According to the members list there are over 300 registered VN owners on this site. This car was designed to be fun and driven on track.
I am curious as to how many of these cars will actually see a performance oriented events.

I will definitely be AutoX with the car! Probably next season as I'm pretty tied up financially and time wise with my newborn.. but I can't wait to see what this car can do out there between the cones! Hopefully I'll be able to get a track day in at some point during the life of the car too!

Daily Driver and about 6 track events per year.
I already have a ND Miata for AX. VN is too heavy. It will see AX practice days for tuning in the suspension.

How do you feel the car does? Ive never AutoX only track driving. I always thought my cars at the time were to heavy for autoXs. Also, its all over all so quickly : (

I like it so far and was surprised it felt smaller and more nimble than I expected. Suspension tuning is excellent. For autox, brake pad initial cold bite could be better but they still stop the car. Depending on driving style, a rear bar to loosen things up might help. Will be driving it on 255/40-18 Yokohama A052 this weekend so it will be a real test if it will keep up with the RS and CTR in DS on competing 200TW tires.


I can definitely tell this car was built and tuned for track days. It has all the right stuff to make it engaging and reliable out of the box.

I already have 4 track days completed in the Veloster N so far! Surprised I still have just under 75% of brake pads remaining with 10k miles. Bought a track set of pads that I will use in the future though.

Thanks for the feed back.

What pads did you get

Brake pad feel on the N (especially end of run hard braking) reminds me of the Carbotech XP10 during autox. Not enough heat to make you feel 100% confident the car is going to stop quick enough, but it does.

I do think the stock pads would love repetitive braking at temp...

I've been to both Portland International Raceway and Pacific Raceways.
OEM pads are pretty good for the track, towards the end of the day they tend to get a bit softer feeling though.
I got the G-LOC R16's for front and R10 for rear pads, will try them out if I get any more track sessions in September/October. Might sign up based on how weather looks.

AX is like Orgasm.
Track is like Foreplay.
Both are good.
Have any of you tried the concept of TrackCross? In my area, there are two tracks that have them. It's the best of both worlds.

Here is a video from my channel with my previous car

The NEPA SCCA guys kinda-sorta do something like that at Pocono but it is more of a higher speed autox course set up on one of the infield tracks vs a single lap at speed with no cones.


Is trackcross a NASA thing?

No it's run by Jon Felton from Get Fast events. He also coordinates NASA events at Dominion Raceway though. But it's independent from it.
