Let's get this started! Who's running which class?

I'll be running Solo 2 CSP for a couple of events this summer, just to get Mazda Comp happy, and running Improved Touring next year..

Well I'll be in F-Prepared I believe with the porting, the car might just run in CSP-Novice also because I actually won't be driving the car, I'm just the brains behind the team, although I'm an excellent driver, it's just that I have my hands full driving a Integra to victory in DSP

Also the car has no suspension mods at this point, so I don't think the local CSP crowd will mind if we run just two events to get the mazdacomp discount, like you said.

ASP. With the haltech i think i can raise the idle and not many people will notice. However the Big turbo and front mount might give something away. and the strut tower covers will hide the adjustable caster camber plates, and adjustable coil overs. Gotta keep Mazdacomp hapy. I forgot to turn in my two races last year and they are not happy.

Hey Derrick,
Curious what spring rates you are choosing for Pro 7. I assume you are using the Illumina's and running GC coilover conversion in front.

Thanks,
Mark

Yeah, Illumina's all the way around with the GC coilover conv. Since i am just building it now and have little experience tuning a 1st gen suspension setup (for now), i let GC offer their recommendation for spring rates. So i'm running 350# front and 175# rear. Also, GC camber kit and the 1 1/8" front sway bar of course...

With the FD I am running ASP.

When I drive the GTX I run DSP in autocross and PGTS (Street tires) in Rally cross.

ES, that's after they boot me out of novice (one more event they'll let me run novice). Of course, if there's only a few entries in ES next time, I'm just classing myself there. I like competition.

ES #2... for now. I'm not in ladies class either.. for some odd reason, they always seem to try to put me in it . I've been with the Panhandle SCCA for almost 2 years, it's great

I think when I start semi-modding my car, I'll be bumped up to CSP? I'm not sure.

BS until I get my Fprep car running and then it's off to ITS. I make it sound like I'll be done next week, but I'll be very lucky to be ready by next year. I was too stuborn to follow Silkworm's advice about buying your first ITS car rather than building it. It's been fun, though.

Hi christi,

I've autocrossed with ALTurbo2 a few times. We race in Birmingham. Its about a 4-5 hour drive to Pensacola for us. I have some relatives there(I was born in Milton) so maybe I'll get down there for the Allied vs. Axis autocross oneday.

I'll be running FP in my 2nd gen.

What extactly is the Allied vs. Axis? I've been with them for a year and half, and always wondered what that is.
