I'd agree that in general the suspension/tire setup vastly outweighs any engine mods in an autocross. In our case we have an easy metric - SSC. As I see it, until I can run with the best SSC cars...

That's easy, some old VP forgot the name, so marketing decided to re-name the tire in their honor.

The basis of my cost comment is that it looks to me like the 15 pound 680 is a lot cheaper than an ATX-20 or 30. I haven't priced a ten pound AGM so I'm guessing they're more than a 680 at ~$150.

Take the kids for a couple drives in the next two weekends, that oughta do it :D

Otherwise, yeah, I think I'd change the oil prior to the event even if it's a little short of 1000.

Thanks, I'll try these. The 10 has spot exposure, does that need to be set every time? I got it set but I don't think it stayed that way after turning it off and back on.
