Ah, gotcha. Autox is definitely more laid back since it's at much lower speeds and low risk, but that doesn't mean you can't get crazy and have a blast! I seriously love autox's, and feel sorry for anyone who isn't able to have fun at them. On track you need to remain calm and collected to go drive well and go fast, at autox you get to go crazy! Autox's are like rollercoaster rides for me. Short but such a rush!

Either way I'm not good enough to be competitive so it's just for fun and maybe a nice parkway cruiser that my wife might enjoy as well.
Tracking a Subaru is a long and expensive road to head down. But I'm in too deep to give up now! That being said, it's me vs 5 Corvettes this weekend. Anyone interested in coming to watch me give them a driving lesson if it rains.

Mitsubishi would look at entry lists and void warranties, but Subaru never went that far. However if you have something come up, any performance parts will be blamed for causing the issue and most likely void your claim. Kyle didn't get his engine overhaul covered because Brown said his Accessport was the reason the #4 ringland cracked. Just pathetic, considering so many people have had that happen, myself included. I really wish Subaru had just done the right thing and covered anyone with that issue, no questions asked. There's an obvious design flaw.

Hmm. How does your fluid level look?
