Every time I've autocrossed I've been able to drop the top. It actaully helps a bit by throwing some weight over the rear wheels.

BTW I can't believe I ran into you today! It was great seeing you one last time before I took off!

Yeah I figured top down wouldn't be a problem but I have no knowledge of it since I've never actually seen a vert autox's when I've gone...

definitely dude good bumping into you yesterday & having small chat...

Trackdays

TRACKDAYS

Well Track Season is just about here!

Who's doing what & w/which organization, I'm currently waitlisted for 5/6 @ Pocono North w/ ACNA and I'm about to pull the trigger on May 30/31 @ Watkins Glen w/ Phoenix CMR

So lets hear it guys, lets get out and really enjoy our cars potential in a safe track environment w/out the risk of getting tickets ect ect

p.s. Request thread Title change to TrackDays/Auto X's in NY/NJ area so don't get confused...

I'll be at a bunch of trackdays again this year, as usual.

Don't bother with Pocono North...It blows. If they have the "FUSA" course (aka Full Course) than maybe do that.

Watkins = Great.
NJMP = Ok
LimeRock = FUN
VIR = Awesome


Autocross...Meh. :eek:hwell:

I agree Pocono North blows but for $160 just to get out there & get the cobwebs off its a bargain...fusa is definitely better I've done 3 trackdays on the bikes on FUSA layout.

Glen I'll be there end of May

I'm dying to get to Lime/VIR but schedule is always blocking me from going

Mike which organization do you run w/? any specific dates your going?

Yeah, $160 isn't bad for a day at the track...

I'm a 'whore' - I'll run with whoever fits into my schedule. SCDA, HOD, Chin, Auid Club, PCA, TT4C, etc, etc...The only group I try and stay away from is PDA since you get the least amount of track time with them.

I agree w/ your comment regarding PDA, I guess b/c most of their events include Races...yeah I'm not trying to be loyal to any group, wish more held days on weekends but I guess cost would go up and most tracks hold actual races/events on weekends

Yep. You nailed it...PDA runs FIVE groups, AND a race!!!! You're lucky to see the track for ~1 hour in an 8 hour day. F that.

Although, if you want to try LimeRock, PDA does 1/2 days on Saturdays - Upper level run groups only. You'll get 3 or 4 20 minute sessions.

If you've never run LimeRock, it's worth a shot..And they just repaved it about a year ago, so the surface is MINT!!!

Some old crappy Canon MiniDV. It's done ALOT of miles with me on the track, and never let me down.
nice thinking about getting one of these for track duty/runs


I have one of these that I use for Mountain Biking/ATV riding (I have hardwire to connect to battery) but need to figure out where to put the main unit so its not rolling around car since it can become a projectile & not allowed to have anything in the car while on track
