Race in a 4X4 club and can outcorner the jeeps all day:brow: Most of the rigs we (family) go up against are high dollar builds, we drive an 84 hatch and soon 87 dl wagon. Cost to race 55-75 dollars, roll bar 150-300 dollars looks on the faces of the jeeps drivers faces we beat priceless........ for everything else there is a Subaru :banana:

I race. I rally, I rally-x, I auto-x, and I run occasional solo1 or timetrials. Haven't had time for anything other than Rally the past year now.

I wish I raced...

I do, however, drive like a maniac on the windy, hilly dirt roads around here. It's pretty much the hardest rally course ever. Its got snow, puddles, mud, dirt, asphalt, gravel, trees, hills, you know, the usual...

Oh yeah, forgot about that. Haven't run one in two years, but I do that too. The last one I ran in my RX was the Pine Barrens Express. Came in something like 3rd overall 2nd in class with nothing but a calculator.

Rally-X for me, but not so much since we added kid number 2 (Angelina is 4.5 and Aiden is 9 months!) I still support my brother in law in his efforts with his Eagle Talon.

Road race a vintage/historic Formula Vee (68 Zink Z-5) with a long-term restoration project of a 69 Zink Z-8 sports racer. Will start on a 65 Cortina next off season. Funny thing, I modified (very little) the seating/pedal positions in my 87XT to be very similar to the Vee so its like road racing everyday!
