So the free escort is nowhere near autocross prepped, but with less than $300 in it the exterior is starting to look pretty damn decent and the government even deemed it roadworthy. Tires will keep it from being competitive in any autocross prior to the spring. But...

Radwood Philadelphia is October 14th. Driving up the Eastern seaboard overnight after attending the challenge in order to show at a carshow sounds like a supremely terrible idea. (Which is of course exactly why it's tempting).

I think you came to the wrong place, sir. Grassroots Timidity is the office to the right.

The local teammate enabler is even worse, providing starspecs, offering to weld the differential and do the exhaust cam swap.

when do decide that you're going to attempt a challenge run in your EGT and then spend all day doing body prep and primering your 323.

Tires you say? I have a set of NB miata wheels with a set of half life RE71 on them. Can deliver to challenge :) 

Problem solved.

Around here, "talk me out of it" is code for "stand by for build thread."

How large is the Waldorf lot? I definitely will need to start modding the driver again.

Yes, but you know it’s a really bad idea when that happens.

Or wait a week and drive up on the 21st for the DC rallycross at Summit Point ;) Way better for your adventure thread than a car show!
