Actually at the last Philly event people did. Several people kept coming up to me "Are you the guy on Page 14?" or "Were you just in GRM?" :)

Also heard people in the paddock asking other people if that was the car in GRM. Alan Pozner was also on the same page at the bottom. Yellow ITR and we're both from the same region :)

that is an awesome accomplishment.

That is the number one magazine most read by roadracers and autocrossers. People must be coming up to you saying: "Hey, I saw your car is GRM!"

That must feel really cool!

congratulations, and drive safe,

aj =)

i picked up a copy of GRM over the weekend and saw that picture and thought it looked familiar. sure enough, it is the same as your sig pic.

that's really cool. one question, if you are sponsored by konig wheels, why do you have koesi wheels mounted on your car?

cheers,
phil

Cause I made a deal with Konig to run their wheels on the street and at shows. They knew their wheels would be too heavy to autocross. But my sponsorship fell through since the guy who was sponsoring me through Konig left the company.

what about the new helium or greenlight? would you use those for auto-x? i am new to the sport and wonder how much difference wheels make? i have a set of 14" alloys (previous owner had them on the car, not extremely light) that i am considering putting falken azeins on. or i could go with one of the new konig (or a rota) 15" wheel that is under 13 lbs with 15" falkens. i realize at my skill level it won't make much difference, but if i'm only doing 8 or so events a year, the tires should last a while. if i am going to end up wishing i had purchased 15s a year from now, i don't want to waste the money on 14s now.

what do you recommend? would the bigger sidewall of the 14" azeins and added weight of that wheel going make much of a difference before i would wear them out?

thanks,
phil
