    (2010) Autocrossers Inc Event 4/11/10

    Looking for more early season seat time to get the rust off after a long winter? Then come out and join AI @ FedEx on April 11 for the first event of AI's 2010 season. Registration is now open on at

    http://www.dlbracing.com/clubs/regis...=4251&LMID=213

    FedEx does not allow us to collect money onsite for walkups, so if you want to come, you need to register online.

    I'll be there but I don't know what car I'll be driving yet... It's either a bone stock on all-seasons '99 Civic EX in HS, my black civic in ST, maybe Jason's RSX-S in ST, or maybe Noel's Z4 in STR? I kinda want to try to win in a different class like HS and have fun throwing around a stock car. Really depends if anyone signs up in HS with R-Comps because then I won't have a shot...

    You will not want to autocross any car on all-seasons after being on ST and R's for so long. I tried to drive my car on snows at our first event, and I immediately knew I had to find another car to drive. I really think with our experience, all-seasons are no longer fun on any car.

    I just want to try and win in a different class, esp if I have a good shot at winning ST at WDCR this year... I know stock is not necessarily as fun, but I think it would be more difficult and hopefully help improve my driving. That's one of the reasons why I wanted to run a bone stock Z4 at the BMW events. It's rwd, more powerful, heavier and dosen't handle as good so it'd be a nice change and challenge... But, I can't get my hands on it for the full season...

    I'm in. It'll be the first time out in STR with my 99 Miata, and I expect to get my can handed to me.

    I decided to run my civic in ST. Even though it's only me and Jason lol. Looking forward to it. Hope the weather holds up.

    I'm debating whether I want to try to do this AI event before driving to Monticello, NY for a Monday track event.

    I'm signed up for this, but my car just had other ideas. It's out of commission at RRT until at least Monday. So I guess I either need to know what class my stock 2007 Civic hybrid fits into (only mod is a trailer hitch ), or I just try to regroup for the 17th & 18th.

    AI was fun today on the 'big' lot at Fedex. I got my video mount up and running again, so here we go!



    Overall I was pleased but I did leave a little time on the table. I believe I finished 6th in class (of about 10) but results aren't up yet. My smooth needs work.

    ^ nice. If anything I might say you need to be more agressive. What was your best time?

    Here's my video. Last run is my best with a 64.257. There are a couple places I could have improved on looking back at it and watching some others videos.

    That was my best time at 67.719. Clint blistered in a run at 63.x seconds comparatively (another e46 m3, but with more grip) and the best-in-class was a 62.8 Subie STI.

    AJ I think I want you to take a ride-along with me sometime soon if timing / course working permits. I need to start getting some more second opinions.
