Autocross Feb 2012

this is the first Autocross of the year, here are 2 videos of my son racing my Alero. no videos of me this time. she is running good, new suspension with H&R springs is working well, i had to cut 1 link out of the rear spring to level the car. my fastest time 46.3 clean. weather is supposed to be horrible tomorrow so we will see what happens sorry, about the wind noise.

Wow, I think that's cool that your family is involved in the racing. Why did it become unlevel? Ha, I think my car would roll trying the first turn on that course. What are you allowed as far as tire sizes?

What kind of wing do you have on the car? It looks really good! I'm not typiclly a fan of changing factory wings, but I may think about that. Flows really well

I absolutely love watching the in-car vids you have?
What do you do for shifting? You always seem to be in the right gear.

H&R springs tend to rake the car like a 70s hotrod so i cut a link out of the rear spring to level the car. i had intrax before.

woke up this morning pouring rain, so we decided to forgo todays race, yesterday was a good day, my son ran 1 .3 seconds slower than me. the new front tires are awesome, TOYO R1R. next month will be better.
