    Here's some photos from today's auto-x of my car.

    Here's the entire album: http://picasaweb.google.com/neema3/AutoX9708#

    I ran a 49.188. The average time was 53.xxx and the fastest time was 43.xxx and the slowest being 1:16.xxx

    I was on some shitty Road Hugger tires. Hard econo-tires which sucked. However, I did pull off some mad tight all-wheel drive drifts trying to go faster. The STi rear sway bar that I put on here made it very very twitchy and the rear end was stepping out a lot all over the place which I didn't really like. but I did outrun some Evo's and WRX's today. I'm satisfied with my time, but not happy. This was my popping the cherry on the Impreza and I wasn't sure of what she was capable of until towards the end.

    I think with two more laps I could've easily gotten a 47.xxx. I severely underestimate my differentials and my car's remarkable grip despite the unremarkable tires I was on. Better tires and I think I could eek out a high 46 today.

    Second run, this was my slowest run that I actually finished which was a 51.xxx. You can see why I was so slow, not enough WOT.

    Third run, I severely fucked up and went for a third lap. You can hear how pissed off I was at the end. They didn't flag me until the very end, so whatever.

    Fourth run, my crack run. I don't know what I was doing, but I just smoked everywhere. The fucking indicator cones at the end fucked everything up for me, I had no idea where the finish was coming in at that angle, which explains the wiggle.

    My fastest lap. This is an out car view. Good times. I'm sort of happy with the results, but I wanted to pop 48's. :( Oh well, next time I guess. Le sigh.

    Enjoy!

    i've never heard any noise louder than when the big boys drag race. (top fuel? or Top alc? i forget) That noise shakes your soul.

    You've never been to a rally stage event have you?

    The barrel of angry bees followed by the explosions from the anti-lag with the whining of the turbos > top fuel dragsters.

    It's a whole symphony of sounds vs. a tuba.

    7000+ horsepower that. I watched Drag racing on TV, but i dont think the mics can even register that many decibles.

    Don't get me wrong, watching rally is crazy; just not as LOUD as the NHRA.

    :hsugh::hsugh::hsugh::hsugh::hsugh::hsugh::hsugh:

    12 second cars are crawling.

    It ran a 12.3 on Falken Azenis 615's with toe and suspension set up for track and Auto-x. It would've been an 11 second car easily if I had it setup for Drag racing.

    My point is, drag racing is faggy because my MR2 could run low 12's but still does so much more than your shitty drag cars. It brakes, it turns, it got 30mpg, only made 230whp and it was comfortable to drive in.

    I don't own a drag car. The camaro ran a 11.3 lastr time it hit a stip (well over a year ago) but it's been set up for corner work for some time now.

    The only difference between my 11.3 setup and my circut setup is a bit more boost and a set of MTs.

    And economy is for tree-hugging faggots. :fawk:

    Right, I'm pretty certain I could get close to 11.3's on a set of MT's as well and if I changed the suspension and made it ready for drag racing and if I raised the boost.

    I was doing all of that on a single set up not even pushing past 250whp. I'm doing a lot more for less. I had an intake and exhaust and I had a boost controller. My suspension consisted of KYB adjustables, eibach springs and stock wheels on the 615's. AND I had air conditioning.

    My impreza will be even faster than my MR2.
