Autocrossed My 8th Gen Today

Competed in my first autocross today, and I had a blast! I'd recommend it to anybody, there are few better ways to have fun behind the wheel. I ran in the STX class, which I expected to be completely noncompetitive in, and actually finished 4/5. Not last! I've got a screenshot of the bottom part of the times, and somebody has a video somewhere.

As a side note, I noticed two interesting things today. One, the brakes held up fine, gave me enough woah power, and didn't fade. Second, the power steering fluid got hot during the later afternoon runs,which caused it to be noisy if turning at parking speeds.

Cool!!! Wish I could but I wouldn't want to try making my boat handle!
