Awesome how did u like going from a stock rear bar to 25mm? I was afraid to make too big of a jump for fear of the rear rotating around during daily driving

I reccomend a rear bar. a stock car understeers so bad, the bar brings it back to neutral.
the only way i can see the car coming around on the road is if you do something silly like entering an off ramp way to fast and snap lifting off the gas. but that could spin any car.

Here are a few pictures from our first event of the year. This also shows part of the reason why I am looking for a new fender liner..

Okay, our first AutoX for Houston, TX was on January 6 2013. Regional #1

We don't have as good as scenery as what you guys have in Canada ... but I was able to capture some action of cars anyways. Since I am running and didn't have a double driver this date ... no photos of the focus. Oh well. Next time.

That is awesome!!!! I wish more places would do that. Heck I was in texas for 6 years and could ride my motorcycle year round. you would think they could run year round. haha. I will definitely put up some pics when I get to the first run here in Arkansas.

No lights. I bought the grill from eBay uk for ~$23 shipped. One of the best things I have purchased for the car, behind my new hella hid headlights. It really cleans up the front end of the car.
