Hello everybody!
I'm planning on trying this AutoX thing out. I've never done it before and i've heard of how much fun it is, so I want to give it a shot. I have a '96 SE-R with an intake (just a cone filter) and a muffler (stock exhaust). What category would I fall into? Where would I be able to find more info on this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Check out Tarheel Sports Car Clubs FAQ page. Sections 3 and 4 have good info. http://www.thscc.com/faq.html

Also, www.scca.org has some info on car classing somewhere on it.

If those are your only mods, the cone filter will taake you out of stock class. You will be in street prepared (specifically D-street prepared) or street touring. See if you can sign up in a novice class.

Two things you do NOT want to leave the house without: sunscreen and Gatorade (water, Powerade, whatever)

Rule of autocross #1: Confusious says: Sometimes, you must slow down in order to go faster.

Have fun, let us know how it goes.

Yeah, the filter will toss you out of the stock class. Since you're new, it really doesn't matter. Just go out there and have fun. Remember that your brakes are the most important thing on your car if you want to go fast. Check out the Solo II Novice Handbook for some other tips.

Good luck and Have Fun!!

If you're a small guy like me you can try to lock your seat belt and then put it in the latch, then you dont have to support yourself with the steering wheel or dead pedal as much

In that case....just buy a good (SFI-approved) 5-point harness, a bolt-in unit will do just fine. It'll nail you down to where you cannot move at all, which will free you up to concentrate on the car and not on keeping yourself steady.

One of the best mods you can make for autocrossing, in my book.
