Find your local chapter. They will have listings over all of their races, along with other organizations that hold them in your area.


Auto-X is the most fun thing you will ever do. There is no way to prevent getting addicted. It's too much fun. And it's one of the few things you can do where a 4cyl can beat a fully built car. It's all in the driver :)

Aww, Im sorry. Well, you got PM now:)

And thanks for the info smoking.
P.S. I changed the same side quarter panel on my car and I ran into the EXACT same problem that you had. With those 2 screws by the corner light. Ihad to use a TINY little wrench to get them out. Those 2 screws alone took about 1 hour and a half.

Nope, sorry its too late now.... the only way you can make it up to me is the next time the g/f goes home have her stop in on a Kato store and pick up some N Scale Bullet Trains

Please check this site for schedules... I run with them with my Honda Civic and do so because the field is usually manageble or not too large - usually about 40 - 60 cars on most days... the last few times we got 8 runs each day...

When i went to an SCCA event, we only got 3 cause there were over 100 cars!

By the way...
this is my first post as a member...
Nice to post with you all...
Hope to share with me experience and gain from yours.

DOZO YOROSHIKU!!!

hope some of you can make it in April so we can meet...
look for a black ek hatch with white rims...

Actually they say it is better for some of your first autox to run an unmodified car. That way you really learn to drive it, and it keeps you in the lower class level. Remember in autox you compete against yourself, and the other cars in your class.

check out this site

I am running in my first Autox on the 11th wish me luck.
