Autocross 101 
Eat, Sleep, Race


Welcome to Autocross 101
Speed is in our blood. For that matter, it's hardwired in our DNA. So it's only natural for us to want adrenaline-infused driving. But, like they say, with power comes responsibility. So to get your fix without risking a ticket (or worse), you just may want to look into autocross

So you've dreamed of competing in motorsports, Then autocross is the perfect place to start. Anyone with a car, a helmet, and a desire to drive to the limit can participate with minimal risk of self-injury or injury to the car. But while autocross can be immense fun, it's also a precision sport that can be incredibly frustrating when you take it up a notch.
The primary attractions of autocross is that it is an inexpensive way to get involved in motorsports. The potential for car damage is low because of low average speeds, lack of stationary physical obstacles, and lack of wheel-to-wheel racing.

Autocross events feature competitive driving on a closed course, with each driver trying to beat the clock for the lowest lap time. You don't need sponsors, a pit crew, special training, or a even a race car to compete. As a matter of fact, many guys "run what they brung," or "Daily Drivers" and autocross their butts off in their everyday, street-legal rides

How it started for me

This is my little spot on the web about my adventure into Auto-crossing with a Classic 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Rally sport and anything else that I can pass along to help you get started

I came across an empty shell of a car in 2007 for 100 dollars and I thought to myself, there's not much left of this rusty bucket, so i will add big wheels, motor, suspension, brakes and hell lets go race this bucket

the problem is the fact that these cars (1st Gen camaros) were horrible handlers in stock form, due to several factors:

*Poor A-arm geometry (virtually no negative camber)
*Springs that were too tall (high center of gravity)
*Tiny front sway bar, no rear sway bar (no resistance to roll in a turn)
*cheap shocks (poor ride quality)
*to narrow rims
*Drum brakes (even the front disc brakes were grossly inadequate for the weight of the car and the speed it could attain)
