Hey everybody. My name is Nick and I'm one of the new guys here. I drive a 94 Mustang GT which is stock for the most part. I am completely new to the forum as well as the Autocrossing world. I was encouraged to join from one of my best friends, Justin, who is a fabricator/installer over at Maier Racing.. maybe some of you Mustang guys know of him.

Anyways, I ended up going to the Oakland Autocross event last weekend after Justin told me to come out. After going for a couple rides, I was instantly hooked. I've always been a car guy, but I've only experienced drag racing. Seems like a blast to be going around corners and just being able to test the limitations of your car. I have a couple mods to my suspension right now, but will be completely going thru the whole thing soon.

I hope to make it out to the next event to get a bit of seat time and just learn the sport in general. Hope to meet some of you one of these days. Always willing to listen to tips, tricks, and advice.

Nick

Welcome to the forum, and it's good to hear that you had fun and plan to continue. Unfortunately, that Oakland event was the last one of the year. The next event won't be until Feb 9 of next year.
