Might take the camber limited GTI, had some weird things going on at the FIRM on the Acura yesterday that I need to figure out what the deal is, along with waiting for the arrival of some parts.

Gene, you'll see me driving more frustrated and sloppier with my VW :rolling:

Here's the course map. Short one this time so that we can get lots of runs without worrying about multiple cars on course and also have plenty of grid space.

When you already have a very respectable clean run, you gotta Yolo on the last one.

heh, there is also the private message function too. But I've looked into the 034 ones before and asked them if they work, but it seems like there isn't enough demand for mk6s, I guess there is slight differences between the top strut mount. Ground Control makes camber plates that apparently work and aren't using a spherical bearing up top. It has crossed my mind many times. Along with doing what Bill did with his sportwagen by retrofitting audi TT parts. Now that the 2nd gen Audi TT is older, the conversion is far more appealing vs when I checked back in 2012.

But I am lazy modding this GTI and I'll probably just put 45 to 50 psi in the rear tires for this event :rolling:

If I remember correctly then pink cones = automatic DNF if you hit them. I think there will be many DNFs this event. RIP Pink cones.

"girls", dating yourself big fellow. Not PC especially on the tarmac, believe it will be "women" in the driver seats. and then the cones are HOT PINK.

Geez, now I have people nitpicking colors. We have some red cones. Those cones are intended to be red. The shades of green and orange that I use for cones aren't correct either. It's a freakin' MAP.

255's on a GTi is like putting arm floats on a duck. If it corners like a duck and honks like a duck. DOH.
