    This is not good. You could drive a cart under that wheel. The line I am taking sure does not help. Your wheel appears to have left the tarmac slightly, but not nearly as bad as mine.

    Well, if it's any consolation, I have yet to see a WRX that doesn't lift during hard cornering. It's common, and I doubt it's the end of the world. That kid Justin, who got an '06 OBP WRX and took it to Nationals this year, was lifting like a mofo a couple events ago. He was still really silly fast.

    Bill, I still don't have the vids in the public folder. Did something go wrong?

    Hi guys,

    Jehan thanks for letting me ride a few times, I really enjoyed the event and now must go on the prowl for a miata if the insurance company works with me

    I saw a few wrx's run on the 2nd heat when I was waiting to ride, and I dont remember any of them lifting the rear wheel that high. Is it possible to change your line Bill and turn that into a sweeping corner before the finish so you arent throwing the weight of the car into the turn as badly? I know that finish was a little PITA-ish but that might help a tad.

    It was nice meeting Bill and wrx wagone (sorry bad with names) I really wanted to stay for atleast the 3rd heat so I could ride with Bill and a few others, but the GF was having none of it. She was a good sport about it but she just got to cold/bored to hang in for the finish. Who knows Bill if I was riding shotgun maybe the extra weight would keep that side down


    Hopefully by spring I'll have a car that I can dedicate time to and race in. Thanks to Jehan and everyone else there.
