So I have a couple cars but my personal fun/track car is a 91 MR2 non turbo. No crazy performance mods. The interior is stripped and the car is caged, but the suspension is pretty much stock with KYB adjustable strut inserts. However, I am in the middle of a major engine swap so the car is being upgraded from a tired old 2.2L 5sfe non-turbo motor that when fresh puts out about 100hp at the wheels (135 at the crank) to a 3.0L 3vzfe V6 with 165hp at the wheels (200 at the crank). So the car will be quite a bit faster and a bit more of a handful. My build is still in progress here: http://www.xceedspeed.com/forums/showthread.php?t=181320
Here is a pic of me at Waterford hills last year.
Besides open track days, I am on a 24hrs of Lemons team with 4 other guys. We field a 96 Neon with the 2.0L SOHC. See the Neon with the giant spoiler held up by legs. In October we finished 8th out of 71 cars. If we didn't experience brake failure toward the end of the first day, we would have finished 5th. Next weekend I would like to get in teh top 10 again.
Besides racing, I do enjoy writing about it, or at least stating my opinion, so I have started a blog which I hoep to update every 2 weeks or so, but getting the Lemons car and my track car ready I have been a little late posting my next blog.http://consummatedriver.blogspot.com/2011_03_01_archive.html

hahahaha I am still dying laughing at the dodge neon's spoiler with the legs... classic Christmas story moment. I have to ask though, why not turbo the mr2? they are absolute beasts when they are
