I start one of these every year. Just checking to see who is still out there and if anyone new has joined
I appreciate the suggestions! I ended up going with some Fallen Azenis RT660s. 215 40-17Picking tires and rims is all based on what your club allows. If the car is basically stock, and can run a stock or street class, you may have to stick with the stock size 17x6 in rim. Here's some choices by tire rack https://www.tirerack.com/tires/Tire...&rearRatio=40&rearDiameter=17&performance=ALL
UTQG: 200AA is usually the softest tire allowed, and will give you good streetabilty and good track performance.
Here's some good reading Ultimate track tire guide | 200tw, 100tw, street-legal track, R-comp
If the car is modified you may have to run in another class which probably would allow you to run a better size rim. The stock 6" wide rim limits how wide a tire you can have.
Good idea about going to an event to just check it out ahead of time to see how the club operates.Going to my first autox event April 3rd in Memphis (link below). I'm currently shopping for helmets. I am about 90% sure I'm just going to spectate/lurk, but my goal is to actually participate in the following event on the 16th.
As far as specs, nothing to report besides the BC's.
Also, any recomendations for height adjustments? I'm running stock wheels (and everything else). Just want to zip around the track without my car exploding. Any advice on etiquette is also appreciated...

I did flush the entire system with DOT4 until the fluid was clear. Then I did it a second time again just to be sure. DOT 3 brake fluid is compatible with DOT 4 brake fluid.Dot 4.... how did you get all the DOT 3 out of the system?
yes but mixing the two negates the benefit of the higher temperature fluid. I double flushed my old system, ran almost 2 quarts though the system with a pressure bleeder.Dot 3 and Dot 4 are both Glycol based so they are compatible. My car has Dot 4 since 2004 with no problems. I doubt if the shop that did the work went to the.troublr of a double flush as they didn't charge a lot of money.
