    Ryuku Car Club Association HPDE, July 4

    So I took the GC8 up to Nago Circuit(a giant slab of asphalt for rent) and ran a High Performance Driving Event(HPDE) with the crew and had a blast! As soon as the rest of the knuckle heads post their pics on our JP forum I'll load the rest. Dodging cones is mega fun, I'd recommend it to anyone.

    After watching the lotus, I am thoroughly unimpressed. I've seen it run twice and both times it got smoked pretty badly. Driver error maybe?

    Yep, it is mostly driver skill, not so much the car.

    Looks like autox with color coded cones.

    Hah hah, pretty much except for the color code part. We just load the scooter up with cones and set up a course and call it good.

    I imagine those 240s didn't do too poorly... Well balanced and quick with an SR...

    Autox would be easier with more than just orange cones on the course.

    The S13 actually finished dead last. The fastest car out there....was a full bodied 4 door Toyota Cresta on stock suspension, stock everything but tires. The owner is hands down the best driver I've ever seen behind the wheel of a car, I don't think he's lost one of these yet. I was in the middle of the field with my WRX. I was particularly proud of edging out that red STi though, he's running full suspension, GBD 6 speed, brembo's, 20g, etc. Now I'm on the hunt for some coil overs so I can fix that ganstar lean my car has.
