Hang on, so, the other competitors had drivers for specific events, were optimizing the tune between each event and if you had a bit more experience in AutoX you would still probably have come in 3rd? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worthy.gif Pretty damn impressive Mark.
This has been an interesting read and despite the fact that perhaps the way they marked some of the events was a bit quirky, I suppose you have to give the organizers credit for at least trying to pitch the competition at street orientated vehicles looking for a broad powerband as against overall power etc.
That said, if those guys had tuners there all weekend, potentially tuning the car for each specific event, mileage, power delivery, drag and auto cross, it seems to go against the grain a bit. Given that the FP3052 from what you and others have said is pretty streetable, if you were serious about doing this again, I would think you could get English Racing to optimize the tune for a few different scenarios and save the profiles in Link. That and a bit of seat time in a cheap car doing AutoX and I'd think you could place really high in an event like this.
Great result anyway in my opinion and it looks like what you brought away from this is that the most important aspect was having a damn good time and making new friends. Can't argue with that!
