    Dwight Mitchell was something of a god when it came to autocrossing a 911.

    And at Parade this year I ran across the female equivalent,,,,Susan Hageman,,,,,she was only there to spectate, but she did drive her green Targa! In her heyday she ran out of jacket sleeve for those SCCA nat'l champion patches

    As a long time autocrosser, I truly enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing.
    Dwight mentions a rear toe out alignment setting. Any suspension experts able to tell me what a toe out value of 3.64 is in "toe out inches"?
