We can have an MR2......... I have my eye on one. My buddy has one I'm buying for parts. He told me of one for sale in his area. We can get them both in one pic at his place and He'll write a little receipt for both. The one I'm getting for parts is $600. The other is going for 4 or 500 bucks. I'll get the one for parts, can  y'all get the other?

I bet we could beat a supercharged MR2 with a N/A MR2 if we build the engine and dyno tune it and have the proper gearing for its power band. The SC MR2 will have very long gears and probably an additional 70 pounds, our flywheel/clutch will be lighter, and we'll make much better gas mileage which will save us from having to pit as much.

Good eyes, I didn't even think about that. Considering multiple drivers and seating positions, I think this is a must for our car.

Here is one for $14.99, 5-panel 35" wide mirror:

How well do you think the wink type mirror will work in the MR2? Is the B pillar going to get in the way?

Check this one out...



and I think this is it after the race:


:o

It looks like they left a ton of stuff still on the car. The dash is still there, molding, side mirrors, even rear license plate holder. I'm betting they were just screwing around and didn't really try to do much of anything.
