    My auto-x experience.

    First time ever doing this. Got there, registered to race, "prepped the car a tad". And waited till it was my turn. Luckily a guy in a wrx took me around the track to learn it first.

    The times there ranged from 43 seconds as the best time to I think 65 was the worst time. "full run".

    My first run was a 61.xx just trying to get a feel for the track. Then 54.xx, then 52.xx, then 53.xx, then a best of 51.xx"passenger took an incar vid it's kewl".

    So we left and went to hooters to eat, I was looking over at the videos etcetc. Leave to go home from baton rouge "1hr away from home". Right before we get into lafayette I realize I left my frikking camera at hooters.... Called hooters and they said they found it, so I have to travel all the way back tomorrow to pick it up, so videos and pics tomorrow.

    They also had a v6 camaro manual running like 49 seconds, he was pretty good.

    Sweet, not bad at all. Looking forward to those pics and vids.

    I should take my GTP to a local one just to get my head in the game.

    Pretty good times for your first time out. So how did you like it?

    It was fun, any tips for an auto tranny though? I just left it in second gear, but it pissed me off, second gear sucks but sometimes u need it. maybe I can make it downshift to first sooner or something.

    I generally manually shift it between 1 and 2. I dropped a second off my times doing that.

    I remember reading someone who used HPTuners and raised their shift points to near redline so they they stayed in a lower gear longer.
