Auto trans?

Can I use Automatic transmission on Autocross, I am interested in Autocross, but I have a 1991 2.0si prelude stock engine turbo(Performer x) automatic transmission, can I race with that or i have to convert it to transmission? which is not a problem, but if I can race with Automatic there is no point in wasting money and converting it to manuals. And if you are wondering, I can drive stick and also used to race manual racing go-karts when I was 14(I am 18 now)

Yeah most definitely man, in fact I think Dwend does so. PM him for more details, he doesn't paruse the site as much anymore. Since you posted that other thread about increasing throttle response, I'd say do the conversion to manual.

Re: Auto trans?

You can use a Auto to autocross. It works ok, by using the 1st and 2nd gear lock outs. The hardest part is getting used to the delay the trans has when shifting. I would practice using the gear lock out while driving around town both shifting up and down. The 4th gen will not shift down unless the speed is safe to do so, I am not sure if the 3rd is the same way. When I was autocrossing the Prelude when I down shifted if I had to I would heal toe while the shift delay was happening. But rarely would I need to down shift in an autocross, I did that mostly when I driving the mountains.
