93 octane does nothing if youre not tuned for it
dont pump the tires until you get there!!
No such thing as a first timer class... Novice classes are open to drivers in their first calendar year of driving

|the-truth81||where can i find and enter into an auto-x here in ohio. just need to know how to search and sign up or the procedures to get in. typically what do the tracks charge? things like that|

Check out the autocross section, plenty of good tips there. In gereral, most people run higher tire pressures with the rear tires between 3-6 psi lower than the front.
If you can (room in the paddock to leave them), I take out the spare, the jack, the carpet cover for the spare, and the rear cover thingie out. I also fold my rear seats down (personal preference). Remove anything loose from the car as well. Things will fly around your car if you don't.
Bring masking tape to make numbers, most clubs don't allow shoe polish anymore. A check of the fluids is a good idea, I also run on an 1/8 tank of gas if possible. Bring your motorcycle helmet too, you don't want to wear a loaner if you don't have to.

Intake and rims puts you in STS class, which isn't a bad one to be in IMO. Good competition even though Civics do have an edge on you; it's a challenge.
I'm not sure about the other mods, but unless your region is overtly technical (this isn't Nationals) then they should probably just put you in STS.

I also have a Steeda SRI, and Steeda wires w/ new copper plugs for the performance part, but the STS and CFM rear engine mount will not be noticed nor affect my placement (I think?)...
I'm starting to see there's no cance for me to stay in that first timer class, huh?

the tech guys (if they know their shit) will place you in the right class. if all youve done is wheels and tiress you will be in the more stock vehicle classes.
some cars though already come in bone stock at a higher class. (things like evo's and sti's) try to avoid getting into that class.

|zantar||If you are racing on street tires I would start tire pressure at 50 front and 44 rear and then adjust. This works wonders with my setup, a slight tendency to oversteer but nothing that stomping on the go peddle can't fix.|

|RideRed0331||I was under the impression that the first timer class is to get a feel for the race, rather than speed/time. I don't even think trophies are awarded, you get a one time race as a first timer and are then placed into a class from there???|

I just find that with my setup if I go up more I get understeer.
If I go down the road rubs on the sidewall.
