not hard right off 18th avenue. dont expect much in the way of the grounds being super nice.. the track isnt raced on anymore because the previous owner didnt pay the bill's and skipped town. real shame so now its for sale :thumbsdow:

Your car is amazing! Sorry about beating you in times I was the driver of the bashed up EF hatch. I do love that track! I hope to see you at some of the next events.

What is the elemental designs meet?

FYI: I did the B20Z2 swap on my last Civic, (me & friends)...but this white hatch came with the B20B, (installed by wrenches via the previous owner).

Autox both of them I did/do though.

its a decent sized home/car audio business based in newton, IA. There pretty well known. They've done quiet a few impressive car install's and i wanted to see what it was all about feel free to look them up. I guess a few of the guys there who have car audio brought up for vechile when we were speaking about auto x.

Crap, I didn't even realize the ED meet was last month. I have been to that for the past few years. I know the guys pretty well. All of my audio stuff is from them (components, sub, amp). If you want quality sound gear without having to pay a ton of money, they are the place to go through.

Back to racing though, there is another race at the Marshalltown track this Saturday. Hopefully, I can get my shocks/struts swapped Friday afternoon/evening so that I can make it to the event.
