FCSCC Auto-x, Great Pics

Had another auto-x Sunday. I didn't fare too well. The suspension needs some major tuning or swapping out. Springs are too soft. But besides that I had fun.
Got 5 runs all day, and I only completed one good run. The first two runs I did something I have never done with the car.....I spun out...not a partial spin, but a full 360. My first one was almost a 720, the second was a 180. I have a blurry vid on Youtube being uploaded of the 180. There is also another vid where you can see me sideways and hear the crowd gasp.
I finished 3rd in class, which is really low for me. I did learn a lot about the car. I meet John Winchester, a regular at Nationals. This guy is good! There was also a guy, I forgot his name is A-stock with an 08 Sti, that was nasty and a guy in H-stock that ran faster than me! He did win nationals last year in the exact same car. Another guy I meet was a AMS Evo time attack driver, John xxxxxxx. He knows Paul Gerrard and Mark Daddio. This guy drove a stock rented Cobalt (non SS), to a G-stock class win and was third in PAX.
I was flagged for being too loud again, but this time they got a gun on me. Most times they measure your sound from 75ft. Well, they measured me from about all the way across the lot, easily over a football field. I was 100dbA. Yes, thats ####in loud.
There was a professional photographer there who took some great pics. He sent me a link, and wouldn't you know it, I was the first 3 lines of pictures. He got some great shots. Justin, you can imagine which one I wanted graphited.

I saved the best till last

Gotta changed out to play with the big boys
