10 Replies and 1526 Views Best 5 door for AutoX???  1526  10 Started by  JDM Howdy,   This is my first post and I’m looking for info. I currently own a 1991 Toyota Corolla AE92 front wheel drive wagon. I like the old car, but I will have to put some money in it shortly as it will need a new clutch and the motor is burning a bit of oil. I’m not ready yet to go autox but eventually this is the plan. So should I spend the cash on my current car or should I invest in something better and or newer I need a 5 door vehicle because it needs to be practical.   Her...

0 Replies and 1255 Views New To Autocross  1255  0 Started by  flyin fred Hi, I am new to autocross, but not new to racing. Twenty plus years road racing motorcycles and go karts.  I've got a 1990 Miata with HD front and rear sway bars and Tokia gas shocks with Flyin Miata springs (1.00' drop).  It also has a cold air induction and a momo racing seat.  I have a set of 17' wheels and another set of 14' wheels.  I was planning on using the 14' for the race tires. What would be the suggested tire size and choice.  I have been considering Kumho V...

1 Replies and 992 Views Noob to Autocrossing  992  1 Started by  James D Hey my name is James, I own a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS. It is a great autocross vehicle and I plan to finally make use of it by participating in the last autocross of 2007 at Rantoul Aviation Center in the Champaign IL area. I'll be in the area for a JDM show the day before so I figured I may as well pop my autocross cherry on my way back home. I'm pretty exited and a little nervous. I guess I'll just get there early and get everything figured out. I'll probably get owned since it will be my fi...

2 Replies and 987 Views car mod advice  987  2 Started by  Solless I will be starting solos next year in the STS2 category with my 1997 del Sol. I was wondering what sort of upgrades you guys think are most important to be competitive in solos and in the STS2 category. Currently the car has upper front and rear strut bars. Vented and slotted power slot rotors with brembo racing brake pads and lowering springs (which I will be replacing). It also has an intake that I need to replace. What else might you suggest and where do you guys shop for your parts

4 Replies and 1288 Views how much time AM i leaving on the course??  1288  4 Started by  XJDano so I think I am OK at driving my car. I know I don't get 100 out of it, but I would like to try to compare my times to another more experienced driver. I usualy don't let anyone I don't know touch anything of mine, but in thise case, it's pretty much the same thing. So to anyone who would like to co-drive the metro at an event I would really appreciate it. In HS I can guess I am right where I need to be on times, because I usualy end up in third 10 secons behind first and clost to 5 second...

5 Replies and 1642 Views Cone blind  1642  5 Started by  Old and slow I attended an event this weekend and found that I go 'cone blind'. All  can see is orange I become disoriented and lose my way. I had a great time even though I came in dead last. I have some track experience but I find auto-x intense and very challenging. Any and all advice, ideas, whatever will be greatly appreciated.   Thanks

1 Replies and 941 Views H stock questions  941  1 Started by  kirkm1976 I want to try this.  Unfortunately my only option is my 1995 saturn sw1 5 speed.  I gather it is h stock.  The only mod is the interior from an SL2 because mine was trashed.  Will this be a problem.  I believe they built some SL and SL1's with the SL2 interiors in 95 as this was the end of the model and they were getting rid of stuff.  However I don't know about the wagons or if this is an issue either way.

14 Replies and 1263 Views Somewhat new, just wondering about something  1263  14 Started by  Singleslammer Hi, I am somewhat new to auto-x and new to this forum. I have been racing my SVT focus, but have a 90&39; nissan 240sx that I am wanting to prepare for either GS or STS. I was wondering which I could be more competitive in. I know that I couldnt probably compete with the Minis, but I am not sure how the car (and me) would preform with r-compunds. I was just curious what you fellow racers would suggest to someone who is lost in the classes.

3 Replies and 953 Views Carbon Fiber?  953  3 Started by  Waybous I know carbon fiber is real big in the Import world, but if there is carbon fiber on a car will it be place into another class as far a S.C.C.A. rules go. I kinda figured that CF hoods, doors, deck lids, and fenders would put you into a higher class, but what about CF dash, seats, intakes, and small things like that. Also will the same rules apply to replacing steel with fiberglass

2 Replies and 1056 Views what psi to use, and what handling to expect with over-width tires  1056  2 Started by  root I am getting 225/45/17 RT615 tires for the stock 17x6.5J wheels on the mazda3.  The tire size is a bit too wide for the rim, but I see many people using tires that are waay too wide for the rim at autocross events, so I assume the effects of this sort of mismatch are well understood. My questions are: what pressure should I run the tires at for autocross  For the stock tires (205/50/17) I was watching rollover, and ran the lowest pressure that would not allow any (41 psi for eagle R...
