Video: How to prepare your car for an autocross

https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ay2y87u18zY

Want to avoid being "that guy" at the next autocross event—you know, the one who didn't prepare beforehand and got the event shut down because he spilled a bunch of fluid on the course?

All you need to do is follow our checklist of what we do before you even leave the garage.

My favorite guy is the one that shows up, in august, with no water, no hat, no sunscreen, and a tank top.
Guess who gets to shag cones with that guy? Guess who shares his lunch and gatorades? Guess who shows him around on his first day of school? >this guy<. 
 

im bookmarking this video for THAT guy.

Tech inspector found a failing tie-rod end for me once. I had not even noticed it, and the car was pretty new. Ford covered it under warranty.

Piece of plywood that sits on the lip of the k frame  and is held in through a tab with a bolt. Sticks out the max 6 inches, and is supported with drop ceiling cable and eye bolts. Absolutely nothing special at all!
