Have you checked out DG's page before, it is some of the best technical autox info out there.
http://farnorthracing.com/autocross_secrets.html
I go back and read the page once a month or so.

well i have a 26 point lead in my class heading down the home stretch of the season.. i think we have 6 events left? so hopefully i can hold him off. he's a DAMN good driver though..

i also have a good chance of winning rookie of the year. or at the very least worker of the year LOL.

i helped set the course on saturday for our race on sunday, i must say, if you guys have never set a course it is a MUST. try to set with an experienced driver. then you get there perspective on racing and lines. this info was outstanding!

Short/tight course, or open/fast course?

Short/tight = ZX3
Open/fast = SVT

Are both cars in ST, or what class are you in?

It's going to be about a 60-70 second course
so it's longer, BUT there are a lot of elements.
if i could post a pdf you could see for yourself...

yeah, both cars are in ST
