My 1st taste of autocross.

I did the autocross event at the autocross event at the Blacktop Nationals on 8/27/11.
Sorry, I could only upload to Facebook. My 'net connection crashes trying to upload to Youtube or Photobucket.

I just did two runs. First run. 33.??. Not bad at all since I was a second faster than a WRX, an Evo 8, & others. You can hear in the video, though, that a (newer) Accord beat me by a second. Had understeer & staying in 2nd just proves that it's too high (I bogged at least once).

‎2nd run: 33.45. Best times while we were there were 27.xx & 28.xx by a couple of experienced C5 Vettes. After the vettes, a Scion Xb with unknown mods, if any, ran a 29.xx. Driver mod, FTW.

Used NOS during the event. This is how it works, right?
