  • Fun animated GIF- My buddies first time autoxing a RWD



    We had our first event of the year and a good friend of mine needed a ride because his SVT Focus was busted. He had never autoxed a RWD car before.

          Can you slow down the image just a bit? While it was loading I got to see it in slow motion and it looked much cooler then in fast motion.

              I used to run STX with my RSX Type S and it was hard keeping up with the wrxs. It was at 200 whp and pretty quick. I could outbrake and hold more speed in turns than them but they had me on power & they were able to put it down well. How well does the 240 respond to the power mods like exhaust, intake and pulleys etc? Do you have a hard time keeping up with the WRXs?

                This is my FIRST event in the S14 so I don't have anything to measure by, yet. STX locally is kinda weak, 2 JCW Mini's and other assorted cars that show up. There was a guy there who does national level events in his 328 BMW that was seriously stupid fast, he completely destroyed me. I am still sorting the setup out (my alignment was completely wacked), so I know there is time to be had.

                As far as power, its nothing special, it dynoed at 162/163 back in January. It seems like a freaking rocketship compared to my last car, a 1.6L Miata.

                Laurinburg-Maxton Airport Maxton, NC. Its a decommissioned glider airfield from WW2. Its pretty rough in spots but lots of area to run on. The course FTD was in the 72 second range.

                Spratte made the animated gif, I'll ask him.

                  I thought i knew that strip, that's where they have the ECTA Maxton Mile events. Been down there twice and hope to return again. 72 seconds is the kind of run time that i wish we had the space to do here in Knoxville but no go as of right now.

                    Yup, those ECTA guys run there. They are insane to run the speeds they do there. In the animated GIF, the white line is their center line that they call the "good" line.
