    1st place overall? Or of your class? Just asking because one of those is a lot bigger deal than the other. I also got 1st place, in SMF at my region's AX last Sunday, but was way behind in Pax. Maybe I'm a perfectionist, or hard on myself, but I didn't think I did that well.

    Cool deal.. With auto X where you place is all relative to the competition you have. but as they say, a win is a win...

    What tires are you running? Been using Federal rsr 215/45r17 on 17x7.5

    I just got in the mail 225/40r17’s Hoosiers to put on 17x8 for maybe one more event this year if weather holds out.

    I've actually only ran my street tires at AX this year 225/45R17 on 17x7.5. Continental DW's (the old tire). I save my good tires for the track (I know you steer clear now). So that's probably why I feel like I could do better, because I'm not really optimized for my class. I've never run Hoosiers on the MINI. I bet that'd be insane.

    I’m sure it will be a blast with Hoosiers lol. The wife was all for it. Until they showed up yesterday lol. Then had to break the news that wheels will be coming too. Guess she thought I would swap tires off rims at the events
