autox + random bad stuff = a good day

well i took the mustang out to another autox event, i was planning on getting some in car vids but that was just one area that got screwed up on race day, every thing that went wrong:

forgot my numbers (dunno how, i remembered them before i left)
i didn't get the adapter to put the camera on a tripod (realised this after rushing to get the tripod mounted in the rear seat)

ok, thats not to bad, everything kinda worked out, i just didn't get ne pics. while racing i got to try out my new r comps, now the rear stuck like glue and the front was slipping (just the oppisite of my street tires) which was my fault cause i never drove on them before.

at the end of it all switching tires back, somehow a stud on the right rear tire stripped, the lugnut has no threads for the first 3-5 rows or so and the begining threads on the stud are one nice smooshed together flatten metal...

but all in all, even though some of this stuff was really frustrating and only realising them when your running around trying to get through registration and tech, and go home, it was an awesome day. I'm actually surprised that i had so much fun racing and talking to other mustang/f stock drivers that all these proplems seem like nothing.

I don't remember where i fell into f stock, there were 6 drivers including myself, ill post the results when the post them online

Re: autox + random bad stuff = a good day

i will go on, i fixed the main problem (the broken stud) and made my self a checklist that ill print off before the next race so i have everything ready to go. i'm can't wait till the next 2 events, they are on the same weekend and on a huge open paved area that a shut down mill is letting us use. I guess other car clubs use it also, but its about 3.5-4 hrs away and i don't know much about the other clubs.
