Super late update – been getting my ass kicked by school & work.
Chris & I headed out for the SCCA CSCC AutoX event on September 13, 2008. Super fun, ran into a few other autocross buddies there. Chris took out his stock 350z, still burning off the crappy performance whatever they are tires he currently has on. Not much has changed to Kandi at this point other than retarding timing slightly from last time.
During the straights, the car just didn’t want to move, especially after a few runs. I began turning off the car & letting it sit in between runs – felt a little better.
The course, as always, was very fun. Before lunch I was able to get within .2 seconds of Chris’ time, but he pulled away by almost a full second by the end of the day. Couple of my runs are shown in my gallery, runs from much faster people & some pictures available at the solo2.com forums.
Not my fastest run, but video of Chris & me being silly @ launch time (higher quality version available directly on youtube – couldn’t embed it):
I also attended the championship on Sunday. The car felt much better going the opposite direction – the fewer number of runs couldn’t have hurt either. This time I wasn’t last place!! WOO HOO! 2nd to last, ftw! I’m still super far off from being competitive anywhere, but it’s still fun.

Next practice/championship is October 11-12, 2008 – can’t wait! Got a couple surprises up my sleeve this time around.
