We will be having our test in tune at Danville on Feb. 25th and 26th. We will have more details on the format etc. asap.

What does everyone want to see at the test and tune?

What do you feel is most beneficial to you?

Being a total newbie to Auto-X, I'd love to get a shot at some instructional time. Just enough to give me some "feel" for what Auto-X is all about, how well my car will perform stock, what the low-hanging fruit is for improvements etc.

I'm sure it's all an old and boring request to veterans, but there really isn't much real information out there about the sport. I'd much prefer to know a few hard-core basics before entering the first event of a full season.

Also, a What should I bring? and What should I expect to do? Q&A would be great.

I'll shut up now.

On a phone eight now but here are some things to bring:
Stuff for a full day outdoors. Sunscreen, and bug spray layered clothing, drinks, etc.
A car in good condition. Good brakes, all its lugnuts, tires not showing cord, etc.
A sa or m 2000+ rated helmet if you have one. If not no big deal we have loaners.
Entry fee.
A willingness to learn.
That's it!

Sa is the nomex lined auto racing helmet. Mo was a typo. It should have been just m for motorcycle. Snell updates their ratings every 5 years. We allow the last three ratings to be used, and so currently 2000, 2005 and 2010. If your helmet is of recent vintage and says snell on the back then you're good to go.

We allow both open and closed face helmets. It's just a preference thing. I'm big on closed face since it gets me mentally focused when I put it on, unlike an opened face

I really need to work on 180 turns. If one of the days the course could have a single point cone with a 180 radius somewhere that would be nice. I'd also like to see some sunny 80 Deg. weather as well. Thanks for asking
