What makes you think the "weekend autocrosser" is an average Joe?

If a 15 minute job for an afternoon of racing is all it takes to maintain streetablility, I think that's a pretty damn good compromise.

DMS provided a solution and a reasonable one at that. Be happy knowledgable people are willing to help...

Weekend racing is a little understood activity to those who have not done been involved. That is one reason why we struggle to get more people out to autocross and road course events. At higher level weekend warrior racing using a daily driver on the track there are hours of pre and post track work to be done. What is routine, what is fun to a veteran autocross or road course veteran is a whole lot of work to an outsider. Swapping pads out is pretty minimal. Once people get a couple of events under thier belts, they get in the swing of things.

As far as tire pressure is concerned you can run nitrogen in them and they willnot change, alot of nascar teams do this plus heavily used in the aviation field for thermal expansion. An there is some oil changing places that service.

You are right, but changing tire pressures at the track generally means using compressed air. You can be more prepared and come with a supply of nitrogen and then you have the best of both.

Since we are discussing tire pressure, how much should I bump them up on the track. 45lbs cold?

For a road course we start street tires cold at 33 - 35 pounds. For autocross you will get a wide range of suggestions. Starting at 38 and feeling your way through the range for your car setup would be a reasonable starting point.
