that 35r is going to kill you on the tighter lay outs. You got hooked huh?

a 10sec car is not going to work well at auto-x, but should do decently at a road coarse, as long as it's long enough for the car to stretch it's legs. tight turns will not be your friend. the stroke kit will help, but not sure how much. for instance, i make almost 200whp less than you (from what i hear; i'm at about 275-285whp) but ran a 61 second lap while taking off like a grand pa and washing out horribly in the last turn. the car DEFINITELY had a 60, if not a 59 in it had i gotten two more laps. but that's what we all say. LOL. i also need to get off my street tires...but we all say that as well. haha
anyway.. as long as the car is fun, no biggie. IMO, i'd rather have a car set up to be fast and decent on a road course and do "okay" at the auto-x track.
headbang
we didn't meet 'cause we ran separate groups. i was working yours and then had to drive. next time!

FWIW, when i had my evo.. i figured a stroker and a 30r would actually be quite fun to drive. i was gonna run a 10:1 C/R and keep it super responsive. it would have been REALLY fun, 'i'm sure. i am curious to see how yours turns out as it will be "kinda" close.

rota's and rs3's you'll be happy. I felt weird weird on the stock itr stuff and those rs3's provide more grip then i was expecting.

I'm having trouble finding reasonably priced wheels. Don't wanna pay too much, seeing how I'm a casual driver, etc. I do have some 17" types I'd like to try, though. RS3 is an amazing tire and what I would run if I could pick any street tire.

Yea coach it was a blast and that's true ill just have to do what I can lol, that's true kaj the next time I go out there I'm gunns be in my wife's 8 that's on a stock turbo it should do better than my car, a well setup stock turbo 300whp car will do great which is what were gunna do with my wife's car your car was moving man you Subaru guys don't play I was surprised at the guy launching his off the line that guys hard core lol, I want to try out a road course I just need to do the needed break upgrades so my pedal won't go soft on me, that sounds like a good setup that would do well, my wife's car has rotas on it it just needs sticky tires coach and it'll be ready to go:)

all you need is a decent pad and fluid then you are ready to go. that pads can get expensive, depending on how much speed you will be carrying and how much you want to beat up on them. i'm running Axxis pads and Super Blue fluid. no complains, though i would like steel braided lines for a better feel. there are a bunch of Thunderhill, one or two Buttonwillow, and Laguna Seca event all coming up soon, if you are interested.

Just start with hawk hp+ pads for now. should be a good pad to start on. the ct stuff starts adding up and thats a pad you would want be switching out when you get to the track because of how aggressive it will be. start small. I want to do an event that has a driving school attched to it. I dont plan on any of that non-sense stil after the weather starts to dip down. Glad you had fun.
Jason- you have no idea how shocked I was with the grip I didnt trust my car. Plus it was my first event on the stock stuff so i was re-learning the car. They claimed my last run was a dnf so I had no clean runs. I need to work on that. I will be buying Rs3's for all my comp Street tire use's. Maybe some time in 2013 I'll get some a6's.

i would like to try a "real" tire. i've always had this thing where i want to do stuff on street tires. same with drag racing: i only used drag radials. i have some Continental slicks i would like to try, though i don't think my suspension/hub assly would like them. LOL. i think the RS3s would be perfect. i'd really like to get a set of "fun" wheels/tires. as for DNFs, i had an event like that last year. i kept missing a cone at the end. i dunno what i was thinking. LOL. i'm not sure i got one sold run in. Very Happy i think i'm gonna try to make the next one, though i know i'm at a serious disadvantage due to my tires.

Well everyone I talk to says slicks should come after a good 200 treadware rating and lower. Rs3's, star specs, re-11's, and the kumho xs's. Would be a great start. Your v12's are a great tire to learn on, but if you want the higher grip level's I would start with those. Slicks mask little thing we all tend to do bad. I'll get to something like that after i have alot more events under my belt.

i wouldn't use the slicks to make me a better driver. for tun only. that is the only reason i bought them (and they were super cheap. like >$200 cheap). that's the main reason i have yet to get wheels for them. that's a lot of money for some "fun". LOL. had i been smart, i woulda applied the $200 to some RS3s. i tried to get them for the Evo, but they didn't have my size. bleh.

Yeah others get them because they want to be faster. Im not against that at all. just dont think its the right time for me to buy slicks. I've seen guys running 275's in the front on higher levels of my group (smf)

On a civic??!! Or just in the class? That's silly. I don't think I've ever run more than a 215 on a fwd car. They worked fine for me as long as you don't go crazy with your inputs at 50+ mph. Lol. I just want to get that "WEEEEEEE!" feeling. Just once.

civic and itr. They run huge front and normal size in the rear. I didnt want to run more then a 205 till I ran on those 225 rs3's. Yeah man those are guys who are at regional and national stuff. Shit I will never do. Im more like you about the weeeee factor for now. I want to get on a road coarse asap thu.

civic and itr. They run huge front and normal size in the rear. I didnt want to run more then a 205 till I ran on those 225 rs3's. Yeah man those are guys who are at regional and national stuff. Shit I will never do. Im more like you about the weeeee factor for now. I want to get on a road coarse asap thu.

I guess if they are THAT serious...lol. That was our drag setups. 225 BFG DRs up front and normal stuff put back. Dang.
Not trying to sounds negative towards auto-x (it's extremely fun), but once you do a track day, you will have a hard time justifying the cost of it. For those of us who have to pick and choose our events due to funds, $99 for 100mins of driving > $40 for 6mins. That's a lot of seat time. I only do aX because it's local. Factoring in the gas savings helps. Lol
