2020 Optima DriveAutoX Autocross at UMI Motorsports Park

Raced over the weekend in PA. Had a great battle with James Bishir who's real fast in his 6th gen SS 1LE. We swapped top qualifier a few times and were within a few tenths for 15-20 runs. I was...

I always break lugs loose by hand. I’ll use an impact after they are loose. I never bang them on with an impact either.

For an autocross you’ll typically only get 6-8 runs. Each run will be 45 seconds to a minute and you won’t be at full throttle much at all. You could probably get by with 1/4 tank. I like to race...

I just raced in northeast Ohio a few weeks ago at dragway 42. The local group set up an amazing course. Not sure how much stuff there is to do in BG.

Mike is one of the best tuners in the nation. He tuned my Z. Did you request a street tune? Or did you just request some dyno pulls to get a number?

Hell no! Get the headers along with an intake and either a mamo ported TB or a 102mm.

On a stock engine it’s around 10 so with your cammed engine I’d say 15 maybe. Headers and intake would surely get you to the 560-570 mark. If you think your car sounds nasty now wait until you do the...

Headers with no/cats is going to really wake it up. I would do the Msd atomic intake as well.

It’s not that I don’t trust the GM factory track alignment. It’s just that it’s too broad. Look at the toe settings on the front or rear.

There are 3 jackstands on the passenger side, and 1 jackstand and a jack on the driver side. The car is just so stiff that as soon as you get the front wheels off the ground the rear comes up as well.

IMO if they totally tune it out, it's probably way too lean. I looked at the fueling and timing tables of my car on Friday while it was being tuned.
