    Wow, that is a nice project. Don't know how I missed that one. Your total investment is decent for what you have there. Does your buddy go with you often with his Elantra (477)?

    Its the same car. He runs the number 477 and i run 325(which is my usual number). We dual drove that day since his Miata was down. We just pasted the 477 on top of the Chump car number panel.

    Ah, the same car. Kevin, when I saw them I thought maybe it was a team effort. Thanks for the explanation.

    This past sunday's trackcross was a good day. One massive wreck put a damper on the whole event though and everyone backed off after that point. Course design definitely played a part in the wreck since the shutdown lane during the afternoon course was extremely tight. Wish they could have moved it back to allow a better braking zone. Guy in an RSX ended up backward into a concrete barrier and settled into part of a tire wall.

    I came 20/83 in the morning and 20/83 in the afternoon. Fastest FiST in the morning but afternoon course was beat by another Fiesta guy by almost a second. He was super fast.

    The new 215/45R16 Azenis 615K+ did amazing. They had a ton more grip and i wasnt beating the sidewalls up like the old Federals. Tire temps over the course of the day were also significantly less than the Federals.

    Some pictures and videos from the event. You will see the TINY shutdown area on the afternoon runs.

    How much are you spending on the new tires? I love how relatively cheap wear parts are on these cars.

    Trackcross went great. Summit Point, Jefferson Circuit. Placed 20/80 in the morning and 20/74 in the afternoon.
    One photo from the owner of Mach V Motorsports who sponsors the event.

    One huge highlight was getting to see a 1 of 209 produced S209 WRX STI. Mach V Motorsports brought it out for people to check out. It was interesting to see the differences between it and a regular STI.

    Video from this past weekend's trackcross. Jefferson Circuit is certainly a little faster than the usual Shenandoah technical portions. Speeds going into Turn 11 are nearly into triple digits before getting hard on the brakes and out into the finish line.
