Autocross pics

A few pics of my first autocross with the new Yaris. Except for the wheels and tires off my old E street Miata, it's totally stock. It was an absolute blast to drive!

Yes, I know I need more camber!

That second pic is killer; the way she's diving into the turn and rolling out.

Depends if he wants to stay in HS class or go STF class.

In HS, widest and offset he can go is what OEM is, can only change 1 swaybar front or rear. Also can't change ride height, but he can change shocks

In STF, he can go 7.5 but no lower than 30 offset, Swaybars can be whatever, and coilovers are allowed also.

Tires, you would want either BFGoodrich Rival S 1.5, Bridgestone RE-71R, Dunlop Direzza Z3, Federal Tire 595RS-RR

In that order probably.. but that depends on your driving style

Looks like STF is going away, I'll stick in H Street.

Yea, It's a dying class. Rumor has it that they are some class changes for some of these hot turbo hatches coming out. Some guys in STS will be in a new class and STF will move to STS. We will see. Nothing in stone yet

Keeping with the theme, threw some street tires on the road race car and took it to the local AX. What a blast this car is.
