#MR2sday Photodump From The Weekend

Went to autoX, and took some pictures. Here’s Charlie parked on Saturday. He wants stickier tires and more power. Not much I can do about that at the moment, but hopefully I’ll get some slicks and some deep offset wheels soon so I can put 15x10s all around. Thinking about turboing the piss out of the motor until it blows then doing an engine swap at that point.

This guy is my main competition. He’s also running an AW11, but heavily prepped and supercharged. There’s really very little left from the original car. He usually beats me by not as much as you might think, but I had him beat this weekend. His is down to 1400 lbs.

Paul Wright’s custom built car called Scrap Metal with a Honda S2000 motor and Supra drivetrain. This thing’s seriously quick, but he’s still working out the kinks in it. He lost a plug that was blocking off the heater hose exit on Sunday, so borrowed my MR2 for the last few runs. That was nice because now I know that I’m getting more out of the car than I thought I was. He’s a very fast driver, but was only a few tenths ahead of me in my car.

Hubert has a super clean ‘84 E30 with an S52 swap that’s excellent.

Someone showed up with a Formula 500 car. I always like seeing these out.

Then, when stopping for gas on my way home I spotted another AW11. I always love seeing these.
