Hot Damn, Hot Autocross

Kim and Per competed at the CFR autocross today in Ft. Pierce. Woooweee was that hot. The temperatures were in the 90s with quite a bit of humidity. We wound up cooling down the Falken Azenis RT-615s after every run, as this sweeper intensive course put some serious heat into the rubber. We’re not sure how we wound up, we’ll post the results when we see ‘em!

Our tire pressures wound up being 37 front and 33 rear, that allowed a little bit of oversteer without being uncontrollable. We think that’s why the 15x7s on all four corners are faster than having the 8” wide rims up front, the car is much more controllable on that hairy edge of handling, you can balance the car between a little bit of oversteer and a little bit of understeer without trouble.

This week we’re going to install the larger calipers and rotors from a NX2000. This morning we painted the calipers as they had been bead blasted when they were rebuilt and were starting to rust.
