Yeah, I guess I have seen about four or five of those things come to different events in the region. We run out by the New Nashville Superspeedway and once a year MCA (Mustang Clubs of America) puts on a road course from the big oval track. This year will be the fourth annual. I am pretty sure that a Seven that I saw there two years ago holds the road course record. It was one of those with all wheel drive (the twin motorcycle engines). That thing was fast and the guy who owned it was a real driver too. I have seen several guys have some spectacular spins in the rear wheel drive models. It appears that the all wheel drive model helps the handling quite a bit.

I assume you are talking about the Celica GT's? Well, if you are I ran against one at a SEDiv Solo II and the guys name was something like G.H. Grant and I think he took the National title in GS class, at any rate this guy was like 5 seconds faster than the next car. I mean he totally blew us away. The car was fully prep'ed though. By that I mean in stock class you can still change the to any shocks and struts, any cat-back, and any tire. He had the best of everything, but he is a real driver from what I have heard. I have also been told that the Celica GT is a ringer. They say it will be booted out of GS next year.
