Hey all, may not be the best forum for this but there wasn't a dedicated track subforum.

I recently picked up a 2.0T Sport 6MT as a daily compliment to my weekender S2000. I used to autocross the S before I took the build in a different direction, but I miss the fun community and low barrier to entry (I've seen people bring out rental sedans just to have fun). The Accord is reasonably fun on the streets so I was considering driving out to have some fun at a local event. That said, I'm not looking for prep advice on tires, brakes, or suspension, but I've never dealt with tracking a newer-generation car with tons of safety features.

Has anyone taken their's out and tracked it, whether autocross or road courses? Any issues with sensitive sensors setting off airbags, or overly aggressive traction control? Anything else to look out for?

Interesting question(s). Unfortunately, I can't answer any of your questions because I don't know.

With that said, auto or road crossing a 2.0T Sport could turn into a disaster. I know you would mod it, but the car is not made in any way shape or form to be conducive to/or able to run autocross or rally.

As a side note, it's a shame the rally racing doesn't get the coverage it used to (Back in the Colin McRae days, it got decent coverage. However, I do know he passed over 10 years ago at least).

Good luck. Curious to see what additional feedback you get. And, please keep us posted.
