MR2 vs RC51

Believe it or not, my MR2 is about as fast through the curves as my RC51. The MR2 actually corners better but the RC rolls in the straights, so the RC wins in a 20 mile run, but not by much.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

Careful...crossing the double yellow can get you in trouble.

Man, where I live, EVERYONE crosses the double yellow every other turn. That's what makes it so fun.

Cross the double yellow in Indiana and you'll eventually get smoked by Bubba in his Daddy's diesel four wheel drive.

No danger ... he only crosses the line by jumping it.

Well, I have learned to watch inside curves. I upped the rear for quicker steering. Since there isn't much traffic, you are usually pretty safe...till that deer jumps out...lol.

With no cops...double yellow means NOTHING to folks here.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

The MR2 has to cross double yellows to try and gain in curves what it looses in straights. Did I mention that road is my race track?

I have a last of the breed MR2 Turbo T-Bar at work waiting for some (detailing) attention before it's put up for sale. With the exhaust, ECU, boost controller, etc. it has it'll be making around 320 bhp I expect. Goes pretty well and with the wheels & suspension mods it handles good too.
I had one about 13 years ago as a daily driver. Fun up to around 100 mph, at which point the front starts getting a bit too light for my tastes. It wasn't a car I really liked a lot, but there's a following for the turbo models.

RC46, when you junk a bump do you usually brake on the back wheel and stop it moving? Looks like your tire's flat too!

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

Stig, I hear you about the front getting light at over 100. The MR2 is the best car I have ever had. I like it even better than the RX7.

Yeah, while jumping you should always hit both brakes in photo shoots. It makes landing fun at 100mph....lol.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.
