    The last event there it was super windy (they double stacked the cones), but closer to 30 degrees.

    8? I should have gone.

    Yea i think Jr was saying it wasnt quite as windy as the last one. Yea i was pumped about the 8 runs and my heat was really smooth, not much time between runs. JRs heat wasnt as smooth, i rode with him and we got reruns on something like 3 of the first 5 runs haha.

    Yeah exactly Scott did VERY well for his first time out.

    Scott - You should definitely consider doing the Novice School in April.

    Yeah, I bought those the night before. I'm not thrilled on the white, but the price was right.

    15lb. Enkei wheels with 235/40/17 Falken 615's with 4/32. The tread wear is perfect. All for $900.

    I was just looking at your times on the results page. Steve?? How did I come up with Scott?? I guess I'm just retarded.

    Here are the links. Results PAX

    Your result was quite good compared to the others in STU.

    Cool, I was looking at the results page but missed the pax. I have been looking for tires all day, i cant wait for the march autox but dont want to run my stocks again. Looking at them again today they got pretty chewed up on the outside edge especially the passenger side haha. I was hoping maybe to find a cheap set re070s an sti guy was gettting rid of.

    I'm not sure about that myself. I wouldn't pay any more than $500 for a set of STi take off tires.

    If you're interested, I know a guy that runs a wholesale tires place in Haverford. Bill and I got our Falken 615 for $115 a piece. That is quite good for those tires.

    I cant decide what I want to do yet, I dont think i want to buy a dedicated set of autox wheels/tires because im not sure how many i will make it out to this year(hopefully as many as possible). I was leaning more towards something that I can run as summer tire and autocross on occasionally.
