Unfortunately I was elbow deep in Moving boxes and sweat. I am looking forward to running in the next AutoX at Waldron though. I have never done any kind of racing and am looking forward to seeing what the CRISSIS and I can do. BTW what all do I need to run. I assume helmet, but I am mostly unmodified (Short throw and Cold air only) do I need anything else?

SCCA Auto X

You'll be fine. Your helmet must be Snell approved. Where we run shorts are acceptable but you must wear closed toe shoes. I believe my wife said today all the camaro's were classed the same. If you have any mods at all (CAI,exhaust.etc) you are put in the street prepared. Not sure that the division of V6 or V8 was correct tho. We'll be checking so its fair. Please feel free to come out the Auto X or any other meet up we have. Here is the link for the local SCCA club. You can navigate around and find specs for helmets and info for joining if you desire (not required to run). Any questions please ask. I'll be home in two weeks so I look forward to meeting you.

Well I was number 2 out of the Camaros so V6 vs V8 wasn't that big of a deal. I really wanna get some better tires, VMAX ported throttle body, and better gears.

Careful with the tires and gears. Really sticky race only tires will put you in another class. I believe the gears will as well.

I was talking about getting tires like what come on the LT and up models or something similar that hold up a little better. Definately cant afford stickies. As far as gears go I have 2.91 right now (stupid chevy) and would like to go 3.45 or 3.73 but nobody makes a gear kit for them. I am thinking about swapping my rear end with an SS so I have LSD and can choose from more gears.

I got ya. Ive seen a few SS rear swaps. Looks like new drive shaft would be needed as well but I know vendors on here can sell you one. It would get rid of that stupid clunky two piece shaft we have now. That is one of my biggest dislikes of the car. I'll be getting one when I upgrade my axles. Soon, I hope.

When I turbo or supercharge this car I will need to get a better driveshaft and rear end to be able to SAFELY handle the power. As you mentioned too it would be alot better without the damn 2 piece shaft. Hopefully you can be there for the next Auto X. I can't wait until the next one because since I will be a member I will be able to have Steph ride with me.

Better sedate her. JK. Its one thing to watch from the outside but as a passenger you have a feeling of no control. Even when I ride with one of the vets I'm thinking we're gonna crash. Its different when your steering and have something to hold onto. Fun none the less. Better watch it she may like it so much she takes the car and you will have to buy another. Win win
