    I got a chance to run my 94 for the first time in a couple of years. She ran perfect other than backing off the double nutted axle nuts on the driver's side, no damage to the wheel bearing though.

    Nice driving! Looks like those C6 brake are paying off! What kind of tires and suspension are you running? It looks like it corners nice and flat, and the tires hold real well!

    This really makes me want to get back on the road course!

    225/50R16 BFG R1 tires. I'm not going back to street tires! My suspension is koni sport struts with eibach lowering progressive rate springs, G3 subframe, and 22/26 mm sways with rod-ends for the rear links (a noticeable difference in stiffness even over poly bushing endlinks). Roll is well controlled but pitch leaves a little to be desired. I'm in the process of converting to coilovers, this may be my last session on this setup.

    That track looks like a blast! Tarmac looks brand new. And the near constant elevation change and that camber valley of esses was something to experience I bet. Where is this?

    Oregon Raceway Park. They run the track in both directions and can make two separate circuits out of it, lots of variation.

    Nice driving! Patient at the beginning, slow in - fast out of the turns, good apexes.
    I had similar set-up in my 95. 19/26mm sways, poly bushings, solid aluminum subframe bushings, Tokico/Eibach, front/rear strut tower braces, 96 brakes, braided brake lines.
    Once you go R1’s (I had them also) you NEVER go back.
