Here's a link to my third, and fastest run:

It also happened to be a 56.4.  Somehow, it was 0.003 seconds faster than Chris' run Grin

Results from the 5/1 event at Meadow Event Park are posted here on MyAutoEvents.  See you all on the 15th at RIR!

Here's a video of the rear wheel of the Caprice on my last run.

Thanks to everybody who came out today, it was an excellent day.  I'm looking forward to tomorrow, the weather should be just as good.

I downloaded the times from the Practice Autocross and have posted them here on MyAutoevents.  There may be some mismatches in there if we had a computer issue and I know there were a couple cars running around with the same number for a while, so they're not official.  They should give you a good idea of where everyone was though.

We're planning on finishing around 4, but you can leave any time you like after your work assignment.

We allow Formula Fords to run, you'd be in the C Mod class.

I'd like to take a look, maybe at the next event.  Either that or PM me if there would be a good time this weekend or next weekend to take a look.  No need to unmount beforehand just for me.

There's a document titled "Your First Autocross" in the Downloads section of our site which has some good pointers in it.  The most overlooked prep item that can't always be taken care of at the event is to make sure your battery is secured with a tie down (bungee cords don't count, make sure you have a real tie down).  Most cars come from the factory with a tie down, but sometimes they are missing.

Running your stock car on street tires is the best way to learn.  The slower the car is through the course, the easier it is for you to keep up with it and really focus on driving it to 100% of its potential.  Then, if you want to modify it you will have an idea of what you want out of it (more oversteer, less oversteer, etc) which can influence what parts you put on it.

No sir, my Scion tC is completely naturally aspirated and the mods I have done to it are all dealer options (100% TRD parts) and include springs, rear sway bar, front strut tie, and an axleback exhaust.

I talked to Justin about it, and he said that it should be classified as HS.

The 05 Scion xA that was there is very tuned with a turbo and redone suspension, and that is classified as SMF

Technically dealer installed options are not the same as factory options.  I would call your car an STS car I think.  Really doesn't matter though because its all for fun anyways.

4B11AWD - I think you're right.  The rules say "Cars running in Stock Category must have been series produced with normal road touring equipment capable of being licensed for normal road use in the United States, and normally sold and delivered through the manufacturer's retail sales outlets in the United States."  So it seems like the car has to be available from the dealer for sale in that configuration, the upgrade parts have to be factory options.

Walker - sorry for the misinformation.  I'd just run STS next time, you know who you should be running close to time-wise...class doesn't matter.  Also, no one should listen to my class advice  Undecided

How old are they?  My 710s have ~30% tread left but are 2.5yrs old and are definitely rock hard, at least before applying traction treatment.  I know I'm going to have to replace them this season and really don't look forward to spending $800 on another set of tires.

Hi Chuck,

Glad you were impressed by the event.  You do not have to be a VMSC member to participate.  Registration for everyone is done through MyAutoEvents.  I do want to be clear that the 4/30 event is not a school since we don't provide instructors, but I'm sure there will be people there willing to give you a few pointers or let you ride and see what they're doing.  Hope to see you there!

I've uploaded a video of my quickest run (43.381) here on YouTube.  I didn't get one of Paul's quickest since the batteries in the camera died, but here's his second fastest (45.644).
413  Results / Autocross / 04/10/2011 Results on: April 10, 2011, 04:56:06 PM
Thanks to everyone who came out today and made it a great event.  Results have been posted here on MyAutoEvents.  Let me know if you have any corrections.

Don't forget to register for the Practice Autocross on April 30th and the "Real" Autocross on May 1st at Meadow Event Park.  The Practice Autocross is limited to 30 people to ensure everybody gets as much seat time as they can handle.

Just a tip, I find this link will display all of our events this year.  If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, click "Check All" near the bottom right side of the page then the "Add Selected Events to My Calendar" button, MyAutoEvents will automatically send you reminder emails when we have an upcoming event.
414  Events / Autocross / Re: F125 with VMSC? on: April 07, 2011, 06:43:09 PM
Yes, we do.
415  General / Technical Help / Re: C5 Z06 when to replace the dampers ? What kind ? on: March 31, 2011, 05:24:30 PM
I do have to say that the Koni's we put on Keath and Donna's Corvette sucked to adjust.  The adjustment wasn't at the tip of the rod or on the body of the shock, but was on the rod itself, just underneath the top of the dust couldn't get to it unless you cut a slot in the dust boot or didn't use the boot at all.  Even then, you needed to pull the wheel off to adjust them.
416  Events / Autocross / Re: 3/27 Autocross Canceled on: March 28, 2011, 03:16:16 PM
Thanks, Gene.  I've updated it so that field is no longer required, just leave it blank for open class.
417  Events / Autocross / 3/27 Autocross Canceled on: March 25, 2011, 08:56:34 AM
Because of the forecasted snow in Doswell for Sunday, we're canceling the 3/27 event.  Sorry for the last minute notice.  Those of you who have pre-paid will receive a credit towards the next event.  Email treasurer at vmsc dot org if you would prefer a refund.

Our next event is only a couple weeks away at RIR.  The Novice School is being held on Saturday, 4/9 followed by an autocross on 4/10.  See you there!
418  Events / Autocross / Re: Weather Policy on: March 25, 2011, 08:49:55 AM
Yes, the event has been of a few minutes ago.

We will cancel events if the conditions make it unsafe.  We do not cancel events for rain or cold weather, but will for snow or tropical-storm grade weather events.  During an event, if we experience lightning, we stop running and get all of the workers/participants out of the lot.
419  General / Classifieds / FS/FT: 14" 4x100 steelies w/sketchy tires for cheap! on: March 14, 2011, 06:35:52 PM
I've got a set of 14" steelies that were on my Civic when I got the shell.  They have tires on them with 3-6/32nds tread, but they're old and dry rotted.  I think 3 of the tires are Yokohama A550s and there is one unknown brand, all 185/65/14 IIRC.  They hold air fine.  I feel comfortable driving on them at normal speeds and on short trips...they really should be replaced.

I'd like to have $20 for them or something of similar value that is generally tasty, useful, or interesting and takes up less room than 4 wheels and tires.  My bar is pretty low, I really just want these gone.  PM me or post if you're interested.
420  Events / Autocross / Re: Helmets for 2011 on: March 12, 2011, 04:43:30 AM
You're correct.
421  Events / Other Events / Re: Driftwater- Very Affordable Seat time!! on: March 02, 2011, 09:44:13 AM
I would totally be going to this if it didn't conflict with our first autocross.
422  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day! on: February 09, 2011, 09:49:31 AM
I'm planning on being there.  Don't know at this point that I'll dyno anything though.
423  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dyno Day! on: February 07, 2011, 04:23:01 PM
I'll be there with the prelude.

Do you know if there is any one there who can do a tune on a hondata setup?

I'd call them up and ask.  They specialize in American cars, but I've definitely seen a 4th gen Supra in there as well.
424  Events / Other Events / Re: 2010 VMSC annual banquet on: February 01, 2011, 05:44:09 PM
Just a reminder, get your payments in this week.  While we accept payments later it helps us get an accurate count ahead of time if you can get them in this week.

See you on the 12th.
425  Events / Other Events / THSCC/TZC HPDE at VIR April 2-3 on: January 08, 2011, 08:22:16 PM
Thought I'd post up the info for an HPDE I registered for.  It's put on by Tarheel Sports Car Club and Triangle Z, info can be found here on  It's on Sat April 2nd and Sunday April 3rd.  You can expect 3 hours of instructed track time plus classroom instruction.  I've run with these guys before and had a blast.  It'd be great to get a group of people together to go, sign up or reach out if you're interested.
