Andy and I entered the monthly gulf coast scca solo event this weekend. It was lots of fun! I got to see andy do some sweet drifts and manage to not hit any cones! I think I did pretty well for my first time out... I found out my tires really suck. Overall I placed 11th out of 29 drivers. In my class of STS I placed 2nd out of 2. I was .2 slower than 1st place.

hey now...some other member was there too. overall we did pretty damn good for all our people bebing first time auto x. i also placed 2nd in my group out of 3. andy will claim a 41.6 time but i guess it wasnt official so he is back to 46.2 i also ranked 14th in the pax times. but ryan didnt want to post those. i also will post pics if my bro emails them too me. it was tons of fun sliding tires in the alltrac. i had mad understeer and got it up on 3 wheels once. i gave it all it had a couple times, it even chirped the tires in the 1st to 2nd shift once. i have stock suspension so the body roll was bad but since this was a low speed course (45 max) the brakes did very well. i couldnt get the 2nd to 1st shift down though so that hurt me on the hard corners.
