As you can tell from the mod’s list, engine power isn’t the most important part (to certain extend) to be fast in autocross. Right suspension setup, brake pads & rotors, lightweight wheels & right width tires. I can’t wait to see next year’s 86EXPO autocross to see how much everyone have improve and what different setup/upgrades are done to the FRS/BRZ.
