I know... I really wanted to spare the WRX the torture of "abuse" this season, and have some fun in my MR2 with it's new clutch and Azenis, but it hasn't been too reliable thus far It's been just one problem after another since I got it out of the garage a month ago... But don't worry, it'll be out in Rome before too long Come out to the Albany event next weekend and it should be running there (I hope).

I can see why you'd be a little uncomfortable with the V700's... a set came with my new wheels and I only had them on there long enough to drive to the tire mounting place and get the tires swapped, but that was a white-knuckled ride! The car wanted to follow every groove in the road, and if I twitched the wheel at all the car shot off to that side. Took a little getting used to. I could see it being fun on the track, though

STX allows all kinds of suspension mods and I think is a little more liberal when it comes to body mods and limited engine mods. Larger wheels, too. I'm running 98 RS wheels right now, so the extra .5'' would bump me into STX. I'd choose to run STX anyway, though, because no R-compound tires are allowed (Unfortunately, if you run STX, I think your Azenis will kick my 712s' soft-sidewalled rumps. )

There's still a big 'ol ding in my hood, but now that I have my MR2 back, I can drop off the WRX to get the work performed.
