Hahah hell no. I will get one eventually. Can hardy tell in those pictures. I need to have the rear right quarter panel fixed. I got tapped by another car in the rain near 92.

Looks good.

I see that Omar beat me to the bumper comment. Sucks to hear about your quarter panel.

Yeah its all good thought. No structural damage, just a little bend that I have already been told can be straightened and everything. Just need to save some money and get er done.

Great pix. Looks like a blast.
I have a question for you though.
Another member mentioned that when he AutoXs, he rolls down all the windows to put more weight tward the bottom of the car and pushes the sunroof all the way back to move some more weight tward the rear of the car.

Now, I know in AutoX, you don't really get up to a very high speed, but would that help at all during your races?
Or, would the wind resistance not be worth it?

Interesting man, never thought of that, but I guess it makes some sense.

That is pretty interesting. I would assume it makes some difference. Speed wise I was usual 65-85mph. 110mph down the main straight and about 95 on the back straight. Windows are done for the point by system. Thanks for the comments guys.
