There was ER the S.F.S.C.A. ,P.C.A. I can't remember the group in West Palm Then there was the E.V.S.C.C that hosted the Bay Bottom Crawl and a couple of different Corvette clubs. I used my autocross experience as a stepping stone into the S.C.C.A and eventually I.M.S.A and a couple of 24Hours at Daytona as well as Sebring. The best I ever did though was a S.C.C.A. Regional Championship in 1978. The class then was B Sedan now GT-2. It was a long time ago but a great ride.

The best part was it was his paint ball gun, he left at the shop for his boss to fix it. I was just doing the right thing for letting him be the first to see how well it worked....:p:D:eek:

Probably both. The BETA ran MUCH better on the Xbox than the PC, and none of my friends play PC games, all Xbox. I will probably play the single player on PC, and multi-player on Xbox (or both).

Xbox will be limited to 24 players in multi, where PC has 64, big difference. Perhaps the Xbox will have a better online experience due to this. Reason for the low player cap on the Xbox is that M$ limits the amount of data that can be transferred by each Xbox in multiplayer on LIVE. While they can have more players in a match, once vehicles are added, each vehicle takes up as much data as 4-5 players, so they have to lower player count. Frome what I have heard, the Xbox version will be resticted to 30FPS. Something that concerned me before playing the BETA, but the BETA was so good on the Xbox (even with its programming flaws), that I was sold on it. Playing the BETA also helped me in Black Ops as well :p

I play Xbox with a Logitech G13 and mouse, so its an easy transition from game to game, and in actuality, I have more adjustability on the Xbox for my controls than I do on PC as far as linearity/exponential functions of the thumbstick and mouse... I dont need to have the best graphics, I prefer a better feel of gameplay (especially since when I grew up games had much better gameplay than gfx), and actually have started preferring console play since there are less hacks, and less $ has to go into gaming, which means I can buy more Mini-Z's and tires :p

At one point I had 6 computers networked so my friends could all come over and we could play Raven Shield and BF2... It was a great time in gaming for us. This was long before I started playing console games... I got my Xbox when MW2 was released (MW2 edition). I only play a handful of games. And primarily use it for the online experience. Black Ops completely sucked on PC, and I will not get MW3 for it. Perhaps for solo play, its ok, but online, completely sucks. I feel that most multi-platform games are now coded for Xbox, and then enhanced for PC. I feel that consoles are the primary source of revenue for game designers, so they focus more on them to be sure they run smooth. Especially since each Xbox 360 must meet the same standards, and the PC have such a large field of hardware that they must design the game for. My PC is a year and a half old, but not slow by any means (4ghz C2D), Black Ops SHOULD have worked amazing, but I played it 5 times, and never played it again on PC because it was so bad.

My car is bone stock Focus ZX5 SVT. It is almost like a factory autocross Focus. It comes stock with better engine (170hp vs 130hp), 6speed manual, better suspension, and bigger brakes.

I've wanted to do this since before I had a driver's license. As a kid I was around this sport all the time. I went with 2 goals. No DNF's (Did Not Finish - means you did the course wrong) and no hit pylons. I succeeded at both and got a bonus at the end of the day. 2nd in my class!!

I'm near Vancouver, B.C. (Canada) The club I joined (and several other clubs in the area) does do some events at Mission Raceway, but I'm not planning to do any track time this year. I'm not ready to race with other cars on the track, yet. The car I'm doing auto cross with is my daily driver, I need it not broken so I can get to and from work.

Now that I have a license, I've been working on cars.

I really want to drive a manual car and get into autocross, but I drive an X5. R/C's have been put on the backburner for a while even though I can't get into autocross.

Nice to hear from you. Maybe it's time to trade the X5 for a 328i 5 spd.

I used to autoX many years ago.

MINIz guy11
2011.11.28, 05:44 PM
My parents won't let go of that X5; they've spent over what the value of the car is now on maintenance. Plus, I'm only borrowing it for this year until I go off in college so unless it gets totaled, I have to drive it.

Now that I have a license, I might be able to sneak out a few times and play with Mini Z's again. I passed by Maj's on Black Friday when getting some stuff at Harbor Freight.
