yo, economy cars are bought by generally young people without too much money. These people are usually impressionable, all about image (read: ricer) and can be tricked into thinking their lancer is basically the same as an EVO.

Who here thinks there should be a WIDELY publicized national TCC (touring car championship) using sportcompacts in the US, with homologation requirements. THe way i see it, the evo RS sprint, WRX STI already fit the bill perfectly, the srt-4 ccould be made to fit. INstating such a series would force other manufacturers to build halo cars aroudn their compacts and also boost publicity and sales of base models. I mean, we can drool about the WRC focus all day long, but it's not the same thing as a base impreza owner pointing at a WRX and saying that and my care are 'basically the same thing'.


opinions?

Never Heard of it....

Get FOX and SPEED in on it, and it a Winner.
In today's market, it wouldn't take TOOOOOO Much Hype, but someone would have to present a "Proper Plan" to the "Powers that Be".

i can't see how this can fail. GIve FWD guys a weight break so our beloved foci (god i'm gonna be stuck with a c170 aren't I? *tear*) can compete against the AWD evo, and we're go.

I'll be the brains, Phillip can throw down teh money
