tukaniSVT ^^ You should look into Rotas ... they are surprisingly cheap and light.

Yeah ... and am looking forward to testing out the tires. I just got them in. But still waiting on the wheels ...

I will make a separate thread for that.

CGEO30 Really cool track. And being able to race all year, how cool is that. The 16 should help the TQ out of the corners but it will depend on the overall tire OD as compareed to the 17's. Your looking to lower the / go to a smaller OD tire. I was thinking of doing the same thing (16 to 15) but couldn't find some cheap 15 inch aluminum rims. I'll keep the 16s but look to lower the OD as much as possable. Since I race at a wide range of tracks i.e. they're never the same, gear selection is a matter of what a particular track needs. I don't like pushing the rev limiter as a normal routine item. The seat issue will work it self out. I don't see that being the 3+ seconds you needed to compeat. Good call not making an issue of it. Once you get the new tires on and a few events under your belt with the new tires, hopefully buy then the seat issue will be resolved. As you stated, the R ST time really raises an eye brow.He was really fast ????? Good luck with the new tires. I still have a few months before I can try out some new tires that I still need to buy

ahh the light weight civics from the late 80's and early 90's. thats all there is in ST at nationals. Last year i think it was 35 civics and 2 other cars. (1 subaru, 1 celica,)

tukaniSVT Front wheel drive 4 bangers really. Civics, Scions, RSXs ... etc. HP between 130-200

But it boils down to driver, suspension and tires. You can have a crazy HP car, but if it can't handle the turns and the driver doesn't gas and break at the right moments ... the results can be up and down.

I just got new Tires and lighter wheels ... so I am looking forward to the next run. Since my competition at the moment are 2 89' Civics. Light as crap and turn like no other, a good challenge.

thehubster Awesome. What kind of cars do you usually find in the ST class? i would just like to know what i may be going against some day. of course i don't that it really doesn't matter what kind of car it is cause in autocross it is really all about the driver but i would still like to know.

tukaniSVT Once you finish 2 more runs (4 total) you will be taken out of the "R" class.

And more than likely into the ST class.
