Today’s autocross scene features more than a few pony cars–they’ve become the latest big thing, in fact. Look closely, however, and many feature reworked chassis, updated drivetrains and massaged bodies.

That's a really neat car. Did it ever get moved back to STX?

VERY neat car.  Makes me wonder if any of the other Tran Am cars could find a better place, too.  (like my GTV....)

I remember him dialing in the 240sx at my local events in SD.  When I eventually purchased an s13, I built it around his ST winning formula, which he was gracious enough to publish in your mag.  Being able to start with a blueprint of spring rates, sway bars, and alignment angles was priceless. I still keep that copy of GRM in the folder with all my shop manual literature.

 

My s13 ended up winning the regional SM championship in 2013 and placed 5th at the National Tour in SD in 2014 with 1.5 year old Azenis.  Only 2 cars beat me that year, A GTR (2 drivers) and a national championship winning e36 with S54 swap (also 2 drivers). All with a whopping 150HP and 225 width tires.

In reply to Javelin :

I seem to recall him posting on his blog saying this car was mothballed because of the rule change and he was prepping a 370Z to run until something changed. That's probably been close to 2 years since I read that though.

So this is funny: I'm Googling some info on Jongbloed 214 wheels, and this came up in the results. And I wrote it. :)
