    new member and prospective owner in California

    Hi all. I'm Joe Weinstein, a rabid autocrosser in NorCal,
    and considering a new or used Atom for weekend and
    autocross use. Do ongoing members read these obligatory
    posts? I would be happy to hear from anyone autocrossing
    the Atom, and any owner in California.
    Regards,
    Joe

    Here is a bit posted by Eddie on his first autoX experience in the Atom.

    I was an avid autoxer before life got in the way.

    Big problems with the atom will be 1) classing and 2) keeping heat in the tires.

    You'll definitely need a codriver.

    What class would you run? Super Stock??? Open Street Prepared?

    On A6s and light wheels, Eddie is doing 2G under braking and 1.6-1.8 sustained laterally in a bone stock car on the track with the tires up to temp. You might do better down in Marina or elsewhere grippy.

    I'm in Norcal, and happy to give you a ride if you're serious about looking at one.

    Cheers,
    Jason
