I have'nt run on stock tires in long time, but i think i started out at F:40-43 R: 36-38 you can always adjust from there. You could also ask someone at the event that's running a similar car, autocrossers are usually eager to help new racers out. it's a great atmosphere.

thanks for the advice.
i ran 42F 36R today at the palace.
considering it was my first event i think i did pretty well...
my best time was a 68.474 on a clean run.
it seemed like the course was around a minute or so. i wasn't really an out there time for the course, and considering i only have a CAI as far as performance im pleased.
