That is pretty neat! Hard to add lightness to a sedan, but I see you are doing well.
Thank you for sharing!

You shouldn't apologize for the looks. It looks like a racing sedan. When fancy paint jobs make a track car faster, or you pick up a sponsorship it will be time. Further, it looks like you're taking things in the right order. I suspect you'll really like the outcome of correcting the front suspension geometry - should help a bunch with turn in and total cornering force. I tracked this car's great grandfather back in the late '90s and early 2000s and found it a surprising amount of fun for not much money as such things go. Do they still use the multi link IRS? That really helped keep the rear end planted in the turns and (along with ignoring the advice of a guy with 100 more horsepower and RWD) was responsible for me setting FTD in class at BeaverRun once.

Thank you! this was actually the last model before Toyota switched over to the torsion beam. Im pretty excited about the front geometry correction my local track (Willow springs) on streets of willow my lateral force is lacking. but i daily the car as well so all creature comforts are retained. currently clocking a 1:29.05 at streets of willow but i know there is a TON of time left in the table once its dialed in.

I really like the XRS. It delivers more than it promises.

At a local Cars & Croissants, I brought it and a bunch of kids ran over to see it.

Geez, I was surprised.
