Got my autocross videos!

Here is the link to my autocross event! My last run was my fastest at 54 seconds even after hitting 2 cones. It was a ton of fun! I also did this on terrible tires. I ordered new ones for the next event coming up! Placed 7th in my class Not to bad for my first time ever going! Autocross fun! - YouTube

Pretty smooth driving. After getting comfortable with how your car handles you will literally start to throw it in the corners. Then you will really start to have fun.

Glad you had a good time and you did great!
It makes you wonder why you didn't autocross before... Huh?

You need to use the WHOLE track with our cars. You were hugging the inside of those first two sweeping corners. Letting the car drift to the outside on the sweepers allows you to enter the corner faster and also to get back into the power sooner at the exit.
Dont worry, you dont need to protect the inside line... Nobody will pass you in autocross.

Nice job!

What tires are you getting?

Thanks guys! And just getting used to it. Haha. I started to catch on then it was my last run. Haha. But oh well! I'm doing it again the 29th! And thanks for the tip! I'll give that a shot. And just simple street tires (nitto nt555s) I can get a set of 4 shipped to me for 540 bucks. So that's what I'm going with!

What size? I really just want to upgrade to a taller tire in the rear (295/40-18 or a 305/40-18)

I'm going with 275/40/17 all the way around. Just stock tire size for the wheels I have. It's cheap and I can rotate them if I need to
