Well, it actually made it. GOt there and bled the brakes twice nad the brakes were ready. After 2 bottles of stop leak, the cooling system stabilized. After a QT of Lucas oil stabilizer, the oil leak was legal. I only got 2 runs in tho....i have both on video, but unfortunatly, the AWESOME launch wasent on tape for the second run. what a bummer. Ive got...one good pic. And a few others to show before the event.

Ive got the two vid files, they are 18mb each...if anyone is interested...I'll have to uploadthem somewhere. I dont ahve a place to do that.

Copy and paste the link for the pic.

I'll vouch for the launch! :headbang: It made the legacy's look very very bland! lol.... I very much loved the 1st low to 1st high shift! lol....

Will, I'll try to setup ftp access for you on my site in just a minute.

Sweet! Was this the NASA event that was announced at the last CCR autocross?

I may do some RX autocrossing myself next season (though I'll probably stick to the 2.5RS for most events).

Unfortunately, my RX is an 86 (and thus part time 4WD). Maybe I can just launch it in 4WD then shift back into FWD before I hit the first turn...ROFL :D

Probably should put the disclaimer:

Note: two of those videos (the avi's) are 18mb each! lol...

Bumm, Geocities (aka Yahoo) won't let me view the pics in your first post. Saw the mpeg, looks cool, but looks like a lot of smoke on deceleration on the second lap.

Try to copy and paste the links in new windows. I cant even view it from clicking on it. Copy and paste.

The smoke was from coolant/oil leakage...that and I was turning 7500 on a few places.
