Car: 2004 WRX STI
Class: STU
Engine: Stock. Drop in filter. KB oil pickup.
Drivetrain: Group N mounts.
Suspension: Coilovers (12kg/10kg). Steering rack bushings.
Alignment: Stock specs & ride hieght.
Tires: Dunlop star specs (225/45/17)


This will be my first season autocrossing an STI, I look forward to learning more about the car as the season goes on, maybe get a few tips from members who have a couple years of GC/GD/GR chassis conage under their belts. The previous cars I have autocrossed are a far-cry from the capability of an STI, so I have alot to learn!

I'm in for the the 8th at Devens, #42 STU.
Anyone else?

Great thread, I was looking for something exactly like this. Just got my BRZ last month and I'm hoping to do some autox once I get some new tires.

Drivetrain: Stock
Suspension: Stock Springs, Stock Struts, 22-24 mm Whiteline RSB

Met a few of the other Novice and Subaru drivers from my heat, every one was cool and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Feel free to stop by and say hey if your going to be there.

SCCNH represent! Next event is a driver's school 8/11 and an autocross on the 12th.

Been running with this club for 2+ years and it's a great group and very laid back. Admittedly not as high speed as Devens though.

Not going to bore with mods, but I run my STI SE in SM and have 275 Hankook Z214 C71s

First post ever!

I will be at Deven's airfield on August 18th. I was at the event on July 8th and I'm pretty sure I saw Ibrake4scoobs' car there (not sure if we met). My first event as well, and I'm hooked, too!

Looks like I'm not the only new Tom on here!
I really need to get into this stuff ASAP. I recently got an '08 LGT from a fellow NESIC-er which he has taken to tracks, but I haven't yet. I think it's about due for a trip to one... How much fun did you have with your car there?

Nope, None, fun is not allowed.

You should definatly try to make an event before the season ends this year but I will warn you, it is addicting. Being my first season im expecting massive withdrawls this winter.

Doesnt seem like theres anything close to either Marlborough or Amherst except for those ft. Devins meets, which look awesome, but registrations closed. Anyone know anything local to the central/eastern MA area?

I was in heat two. Part of the UMass crowd.

If there's any other UMass drivers out there looking to try this out, there were plenty of us there already and everyone enjoyed it.

Update As of 8/6/2012

Went for another trip to Devens but this time with NE SVT.



(Please excuse the awful cell phone pic, 2 built 94-95 BMW 5 series, my stock RS and an LS Swapped Miata)

Had a good time, met some good people and ran into a few old freinds. Alot more track time then SCCA, 10 runs total with a provided lunch of pizza, subs and drinks, can't beat it for $55 all day.
Very organized, not alot of down time between runs and fast competition. (Where I was no where even near!)

Got a few ride alongs in a 1G DSM and Miata and it showed me just how much I have left to learn.

If any one else is attending the NER SCCA event at Devens on the 18th of August stop by and say hello!

Had a blast Sunday, nice to meet you Warren. I hope I gave you some good tips. Managed to get the slowest time in my class. Found out the hard way that drag radials are for drag racing only!
Had just bought a set of wheels with new Azenis that I placed up front and put the drag radials in the back just to trash them at one event. It was like driving on ice I spent half of the day sideways. There are no sidewalls in these tires so every turn was scary.

Overall, it was a good day. First time racing my miata and I wanted to learn this whole rwd thing, which I learned pretty fast. Gonna try and make the next event, gonna need two more azenis first though! The NE-SVT club was great, lots of seat time and lunch was amazing (chicken parm pizza was delicious).

11 Runs? Nice! When did you get a Miata Matt?

SCCNH has an event this upcoming Sunday at Loudon, I'll be up there trying to hold off the Hondas in Street Modified.
