Re: Spet AX Course

My only feedback would be dont use too many cones as course workers will be spread thin. Boxes with lots of cones are hard to clean up when you have so much area to cover. Are the parts of course that go off the runway stable? Older stuff may break up if we get lots of cars running. Also will it be ...

Re: Have we discussed hosting an Evo autocross school?

I'd be wiling to join in on the fun! I haven't ever been instructed at AX. I probably need to unlearn bad habits. Let me know if you pull this off. I will pay if I get good one on one instruction from a national level driver.

Re: 11/13 ax applause

Did my 110.5xx have a cone? Didnt hear it called out and dont see anything in my video of that run to indicate I hit one. Oh well still tons of fun! Thanks again!

Re: November Course

Looks like a great course Paul! Looking forward to running this one! I finally have all kinks out of my car and it looks like you put them into this course. This course should be fun! My low second gear will be a help too. Just keep it under 50 MPH because I dont want to shift. :mrgreen:

Re: Modification Point Clarification

First I think we need to establish whether rules are intended to be fair and create a level playing field or are they to encourage a certain buying behavior? Certain cars with factory performance enhancements tend to be encouraged with the current point system. I like the fact that we incent purchas...

Re: Proposed new/updated AX rules for 2011

I support Andrews suggestion that rules require posting of all official times during event as well as marking cars with class numbers. I cant support the short cut rule he proposed. It would not be practical and we shouldnt put course workers in position to make judgement of somones intent when hitt...

Re: Proposed new/updated AX rules for 2011

1. I would like to propose that GGR come in line with more common AX practice of only counting first 3 or 4 runs for official time. Remaining runs during day would not count towards official class or PAX awards. This will allow those who are competing for time to attend AM session without being forc...

Yes it was there from morning. Big hole filled with dirt. ...Makes one ask why was course designed to go directly over that spot? :twisted:

Re: June AX Photos And Event Thoughts

Great driving! I was shocked to see your stockish old 911 turning such great times! Kudos to Joe, Chris and others making the event happen and running things so smoothly. Thanks Larry for an "interesting" course. I really liked the creativity! However I vote no more offroad excursions unless you wan...

Engine in the wrong place?? If the engine is in a car and that car is a Porsche I thought there only was one place for it? Yes youre right. If its a true Porsche race car its in the MIDDLE.

Re: 2010 AX season

I wonder what a stripped down lightweight 996 can do, especially on a faster course layout. It would still be a lot heavier than an older 2.5 Boxster ultimately and as Dan indicates engine is in wrong place. Stripping it would only put even more weight in the back. I'm sure it would be fast but sti...

I like to think of it as a new era for Boxsters. 914's will still be tough little AX cars to beat. Although they are getting a little long in the tooth.
