Default Auto X Rocks! (now with pics!! (56k may cough a little))

I raced today Got 6 laps in that counted, 1:10.617, 1:08.424, 1:07.237, 1:06.351, 1:05.456, 1:05.347, And then promptly got my best time when it didn't count.. 1:04.889, 1:05.600, 1:05.333, 1:05.970, 1:06.547. On my last lap I was just seeing how far I could push the car, I spent more time with the tires screaming than not. But it was the most fun I've had in a while, and I didn't have to look over my shoulder for cops. I now am 100% sure I need a sway bar and some sticky tires, then working on something to get the car to quit pitching so hard... But mostly just get behind the wheel more, That got me faster and didn't cost near as much as any other mod.

Real thrill driving huh? I knew you would enjoy it
Sway bars and tires, combined with your driving time will shave a few seconds off I'm sure

Getting my Technical Inspection


Waiting in the staging lanes, this is where I figured out I have cooling issues


Coming down the back straight, I got to 65-70 top, the fastest ont the track was in the 75-80 range.


Turn 4, 180 Left, incoming at 40-45 out of a slolam


Turn 6, 90 left to the fininsh line


Off the start line


Turn 4, look how far the suspension compressed


Turn 4 from a different angle


Coming out of 6, the finish line is the tall cone on the edge of the pic
