    Going to my first Auto Cross on Sunday

    I might go just to watch, but I might run the BD. I'll see if I can get some pics. They have a first time class so all of my mods will not put me into a class running against crazy cars.

    We'll see maybe I'll run it

    Nothing with going and watching the event if its your 1st time. It'll give you a heads up of what's going on, so next time if you do happen to participate..you know whats up.

    If you go there and plan on not racing, bring a helmet and try to get some rides, it will give you a feel for spotting cones and driving the course. Most people are happy to take passengers, as long as they are not going for some record time.

    OK i didn't do as bad as I thought and it was fun as hell

    I kept up with a Legacy that had a WRX swap with stock suspension. I guess my suspension can keep up with his power ^_^

    Here is the link for the pics that the Autocross photographer took

    My pics I will be uploading soon to my photobucket

    My favorite pic was DSC_2896_DxO2.jpg
    I wonder why
