1st autocross in 200sx!
« on: 11:41:46 AM / 09-May-06 »
So, I finally did it.  I got to an auto-x, and let me tell you, it was kinda ugly.  :wink:   I didn\'t represent the S12 community all that great, but I did beat a \'92 Civic w/ a CTR engine/tranny combo and a stripped interior.
so, the pics:





The Civic I beat:

That\'s all the good \'uns.  If I feel up to it, I\'ll put some more up later :wink:

EDIT:  my first thread w/ working pics... WoOt!

Awesome, good to see others getting into it. My first race is coming up on May 21st. I am pretty excited to see how I run in comparison to what I did last year.

Nice, it looks like alot of fun  :cool:.

I want to try it, but you have to be 18 around here to autocross. November needs to hurry up and come around again  :biggrin:.

Thanks guys.

For reference, I was running Class 1 which should be more or less the same in the SCCA.  I\'m siked.  19 days.  

I\'m so dedicated that I\'m gonna do an auto-x 1hr from my house, finish around 5, and make it back for prom at like 6:30 the same day!  :eek:   Trying to get the g/f to come along, but you know how long they can take  :wink:

Again, thanks for any support/comments.

sweet man...
 
question tho, did you spin out on your first run? time is 20 seconds or so higher..
 
Good stuff, eventually im gonna get mine into autocross, but i guess if you dont have a stock exhaust (among other things), it changes your class??

A lot of things can change your classes. But if you look hard enough online you can find how scca breaks up the classes and what other cars come in what classes. Most autox clubs adopt the scca guidelines and class groupings to. But imho the s12 is an good autox platform with a lot of potential...other people may disagree with that...but its my opinion, so blah!

  haha me modding would be a disaster.....Id get all power hungry and  demand n00dz from everyone. Then make all the canadian s12er's come here  and massage my feet and make me jello pudding.

Actually....mod powers plz?!?!?!  0:)

Tedious?  This coming from a person who uses the word twice in a sentence?  I laughed repeatedly...

I think Paul would agree with that statement.  After installing the polyurethane bushings in my XE, the car is handling like a champ.

My first run I messed up my first run, and took an instructor out om my second just to learn the course and get a feel of the car.  That\'s why it\'s so slow.  I may be going to another this sunday, and I may not be goin to prom so that\'s another FULL event for me!  :biggrin:
