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.
