Colorado SCCA Driving School
« on: June 24, 2005, 04:44:28 PM »
Is anybody else signed up, or planning to sign up, for the Colorado SCCA Autocross school on July 16th?  I've registered my car (#6 STS) for it. It is $80 for members and $100 for non-members.  That includes the price of the driving school, and entry for the next day's autocross event.  Both events are down at PPIR in Colorado Springs.  I wanted to see who is going, or maybe just inform people who might be interested. You can find more information on that event and future events at http://www.rmsolo.org.

I've taken two autoX schools they are really good, although one school my group got screwed out of the best part of the day due to the instructor misunderstanding the stop time.  Oh well.  Lots more stick time than an AutoX.

You should not need a brake upgrade for autoX or the school, althought the school can be a bit more intense than an autoX.  If your brakes fade in a few hard stops during a one minute run something's wrong.  In some cases big brakes are actually bad for autoX due to the greater unsprung weight.  One summer day during the fun runs we ran six back to back laps in a rented Oldsmobile Alero, the tires were dripping off of it but the brakes were fine.

I didn't get accepted, too bad. I really wanted to go, too.  I'm thinking about nixing the rest of the season. I don't want to pick up things the wrong way and then have to unlearn them, while burning through already eerily worn brakes.
