I absolutley love every part of this car except for the stripped interior. I know you autox but that just my taste. Everything is so impressive. "Street Bike acceleration." Man I'm jealous.

I will be autocrossing mainly with eugene (eescc). The rest of this season I am going to try to sort out the car and how to drive it, but next season Im going for points in FP.

FP is a good class for EESCC, your have pretty light competition.

^^^ Exactly now that SM is a "higher" class than FP it is an easy choice. FP allows me to build the car how I want (and follow the rules) where SM does not. XP may be in the future...

XP can get dangerous because there are some very capable cars in that class since its kindof the anything goes category. SM has kinda been the go-to class for engine swaps (subaru) although there are a lot of guys in that class that arent legally in it.

Yeah I was about 6 tenths off of one of the faster XP drivers so I think it is possible but for now I plan on FP. SM is fun there are a lot of subarus but like you said almost none of them are SM legal.

I know my car is kind of low now so I wanted to see if I was on my bump stops.

Front control arms still above parallel

Ride height is about 13.5in from hub center to fender on all four corners, all bump stops have the softest ring cut off.
