    MM suspension FTW buddy.


    I'm hoping to get into it!
    I drove the course in Vegas, SOOO much fun.

    We should plan a trip to the Miller Motorsportspark!

    there is a local Porsche Owners group down here who hosts a monthly autocross & high speed driver education event.
    i have always wanted to try this but my current set up really wont allow me, lol. Skinnys dont corner well.

    im wanting to get a new set of wheels/tires for this type or racing.


    what do you all think about the ability of a auto tranny car competing in an event like this?

    I've been building my car for this ever since the motor blew last december. Its now running and has a 03 cobra IRS in it w/ front coil overs and 250-300# springs. I'll be attending a SCCA drivers class in June at kirshaw, SC. Should be fun.. my SCCA racing buddy got me into it when i started hanging out with him.. just gotta go to that class then he said he'd show me the ropes in his 2000 Cobra R then let me take it around, then take me in my car and do the same. Then if im comfortable i get to take his 66 vette out and have some fun with a car that'll stop and handle like no bodies business :D

    Well, I didn't post it in my intro since it's not an SN95 - but this is mine:

    1991 Ford Mustang GT - SCCA ITE (can run some other classes with other sanctioning bodies)
    R-block 331
    Griggs WC
    Backhalved - Three-link

    It's been sitting for a while - I just don't have the money to run it anymore. Tires/Fuel/Repairs just got out of hand.

    Paul.

    It is. If someone can host them - I have two fun little vids of it. They're about 3 megs each.
