Corona can't stop my doritos from spinning!

That's right, you heard me!

While the current 2020 SCCA AutoX season is essentially DNS (did not start, verses DNF - did not finish) thanks to the Wuhan Flu, that has not stopped me from completing other items that will soon be posted here on the blog...

While I only participated in 5 of 11 points events in the 2019 season, I placed 5th in my class - which is funny considering I am new to AutoX and I am fleshing out chassis/setup issues from the mayhem of 2013-2015. Without divulging the next posts, one item I will be purchasing for the 2021 season is a set of Ohlins coilovers as they are nearly 50% cheaper now than a decade ago.

I have been working with a local welding company to resolve issues from a local speedshop's work; they basically replaced the mid-pipe to axle-back spring flange with a v-band -- I now have wild vibrations after 7.5k...which is not good for the chassis and drivetrain considering how many times I'm spinning that fast.

So...what's next? Two things: 1) Replace a toasted resonator with a new one resonator 😎, 2) NJ SCCA AutoX has some events open at the moment, but that is subject to change.
