8:30am to
7am Sunday drive on I70 with no sleep
7:30am Sunday arrive in Washinton, Pa

9am put race tires on my race car that my friend jsut drove down

11am first Autocross run in one year

picture from that day.




This all the body roll the car has


ended up 1st in class and about 11th in Pax...not to shabby considering I havent raced in 12 months.

some other cool cars
7th fastest STI in the nation


This guy introduced me to this sport when i was 15 he nearly beat me in his 1000 dollar ebay car


Allways loved this car and color to bad he was 3 seconds slower than me :P


about the worst AX car you could have


very cool Lotus 7.....it was powered by a s2000 motor.



At the end of the Day I got my hand on this form of motorsports crack...a 125cc shift Kart..honda of course


video from my run in the kart


0-60 in 3 seconds 2 lateral g and a feeling that for me beats even skiing. I am going to by one of these mini F1 cars someday.

So you raced after 26.5 hours of mostly driving, and no sleep, and you won? There must have been some stiff competition.

Crap dude I've done that drive before...hard without some form of chemical help.

Shifter karts are a blast. I need to get one of those at some point. Drove one a couple times on a purpose built kart track, got hooked hard. Relatively cheap thrills, easy to transport as well.

Solo2 rules! 96CS.

what kind of engine do you have in your car? I assume it's not the original one, since it's SM and you were that high in pax. I've lusted after a super 7 since the first time I saw one, and have heard about people sticking s2000 motors in them. It sucks that he has to run in Amod though.

Between lack of time and increased entry fees I haven't autocrossed in a couple years. But, seeing pics like this makes me miss it.

Well I would agree with you but a 11th in PAX in very underprepared SM car is actually more impressive than the win.
