Just the intake takes you out of BS

seems kinda dumb that a small power adder bumps you up into a class with Ferraris and whatnot.

In all reality ASP is primarily Evo's, WRX's (including STI's), and Solstices with the occasional MR2 thrown in. The Z is definitely an underdog in my opinion given that the boost buggies are able to make 400+ hp and 400+ ft-lbs at the wheels along with weighing ~400 lbs less.

I'd be wearing a jacket if I had run my BSP car in ASP last year...

I'm planning on installing and bedding the Hawk pads today, to switch back to OEM pads do they need any bedding, or just install and go?

Yep. If you downsize to 255 on 9's all the way around, you could run STR.

Default Who's ready for AutoX season??

Only run I recorded at Evo School yesterday, last run of the day. This course setup I had run a 27.72 and a 28.11, my instructor challenged me to run a 27.2, I ran 26.82. Overall I learned a lot and really had some good times with the instruction, only the Z06's were running faster. I've got to work on my hand work, they stayed on me about the way I turn the wheel.

Don't know Tom, but Sam doesn't suck.

IMHO you had one of the best in the business. Had Sam as an instructor last year and learned more in 5 min. than I probably had in the course of my entire 2.5 seasons of doing autox.
