    Nice. it look like a decently open layout. Our course designs are more geared for smaller cars due to our lot size. Our New pavement is a whole lot bigger so next event and next years events we will see speeds of 60-70mph so us and the corvette guys can stretch our legs a bit.

    looks abit out of place. I mean F-bodies doing cone racing (Auto-x) seems abit like a fish out of water.

    But hey racing is fun no matter what kinda it is.

    I am impressed he didn't get the back end coming around on him.

    You would be surprised. There is one dude in our club that has a completely stock convertible z28 (its a 95) and without any mods but stickies he puts some great times, better than a lot of newer corvettes, and even better that one of the guys completely gutted dedicated CP firebird. In this type of competition a Good driver and tires rules the day. He is about 3 seconds faster than me but then again this is my first season and before that I had done 2 events so I have a ways to go.

    That has got to be the biggest understatement of the year. You shoud try it. You might get hooked. Check this one out , An acquaintance caught my car on video about a year ago and I didn't even know about it till just recently.

    That was me. The lot was nice and big, but it was very bumpy and a little too much gravel so traction was limited. Still fun though, and it feels a lot faster than that video looked. Anyway, my mods are:

    Engine / Performance:

    Lid
    MAF
    Ported throttle body
    TSP Under drive pulleys
    LS6 intake
    Thunder racing 224/224 .563/.563 114 LSA cam with dual springs
    LS6 ported oil pump
    LS2 timing chain
    Pacesetter long tubes
    Off road y-pipe
    Magnaflow cat-back
    3.73 gears
    Dyno tuned

    Handling:

    Hotchkis Strut tower brace
    Hotchkis Sub frame connectors
    Hotchkis Trailing arms
    G2 adjustable panhard rod
    BMR adjustable tunnel mounted torque arm
    BMR springs
    Bilstein HD shocks

    It dyno'd 377rwhp / 373rwtq
    Best 1/4 mile was a 12.44 @ 114mph with a 1.9 60ft on street tires

    For those that think F-body's don't belong on an Auto-X course, I had one of the best times that day, beating out S2000's, Miata's, WRX's, and EVO's. I've also been on the Gainesville raceway road course. I love drag racing, but sometimes I want to turn too.

    wbna0149, I used to be stationed at Spangdahlem. I was stupid and didn't bring my car with me, but have auto-X'd in that very spot in a friends Z28. You're car looks like it has a lot of handling mods, you are really ripping around those cones!

    quite a good driver.

    both runs look like it's quite open and the first one seems a bit dusty, though.

    Cool video --

    A. I am not that good of a driver with this car (yet)
    B. my back end gets loose in the smallest of turns if I burp the gas in a low gear. 1 or 2 usually

    Looks like alot of fun.

    Nice driving!

    It was very dusty, traction was limited for sure.
