Glad to hear you guys are still developing the STS car!

Still have the red ASP car, actually drove it last week for the first time since 2017 spring nats.
Yeah we got destroyed in STR this year, always struggle getting used to the Lincoln surface, faster courses, and the additional power coming down from altitude. Not to mention the ND is taking over the class.
Anyways, we will be back for another beating next year, not sure if it will be STR, ASP, or something else.

Hey, I've been following this build for a bit and got the inspiration to try my hand at building an SW20 MR2 for STS, starting this year. Wondering if you've dusted the car off and have any updates you'd like to share?

Not too much new this year yet unfortunately! We lost our local site for this year, so the progress has been a little slower. We swapped to softer springs at 400#f/550#r, and that really helped with the bouncing. The car feels really comfortable to drive, and we've had decent results with it on asphalt like this. On Lincoln concrete we still seem to be struggling to get the rev limiter high enough to compete consistently. Was also told that it looks like we're down on power coming out of corners, which seems surprising. So, we're working on getting an eManage going like dreemer posted about in his thread. Work in progress, but hoping we'll make a few more events this year and have a chance to make some progress. I'll try to get some more updates going when we do have some events and can try other stuff.

I saw you guys got a mention as likely contenders in the "Who will win" issue of Sports Car. Pretty cool!

Hey Alex, thanks! I was pretty shocked given that we've raced all of four times this year. Still, when we have the only MR2 that's registered they probably just feel sorry for us.

haha, maybe. Of course you did place pretty well last year, so it's not a totally wild guess on their part.

At any rate, good luck to you guys!

Hey, good to hear that you'll be at Nats this year in the STS SW20. I'll be there as well; I'll try and meet up with you.

If I remember correctly, I ended up in row 15? Closer to the entrance. I'll be driving my DSP RX-8, so we'll be running Tues/Wed.
