    ORPCA Autocross #4 at PIR 6-28-15

    I went to another autocross event and am getting closer to having the car dialed in but there are a lot of variables to work out. The biggest new additions at this event was additional tuning and Kumho V710s. I used the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires previously and they were getting torn up. Instead of ruining these ones I picked up the V710s for driving events and will save the BFGs for street driving. The car felt much more responsive than the last autocross day and I was amazed at how much traction the tires provided. The tires were heat cycled to maximize the efficiency and life of them.

    The day started off with a few sprinkles but it dried up. Here are a few quick photos I shot from my phone.



    The results from the event can be seen below:

    Now onto the videos. Run #7 was my quickest run but I hit a cone coming around the sweeper and it didn't count. The first event I didn't hit a single cone but I tried cutting the corners a little tighter this time and only had two clean runs out of seven. Lol.

    Run #6 was my quickest clean run. After reviewing my data logs I discovered that my boost level was only at 12 PSI. I recently learned that by default it goes to the first set point each time the car is started. I think I can change this but I need to read the manual. Although it may not be a bad idea to have the lower boost setting by default.

    Looked like fun! I like the fact that you showed the WRXs that the driver makes the difference!

    I guess you used 2nd the whole race other than the start?

    Damn good driving Schultzey. I feel you and the sx4 make a really good combo for competitive driving/racing.

    Yep I was able to stay in second for nearly the whole duration of the course. You scrub a lot of speed trying to make some of the tight turns and first gear is too low to go back to.

    Thanks. I am making improvements. There were some mistakes made but with additional practice and dialing the car in I think I can continue to drop my times. This was only my second autox event so there is a lot to learn. I don't know how competitive I could be within strict rules for car class of an organization like SCCA. I like the ORPCA because I am grouped into NPA - Non Porshe AWD no matter what mods I have done.
