This will be remaining at the top for a long time to come!
I have to thank Bill for the opportunity to drive his car at the June 5th SC autocross!
Bill was kind enough to allow me to co-drive his 86 MR2. He has a J-spec supercharged motor installed with an overdrive
supercharger pulley. The car is pretty strong motor-wise and the suspension allows much more tweaking than I have done
before. It was also my first opportunity to drive on R-compound tires. That is a whole new experience and I found
my adrenaline running just like at my first autocross.
For now, I am planning on co-driving with Bill again at the Laurens divisional. As long as nothing comes up between
now and then for either of us, we should do a good showing at the event!
Well, Bill wasn't able to make it to the divisional event at Laurens due to engagements at work so I drove my TDI Golf.
I wish Bill had made it, it was a great showing for MR2s.
Jeff was kind enough to let me drive his 2ZZ MR2 at the BMW plant. I can't thank him enough. I can't add
pictures now becaus I am out of the country but I wanted to add this to thank him for the gracious use of his car.
I liked this car quite a bit and would love to get one if Toyota would produce it so that they could work the kinks out.
I never put in a time that I liked (I found it hard to get used to and kept losing it on the off camber turns) but got 4th.
That was behind Jeff, Bill and then Caleb but not to bad of a showing. I will try to get my wife to add the picture
of me backing through the finishing lights at the end of my second run. The car was fun and sounded great when it switched
to the higher rpm cams but the whole thing felt a little abrupt for me. Jeff was running on Yokahoma ES100s and they
did pretty well, they put us within a couple of seconds of Bill which I think is commendable for a street tire. His
suspension was also stock so there is room to play with the car and make it a great local autocrosser and possibly a Divisional
