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.

Hey everyone,

We have 6 drivers coming in from Winnipeg, I can assure you we don't bite, we are not super serious competitors just a bunch of Winnipeg guys who enjoy autocross and having fun with cars. Hope to meet and learn from the SASC/CSCC.

Favour to ask, one of our drivers just got his S2000 aligned and ride height adjusted this week but suspects the shop incorrectly lowered the front coilovers and might run into clearance issues on course. If anyone could bring universal coilover spanners it would be greatly appreciated.

I'll throw one in my box - #93 FRS.

I sent an email off to Nexen to ask a few questions,
I guess not cooling them down proper, 2 drivers and short cool down times, and pushing to the limit for what we drive I'm sure is the culprits but hey its not exactly F1 prepped track we drive on lol

I am curious to the G's and if they will stand up a little better.

For the money I put into this sport and the laughs, fun, smiles and watching greg on my heels I dont mind the price!!
Wow.  This was on the burgundy coloured hatchback? Three autox events in?  Doesn't seem acceptable to me.

Another article by Vivek:

I really like this one, since it describes my biggest flaw these days (smooth, but insufficiently aggressive).

I'm not sure that is your biggest flaw.   ;D

The post is really really good though.

I've changed wheel size, so would like to make space in the garage by selling my auto-x wheels from last year.

Set of four...

Motegi Traklite
17 7J +45
5H PCD100 with 73mm hub bore, although I have Subaru 56.1mm hubcentric spacers fit.
Wheels are in great shape and were only put on the car for events.  No rash or bends... practically as new condition.

Tires are 225/45 Bridgestone RE-71R with about 7 events on them.  They were flipped on the wheels at the end of last year, so they should have more than a few events left in them.  Stored over winter indoors.

$1200 obo.
PM please.

My Dad mentioned to me that he's had a few recent inquiries on magnets.

There are a variety of options out there, but for those interested in comparing pricing, for 2017 he can do a pair of two digit numbers (8") and class lettering (4") for...
  • $45 - single colour gloss
  • $60 - single colour flourescent

Custom multi-colour, or upsizing is available at additional cost. Payment by visa or master card.

An SASC membership will cover you on both fronts... or visa-versa.

A little note on said car:

Seems a bit scary as a Twin driver.

I don't think there are any real regulations in that regard... at least not in the same way as solo 2.

I'm not familiar with the Match Tour format, but of note to me is that DS beat every street class except for A.

Hi all. 

The recent forum down time was caused by some unexpected problems with the server/host. Thanks for your patience.  Hopefully everything is back up and running as it should now.  If not I will be working to resolve.
