Personally, I prefer being able to pick the heat I run in. But I see the point of running similar classes together, especially if the weather is changing throughout the day.

I was so close to catching you Chris and getting that top FS spot.

Sorry, had to. Smiley

My fastest run from today in my 2014 Subaru BRZ. This is my 3rd run from the 2nd heat and my time was 52.105.

I noticed on the June 14 entry on myautoevents.com that there are 2 event dates, June 14 and May 31. Maybe that has something to do with it. See the attached screenshot.

Hey, Travis I posted a few more from the autocross, and some of yours are there.  Hope you like them!

I've seen several threads on different car make/model forums with similar results to this after one or two weekends. The RE71R is a 200 TW tire, but appears to wear like 100.

(this is just an example, maybe only some people are wearing this fast???, i am not a tire expert Smiley )

Thank you! They look great so far. Can't wait to see the rest.
12  General / Open Forum / Re: Re: Modifications allowed in a class on: April 20, 2015, 04:41:07 PM
Tires and wheels- pick up a set of Bridgestone RE71R's in a size recommended for your stock wheels or 15" if legal for your car.
If you plan to use the same tires for autox and daily driving you may want to skip the RE71R. They are a new tire this year and people are finding that they wear extremely fast. But they do seem to be one of the fastest tires.
And like he said: tires and alignment are the best start. After seat time, that is.

Here are a couple links to get you in the right direction.

SCCA Street Rules - if it doesn't specifically say you can do something, then you can't do it.
http://scca.cdn.racersites.com/prod/assets/2015-3-31%20section%2013%20street%20category%20online.pdf

Miata.net - best community for all things Miata - this is the autocross / racing section with several ES threads on just the first page
http://forum.miata.net/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=13

Hope that helps.

My spin in my final run - sorry workers for punting so many cones.
I was in the car directly behind you getting ready to go. The starter said "Oh! Might as well relax for a while."
Smiley All good.

We have an autocross school coming up on May 30th. I bet you could get plenty of help there.

Thanks for the quick post and thank you for the individual files.

I was in the 3rd heat today in my BRZ and my fastest run was my first (65 seconds) as the rain started coming down before my second run. My 2nd would have been 1 second faster if I hadn't taken out a cone.  In the 3rd run I lost 7 seconds as the course was very slippery but also very fun.

Run 1- https://youtu.be/p5qMxj0R5RM
Run 2- https://youtu.be/iIWgC6W2rcU cone at 53 seconds
Run 3- http://youtu.be/Wn38dU642GU slippery Smiley

The 4th run I decided to turn traction control back on and put it in sport mode and the nannies were kicking in constantly and my time was very close to my 3rd run. I just wanted to compare the modes and I'll probably leave everything off next time it rains.

Beth - the video quality looked good and consistent when I just watched it. Must have been a youtube thing when you were watching.

I believe PAX will be calculated on the total score from the judges.

This is important for the the stretched tires, I missed it the first time I read the rules. "tires are required to have higher than ambient air pressure when the score is assigned"

been a while since I've been on, here are the pics I took during what I think was the 2nd heat? heat before the red CSP Miata and the green FP Porsche came out to play, I know that much:

Thank you. I saw several nice pics of my car in the 3rd heat.

Here is a spreadsheet I made based on the PDF above.
23  Results / Autocross / Re: Results 29 March 2015 on: March 30, 2015, 08:57:36 AM
Ben,
Your fastest clean run was 43.861 and your Miata is in class ES. Each class has a PAX, or factor, that is used to equalize the cars. So you can almost say, that if everyone had the same car, what would everyone's time be in that car?

The PAX for ES is 0.808.

43.861 x 0.838 = 35.439.

Edit:
the +.303 is the time between you and the person who finished just in front of you.

Hey Mike,

Every 5k should be ok on our engine. I've been getting used oil analysis done since I got the car just to keep an eye on the wear rate of everything. You can see my 3rd UOA here - http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2060327#post2060327 , along with a bunch of others as well.
The lab suggested I could try 7500 next time, but I am rounding all maintenance down to keep everything at 5k intervals.

Thanks, James. Is it possible to get the raw data? I like wasting time playing with spreadsheets too much and the PDF is not very easy to extract the data from. Smiley
