    Here's the pics of the Fabtech Honda in ST that had a wheel come off on course.

    That ST hub repair that was done in 8 minutes by much of the ST grid, with a spare from Hillis, was pretty damn cool.

    Here's our pics from the 2009 Nationals:

    Another big congrats to Mike Simanyi and his team of drivers for winning the SMOD and SML classes at the 2009 SCCA Solo Nationals! Did it in a 2WD non-boosted car, which was very cool. Here's a few pics:

    Mike drove the wheels off the car!

    Chris piloting the car in a semi-wet run (yes, a 2WD car won with wet conditions!)

    The hood is staying open via a special lightweight composite Euro prop rod, with elastomer wind retention strap

    Warning: Winning your class at Nationals by large amounts can cause the condition known as permagrin

    Very straightforward setup: 300 whp N.A. power, 18x10s with 285 Hoosiers, 2600 pounds, great suspension, maximum downforce, excellent driving.

      Interesting Note: He could have placed second in XP

      Just goes to show that you don't need an LS1 to drive an E36 in XP. Though I'm sure as time goes by that adage may fall by the wayside.

        I wasn't particularly happy with how I drove. The car was faster than I was. Yes, I won ESPL. But my boyfriend was 1.5s faster than me on the East Course, and he is rarely that much faster than me in my own cars (whether it be the WRX, the green Camaro or the black Camaro). I think I need to stop driving the WRX like a DS car and start driving it like an ESP car.

          Congrats on the win!

          After watching your videos... you need a seat and a harness.
