Steelies are a lot heavier than you might think.

Outside of Alaska, I don't know of many places in the USA where there aren't several events within a couple hours. Heck, I live in the middle of Iowa and there are probably 60-70 events a year within a 2-3 hour radius.

Seriously, click on the links in my sig or just put your location and "Autocross" into Google. Couldn't be easier.
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
