My first autocross event!

My best time was 50.3, the best run on the course was 44.xx by a 1LE Camaro. I was able to keep up with the SS's (for the most part), so I was happy.

Up late installing new 1 piece drive shaft from the drive shaft shop. Pictures suck because it was getting late and sun was long gone

Exhaust and old two piece drive shaft


New drive shaft partially installed.

Well over all it is pretty good. I've been having to tweak my suspension, mainly the end links. The driveshaft seems fine now. Really the only thing is my idle, it still hiccups / stumbles. Nothing major BUT it is kinda annoying.

However I did sheer off ANOTHER bolt that holds the supercharger tensioner. This is the third time and this bolt was grade 8. Clearly it is the design that is the problem..

Sorry to hear about the bolts. Is there a way you can go to a larger dia. bolt?

What are the tweaks you have to do to the end links?
