Autox'd my 5KCSTQ
My alma mater (GMI) had an autox today, so I took my RX7 and set
fastest time of the day (pretty easy, really, theres not much
competition) at 53.38seconds. So I had enough and went home to help my
wife with housework, yard work, etc. Well, she wasn't home (prolly gone
shopping with her mom) so I decided to take the Quattro back to the autox
before they shut down.
I took two runs, the second turning a 58.26! I thought that was
pretty good. I beat a number of cars that should have been faster
(including a couple o' Mufftangs) The biggy was the brakes - those
crossdrilled rotors allowed me to go deeper into the turns than in my
RX7! I also was more careful to keep the boost up on the second run.
I don't think that the car would be competitive in GS (I think
that's its class) but with a little extra boost, it is alot of fun.
