Anybody going to these events next weekend and the weekend after?

Right now I'm 90% sure I'm going to be at the ProSolo @ Packwood but I don't know about Packwood National Tour yet. (Plus I haven't registered yet either :noes:)

I heard its awesome but the drive to packwood is way too long.....
I'm flying down there to co-drive. :vtec:

CS '99 Miata on fresh Hoosiers FTW.

Anybody got any useful tips of any kind on racing in a RWD car?

I've only ever driven FWD other than my parent's Chrysler 4WD minivan.

Be very very smooth... thats the biggest thing i noticed when I drove a Miata. Also momentum is big in those cars.

Another thing... the turn in is incredible in those cars... it took me a little bit to get used to it.

Wow I got so excited last night I had trouble sleeping, kept tossing and turning and waking up. So tired...

I fly down today to Seattle then I'll be on the road to Packwood! :vtec:

You will be amazed at the entry speed compared to the RSX. Also, yes, smooth throttle inputs after that. Have fun!.

Update:

Just got home from US National ProSolo event @ Packwood.

I got fucked up. :(
Mostly my fault... actually... it was all my fault.

Long story short, I coned my 3rd place away in C-Stock first time racing in a RWD. Most of my experience is racing in my RSX on street tires. It was quite the change... Not to mention my first time driving a ProSolo style autocross.

Final result... 4/7 + going home empty handed instead of 3/7 with a trophy + contingency money. :(
