Who's ready for AutoX season??

I am. Koni's installed, new wheels will be ready next week. Test & Tune's around the area start next month and I'm doing EVO school in March.

I'm stock piling parts now getting ready. Should have my konis installed soon as well.

Last of the key parts for the STR build should be here next week.

Not sure how fast I'll be, but the car should be fun to drive!

As soon as mine gets back from getting a axle seal replaced (under warranty of course) then I will be starting my prep. We have our test and tune and autox school on the last sat in March with the first event that Sunday. I won't have the money for dedicated wheels and tires so I will be rocking my PSS's again. Makes it more fun!

No where near close to being ready. Still need to order shocks, springs, and other suspension goodies along with install, corner weighting, and alignment. Luckily the season doesn't start until late April up here.

I'm in for a retune (after my momentum headers and motordyne ART pipes) and corner balance/alignment with RT Tuning. I'm also waiting on my two-piece rear rotors from Z1 still. Trying to think of what tires I'll be buying next to replace my R888 and/or Hoosier A6's. Seriously considering a set of 295/30r19 A6's square. I have 315 rears now on a used set I picked up, but they'd be way too damn expensive to replace.

From my experience last season the car is a lot happier on 315's than 295's. Just hope they hurry up and release the A7 in a 315/30-18 soon. By the looks of it on tirerack.com's website, the A6's in that size are getting harder to come by.

Now I'm officially signed up for Evo Phase II school in March. Still waiting on the TVR/TAC schedule to be released to decide if I want to stay and do the Challenge School on Sunday. Since I'm wanting to race for points this year if there is a event on Sunday, I'll come home and race.

Ugh the 315's are so pricey... I would love if they came out with better sizing for the 18's though. I have an extra set of sport rays I bought with used A6's and I'm running those down to the cords and maybe flipping the rims for cheap to help pay for new tires. Meanwhile I still have my 275 square RS3 setup on my stock Rays and R888 275 square on Enkei PF01's that'll need replacing soon. Just stumped on what to do with tires for this season.

My car has been relegated to daily driver duties only, I'm racing a STU 350Z this year.

First local event is already in the books (Thank you SoCal weather ): Final Results - Autocross Sunday #1 Hosted by the Board - Sun 01-18-2015

The STU field locally here in SoCal is nuts this year, and with Bryan Heitkotter buying Brian Peters' car to run in STU as well, national events are going to be even crazier. I was very happy to narrowly take the win, especially considering it was the first event out for the car with a majority of the go-fast parts installed (including a diff installed the day before).

Car owner Mark DeShon has done an amazing job building the car, and I can't wait for the next event in two weeks to see how the changes he's making effect the balance. We were really struggling with rear grip at this event, there's still a ton of performance to find.

Here's a video: http://youtu.be/dBM-cA761Lc

Looks like the 370 in BS held its own against the S2k's

My F14's should be ready this week with V2 RS3's. Are you doing 275's or 285's?
