We competed at a Martin Sports Car Club autocross this Sunday. Per finished second in STS in our essentially stock SE-R, while Kim, Per's wife, finished 6th. We were about 2 seconds behind the winner, who was driving an E46 3-series BMW on fresh Falken Azenis tires.

Our tire options were a little less than stellar, as we raided our corporate shed and came up with some three-year-old BFGs that were well aged. These tires were mounted on a set of the ugliest rims ever cast. They were, however, slightly better than the off brand tires and narrow SE-R rims that the car normally rolls on.

Our new wheels, Team Dynamics Pro Race 1 wheels showed up today, their awesome anthracite finish is a stark and attractive contrast to the ugly chrome wheels we had on the car over the weekend. We also scored a used set of 205/50ZR15 Falken Azenis tires for $100 from a local racer. These will be good tires for our initial suspension and alignment sorting.
