Thumbs up SCCA Solo II Divisional in Houston this WEEKEND!

O.K. All you guys that were bitch'n about the drive last weekend, we better see you at the Auto x this week end. It is a two day event at the greyhound park in south Houston (right next to I 45)

I am not that computer literate to post links on the board, but if you go to the Southwest region on the SCCA site you can get directions as well as check out the track lay out for both days.

So far I know of only two "dedicated" Suby nuts going........ Chris Flemming and Myself.
Chris will be running in G Stock and I will be running in Street Mod, hopefully with 10lbs of boost......... or hopefully it will be

Talking

Oh yea baby, that's what I'm talkin' about. I am there, I'll be running in STR (I'm registered as STR #25). I hope to see lots of Scoobies there. I think Bohanan is running in STS.

Travis, This will be my first one so I can't tell you. I know at the regional level they do here in Dallas.
Anyone else know???
We definitely need to beat the Dallas high #... I think the most cars we had at an auto X was 8. Most competitors in one event, 5 Subys

Why don't ya'll run SM instead of ST? If you want to cherry pick it's OK.......

Cool

Hey guys I'll definitely be there!! I talked it over with Joe Deso the Solo guy in charge about which class I can run in. I ended up in TGS - G Stock/Street Tires. I've never heard of it, but I figured what the heck. This is my first Divisional, so I have no idea what to expect.
Hey Andre, it'll be nice to finally see your car ... oh yeah and to meet you too! I'm still bummed I couldn't make it to Cobb's for the opening. How was it?
I'll have to make a few calls. I think Steve may just swing by to wish us luck. Poor guy had to sit around this past Sunday and play cheerleader. He's dying to get his tranny fixed! I didn't mind being the only RS out there though. Jason, Tre', any of you guys in town this weekend?
Andre, are you and Chris going to make it to the Tech/Registration dinner Friday night? I'm not sure when Travis will get in town, so we may not be able to get down there on time. I'll see you guys Saturday!

Hey Chris, I'm glad both of you are coming down. Is she going to race too? I don't know if Stacie is going to come or not. Travis' wife, Hollie, is coming down, so that usually means a tornadic shopping spree at the local malls. I'll have to try and sweet talk her into coming out at least for a little while.
I don't know how many other Houston guys are coming. I got my confirmation about my registration on Friday. I'll be #13 in TGS. Yippee!!
I'm definitely going to be spreading the word. Any others from up North heading down besides you and Andre? See ya there!

Adam

Question

Chris, I got to thinking about your autocross settings. I ran this last event with my shocks set at 3 in front and 6 in rear. The tires were set cold at 44 in front and 38 in the rear. It felt pretty good, considering they are still the stock RE-92s. But, I wanted to get an experts' opinion. Thanks!

Thanks, Gary. Adam, as far as the settings go try 4 front 4-6 rear and 44-47 psi front 40-42 psi rear. I ran the RE-92's 20 times last year anrd that seemed to be a good starting point. I'll take a look at your car this weekend and we'll go from there.

Thumbs up

Thanks Chris, I'd appreciate any help/tips you can give me. I'm hoping Travis will make it down in time for us to get to the Registration/Tech Welcome Party on Friday night. If not, I'll see you Saturday morning!

Essentially, Chris is an expert. He finished 2nd in GS at the Nat'l Tour autox in Ft Worth.
