        NO doubt! I had to shift into 3rd gear 4 times
        The course was fun though.

          Yesterday was super fun! I have to switch to 1st for the awkward U-turn and 3rd on the straight.

          Everything was done at VCMC quality, so I am happy =).

          I like the course design, Lawrence.

            Terrific course - really fun.

            Tara and I both achieved 'Burning Dean Stinger' smell at upon arrival at the stop box. But no problem - the Jetta will get new Ecsta MX's this week.

              Despite running out of fuel for my last 2 runs, it was a smooth event with a nice and fast course. First time I had to use heel toe on at an autocross. It's alot harder than practicing on the streets!

                What did he drive and was it done in style?

                  Yesterday course is very fun and technical setup. Big thanks to LC and DC.
                  Unfortunately, I have problem with my car’s grip all day long without any reason. Using the same setup before, the car just doesn’t behave like it used to be. Braking power drop big time, forcing me to enter the turns with faster than I suppose to every time. The answer popped up when I took my tires off the car. Inner 1/3 of both my front tires are all covered with old tire compound lay on the track. Most of them more than 3mm thick. I spend 30 mins to clean just 1/4 of a tire. It gonna be a long and hard work for me this week to clean all those **** off my tire.

                      Bruce Towes told me that the boys south of the border use a paint scraper. I picked one up from the paint department at Home Depot. It looks like a long plastic handle, with a U shaped blade. The side of the U are quite short, and its a scraper rather than a chisel style action.

                      Works pretty good, but still alot of effort required.

                        Thank Damon and Lawrence for the fun but challenging course with:
                        - the 1st section with deceiving cones that required guts to go flat out all the way before C box
                        - interesting 180 setups that allowed for different driving lines and styles for experiments
                        - open Yaletown box that required smooth action and car placement to go flat out all the way thru' at over 100km/h
                        - offset cone in the middle of the slalom that required slow-down at the right place to go fast

                        Thank Henry and others for their hard work.

                        Thank Oswald and Alvin for letting me drive their S2000s. Excellent handling cars even in stock form.

                        Thank Damon for the comments on my car's characteristics. It's interesting to realize that I've been driving around my car's problem unconsciously!

                              So - all this time, it turns out that Chris' car has been broken?! If you'd like to just give up and switch classes now, I can offer a co-drive in a G-stocker with 21.6 lb/hp. The A/C and climate control are real comfy on those hot BB days and are well worth the extra weight
