i've never raced my car...but at the track ive seen civics and other 4 bangers running 17's & 18's which means they are either reallly bad drivers, or pretty much stock. Hell, I know I've always been curious as to what my ATX focus would run... but I'd never race it and risk f'n it up.
If you wanna try it, try it. Any real car enthusiast will respect the fact that you are there to experience the sport and have fun, not try to beat 12 second cars.
