Sorry to put these all in one post but my normal email system is down. Count me
in as one (of the silent majority?) who likes the Tour scoring system the way it
is. Regarding my class for next year, Mike B, there was a smiley at the end of
that line. One reason I like FS is that 3 of the top 10 Nats guys are local.
Regarding cheap cars, I don't see a Corvette with abs as all that expensive to
run, although I have to agree lighter cars do equal less tire wear. Denise and
I only went through 8 tires last year in the Celica. Competative cars for $10k

"Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried the CVT variant of the HX? Honda
claimed it was faster than the 5-speed around their test track."
I saw one at an event in Peru, IN last year. It didn't do very well but I
didn't know the drivers or how well the car was set up. It sure sounded funny,
never coming off the revs.
