What would you race?

If you didn't autocross your Mazda3, what would you get? Keep it realistic, no ex-F1 Schumacker cars. Say used under 25K

Probably a new Focus ST, which is probably what I will be picking up once the Mazda is retired.

Formula Ford in C-Mod.

And yes, for 25K you could get a car, trailer, and tow vehicle.

Got the tow truck and I've been looking!

I've been thinking STR MX5 or a STS Miata

thanks for all the input!

I would be all over an FD RX7 or RX8. Probably lean toward the RX8.

I had an S2000 and it was awesome...even better on Hondata. The F20/22C engines are nearly bulletproof. All in all it is leaps and bounds better IMO than a Miata. Has a bigger trunk than a Miata too! However, you may be labelled as "one of those Honda guys".

STR MX5 out of those 2. SoCal has great competition in that class.

But I would prefer the S2000
