Great advice!The golden rule of Autocross is sort of "run what you brung" until you get a proper feel for the car.
You can throw parts at it, but unless you have some experience behind the wheel they probably aren't going to help you much until you have ample seat time.
I drove my friends MKV Gti at a few events over the years and i have to say that we run much faster using the stock ECU settings even though he is Stg. 2. But it is a blast and a lot of fun.
Cant help you on the set up though cause I have gone back to F125 shifter Karts.
Get out there and get some seat time and enjoy yourself. it is a blast.
I'm switching it up and running STX this weekend so I'll see what stock programming is like.Have to agree here. From what ive seen it will probably be better to stick with stock ECU for autox. I know i will be running in stock mode this weekend.
As for setup, additional air in the rear tires helps a TON with rotation and makes the car feel much more nimble. I'm in a MKV Jetta, but its pretty damn similar.
