Sweet looking Vibe... the fusion makes us fast.Right now I'm in STS class against a Subaru RS (non turbo) wagon and a ford focus. They have a lot more experience then I do but I'm catching up to them in times. I'd hate to be in a class with the coopers... those things are very quick.

Valerie and I got *KILLED* in G-stock winter 2005 season.So we switched to our local "Street Tire class" (Stock-class rules + 140 Treadwear, then Indexed), and got *KILLED* there, too.Haven't autocrossed the Vibe since:A: I took the MR2 to a full-day Autocross School this spring. andB: The Vibe got moved to H-stock.Anyway, after about 5 events, to save wear and tear on my daily driver, Val and I bought an MR2 as our dedicated race car. Then she took a ride with a local MR2 hotshoe, and they got loose, almost spur, and she got out of the car looking a very interesting and pale shade of green (I didn't think anyone could *be* that color, actually)...decided that Autocrossing makes her motionsick, and hasn't come out with me since. Where I *still* get *KILLED* in Street Tire...but if I blow it up, it's only a $600 investment. Now, when I codrive other people's cars......I'm the one doin' the killin'.Last event I was at, I took 1st place in AT, and in the IS300, I was (one cone away from) "Not DFL" in the local X (for eXpert) class (Where the guy what for offered me the killer co-drive runs)...and was a full 7 seconds faster than the next fastest D-Stock prepped car.*scratches head* How's THAT work again?

LOL... Cliff does that with pictures of *every* car...note that the pic of the MR2 is the same way... Even RX-8's look like they're about to fall off the edge of the planetary disc or something... (And that's the control tower for Denver International Airport way off in the background...)

Quote, originally posted by trdvibe »what does the 2:3 mean in your pics?? I think it's the image ratio (600x400 = 3:2). Guess it's the photog's requirements.

Yes, Cliff sells prints, too...these are the proofs that he hands out...and he can do 4:3 prints (ex: 640x480 or 1024x768 screen resolution, or 8.5x11 print) of some pics...but others need a 2:3 (600x400ratio or 1024x680 or 11x7" print) because of the framing of the shot...
