BFG is the go to for CAM. That said, they will overheat on track fairly easily but the only autocross tire I've driven on that works more than 1-2 laps on track is the Yokohoma A052.
I find the a7 works well on tracks.. lol.

Did anything ever pan out with Santa Anita? I'm thinking since their horse racing events are now in question, they might be REALLY amenable to renting their lots out.
They seemed to be overwhelmed with their situation. Mike keeps up communications but isnt getting much in return.

It is not, currently they are building more hangers, so that area isnt being rented anymore.

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Awesome thank you Anthony! I am a total beginner, I have never run autocross before, so I should probably go into the class that is best for a novice. I don't plan on any other modifications for now. I would reccommend California to street touring "CST" since it's a great group and usually quite la...

Removal of windows puts it outside sp, along with any interior removal beyond what's needed to cut out around a cage.

Re: May 5th Course Feedback! Nice Job....

Commentary: The people chalking the boxes felt a bit abused when they heard that we almost used all the cones in the trailer. Also, not sure if this was changeable layout wise, but we were one left hand turn shy of being a nascar course on Sunday. i.e. all right hand turns. Next time, if the layout...

I would look for a shop that sells used tires. Since they typically look to service a less expensive target market.

It's a great place to start and from there you can learn more about the sport and which class sounds like fun. For national level classing you would...

Depends. I reccommend California street touring and some hand shakes with fellow competitors, it's easier when the car is there when they are modified.

Well done Anthony. I assume you design for Sunday, then make adjustments to make it work for Saturday. Most of us will start with an idea for Sunday in mind and then will re-tool the start/finish sectors. If your design has good flow, then it should work well enough in reverse with simple visual ch...

Re: Would you like to instruct as your work assignment? - 3/3

This position also allows you to take your AVERAGE from your yearly points. You dont need to lose class/pax points to instruct!

This allowance however can only be used once per year per instructor.
