Debut Autox and new shoes

Oct 21, 2009 update on thirdvector's 1986 Toyota MR2

After all the blood, sweat, tears, and general whining I’ve finally got the car “ready” for some serious autocross flogging! I needed new tires badly, so I ended up getting a set of 16x7 slipstreams with brand-new Falken Ziex 912 tires really cheap from a guy who needed money for his turbo project. Like the prokit springs, the tires are great for the street, not so awesome at autocross. Lack of grip was an ever present issue. I had fun managing the near-constant oversteer though! I guess they might teach me to be a better driver as well, as they certainly don’t hide any mistakes
