It goes into DSP.  The local challenge is the president of my local club 
who runs his IT (improved touring SCCA) Ford Fiesta.  That is one mean 
little car, and he really knows how to drive.  I don't really intend to 
get many first places, but the car will be much faster, and as my driving 
continues to improve, who knows?

Oh, yea.  There is a guy who runs a DSP Rabbit Gti (84?).  It's not too 
bad, but he let me drive it at the last event, and I beat his times but 
about a tenth or so.  This was *the first* time I have ever driven *any* 
Rabbit, and the second time I had ever *seen* his.  I guess it's sorta 
impolite to beat the guy who lets you drive his car, but...

Please, no one mistake this for bragging!  There are plenty of people who 
could beat me in my car, with my car.  I have only been doing this since 
last year, and at age 22, I have plenty of time to get the much needed 
experience to be a very good driver someday.

Thanks for listening group,

Thanks for the good words, Glen,  :)
