    Default 9.7.08 SCCA Auto-X

    Here's some photos from today's auto-x of my car.













    Here's the entire album: http://picasaweb.google.com/neema3/AutoX9708#

    I'm uploading videos as we speak.

    I ran a 49.188

    The average time was 53.xxx and the fastest time was 43.xxx and the slowest being 1:16.xxx

    Enjoy!

    The fastest street car time went to the National Auto-X champ, Bryan Hikotter (i don't know how to spell his name) who had an MR2 turbo that he drives . Who was beaten only by a 240z race prepped car by a few tenths of a second.

    He seriously uses portals or power ups or something. He just breaks the laws of physics all together.

    I was on some shitty Road Hugger tires.

    Hard econo-tires which sucked. However, I did pull off some mad tight all-wheel drive drifts trying to go faster. The STi rear sway bar that I put on here made it very very twitchy and the rear end was stepping out a lot all over the place which I didn't really like because it made it harder to drive, but I did outrun some Evo's and WRX's today. I'm satisfied with my time, but not happy. It's my first go at auto-x in the impreza and I wasn't sure of what she was capable of until towards the end.

    I think with two more laps I could've easily gotten a 47.xxx. I severely underestimate my differentials and my car's remarkable grip despite the unremarkable tires I was on.

    With some good tires alone I think I could've pulled off a 46.xxx without breaking a sweat.

    I think my biggest problem was just my underestimation of my car. I was only utilizing like 50% of its available grip. I knew the line, I knew the techniques, but I wasn't sure about the grip and fucked up.

    However, next time, I will be sure to get in the top 10. That's my goal. I'll probably have better tires next time, and I might wash the mud off my car.

    This lap was my slowest where I actually finished. I think this was a 51.xxx or something. Anyway, it sucked I wasn't happy with it and severely underestimated my car. Too much braking, not enough throttle.

    :(

    Second run, this was my slowest run that I actually finished which was a 51.xxx. You can see why I was so slow, not enough WOT.

    Third run, I severely ****ed up and went for a third lap. You can hear how pissed off I was at the end. They didn't flag me until the very end, so whatever.

    Fourth run, my crack run. I don't know what I was doing, but I just smoked everywhere. The ****ing indicator cones at the end ****ed everything up for me, I had no idea where the finish was coming in at that angle, which explains the wiggle.

    Yeah, just have to practice more.

    Too bad the cam wasn't in-car for the final lap, looked like fun.
