This is my 2011 autox thread for SMF Atlanta region
« on: March 21, 2011, 10:10:45 am »
I'm going to keep a history of my events and times in SMF.

I have a somewhat modified bseries in my 1991 si.

I haven't autoxed in a while: it seems something is always broken or I'm too lazy to get up early.

I'm going to also make at least one post per event to keep a running record of changes, trials and tribulati ons, etc.

Points #1 turner field, green lot:

The class leader was on Hankook rs3's I believe.  His best time was 49.597

I showed up on street tires: Dunlop direzza.

Setup was 15x7 (-1 offset) all around, 205/50/15.  
I got a little loose with lift off oversteer, but the car didn't feel too bad. I ended up in 2nd place. My best time was 52.472 - 2.875 seconds slower than the winner.

The beast in action:

Points #2 turner field, green lot:

This event the class leader ran a 49.443 on hankook rs3 tires.

I made some changes to run some old Hoosiers in staggered 275f 205r, with autox compound front and roadrace compound rear. I also put my rear swaybar at full stiff. (st 22mm).

I couldn't keep the rear from coming out. I didn't get a clean run all day with 2 dnf's and hitting cones on my other runs, my best time was 52.427 and I hit two cones after the finish, resulting in a penalty: that bumped my time to 56.427 and 5th place. :(  I was still 2.949 seconds behind the leader.

The irony is that the class leader had a co-driver this event. His best time was 50.427, but he hit a cone that put him in 52.427 official. I'd have tied for 2nd had I not hit a couple cones after the finish!

A couple pics from this event:

The one with the huge fender flares or the nice ass looking one with the huge duckbill and the thing-a-ma-jig in the tailpipe?

Yeah, I saw it. I dont think I got to see you run but you had some serious ass tires on it. My best time was  a 55.198 on dunlop direzza 101's. I think I could have cut more time off with more practice. The left turn after the first sweeper was one that always seemed to catch me off guard.
How about that red Miata....

It is on Sundays.  Come and race. I really thought it would be a lot more rough on the cars than it actually is. I thought it would be a lot of hard, aggressiv e shifting, but I stayed in second gear the entire race.

Even if you guys just come hang out, I'd still love to have some EF guys there. Seemed like most people had a group of friends they hung out with and I was by myself all day.

Next race is April 3rd.

Yeah we actually took an ITB Rabbit down there years ago and a lotus europa down there.

Think had more fun in the ITB Rabbit cause it was set up but could not get the full potential out of it.
