yup, I'm the yellow guy :) although i haven't been to tsscc before. hehehe

thanks, I've used Nikon N90 for most of those pictures, but I'm trying to get the Nikon D100 soon. of course my car is beat up from almost every direction already so it will be hard to take any more pics of it.

why hello there phil. it's James Yom, red Prelude Type SH driver. I was gonna run with you guys in STS, but then I had a last minute change and am gonna run in STX and harass Suburus hahaha. With Danielle and Julianne designing the course, I am expecting a very challenging and very fast course! That's how those nationals drivers like it!

yeah, i was looking at milwaukee/wai results, and in one, i can't remember which, you were in sts. what did you do to your car? what did you change now to run stx?

i never seem to do as well on the longer "nationals" type courses, but should still be a good time.

I was co-driving Jason's car. I coned EVERY FREAKING RUN. Ya know the part that sucks? If you look at my time, had I not coned, I woulda WON STS. grrrrrrr. I mean I barely touched those cones too from what Jason was telling me. And then to top it off, I go on a fun run with Jason in the car, and on my first run I run FASTER than my fastest timed runs, PLUS its clean, PLUS I got a passenger in the car. UGh. Jason's car works pretty well, a lot better than my car.

As for the long courses, it's all about going balls out man :) hehehe.

MKR the nationals courses are about a minute long, but they frequently hit third gear at some points, so about 75 mph, so it's safe to say that these are longgggggg courses. Miller park isn't so much that it's long, but you do get to hit third sometimes. Now Rt. 66, that's long.... :)

suspension changes the primary reason?

no kidding. the chicago/tsscc co-event at rt. 66 was by far my worst event. pretty early in my autocrossing career, but still, my integra just didn't seem to have the torque when i needed it.

looks like it will take a while for me to adjust to those faster courses... well, hopefully by sometime next season I'll create some competition.

MKR, the Borowski sisters are gonna run street tire again next year, so if you run street tire next year, than I'm sure they'll do their best to give you some competition. hahaha

SISTERS?? HAHAHAHAHA.. now that's hillarious, I just might use that to break their concentration :) HAHAHA..
yeah, I've been talking to them, looks like street tire for them, and I think I'll stick with street tire as well, it's just more economical for now, unless I find a set of wheels in 'stock' size to put my kumhos on, then I just might do DS next season.

Interesting event, nice course, although it took a while to get used to it. Too bad that my last 3 runs were in freaking rain, hehe, so I only had 3 not-so-bad runs. I like the lot there, it's big and there is opportunity there to make some really nice courses, as long as there are no tiny carts going around for 3 minutes :)
