Default Dec 8 auto-x (Chlt) and wheel alignment

Is this going to be a big turnout? I'm pretty excited and hopefully my skills will be better this time out.

Also, just got the alignment done to my car and it's lookin' kick butt. They spent 2 hours on it, no joke! The tech said that they set the front camber to -.75 and 0 toe in/out. The rear is non-adjustable though. With the lowering springs I've got a total of -2.00 camber in the rear He said that he put a lot of toe in on the rear and should kick some as_s. I've got Yokohama A520 215/40-17 tires and light 17s so this should be interesting (compared to stock). The 215 width actually looks like 225

Default Here you go..

Hopefully we'll have a large Subaru turnout. Valien, you don't need to pre-register, just show up on time the morning of the event. (this is something all of the Subaru drivers seem to have a problem with) Bring some cash or check, your scca card and your WRX. Otherwise I won't be able to drive it! Here is a link to our website so you can get times and costs: www.ccrsolo2.org

Hope to see you there!

Lookin' forward to seeing everybody there. I've been very busy with the job change and haven't even had time to check our forums.
I think I heard Martin say that the turnout is usually light. Let's make it Subaru heavy!

Default Track length?

Anybody know how the size of the track will be? Also, what about the track surface? I hate it when they're like an old-school course gravel/asphalt surface.

The track will be short and possibly slippery! It's definatly a Subaru event! The weather will decide.

Hey Valien:

If they are allowing ride-alongs, go for a round with pleiades. He'll make your head spin. You might learn something too.

I think it would take me about 2.5 hours to get to the Charlotte autocross. Would it be worth it? Shoud I go or wait until the next one (next season)?

Come on down its worth it. Plus there is a car show inside and paying to get in the autocross gets you free addmision into the show.

Default Ryan!

Got the alignment done at Carroll Alignment on Tryon just before downtown if you're heading north. The place has been around for like 45 years or so and comes highly recommended. Kinda' pricey though. The invoice showed the front at $50 and the rear at $35. You're going to have a problem though like I did and still do. The rear is going to have too much camber and without camber correctors you'll have -2.00. The front can only go to a maximum of -1.2 or so camber.

With that said, anybody know how to do a camber corrector kit for the rear on the Rex? I need to do something quick before the
Auto-x.

P.s. Who's meathead?

If that is not the weekend I have to help my girlfriend move (and if I can afford a tranny flush by then)........ Then I will show up!

And I'm not going to get lost on the course again! Hopefully I will even come in somewhere other than dead last too. I took out the "NON-RECLINABLE SEAT" so now nobody can complain!

The hardest part about these things is getting up at 5AM to make the drive up. I'm not a morning person. Hell, I'm not even a mid-day person. I am strictly an afternoon and evening person.

Default Checked the Mart asphalt today

Yeah, i'm goofy like that. Truth is that it's like less than five miles from my house so... It looked super sweet (prviding that I was at the correct lot, which i think I was). Velvety smooth and and a little sloop but ah well.

I'll see you guys there. BTW, I may have some folks at my place afterwards so...we'll see!

Whiteline has the parts you need. You can go with adjustable strut top plates, adjustable bolts, or adjustable control arms. Be carefull. You may change your class. Sorry, I lost my rule book. Somebody want to jump in and help us with the classicfication?

Speaking of which...do you think rear camber bolts are legal in Street Touring? I'm looking at getting a set for my car but hadn't really thought about the class legality issue. Hmmm...

Default Classification and camber bolts

I was told from a guy in the Motorsports forum that with the various crap that I've done to my WRX that it'd be in "ESP". I've got springs and 17" wheels (however they are a factory option).

So for me this will be just for learning and seat time thing because we all know that I sure as hell won't be competitve in ESP with my inexperience and relatively stock suspension.

*The other question: any of you guys know how to do camber bolts on the rear or could give me a starting place?

It's like 3+ hours or so for me, so I'm not sure I'll be making it. I'm seriously considering it though. Maybe get nhluhr to go now that his WRX is back from the body shop?
