I'm at the airport, right now, about to fly back. I picked up a ride in an STX Mazda RX8, which I've never even sat in before, so I have no expectations...except for seeing friends from around the country and having fun! :D

STR ran east course today. S2000 domination that's for sure. Glad to see a few Solstices in there to mix it up. I'll wait for Andres report. They run again West course tomorrow. There's a spyder that is capable of getting a trophy spot but I don't know who he is.

Here's xhead's west course

Thanks for nothing ;) . Cap, seriously I could have not make it without or Blitzo's help.

Awesome week, more today, My co-drive put down the fastest time by almost 2 seconds, but barely brushed a cone ( he's not doing too well because of it--first Nationals-)... is ok we show them that is possible even with a handicaped car. He took 18th one out of trophies. I sucked , but promise to keep working on it.

You should have seen everybody's faces when he crossed the line with the 68.88.. !!!!

The car needs one thing to finish up the lob with the S2000, : tuning improvement and Rev limiter increase , but we all know that.

So who's joining me in the battle for next year victory?

Andres, it was good meeting you at Lincoln. Your positive attitude and energy is what it will take to keep pushing the development of the MR2 Spyder in STR!

I drove F-mod and broke the car, but I have an 02 Spyder in the garage. It was nice to see someone giving it a shot in STR, but it looks like it will be hard to beat the S2000s and the new miatas. Two pictures from the west course. If you want full size files, e-mail me at racerbill38 at yahoo dot com

Awesome pictures !! I definetly will email you about them.

there is not chance to beat the s2000 's on open courses with out an increase of power and higher rpms. Ecu tuning or the allowance of piggy backs and stand alones will change the story.

On a tighter courses it was a different story.

Just have to wait what the changes on the rules are. At least they know now the Spyders have a chance . We scared the poopy out of those S2000's on Friday

Big thanks to Cap, Blitzo, Vatic, and others that helped making this a reality
