Well frankly the only thing else I have to do on sundays is watch F1, and I have TiVo for that. Anyway, the tightness of the course depends on your region. If your club happens to have access to a football field parking lot you can do pretty good. Both DC's SCCA and NYC's NASA have some very open courses. I seem to remember NASA out in oakland had a pretty big lot too, but thats been a while.dickedup said:
Two major concerns is that some are'nt too keen on having to coordinate their free time....an entire Sunday afternoon for instance. The other, and a point I found to be irksome, is that these courses tend to be VERY tight.

Idunno where you've run, but here in Dallas, I use 3rd gear a lot in my Europa. Our courses are anything but tight.The other, and a point I found to be irksome, is that these courses tend to be VERY tight.
Sounds to me like your autox experience was acquired in the 1970s. There are quite a few current "heavyweights" that do very well in autox, including C4 and C5 Corvettes, GM F-bodies, and certain Porkshe models.Not that much of an issue for lightweights such as a TR-3 or an Elyse,
Given that 944s and 924Ss ran at the very top of their class in National events in the 1990s (when they were still being manufactured and shortly thereafter), I've gotta call BS on that. A 968 with M030 suspension is still a possible major contender in next year's B Stock.but a real pain for heavier vehicles which typically can't reach their optimal performance envelopes.
Both my 944's ( one turbo ), were classic examples.
If that's all you do, you'll have your ass handed to you, and it won't be because of your car.Maybe try it once for the hell of it?
So, lemme get this straight: you were beating everyone so badly it got boring? Dang, I can tell you're good. Why don't you come to a Texas Region SCCA autocross next season and give us a demonstration?dickedup said:That would be the mid-eighties amigo. Tried a few events in Austin and San Antonio, was bored,

From what I'm reading Randy, these Aoto-X courses have become much longer than those I tried back in the mid-eighties.
What was the name of that kart track you loved so much out in Beaumont, California?
