Re: i want to try auto x (quickhuh)

Almost anything is a good car to start with. You (probably) won't be competitive in any car in your first few events, so something reliable and relatively stable is all you need. Iv'e seen way too many folks get all excited, dump gobs of cash into a project, then find out that autocross is really not for them. After a few events, look at what class you might want to run in, what it takes to compete in that class, and make your choices from there.
Good luck and remember to have fun!

Re: i want to try auto x (quickhuh)

I knew I recognized that screen name.. Just to echo what Gazor said, it's best just to get out there and drive.. you'll know after a few events where you stand, and what you need to do to become competitive. I'd say don't do anything to the car yet. It's more fun to start off in the lower rankings and work your way up as you buy more parts and your skills increase. If you want to come out, just head to one of the Bristol events with "Team Swift".. I promise we won't bite, and you'll have tons of fun... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: i want to try auto x (asrautox)

97 Vr6 can be a great auto-x car. Good low end torque, not as heavy as the MKIV's. Best bet would be to go and drive like we keep asking
. Next year get some wheels and sticky tires so you don't shred your street tires.
