Can I drive really slow down the gravel road? :O I don't want to ruin the paint on her. Otherwise I'm in! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I don't think you can race your Fiat-500 Sport due to it's short wheel base. I THINK that you would be able to race it if some suspension modifications were made, but don't quote me on that. I'm sure someone with more knowledge on the subject will chime in soon.
What's the problem with the short wheel base? They're afraid of it tipping over? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Correct. It has the potential to tip over. Only the abarth version car race unless you modify your current one. Lowering the car and widening the wheelbase will do it. Take a look at the rules in the scca rule book. There is a section that covers this.
Mine and the abarth have the same height but according to the scca rule book I would have to lower my car almost 7 inches for it to be safe to not roll over, but it's pretty low already... But if an abarth can race I don't see why my sport can't. Maybe someone can look into it more for me? I know my car handles really well and stays planted throughout corners.

i don't know why you would want to say its an sti, especially around people that know what they are looking at. like buddy, its a wrx, who cares. personally i find it insulting that he calls it an sti

I would go for ridealongs, and maybe take a different car out to see if you like it. If you want to stick with a fiat 500, AND find autocross fun (and something you're interested in spending your car monies on) then look at a just selling and buying an abarth. Both cars would've taken a resale hit, and the MSRP difference is not that much (~$3500 CAD). For that you get: rear sway, different springs, limited slip diff, koni shocks all around, some sort of SS exhuast, better intercooler, ~25 more hp (with warranty), and bolstered seats. If you're serious about performance, you would be hard pressed to find at that sort of price point....and the car definitely wouldn't have warranty intact.Probably not the advice you want to hear, but probably something to think about...!
ST of the Focus variety 2 wheeling... on Hoosiers though.@Nirusan
I'm wondering why they even allow compact cars at all like that extremely dangerous. I'm still down to ride with someone if they want a buddy!! I'm a lot of fun. I can bring snacks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I know this feel, almost took out a line of cars leaving the red river ex on the way home from an event last year.
