anyone else autox???

So I've been autocrossing my mach 1 the past couple weekends and I've got another event tomorrow. I'm just doing it for fun. Anyone else autox? I'm wondering what you guys run for tire pressures. Some of the guys run upwards of 45psi. Sofar I've only used the stock 32. I love the quarter but there is something fun about a good autox

I auto cross a few times a year and plan on going again in May. I go up to 41lbs on my front tires to help turn in. How much camber are you running?

Just stock. Only had the car 5 months and it doesn't need an alignment. Ill be keeping it flat because Its a DD... I feel like the car needs a strut tower brace and a set of rear control arms bad.

Enjoy your Mach. I would probably pass on the strut tower brace and go with subframe connectors instead. Strut tower braces to far less than subframe connectors when it comes to chassis stiffening. But strut braces sure do look nice. Are you seeing your times get better with experience?

A little yeah. I've probably got 100 hours of road course and I'm punching above my class in auto x. The mach has subframe connectors stock. But there are stiffer out there. It just doesn't tuck into tye corners

Just wanted to add that I run 1.5 degrees of negative camber on my daily driven Bullitt and my tires are wearing perfectly even. Since I increased the camber I'm much more competitive at auto crosses.

I've done a few open track events. I set my tires at 5 psi above street so around 37 psi for me. Worked pretty well. Bet that evo guy was pissed lol
