Awesome!!! Thank you. I love the following shot. You can see how much body roll the amc has, but with the wing connected directly to the axle you can see how level the wing still is. So cool. Thanks again.

They ain't as good as standing in corner 4 watching you let loose with that thing!

laugh

Edit -- this came out wrong, they are really great pictures and I'm glad to have some of me too.

But anybody that doesn't want to work the course or corners is missing a great time. I was completely amazed at how hard you drove the Jag.

I think anybody that has been out on the course will understand.

I had a blast even though my car didn't leave the driveway. Due to massive oil leak. It was my r32 4 door. It's my daily driver. A non turbo rb20e .Not fast by any stretch. It's a great daily driver. Gets 27mpg.

By the end of the day, he was getting real good at linking these corners.  Skyline drift gif:

I had an absolute BLAST! 

It was my first time auto-crossing in 14 years and the Jaaag performed flawlessly despite my shear abuse of it.  It'd be cool if someone from GRM was able to capture it on video, not because I'm a good driver, but because the sound with the electric cut outs open put a HUGE smile on my face.

My best friend and I put the engine back in this on a Wednesday evening for the $2012 Challenge.  I drove it to work ~60 miles round trip as a shakedown then we headed out from Sutton, WV to Gainesville FL at 3am Friday morning.  Never had an issue, til after my first run on the Drags my friend went to move it, and he came back and said it wouldn't start.  I'd brought a few spares, but nothing seemed to resolve it.  Jeremy Randolph took me a few places to get a new coil, someone else pulled their coil wires off their Challenge 944 beside us.  We pulled the plug on the ignitor, and it was green with corrosion.  Luckily for us, CRC had put a trial size of their QR Electrical Contact Cleaner, a few quick sprays and we didnt have another issue the whole 800 miles home.  Cant wait to hit the Challenge again with my kid who's 8months now!

Most of you know me as the Saturn guy, out of 13 challenges 12 were Saturns' and one Pontiac. For 2019 I used an Astra for the first time. Got this one out of my neighbors backyard where it had been sitting for several years. Now it really is my daily driver!  So far I have logged 10,500 miles on it and really happy with it. Still needs some work, that will happen once the weather warms up but over all, I'm very pleased. Looking forward to driving it back for the 2020 challenge.  Also have to give a shout out to Andrew (please don't call him Andy) Nelson.

Man, I need to get back to this event!  I doubt there's been a Maxima since mine in $2015...might be time for another one!

I finally got onto the forum! I've been reading responses and finally actually read through all the rules now! (Whoops, probably should have done that BEFORE I bought the car :D ). 

Here's Onofrio Pollock Racing's story (Attached is our press release). We are a new team this year and so excited!

Awesome and welcome! Can't wait to see the car (my first challenge car was also a BMW, but I didn't have the skills to pull off a full art car theme, even though I wanted to).
