    I finally busted my autocross cherry today. Drove a friend's Elise with A-Comps. They had a performance driving class on Saturday that I didn't attend because I was busy pulling shrubs from my girlfriend's house.

    Time to rebuild the T-bird's front calipers and autocross that sumbitch.

    Good job! Great pics. What size tires did you end up getting and they look like NEW hoosiers.
    I've been pricing stuff, and it turns out going to goodyear slicks will actually be cheaper than running hoosiers anymore, except for the having to buy another set of wheels though.

    I went to an event over at geauga lake at the old amusement park yesterday. They run an index class for all the classes with only one car in them and I ended up winning that class. I was 23 cp

    They are 275/40, and gently used. Toyo RA1's to kinda match the 888's I have up front

    Thought the tread grooves looked too close together for hoosiers, lol.

    Pretty chilly today, but I got a second shot at the same course from last time.
    With a 50.9 today, tires made all the difference. Even with temps in the 40's, I had more grip today than I have had available in a long time.
    1st in class today. Will post the rest when its available
