I was on the waiting list for Chin's event, which most H86s are signed up for. I ended up getting accepted, so I'll be going both weekends LOL. My wallet...

Definitely. AutoX was great fun, but I'm doing a bit of an experiment and trying different driving events - AutoX, HPDE, and hopefully a drift event.

I will say though, AutoX in terms of cost and all that makes it highly appealing to me, I really had a great time there. But they say after your first track day, you'll be itchin' for the next.

I originally had signed up for the Chin Motorsports event at TWS so I could go with more of the Houston 86 Club, since many of them have more experience than me, but was placed on the waiting list and thus signed up with The Drivers Edge at TWS the weekend before.

Well, got a call last week that a spot opened up for Chin Motorsports, so looks like I'm going back-to-back weekends at TWS. My hope is that all the nervousness and excitement of the first weekend will subside and I can see an improvement on the second weekend. I'm planning on running with stock tires both times, so first weekend I'll be focusing on not running off course and into any barriers.

Prep this week will include brake fluid flush from stock fluid to Torque RT700 and stock pads to Project Mu HC+ 800. At least I'll be learning something new.




Side note: found some other pics from the AutoX.

Good plan.

If you have a chance to ride with an instructor, do it. They help immensely when you are first starting out.

Also, check out some Youtube videos of the track before hand. It will help you to become familiar with the track.

Nice. CSG recommended the RT700 and I've read some good reviews, so not too worried about the braking. Also picked up a brake master cylinder brace from a San Antonio AutoX'er for a steal, so good to go there.

Oh, definitely want to ride along on my off-heat time. With the 2nd weekend, hoping to ride along with some of the Houston 86 folks in higher classes to see how our chassis should perform and study their technique. Did that at the AutoX and was amazed at how great the car handles with a better driver - it's like a different vehicle!

Heh... Just drive. See you at TWS Chin.

I've got Cobalt XR2's to install this weekend along with fixing my exhaust leaks and reinstalling my rear diffuser

Getting everything ready for this weekend. I'm driving my car ~2 hours to the track. Is it recommended to have extra set of tires or will the stock Primacy ones be okay after a few weekends?

Assuming the Primacies don't have a lot of wear you should be fine.

Since you are new to the track you won't be able to drive them hard enough to burn them out.

One thing though, make sure you set/check your tire pressures. I found that when I was running the Primacies they like to be at around 35-36 PSI hot. That probably means starting them at about 31-32 cold before you hit the track.

Yes, they are pretty new. Thanks for the pressure recommendation, I'll start from there and adjust accordingly after a few sessions.

Yup, I started the primacies at 26 ish cold which saw 31 when hot on track. After a few laps I had to bump up the tire pressure a few psi
