Autox (not a baited hook)

My best actual running time was 48.946. But because I run in the Street Tire
class, which any car can run in, a handicapping index called a PAX is
applied. The PAX is based on the SCCA classing handicaping. The link for
these values is at: So
within the Street Tire class I end up with the time of 38.423. At least for
the WWSCC, this is the only class I even remotely have a chance in. I wound
up being 13th out of 20 within the class, even though for time overall I was
a lowly 158th out of 171! On the other hand, when I have run at SCCA events,
I do compete in GS, instead of Street Tire, because there are typically only
1 or 2 other entrants, thus improving my chances a bit. Derek, you ended up
with a much better time than me, a full 2 seconds faster! What other mods do
you have besides the Euro-lights? Next time we should get together, and
compare driving notes. I am really curious how other 200s handle
autocrossing. For those in the Seatle area, here is a link for upcoming
autocross events: It would be fun to have
a few 200s out there. I am planning going to the Bremerton event on the 23rd
and the WWSCC event on the 30. That is of course as long as baby #2, which
is due in 3 weeks doesn't decide to come early.

On a slightly different subject... why I love my '91 200 Avant... what other
car can I make a late night run to Home Depot in, to pick up 4 2"x10"x10'
pieces of lumber, not have to remove the car seat or stroller, and still
pull 1.8 bar on the freeway on ramp on the way home? Simply irreplacable.
