last weekend was the 3rd autocross of this fall semester here in Texas A&M (www.tamscc.org)
the course was 1.2 miles long. high-speed autocross..
i was able to run up to like the 3rd gear thanks to my 4.368 diff.
at first, i was not that motivated to chase for the podium in my class...
but it turned out i finished 2nd

1 SSM 15 Jordon Chevrolet Corvette 87.294
2 SSM 77 Yuda 240 90.865 <--- yay!
3 SSM 28 Gary Camaro 90.937
4 SSM 86 Keith 240 91.219
5 SSM 5 Richard 2000 Chevrolet Corvette 91.973
6 SSM 177 Vince 1991 Nissan 240SX 93.26
7 SSM 24 David 1991 Toyota Supra 93.27
8 SSM 31 Derrick Caballero 93.466
9 SSM 4 James Caballero 93.979
10 SSM 32 Russell T-Bird SC 94.858
11 SSM 231 Ryan 94.9
12 SSM 67 Jeff Camaro 94.963
13 SSM 91 Jake 300ZX 98.619
14 SSM 300 John 1997 Ford F150 99.396
15 SSM 63 99.897
16 SSM 320 Thomas 1997 Ford F150 102.57
17 SSM 79 Kelly Camaro 103.461

i managed to beat 240keyy and his 14psi SR with my 132rwhp stock KA ;p
i was suprised that i did pretty good thanks to my co-driver, vince. he gave me some awesome driving tips/techniques/tricks.
but if i were given one more run, i should be able to break into the high 80s because i know that i still made some small mistakes on my 90.xxx sec run..

all in all.. it was fun... and the most important thing that i learned is that i still need to improve my driving skills
oh well

heres me (driving) and my co-driver (passenger) who taught me a lot this weekend

SSM = novice non-stock Street Mod??

Nice work! Just 1 more person to beat! Thought Corvettes were SM2 though.

well SSM is kinda of like a class our club made
its super street modified
any mods but no R compound tires allowed...
so basically its a free for all class with street tires
