Ran the Coors Field SCCA event today, with street tires (Dunlop SP Sport 5000's, 205/55/16's), 45 psi front tires, 32 psi rear tires, and otherwise completely stock, and I got second place in G-Stock (yeah, my car is STOCK!).

I was about 1 second behind a guy in a 1.8T Audi A4 quattro, with Kuhmo 225 R compound tires, and Koni sport struts.

And I have an automatic transmission! :D

Congratulate me folks!

Now when I get tires and struts you better watch out Mr. Audi! :curse:

:lol:

[Pictures and movies to follow in a few days.]

Thank you! Yes, I've heard the same thing about tires. Considering this was a lot of corners on the course, I think it would have made a big difference. Especially if I went up to 225's. :D

Yeah, whatever, then why were there all those other 5 speed RS's that were slower than me? :lol:

Wider, stickier tires would have made a bigger difference than the transmission, IMO. So there! :p

Well then I guess the real test will be how I do over the course of the season. I'll post as I go, because I will go to all events. The proof will be in the results, huh? :D
