SASC Events / Re: Two day (3 set) Fat Kat scores for August 13, 2017
« on: August 16, 2017, 12:42:29 PM »
One of the most exciting afternoons I've had racing.  Thanks to everyone for the chance to run in an event like this.


Beyond the challenge portion... I actually quite enjoyed running on the same course all weekend.  Although I only found a little more than an extra tenth after the first session of runs, I did appreciate the opportunity to shift and adjust my driving slightly to find more consistency.

I've seen a 245/40/17 on a 17x7 wheel before.

I did this once, but every set since has been 225/45.

Looks to me like team four got ripped off though.  We excluded their fastest guy NOT THEIR SLOWEST!

Thanks Reijo,

I'm not sure what my expectation was, but I found the night pretty fast paced.  I would have appreciated some more time to consult with other drivers, maybe swap cars and do some ride alongs.

I think for that to happen, we'd need some more time, or smaller numbers.

I got seven runs on the practice courses, which I took entirely on the non-slalom course.  I was playing with lines on two really tight pinches on that course and trying to learn something.  Not sure I did, given inconsistency in my driving elsewhere.  I would have liked a chance to see it riding passenger in someone else's car (one or two people in particular) but didn't get a chance to do that.

I still had fun, and did at least really get some good practice on 2 to 1 downshifting.  :)

As Murray said, the bolt must be an OEM part.

The PN's referenced in your image, are valid Toyota part numbers...

  • Much more camber thanks to class-legal camber bolts. I ran -2.6 degrees in front on mine, which is a huge amount for a Street-class car. I don't even think I was at the limit of adjustment.
Well that's something to be jealous about!  :o

It's still early, but Mr. Hemming looking pretty smart right now with Dan Bullis and Ryan 1-2 in BS and 1-2 in PAX overall.

Murray is holding a trophy spot in CS!

Only two heats in so far, so more to come.  Chris and Tom are running as I write in SSP.

Watch out for wind!  Those things blow away, dent cars, get all twisted up. 

This.  Definitely want something solid to tie it too.

At the request of the original poster I've locked this topic.  The club executive will discuss further.

Those with more to add might consider attending our monthly club meetings.

From the looks of it though, it seems like I would fare better in the autoX environment if I have a RSX-S with 0.786 PAX vs a Celica with 0.793.

Not necessarily.  The RSX has never been a great autox car.  The Celica does a few things better despite not having a K20.  Whether the Celica does them better than the current class kings is another matter, but I think it's worth trying.  If you are a student of driving, and come on the right tire, I think you will find meaningful competition.

I don't have any input on the legality of those kits, but did want to point out that a) the Celica GT-S is classed in GS, not HS, and b) some nutcase from Seattle brought out a GT-S one year claiming it was faster, and the next year the defending national champion swapped his GT for a GT-S and declared his agreement with the nutty Seattleite. 🙂

Ha!  Well there.

Took a look at the rules for street class cars already, but just want to make sure with the longer-standing guys here. I have plans to obtain a 2000-05 Celica GTS for autocross. Would there be any issues with running a 00-03 TRD package/04-05 Tsunami edition within H street?

These packages include a body kit (my main question regarding H street compliance) and suede seats but these would be considered options offered by original manufacturer. Similarly, if I have a non factory kitted GTS, would I be ok putting the TRD/Tsunami suede seats in it?

I don't believe the GT-S was ever offered with either the TRD or Tsunami package body parts, so unfortunately, fitting them to a GT-S takes you out of Street class... and maybe even straight out of Street Touring.  You might however be able to make an argument that the seat swap falls inside the "comfort and convenience" rule allowances with Street class.

On a side note, I think results a decade ago demonstrated that the GT was actually the faster auto-x car in many cases, with more usable torque and a longer second gear.

As for the classing, I say build it and figure it out later.

As long as it can run somewhere!  Would definitely be wonderful to see.
