A whole peg!
Turo rental in Charleston, SC and I’m liking this car so much more than I thought I would.
Here are some photos from my last rallycross with the Neon. Came in 2nd place in stock FWD out of 6 people. The top three were less than 2 seconds apart over 6 runs, or 1 cone penalty if you’d rather think of it that way.

Please read it and share in my misery.

Practice event, so I got about 15 runs in. So. Much. Water. Fun to practice keeping momentum through the muck.
Drove my wife to work for a while today. Somehow, I found ways to entertain myself until her meetings were done.
The STI is a beast in the snow, able to get through anything and willing to play whenever asked. It’s misleading seeing other cars spinning their wheels and not moving at intersections and being able to pull away like normal. I’ve got “performance” winter tires on it, so not all-out snow tires, but they’re perfect for…
