3 Replies and 2922 Views Tires for STX class (NEWBIE HERE)  2922  3 Started by  alexvilla Hello guys I am new here, my first year running on SCCA events and first time at Auto Cross events as well.      I have a question I am looking for a new set of tires for my auto crossing events.   I currently have the nitto's nt05 which are ok but the temperature rating on those is from 160F to 220F for optimum performance, and at the events the tires barely get to that temperature on the last run, even when we have a 100F weather here     Now I drive an 0...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 ... 4 )
I was asked recently about relative power, torque and weight of various STX cars. I have to admit that I don't know much about cars in the class other than the E36s. I've heard 2650 lbs. for the RX-8s, have no idea of power and torque. I've heard the FRS can get down into the mid 2500s (saw a post indicating 2584 with a 1/4 tank of gas, trunk cleaned out, light wheels and battery, seats weighed at 43 lbs each not yet replaced) and I saw a dyno curve that indicated 174 hp6500 / 146 lb-ft4600...

3 Replies and 3026 Views Largest legal rear spoiler in SM  3026  3 Started by  toy4speed Hi All, I've been running a my old DSP legal rear spoiler on my now SM Supra for several years, and been trying to determine how large I can build the rear spoiler.  DSP has 10' in height, from bodywork limits, and I was thinking of making it higher, but there is no discussion of spoilers in the SM rules.  I will eventually go to a wing, but for now, wanted to tinker with spoiler design till time and finances allow a wing design.  Rear wings in SM allow 8 sq feet in area, tha...

11 Replies and 4109 Views New Hankook RS-3 in 195/50-15 in STC/STS  4109  11 Started by  brentglad I'm curious if anyone has done any testing of the new Hankook compared to the R1R in the new 195/50  I ran the 225 a couple years ago on 8's when I ran the Civic in STX and wasnt too keen on them as I was a single driver and it was impossible to get heat in them, but with the new 'softer' compound, and smaller size I think they may be a viable replacement for next year with the 200TW coming if Toyo doesnt re class the R1R.  Thoughts

I looks  like things are easier than a couple years ago with the emissions stuff.

Locally, I have a very nice class I can run in which only restricts that the car only run a 140 TW tire. The problem happens when I start going to other regions or competing nationally. If there is something I can change or remove that could square me in a nice national street tire class, I'm all ears. Car is as follows. 1991 Camaro RS 355 CI L98, modified aftermarket intake, headers, tune. This knocks m...
