I know a lot of you have been waiting very patiently, and I'm sorry it's so last minute, I was hoping for a miracle that didn't happen. Our first event will be at MDS, same location as last year for the first event. I'm working on a different deal with another location and will post if and when I get confirmation for moving the event. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience. I hope to see you all out at our first event on Sunday at 10am!!!

Cheers,
John

That Craz azn is correct, 2010 SCCA PAX rules are what we're using for car classification. I'll have a copy at the Autocross if anyone wants to parouse it, or check on the SCCA website.

Braking in new brakes?? They only need from your house to the autocross location to bed them in, then you're all good to go. You should participate, I'll tell you, you'll be sorry you didn't. :cool:

The instructions that came with the rotors said to take it easy for the first couple hundred km's (I'm guessing to wear off the protective coating/zinc coating). Believe me, I wanna participate, for sure at the next one ;)

i know. for the corrado. btw, why in the world do you carry that part for a corrado anyway? i mean it was good for them but it seems quite random.

Part of the challange is remembering where to go!!

Had a hoot in the new car. Wanted to get a feel for it and how it would handle under heavy braking and tight cornering. So not used to a stock suspension and leaning through corners. Definatly looking forward to the next one and concentrating more on my times!

Too bad you weren't in the car for the 360 burnout in the hairpin!*rockout* Although you wouldn't have liked how close I came to the Praxiar tank. Aparently a 360 knocks 5 seconds off your time:cool:. I haven't done an auto-x yet where I haven't spun, drifted, or lost control all together in that back corner around the light standard! Once I learn how to drive I might actually stand a chance down there. All in a days fun.

Exactly... three straight aways, and a loop in both directions.:idea:

On the topic of course difficulty, after a few years off I was able to make confident sense of 95% of it with one slow run and John navigating. They used to be a lot more confusing, I'd say; you guys are doing a great job. Will be interesting to see what happens if/when a new venue is secured.

How was the BBQ?

Dissembler
04-12-2010, 08:33 PM
I was late so I missed the walk around, had no idea where to go the first run lol. But after watching the cars its pretty easy to pick up where to go after that, except for that one gate on the left after you finish the loop the second time, that one messed me up every time :(

The barbeque was good, Rich did a great job cooking, except for the bit where he tried to smoke us all out lol ;)

Giles demonstration of injectors was cool, conveniently he had a set that came off M20s and NV M50s (i think). It was cool watching them at 12000 rpm. However, I now realize that the M20 injectors dont atomize very well at all, so just when I thought I was done spending money...

Hi all, I'm glad to hear all of you had such a great time. In regards to the course layout, by the end, all of you had it figured out, and were pulling some decent times. A BIG thing with autocrosses is being able to learn the course asap. That's the challenge. More attention should be paid for the walkthru, (unless you miss it Graeme) and get rides with others first, and watch as much as you can to learn it. This was one of the simplest layouts I've done, (just a heads up). If you make the course too easy, the experienced guys will just be posting ridiculously fast times right off of the get go, and the runs will be too short.

Cheers. *wave*

Hey Sam, don't worry you were there in spirit, especially helping out a few esteemed members that broke their tricycle. So it's all good, and we should see you on the 16th of May, which is our next event. Don't forget we'll also be at Mosport on the 25th of April, then again at Mosport on the 1st and 2nd if you want to get in on some action.

i'm going to be at a conference in niagara on the lake from the firday until sunday and i'm not sure when it ends. so depending on traffic i'm guessing a 1.5-2 hour drive to vaughan and i'm not leaving at 8AM so that means i'll be late. :)

LOL. I've gone through six VW's, 4 of which were mkII's. Love those cars, but never again. My comment on owning one of those is, as good as they are, they are nothing compared to an e30 and so why bother with a VW, when you can get an e30?? Also all newer VW's/Audi's = FAIL. Wrong wheel drive, or worse awd ftl. Not to mention repare costs on my mk4 1.8t are retarded. My previous e36 328 cost way less to insure, repair and fuel. Not for a long time will I buy another VW.

I had fun at the time, I guess that's what mattered most.

No one gets the courses in advance. That's part of the challange. Pay close attention in the walk through. Get rides with others marshal and watch others when they run. Best tips I can give. Alot of us were off course for a the first one. The more u do the better you get. We were all rusty at the first one.
Oh and do the first one or two slow to get down the course then start speeding up!! Your best of the 5 runs count use a few for practice

LSD should make a notable difference, helping you get the power down out of the turns and helping rotate the car! Good show, and hells yeah, bring the filming equipment, I'd love to see some good quality action videos!

Important part is Mark is ok, pride might be bruised a little but this is what can happen when we push our cars to the limits, and thankfully he is smart enough to do it in a controlled event and not on the street where others could have been involved.

Hopefully the frame rails are strait, the A pillers seemed ok so should be repairable

I'm sure it will be back better then ever before you know it. Rough end to an otherwise wicked day, again cars can be fixed or replaced, people can't and glad Mark is ok, looking forward to a good rebuild thread and seeing you back out!!

NONE, both of them were over 50ft away from anyone. Seriously why would you say something like that, the autocross racing is a respectable fourm of racing where we get to push our cars to their handling limits, legaly.

What you said makes it sound like its unsafe, and reckless, which couldn't be farther from the truth!

This is motorsports racing and we take the risks, like a contact sport, this ain't soccer!!!!

Strip what ever you can yourself off the front, ie hood and bumper, pull the rad, and get a good look. There are various ways you can measure the front end up and see how close you are.

you'll feel alot better with the damaged peices off the car, and if you don't do it yourself and bring it somewhere, they can't make you feel bad about it!

Shoutouts to the E30 guys, we all went really quick yesterday, representing the chassis well against the newer and more capable machinery there!

Thanks Mike for propping the camera on my car for a run, I hope it turns out well! Good driving too BTW, forgot to mention, you looked super smooth out on course.

Mark, hope you get the car going soon... If you get the frame rail pulled out, the rest should be piece of cake for you to do yourself so you save a bit of coin. We've all been there once before, shit happens man. Everything works out in the end.

Ahhh. Prophetic. As much as I love E30's Scott, I've had that car since 1999. Lots of blood, sweat and tears into that thing. I'd want to save it if I can. Going to strip all the damaged parts off it, and maybe get the frame checked out. If she's still straight, then I'm going to bolt her back together with some good used parts.

Maybe someday I'll find my way into an E30.

it's easy to find just mapquest the address at the beginning of the thread.

Club members pay $20, but you can do it once as a non member for $25. Most who do it once are hooked so might just want to get your membership($57.75) for a year. If someone comes with you yes you can both run the same car, but both pay to race.

You don't need a hand brake to run, it's actually best not to engage the hand brake after a hard run anyway as your brakes could be very hot
You can drive out with me but I have to be there a little early to set up cause John is outa town this weekend.
