella cheaper :rofl:

Already have a Fidanza sitting in my kitchen, so I just need to get a clutch...

SOON, my friends, soon...

If my car is fixed I want to run it. If not then I'll just hand out.

Ohhhh, I remember the days of car parts everywhere! :rofl::rofl: Pretty soon, you start mistaking certain tools and parts as furniture or plates you can eat off of! :rofl:

well w/ the bat suspension kit, i think u'd do pretty well. now that i got springs and struts, i think it'd b a close race between u and me. now if rodney runs, it's just not fair w/ his 3L and the gc/konis he's got.

I'm not running the bat kit anymore I have Bilstein up front, Bat in the back and B&G all around~all i can say is it handles like a maniac :) but without my engine running right, i dont think i want to try

Oh and I'd want his Koni's but not his GC, IIRC GC arent the greatest~

I would seriously consider if someone has a helmet I can use. I don't fell like drop money on the gas, event fee, broken parts, and then a helmet on top of that.
