spyder2 - '00 Toyota MR2 Spyder
Thanks: 77

I'd love to get into autocross or tracking (well, the prospect of eating up a set of tires and brake pads in a day or two doesn't sound so appealing for the wallet so maybe that can be held off for later). Haven't had time this semester, but next semester hopefully there is an SCCA event near me that I can go to. I missed one a few days ago since I've been busy.

My hope is that someone does a modern take on the MR2 Spyder someday so I can buy one, build a screamer high rev motor, give it all the suspension goodies and all, and take it to the track to unleash the monster once in a while For now 138hp is enough, maybe a little too much.

oh I forgot to mention that I ran 50 series on the stock RX7 14 inch alloy rims.
It was like being on a roller skate!!!!
Lowering a couple of tire sizes REALLY increases the rpms!!!!!!
