Don't worry! Yes, unless you're more talented than most of us, you'll get your behind kicked badly the first couple of times. I lost about 10s on top drivers with similar cars in my first auto-x. But if you go with realistic expectations, and your ego doesn't get bruised too easily, that shouldn't be a problem. It's best if you don't put yourself under pressure, just go out, drive, and have fun. The rest will come as you gain experience. This is a difficult sport, and there's only one way to get good at it: practice, practice, practice!Odog said:The one thing that is keeping me away is looking like a fool.
Often going the wrong way is a problem with the course design, not you. Not always. But often.zvezdah1 said:I tried autocrossing at a couple LOGs.
I must have a defective gene, for the life of me I could not conceptualize the route to take and invariably went the wrong way every run!
Chris who's not necessarily stupid but perhaps has some unknown brain defect.
I was thinking of mentioning that too.ConeFusion said:I wanted to say this in my previous post, before I got carried away again: Driving the Legacy initially might not be a bad idea. It's going to be more forgiving than the S2000, and you won't have the (perceived) pressure of driving a fast car. And only cool people drive Subarus!
Depends on the region and how they do things.banTT0r said:Randy (I ask u this cuz u r the godfather)
in a typical autoX day how long do u get to drive, and how much sitting around waiting is there?
Highly recommend AutoXing or also know as Solo...in the 15 years I have been AutoXing the only 'damage' to any of my cars was getting a cone wedged inside the fender well (boy did I nail that sucker )Odog said:Looks like I should've done a search first. We both have S2000s and we both want to autocross. I think that I might take the advice from the other thread and autocross with my S2000. The tires are not good anyway and will need to be replaced soon. Mind as well destroy them first
Now, does anyone in the DC/VA/MD area autocross?
