Our first event of the year would have been today, but the crapload of rain we had the last 24 hours (or 3-4 days for that matter) made the access road/hill impassable, so the event was cancelled.

But not before just 5 minutes earlier I had spent the time figuring out how to cram everything I needed into the car, because I had never gotten the trailer hitch and HF trailer I had planned to get over the winter.

I was pretty sure I could do it, but never physically tried until the night before. (Someone else on here once told me he worked better under deadlines, maybe that is true.)

4 rally wheels, hydraulic jack, 4-way, breaker bar, cordless impact, bag of tools, camp chair, helmet, helmet support, GoPro with accessories, bag of misc stuff... And still had room for me. At least I know for the next event!

If it wasn't for the night before the event, nothing would get done!

I spent Friday after work re-attaching the fuel pump to my floor. It fell off at the previous rallycross...

Boy, that brings back memories. I used to run 195/55-14 R-comps on 15x7 wheels on my MR2, and since I live 100 miles from the nearest track or autocross course, I used to carry all four AX tires (1 in the frunk, one crosswise in front of the passenger seat, and two side-by-side in the passenger seat), a small floor jack, helmet, small ice chest, lawn chair, tool bag and umbrella. People used to stand and watch as I unloaded. amazing amount of room in those cars if you're careful about packing.

I was ready to remove the passenger seat if I had to. But prefer to leave it for ride-alongs. (The property owner sometimes has family out watching and the kids like to ride with us.)

just for ideas....one of our AW12 rallycrossers...

ignore the part where the car is on the flatbed (engine issue during runs)...note tire storage..

Wouldn't that be an SW20?

That's the way I would do it... but that's a SW22 ;)

EDIT: yeah, it's probably an NA, so SW21... though SW20 is the common term for the Mk2 MR2 in general.

Thanks for the idea. I'll be doing that hopefully before the end if the summer.

That was my tire idea if they didn't fit all the other places!
