Default For Autocross fans. Show your stuff!

Post up your own videos of cone killing here. Let's get a thread going for those who love to Autocross.

I don't have a Volvo to autocross anymore. These are videos taken last weekend at our clubs last event of the season. I'm running my 2002 Camaro SS. The aerial video is the same run you see in the driver view video. I finally got some new tires that grip like crazy just in time for this event. The Saturday video was my first time driving on these tires, The car accelerates hard now without tire spin tendency. Turn in is great. The tires are Falken Azenis RT615K+ 200 UTQG rated high performance tires. The SS is bone stock. Not a single cone was injured during the making of these videos.

My first run Saturday.





My third run on a different course on Sunday.

That drone perspective is pretty fun.

I used to autocross a Celica back in the day. Good fun.

Back when I used to autocross my old 72 gran torino sport, remember that one Roy? I do have some videos of it taken with 8mm video camera. Here's the only vid from a few years ago when OVTers went to Salem and did some autocrossing.





Here's your buddie Greg.

I never saw your Torino. It's too bad you don't still have it. They have gone up in value dramatically. That was a fun OVT event. Tony, Jonathan, you, Greg, Kyle and a couple others if I remember correctly.

You don't remember my torino, it was the 72 fastback brown with rattle canned black stripes, hood scoop, fastback. Sport model. Boss 351 Cleveland raced it behind the Valley river Center. I found the torino in a field out in Marcola. It had bashed in front window. It was rusty. I did get another one with only 66k on it and way better condition and it was Steve Prefontaine's sisters car. I should have kept that one. Sold it in 2002 when I moved up here. Actually sold both of them then. In college I had a 73 fastback torino with boss 351c and top loader four speed. I shoulda kept that one, but decided I'd better sell it before I crash it.. ha.

After that I raced a 80 merc capri once at LCC with 70 HO 351C I put in it. Back when I worked at the auto doc in Goshen. 90's. I'll upload a video. Good old EESCC.

I vaguely remember it. 2002 is forever ago now. I'm lucky if I can remember stuff from a year ago these days.

The 240 isn't ready to pass tech yet, so I took the S80 V8 out instead. All-season Pirellis, 4C in 'Advanced', everything stock. It's clearly not made for this, but it certainly didn't embarrass itself either, running less than a second off the pace of a gaggle of Miatas:

Run what you brung. It's all about seat time and getting the most out of what you have.

I don't have a whole lot of videos of mine, but there's a couple of random times where somebody slapped their GoPro on my '80:

Doing a fun run after an event (back when it was a fairly stock B230FT):

And, same GoPro, from the year before, my father driving:


Later on, with my 16VT setup:

And completely goofing around on bald tires to do a promo video:
