The second autocross of the year was about a week ago and I was excited to test out the new front suspension upgrades. The car performed flawlessly. The front end handled the rough terrain of our autocross venue awesomely. There is one area of the venue that we call the “go cart” that is particularly rough. If this section is included in the course I have typically struggled. With the new shock setup the car was smooth and predictable. Even on 2 year old slicks that are getting very near the end of their life I was able to win my class end up with the 4th fastest time of the day. I'm pretty happy with that result. Here are a few pictures from the event.
