Talking Autocross with the ES (pictures)

Guam Road Racers Association had an autocross run yesterday, July 11, 2004. We are working towards being an SCCA region. We had a turnout of about 27 cars, I was in the middle of the pack again, placing 15th place. Not bad I guess... It was fun with the wet track, I was sliding everywhere with my stock wheels, lots of understeer but fun nonetheless. Here are a few pics:

I have a 96 with 92-94 headlights and foglights.

I swapped out the square ones for the yellow ones...

apparently who ever was driving the WRX and M3 needs a lesson or two....how the hell can you not win in cars like that? Was the prelude all done up or what?? Looks like it would have been a good time, I'm jealous!!

You need at least a rear whiteline sway to cure that gnarly pitch and roll.

Dude, that's sweet.

Equally sweet is that the M3s got beat by an Echo. Just for that, those guys should be peed on by everyone who placed above them, then have their cars burned and the insurance payment to be distributed among those who placed above them.

haha, the Prelude has won every event we've had so far... His car has a fully setup Tein suspension... Progress sway bars, I dunno what else... but to top it off, he's an AWESOME DRIVER.

why did you go with the stock wheels? My 18s make my car handle a lot better......or maybe its just new tires, but I thought it was a combination of that and wider, larger wheels. Just curious because last auto-x you used your 18s.
