May AutoX

Postby 3LOW M3 » Fri May 11, 2012 6:14 am

I just did a little autox in my e30 last weekend. I took a few pics and got some video...ended up finishing 12th out of 52 overall. Im pretty happy when my new setup. Miles away from my first autox on stock tires. According to what pple where telling me, I was getting up on 3 wheels in corners (unfortunately it was my inside rear wheel picking up) so it looks like a front sway bar upgrade is in my future. Other than that, the handling was on point. Tires where Khumo Ecsta XS 2's in 215/45-16 form. For 215's they stick very well.

yes i am currently running the stock 318is sways. They are about as thick as a #2 pencil. lol I currently do not have any more interior pics of Johns M3 but I meet up with him regularly so it wouldnt take much to do a photo shoot.

Kuhmo Ecsta XS 2's in 215/45-16 form. They are very sticky and well worth the $$ IMO

This was with ODR (Old Dominion Region) in Virginia. We ran at Fentris Airfield in Pungo, Va. I also run with SCCA when they have events close by. I really want to get on with the Grip Syndicate in NC..they actually hit circuits. Pretty soon I wont be that competitive at autox and Ill have to step up to open track events on account of the new build.
