exactly, spend time developing your talent! spend the 400 at 10 rally cross events (sign up fees) and then when you get to the 10th event, you'll know how your car handles and spank some cocky kid in an STI who thinks he's all that! Dillon Van Way took the 2wd championship HIS FIRST YEAR in RAlly America w/ a STOCK SVT. granted it has more power than the SPI, but he was going against 300 + whp vehicles and still won. its a drivers game in Rally, right now, your car is better at you than driving, so improve the driver and then improve the car. not visa versa. they always say the best mod is the driver! so take your time, learn the car and once you master the car on gravel, pavement and snow, then upgrade the car. for now, just do safety stuff and have fun in SCCA events!!!
