dude, in an autoX powerful cars <> FTD cars. Check out the fast cars, it's often the nimble but "weaker hp" cars like the miatas, integras etc... But it varies from courses to courses. If the course you went to has alot of straights then it's just pedal to the metal. But if it has a lot of turns (true autoX IMHO) then the smaller and better suspensioned cars will walk away from the rest. All the best. Keep on enjoying dude!

It had a good mix of straights and sharp turns. decreasing radius, slalom, straights, it had it all. I didnt have to worry with heel toe. i hit the rev limiter in 2nd but it wasnt for more than a second or 2 so using 3rd would have been a waste of time, so no need for heel/toe.

im my class (Equipe Rapide uses same as SCCA, i was in STS) the fastest car i rember of was a gentleman running 58.xxx in an impreza. He had BFG KDW, KYB AGX, camber plates, ft strut bar, springs, Cobb intake, Subaru performance exhaust. This was my first time to auto-x so im pleased, espicaly on the RE92's. I will know when the times are posted on the web site. I was too hurried at the end to get all the results.

Post 1st auto-x

I had the greatest time ever. I had an experienced Scoobie driver walk the course with me and it helped lots. I did pretty good, i was around 6 seconds slower than the race tired cars (Supra TT, Firehawk, bad a$$ mustang) on my RE92 tired car. There was a turbo RS there with that experienced driver, hanging with the Supra TT. The only suspention mods on the turbo RS was a 20mm rear bar and BFG KDW tires. Im am now an iniated auto-x junkie. Hope to see some of you guys/girls killing the cone with me.
