  1. Haha I'm not so sure about that, boys... In 5 or 10 years time, that puts us near 2030. By then, I bet driving fossil fuel-powered cars will be prohibitively expensive because governments will continue to shove electric cars down our throats.
  2. So they finally released the details on it... https://driving.ca/chevrolet/corvette/features/feature-story/motor-mouth-mid-engine-corvette-c8-stingray 0-60mph in under 3 seconds, mid-engined V8 for less than $70,000 CDN? Why would anybody bother with Boxsters and Caymans now, when this thing has Lambo Huracan performance? This thing will be a game-changer. I can totally see dealerships having huge wait-lists and massive dealer markups on price. But still, that price-vs-performance point is ridiculous compared to any of the competition.
  3. They might as well rename that lot to Normandy. If you thought the RRX grounds have gotten bad, that lot is something else.
  4. Yeah, the Alerus Center events were fun, but some of those transitions down narrow bits of curb were pretty sketchy. And I'll never forget that green Fiero when we raced in the Steinbach Mall parking lot that smashed so hard sideways into the curb that it got beached on top of it. I'll be the first to admit that one the main reasons that I don't autox much anymore is because I really dislike St. Andrews. It seems like we have this very same discussion every year though about promoting autocross, or about finding a better venue, sadly with no luck.
  5. I used to be a regular.... My excuse now is two kids. But don't worry. I expect to make a triumphant return in the next few years and reclaim FTD at every event like I used to.
  6. Spring booster = huge increase in fuel consumption (allegedly). I don't have one myself, but from everything I've read (for BMWs at least), you eat fuel like crazy since the car is constantly revving so high, from the illusion of it being faster under your right foot.
  7. Already posted in the other thread, but I'm assuming this thread is the "official" one, so to speak. Kosta F. Member #1622 Keeping #68
  8. I'd be down for a drive like always. We have a great time every year. Hopefully we get a few more cars out this time. The past few years it's been just a few of us, which is fine of course, but the more the merrier.
  9. The other thing that just occurred to me, is that the original poster says that the car is fairly new... Pretty much all newer cars have side and/or curtain airbags as standard. I can see a roll cage getting in the way of the airbags functioning properly. Not sure if that factors into MPI's reasoning, but I can understand it if it does.
  10. Nish's GT-R ran in the 10's when we took it to the drags... Some stock cars can do those times.
