Stupid Toyotas...

Old video from the end of July but Im the blue/white car in front racing the camera car for position (class and overall), red Toyota is in a class by himself and based on previous lap times is slower considerably (1-2sec a lap), this is lap 3 of a 16 lap race after I had started at the back due to mechanical issues causing me not to qualify (got a suprisingly good start)

That move works great in Forza... was the Toyota driver overweight with pasty skin?

Door, fender, windshield, shifted the subframe, bent the frame slightly, left front control arm and while I had it apart also replaced all 4 shocks, both front lower ball joints, all tie rod ends, and both suspension bushings for lower control arms..

Still need to shift the subframe back and put new decals on but otherwise she's race ready. (Will probbly need a brake job before spring though)

Let me guess....the stewards did nothing to the MR2 driver? Must have been a racing incident!

The MR2 paid for all damages and Im the forgiving type (Im probbly the youngest Old school racer today) so didnt file protests, it helps that he also got a DNF from it while I limped it for a finsh

This is road racing not autox but check out this site for more info on the local roadracing (along with a link to the autox website).

Basiclly we have Pueblo Motorsports Park (where this happaned), Pikes Peak International Raceway, High Plains Raceway (by Byers), and LaJunta (fun track thats underused). I also race in Utah and New Mexico
