    Chris is here, and I'll follow him up....funny thing is...I'm actually awake today...

    I'm going to see what his car can do....

    since I didn't get the engine stuffed yesterday in the ae86...and the tires on the Z are shot...I'm stuck with the Mirage... <_<

    It's all sound and no go <_<

    But the lack of power was the only thing, other than that...it handled fine, had decent grip, decent cornering, the back could have been a little stiffer, but it was manageable....

    the course was wide open and long...and I never got the car into 3rd on the first straight away....

    All he needs is just a little more power, and he can do fine with the car.....to much power and he'll just lose the handling.

    I think if he switches over to a tuned DOHC engine, keeps the car NA, and focus's on his suspention and tire selection...he will get real good.

    my stupid shock error would change the handling of the car drastically... to be suprised the nittos feel a bit more predictable on the rear than the ESes but the shocks werent correct.

    there is no tuned DOHC motor for the mirage, only options are the 1.5, 1.8 SOHCs and swap in a MiVEC ( about the same power as a gsr motor in the same trim) for $$$ but never pass emissions... or a 4g63t.

    the transmission is much alike an LS tranny.

    ill have more goodies installed for the next autocross, like the BIG BRAKES and phenolic and HOPEFULLY the clutch.
