Angry Former BS multiple National winner to compete in an STX RX8!?!

I am not 100% sure yet BUT, I did hear from a local source that someone was builting an all mighty RX8 for STX. and today I just noticed that Jason Isley signed up for a local Championship event in the STX class wit an RX8.

I guess we'll have to wait for Sunday to know for sure what is going to happend.

Nice, with tire contracts gone and 18's being expensive, it was probably cheaper to add springs & RSB & big wide street tires than buy one set of V710's. My take anyway (and how I would have done it!).

Nothing to fear Mihai, I know Jason is a man of his word...His word is "Why would I want to spend money to go slower?"

I think you should have stopped at "You wont get faster", there is no need to explain the many reasons I will not get faster

Yes, the family tree runs deep in the entertainment world: music, movies and publishing - you may have seen my mother, Pamela, in a Batman flick - but for some reason my royalty checks have not shown up.

I will just have to continue to work on my lucrative career in Club Racing and stunt driving.

It was spring 2005, I was in Mr. Isley's bank, we were waiting in line so I could buy his 10AE Miata. I had not been autocrossing long, but was getting to be more serious about it.
He asked me if I'd ever been to nationals and tells me that I should go for the experience if nothing else.
He then proceeds to tell me that he was close last year, but this year he was pretty sure he would be able to win....

I was like: who is this guy and why does he think he's such hot sh#T?
Sure enough he backed up that boast and has continued to do so since...I think selling the Miata was a good luck charm.

O.K. Just came back fomt the Champ event. and It appears I was right. however I am sure Mr. Isley will deny it even 5 minutes before his first run at nationals .
It looks like he just started the build (not fully prepped yet, but enough to get me running scared)
