I'll be there in my S on R comps. Kristen may "participate" in her Elantra too.

so today I put the R comps on and had a go. 6 runs. first 2 OC ,2 with 1 cones and 2 good, consistent runs. i thought i would be having issues with power, and cornering... but nope. the problem i had was getting this fat bitch to stop! ABS kept on kicking in. pulled the 30a under the hood and it still worked. by the end of the day i only had ABS kicking in at the jacknife. due to the mirage i became a late braker at the track, in the S this only hurts me so much! having to brake and slow in a straight line for corner entry instead of rotating the car with the brakes like i am used to. it will take some time to get used to, i guess.


i ran FSP today. beat by an escort zx2 and an old golf, but beat a saturn sc2. i'll have action photos up later smile.gif












anyways, i think with a few more events i could be taking home 1st place in the car. it has potential, i just have to alter me to compensate. sucks after doing the same thing consistently, successfully, for so many years. also i couldn't run the weapon R TC and my plx wifi at the same off the OBD Y cable. i don't think the plx was getting enough juice. it would work fine on its own though. i'll be hardwiring in the throttle controller for the next even at MOHEGAN SUN casino! smile.gif
