Here's the info for anyone who might be interested.
August 13th at Lordstown High School in Lordstown, Ohio. Sponsored by the ASCC (Akron region). I'm planning on going and it'll be my first one. They had one there already on July 16th, but of course, I spent the whole day at work and didn't get to make it. Any other info can be found at their website (www.autox.net).
Soooooooo, anyone else want to attend with me? Brian, I know you should for sure, in the hatch of course [thumb]

I'll be there, depending on what may happen I may be running the ST. I may start my winter project early and start building the engine(bottom end, ported head, etc...) in the hatch[:D] I will definately be there though, it'll be sweet[thumb]

at an aut-x one time I was told, "You're not going fast enough if you don't hit cones" So just mash that pedal and steer away lol. In all honesty though, it's really not how fast you are, it's how quick you get through the cones. I'll probibly get my ass handed to me too, especially if I run the hatch, most of my racing lately has been at the drag strip.

Snell rating can be up to ten years old, ex: In 2005 the oldest helmet you could use was a snell 95, so for this year I'd have to say a snell 00 or newer. To be honest I'm not too hip on the snell rating system, I may have just made that number up. lol. But I'm pretty sure that's how they rate the 2000 year helmet.

i do think you're right on the snell ratings. i'll have to go shop around and see what I can find. i don't want to have to spend a fortune on a helmet.

I hear ya on that one. On a side note they usually have loaner helmets at the event so you may be able to get away with not having to rush and buy one. I know I'm gonna look around, but if I can't find a helmet I want at a decent price, I'm not just gonna buy one.

I just saw this thread. I am on call unfortunately [:(] But i'll see if i can get someone to cover for me, or atleast check on a couple of things and i 'should' be able to most of them over the phone. I really want to go and i think i just might. This will probally be the only auto-x that i go to this year and it's already sounding like a good one......
