Meh, can't be worse than mine. I showed up at the Midwest Divisional Championship at Lincoln two weeks ago in my 2012 2.0 sedan with only coilovers and Hankooks, and I beat last year's Nationals runner-up on day one. Unfortunately, I sat out day two because of transaxle issues, but my heavy, underpowered car hung with the top of the class. I am absolutely convinced that the Mazda 3 could be the car to have for STF, especially if it is properly setup.
I'll be in Lincoln next week, but only as technical/moral support for my kids in Junior B. I will try to make it through grid for RTF and STF. Good luck!!!
