WoW. Congrats. The tire pressures are not surprising given the demands of Auto-X.
Again, congrats!

Re: Auto-X (fyjimo)

Congrats!! I have been thinking about doing that with both the R and the Miata, but I have been doing lapping events and Drivers ED events with Porsche Club and The Driver's Edge here in Texas at a couple of different race tracks. You may want to consider contacting your local Porsche Club for info on track events. Even more fun than auto-x!

Re: Auto-X (Bimmer Beater)

The schedule is at the Nebraska Region SCCA web sitehttp://www.nrscca.com/, this past week was in Lincoln, next event is at Iowa Western CC on the 30th, come on out! Tires were fine, not very hot out, course was slick so not much in the way of wear. As far as the PAX goes, I didn't keep track of the it since I didn't race street tire, but it should be around 39 or 40 sec.

Lance,
First of all, congratulations!
Just curious, how did you arrive at the tire pressures you used?
I'm assumming that you ran with ESP off, correct?
TIA

Re: Auto-X (WhySoBlu)

I played with the pressure on all four runs, my last run was with 44 and 39. I almost rolled the front over to the wheel on the first run with 38 up front. I chalked my tires on every run to watch the roll. And yes I ran with ESP off, If we would have had fun runs after I would have tried on and off.
