Somehow, I think you'll muddle through.

BUT... doesn't the package you're installing on your car sort of negate the fancy TRD kit that's currently on your car? If so, I'd say your car becomes the same as a modded "base" FR-S... and should probably be in M2.
Great point! It is just a modded DS car at that point. M2 it is. :thumbwink:
Well there go my chances :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:

The "Push Harder, Suck Less" philosophy explained:
Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.

I forgot about the bump provision in the rules. Thanks for the clarification.

You'll be there soon enough, for that nice, cool morning session. Cold pavement, cold tires, no grip.... :cool:
