Just a quick vid of my four runs this Saturday at Hershey Park, PA. Again, the video makes it look like you're going a lot slower while real life makes it seem like you're flying. Definitely a nice course and
It's a Night and Day Difference from the SLOPPY Sportlines/Blues to the balanced Megan Coilovers.

nice. i still wish i had the coupe. that thing was a beast at auto-x. with the right tires bigger cams for top end and more practice i think that car would have made those crxs hurt.

Yea man... I just can't wait for the next one now (July 16-17). With the coils and my tires FINALLY put on correctly, this thing was so consistent. and NO oversteer like it had with the sportlines, just a bit of understeer, but that's to be expected.

It was Super Awesome.

Wow that was a really fast course. Not very technical at all. I love the 1 hand driving! BTW whos white 1gn coupe?

The white 1gn on the left of the pits is Mark's, he's "Mark" on the neon boards and basically runs the autocrosses at Hershey. And yea, course was very simple this time. Wasn't until I watched the videos that I noticed the 1-handing, I think it's because I was more relaxed this time around.

Yea, there were turns I know I could have done faster, but some other turns that I would have understeered into cones if I had hit it harder, so I'm happy with it. My last run is always my best because that's the one I just say fuck it and run balls to the wall on (the way I should be on every run). I'll be at the 'not-afraid-to-break-shit-just-run-all-out-and-abuse-the-car' mindset soon. Especially now that I know the car is much more responsive with the new setup.


Why don't you build a coupe then Ryan, instead of a 2gn? You see a lot more little go-kart 1gns at the autox. Only 2gn's are SRT's.

Mind if I bum your thread?

Sunday was a much much better course (according to those who ran both days) I had a good time but was a little slow I couldnt get heat in the brakes or tires until my last run not to mention a little tired (all nighter+autox next morning is always a bad idea)

Sure man, you're more than welcome to do anything in my AutoX threads. It seems like it would have been faster with the slaloms first and the S-Curves later in the track, as it was Sunday I believe.

Got some KONI Contingency decals there? I would like to get Hawk, Kumho, and Tire Rack Contingency's, well basically the whole national pro solo route, but I'm sure I'd need R-comps first to be competitive in SM. ... or even back in ST for that matter.

Those Koni decals are about 25 years old they came with my Monza and just so happen to be correct for a Shelby slalom serries GLHS so I kept them. Infact one blew away Sudnay thankfully I have extras.

Oh and yes the car still wears Illuminas :lol:
