EDIT: don't make the mistake of thinking the baja will be a show car. Just more of a fun DD for a while. I do take the baja to small local shows for laughs, park it's ugly, beat ass next to some nice hardware.
Plus, auto-x was something I did with the GF, who is working and going to school and no longer has the time. The r-comps i bought are the slower-warming track compound, which essentially requires a 2-driver car to keep heat in them.
I'm considering 'renting out' my 17's with r-comps to one member of the huge crowd of subies that come to our local events. I'm figuring 30 bucks for the day (the tires cost me 50 total) and 5-10 bucks to rent my helmet.
I dunno. I would hate to make the last payment (13,400 left on the car) and have something major break. Moderators, if this is 'ugly' here, feel free to spin it off into it's own thread.
