Most people report around 50-60, some a little higher. I'm getting around 55 on my first tank so far.

well, you sounded on the fence. If I knew for sure my 17s would fit up front on your car, I'd bring them next weekend and we'd run in SSP and then get you addicted to Hoosiers.



Nice bike BTW.

One of our local autocrossers just moved in SS now with his new toy...a 2004 Porsche 911 GT3... talk about wow...

It's up to you. Is Matt going to run too?

I'll run whatever you want. Proper co-driver etiquite dictates that I cover your entry fee.

What time does registration open? I Kim's coming too so we'll need to get things moving early.

I'll bring my gopro as well, and we can put it somewhere esle and have 2 angles to check out.
