2nd consecutive weekend of National autocrossing, this time at the ProSolo at Oscoda. Small courses because the site really isn't that big, but pretty fun courses.

Finished 3rd in class to the same cast of characters but much closer this time. 1-4 in GS is separated by less than .3 sec after 2 days. 2-4 is 0.033 sec.

2 weekends in the row in trophy is a first. But wish it was higher position. Gave it my best shot though, was 2nd into my last right side run.

Right(not actually the fastest, that run isn't on video but this is about 0.014 sec slower


41st on Pax was also the best I've ever done in a National event...

Good work Racing Maniac. I had a good weekend of racing as well (they were not national-level events but there were a lot of people). I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of how to getting speed out of the GTI (it was easy in the C5 - ha)

GTI Chris, Did you go to the Hoosier challenge? If so, who won GS? I usually make it, but with the wife a week away from having a baby, it was a no go.

Hi MK7Brian,

I did go to the Hoosier Challenge (189 entries) - I ended up winning. I was 23rd on PAX. We had 4 run groups, with GS running in group 3. We had only 3 runs and the first run was dry with the other 2 being a bit slippery. It was a fun course!

GTI Chris that is awesome!!! Good to see a GTI showing those ST's what's up. Hopefully I can make it next year.

Thanks MK7Brian!

So a question for everyone - Has anyone used Bilstein B6's? And what are your thoughts? Comparison to Koni Yellows or stock would be appreciated. Has anyone come across the damping curves of these? Would love to hear thoughts.
