I'm going to try my first RallyX in June - not in my SVT though.
I'm sharing a Neon with someone in my local club.

All I know so far is:
- Your time is a total of all runs, so you can't have any throw-away runs (not sure how they handle DNF'd runs, probably a big time penalty)
- From the videos I've seen, things can get really dusty, so you'd better know your course well (I read if you can't go through the course in your head, you need to walk again, not bad AX advice either)
- Another thing I've read is to vary your position on the start so you don't dig deeper and deeper ruts with every run.

Hope someone with experience will jump in and help me be ready too!

I'll post links to the club videos when I can find them again.
