      I'll be there, plan is not clear yet as I might be driving my own car or I might not.

      "Pre-run" pressures are set to F33/R36 with the RE71R. This weekend being ProSolo we can't spray tires, but I was resetting the pressure between every run. I've noted with doing shocks I was able to...

      New GTI. The MK7 just felt like better driver over the MK6. Also can get pretty great MPG for DD Duty(my ~Fuelly average around 20k is about 29MPG, including autoXs). Normal high way trips are...

      Might be alignment. When I have the summer alignment dialed in for autocrossing(0 toe all around) the car is more sensitive to road condition and generally "busier" at freeway speed. In winter when...
