Where'd you race today?

I decided to go autocrossing at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, LA today.

I trailered my RS again to this event. This keeps the miles off the RS and eliminates the need to swap from street wheels/tires to my autox setup. I arrived at NOLA Motorsports Park around 7:45am. I then registered and passed tech. Delta SCCA split up the runs into (2) heats. I worked first, then I got (3) runs. We all took a 45 minute lunch. Then I worked and ran my final (3) runs to complete the day. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

Weather started with a 81F sunny morning, peaked with a high of 92F. Minimal cloud cover.

Click on the pictures below to see the raw results, and run results. I took 1st in the SM category by 5.108 seconds. Out of 48 drivers I had FTD (Fastest Time of the Day) by 0.598 seconds. :)

Notes for my 39.624 run:

All racers got 6 runs. My 5th run was my quickest.

1. Tune+ W400 kit, full exhaust, JBR motor mounts, JBR shifter
2. Launch control ON at 5000rpm. ESC + Traction Control OFF. Track Mode. Sport Dampers off (MCS TT1 suspension).
3. Tune+ now requires LC rpm to be set by the Cobb AP. I was unaware, so the 5000 rpm default was used today.
4. New Programming = RDU module programmed to T5 (+12.5% overall torque increase), ABS module programmed with Soft Drift to eliminate Ford's Brake Assist.
5. 275/35/R18 Bridgestone RE-71R tires. Final hot pressures = 34 psi front, 21 psi rear. Camber = -3.1 front, -2.9 rear. Zero toe F/R.
6. Front MCS shocks at 15 out of 18 clicks, and the rear at 9 out of 18 clicks.
