Hey everybody,
Hope everyone had a good off season and has been able to get those nice new mods on the car. Anyhow Shane and I have a pretty good course for Sunday but I'm looking for some suggestions for Saturday.
I wanted to put a skid pad in but if my memory serves me correctly folks didn't really like it. So suggestions are welcome. So i'm thinking Saturdays course will be pretty simple. may have a cross over at the skinny end of the lot, Slalom. Will probably be about 35 seconds long.

edit
maybe something like this one.

Skidpads are the worst, don't do it.  While the one in the video didn't look too bad, I cant help but think just turning to the finish there would of been better

Skidpads are great as a stand alone tuning tool, but in the middle of the course they tend to be boring and kill the pace.

My two cent.

Point taken.

Skidpads and slaloms are great tuning tools for a test & tune... this is a practice autocross so just set up a simple course with a few different elements.  Sometimes, it's easier to set up part of Sundays course and have everybody rut it backwards?

Kinda off topic. I was hitting the registration button on this site and it kept directing me to myautoevents.com. Very confusing as the event in a couple of weeks is not listed there. Link/button needs to be changed.
