Dude... Am I the only hardcore autocrosser here?

This forum is dead. Which is a bummer 'cause I really like autocross and it'd be fun to swap driving tips and stuff. Anybody? Anybody at all?

Re: Dude... Am I the only hardcore autocrosser here?

I haven't had the time this summer or the tires. Once I get some stuff settling down I'm gonna start hitting it again. I have one coming up next month I might make, and one in september I know I'm running at.

That's the way it is in the Quad Cities. Parking lots, air ports.... It's a blast.

Re: Dude... Am I the only hardcore autocrosser here?

I just bought a car for this purpose , a 94 stang with the 3.8 . Someone did the springs and sway bars already and it has a k&n filter , duel exaust without cats, car sounds good motor seems solid ,car handles great!
BUT, I have a big problem ,
I have a major hesitation off idle ,
I have changed plugs and oil ( things I do when I buy a used car anyway)
cleaned the mas then swapped it with another ( a buddy owns a wrecking yard)
swaped the maf
swaped the air idle dealy
swapped plug wires
checked base timing (dead on )
swapped coil pack
cleaned throtle body
It sure feels like timing and I wonder if someone has installed a cam or timing cain and installed it one tooth out ( as a mechanic i have seen it done before)2:
any suggestions befor I tear it apart?
