I really want to try some road courses but I can't afford them and auto-x just doesn't wet my whistle.

Hmmm looks kinda boring. How the hell are you supposed to know where to go? Watching that in-car view it looked almost random and such a small coarse barely out of 2nd gear.

That seems like it might be fun to do once. But i agree with the majority i wanna drive in more than 1st and 2nd gear. Road course deffantly looks fun. Ironically enough i live there that video was taken place. Im not knockin it, if thats your thing have a blast.

trust me i prefer the road course also but being a n00b to making turns i feel autox can build my skills towards the road course.

no, its more fun than you guys think it is. for my vsp driving training, we basically do the same thing...except we make a crown vic do things you never thought was possible, or at least i can. :)

I've been to a few auto-x and road course events around my area and its def a ton of fun. If you dont have access to local road courses then auto-x is for you.

Yea it looks a bit confusing. I think once your there in the driver seat its a little more clear on where to go. And Im sure walking the track a few times helps.

My house in FL is about an hour north of Sebring. I still havent gotten to make it on that yet. I never really had a car worthy yet. But I agree I think autox is a great starting point for people that want to do road course. It teaches basic car control and gets you some seat time.

laguna seca is on my things to do before i die list as well lol.
I want to drive on a bunch of tracks. I want to be like a forza game and just hop from track to track. lol

Greasy, you REALLY need to hook up with the OG Hybrid folks if you want try the willows. I have some CLASSIC video from people like Katman and such when they were "newbs" doing driving schools.

Today, I just found out I have the PERFECT autox tranny, well it could use a GearX first gear :)

o i've made a crown vic do things you dont wanna think about. Like a 95ft burn out, Seriously high speed turns and various other things.


Id give it a whirl once but id much rather road course it. Dragging just gives me a certai nrush when your sitting at the tree though
