If some of you guys do go to Byron, I believe the club you want to be under to use that lane is The Chicago Garage.

Gosh I can't believe that was back in May. lol. I'm hoping for a quicker time this time because of the Forge DV (consistent boost), Autotech CB, and grippier tires (once warm).Edit: You had to post the video where I miss 3rd gear. I had that S/C M3 for the first 2 gears as well. lmao

Well what are you waiting for? LS1 stuff isn't too badly priced for the power you can get.

Yea, but I don't want to change my clutch just yet. 56K on stock one and I don't think it's doing too good....But I'm buying KW V3s soon and new wheels/tires, so no power mods lol.

Nice. What tires? My clutch ain't doing well and I'm almost at 36k. But it only slips in upper gears in the cold. Started last winter with about 23k on it. Only in Stg 2. We'll see how it holds up on Sunday.

The only option is RT615 now. Kumho XS is available too in same size but I don't see it listed at Tirerack and elsewhere. The size is 275/40R17. Modified by r0nd3L at 9:36 PM 10/30/2008

Greg, since you've run this before... how bumpy is the course? Will my aluminum oil pan be bouncing off the ground?

John,There is only a bump in one part of the course but it's right after a left hand turn so it's not like you'll be getting air Also, it depends if they will use same configuration Don't worry there wur people running slammed EVO's and STI's w/out problems. You should come out and spank them fools since your in 1st in your class and 5th overall in their points!

Yeah, I'd love to RallyX if it wasn't cancelled, but not with a lowered car that happens to be my only car. Haha, "can you warranty this please?"

Well all I know is last year I went to a parking lot that had snow on it still, but it was a couple days ago. It had frozen over the previous tracks and what not. I got in there and got out pretty quickly because the ride was so harsh and I didn't feel like breaking anything. I can imagine something similar with this though it is fresh. But it's still a risk.
