How muddy did you get yesterday? Rochester was quite fun after the mud sorta dried up and we could get back to some real racing. I definitely need more practice in the mud, I was fighting the track all morning!! Had a blast and was good to see friends again. I #rallyx
A clip from our fastest run at yesterday’s PMSC RallyX (1:21.1). Lots of room for improvement in our driving and pacenotes, which hopefully means next time we’ll be even quicker! Also became abundantly clear that the stock suspension on the RX8 is not cut out for this kind of abuse! The low profile tires on 18” rims don’t help either. Could probably have cut a few extra seconds off our time if we weren’t struggling to keep the car under control as it slammed over each bump. I think some much needed new suspension is on the horizon! 😁

Had a phenomenal time driving an exhilarating stage. Also would like to thank all the volunteers and our competitors for keeping us pushing harder and faster all the time! (And for providing us with some zip ties when stuff start to break as we tried to keep up!) Glad the RX8 made it out mostly unscathed. Looking forward to the next one!
I think this is the beginning of a great relationship.... It definitely needs a few things. Some @6ovrcrst_rallysport overfenders. A wrc style wing and roof scoop. Maybe some gold 5-spoke @kanseiwheels
I also think it needs to stay RED! What do you think?
It’s such a good time to be in the PNW if you love Rally... The spring calendar is full of events!
Olympus Rally - 4/27-28
May Madness RX - 5/11
Oregon Trail Rally 5/31-6/1
Are you ready? If not, let this little video of @rallyx_evo tearing it up get you hyped.
