Slow down, have fun, don't worry about getting a super fast time, worry about your skills, then works about kicking ass. Having fun is what's most important though.

As for the bushings, I installed offset Powerflex bushings, but I haven't auto-x'd my car yet with them. I'll let you know, I know I have more caster now though, it's a lot more noticable when I turn the wheel to the locks.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."

Does anyone know if the auto-x courses can be viewed before the date we participate in the actual Auto-x? I want to look over the course and get a good feel of how the course is run. Rather than just the few min they give you to walk the course before the actual run.

Think of autocrossing similar to Downhill ski racing. You're only allowed to sideslip the course (i.e. slide sideways down the hill observing the course but not running it). That's the trick of autocross and it gives more competition. It's also similar to rally racing minus the navigator. They don't even get a chance to run the course and rely on notes from the navigator.

I always worry too much about hitting the pilons therefore I often take it caution inbetween pilons on each side, scrubbing unecessary speed off. That's what I need to improve on.
