I noticed that my car struggled while going uphill, as if it didn't have torque even when downshifting. Definitely something I have to check and to consider since I believe it affected my overall mileage and my rear right wheel drags a little bit.

Already looking into changing my suspension (lowering + stiffening) in order to maintain momentum in the countless bends throughout the course. Perhaps even a 4-2-1 header...

I have to say that the 1999 Tercel's result surprised me. The guy removed his right-hand mirror which most certainly helped.
