Background & Plans
Purchased with the goal of going mid 10's with minimal modifications. Added little by little and ended up going until I ran 8's. I got tired of the drag suspension and switched things up this last spring and added some handling based suspension parts. I have participated in two, SCCA Test days so far.

My immediate plan is to add S197 Brembo brakes and the supporting hardware. I also plan to compete in at least one local SCCA Solo event, in addition to the two test and tune days in 2022. I really get a kick out of the test days, as the track is the same each time. This gives gives me a way to measure progress.

Above all, this is a reliable, thrilling, street car first!
