No, it's an autocross. They frown on drifting in these events.

The application was due on the 25th, so if you haven't sent it in already, you're screwed. I won't be there though because in all of my infinite wisdom, I forgot to put a complete address on the envelope so it got sent back to me.

I'm glad to see that it has returned though.

Yeah (I got mine in the mail also),

Isn't it on the 15th of May. My mom sent me the flyer to sign up, but obviously I wasn't able to get it done because I got the paper work a week after the due date. Plus I just found out a couple of days ago when I'll be on leave.

P.S. I'm going to be home between the 10th through the 24th in May...so you guy will probably see me there with some of my buddies hanging out you know.

They had cancelled it originally, but the lot where the autocross is held is still there so they brought it back. The organizers thought that the new parking structure was being built over the spot where the course is placed.

I've seen you on Supraforums. Are you some sort of ricer or something? How the hell does your blow of valve break? Turbo car can't build boost? Are you on stock twins or single? If you're on the twins then you don't know wtf you're talking about. On the Fremont meet thread you said your bov broke and you lost back pressure? Haha you're funny.

not very smart are you ? bov's can leak because theres a flaw in the design, too much boost, or the spring inside the valve needs to be tigtened up to provide more seating pressure.

if the blow off valve is leaking/open how do you supposed you build boost when its all leaking out of the valve?


and yes at the time he had a turbo civic. now he has an NA supra. :guitar:

It was fun. I was pretty disappointed in myself, however. I saw AC (StreetGuy) there but no other SRO people. Ryan, your brother did pretty good; he has a teal 510, right? If I can figure out how to upload video, I'll post a couple different runs.

Yeah,

It was cool to see pkrSE-R there & rollin10s. I won't even bother mentioning my time, but I didn't hit any cones though or spunned out. Which to me wasn't too bad of a run since I haven't driven for a very long time you know.

P.S. Three months of not driving at all & I still got a better time then my father. Even though I only beat him by five seconds, but he then again he did hit five cones though & stalled once (in an automatic...idle was too low when he had braked really car). Regardless, everybody was being safe & having a good time.
