    Schubitzky, Syracuse was great, I think they said 8,100 cars on Friday, was a record.

    Lots of cars for the autocross, but they run from 9am till 6pm, 1/2 hour lunch break. Fri/sat/sunday.

    Not a crazy course, took the speed out of it this year, but good.

    Other 2nd gen too!!! Fun as hell.

    Hope to see you there next year.

    PS: Techs dont give you a hard time with tire ratings, I use 200, one 2nd genner had Toyo R888 100!!

    Thanks for all the compliments on the car. I love the way it drives and responds to changes.

    Yes, the photographer is really good. He makes the car look so much better than it does in person. It's a good 50 footer for sure. I would've submitted an action shot like these for the calendar but I thought the submitter had to be the photographer, so I submitted a still shot of the car that I took.

    G72Zed, how do they run the autocross? I understand you have to be registered for the show, but do you sign up once you're there or is there a pre-registration to run? How many runs do you get on each day? Is there any kind of classing?

    As far as my tires, I'm looking to go softer to the 200TW so I'm at the limit for CAM rules next year. I currently run 360TW BFGs. I think I'm going to try the Bridgestone RE71s.

    I pre register, 50$ or so for 3 day pass, allows the car and 2 people.

    No charge for Autocross, sign up and run as much as you like.

    They take the "Top Ten" quickest cars for the Sunday afternoon shootout.

    I made it in spot #7 this year..., but "Orange Rush" broke so got lucky, then got beat in first round, had a blast.

    There's not going to be an auto-x at Syracuse next year, they lost their sponsor for it.

    I heard it from Bill Howell of ASCP the company that runs the auto-x for the Syracuse Nats.
