wow... You guys hold your autox events really close to roads. But I like how you kept it clean!!!!!!
lol thanks. Yeah that particular venue is at the local fairgrounds. They have that big fence on the left side of the pic and there's actually quite a bit of runoff room over there. It' a smaller area than most so the event organizers have to get creative. Usually they have some sort of loop turn on that side to keep speeds down. They also hold drifting events there as well. (as you can see in that one pic, I was inspired to try it as well...haha). Looking forward to trying some events with the new engine to see how much different it is compared to the 1ZZ.

Nice clean and simple set up. I approve

Good call on the 1zz swap IMO
Thanks! 2ZZ is definitely a huge difference from the 1ZZ!

Nice progression so far, a very clean looking Celi. What are you next plans for her?

Thank you!

My next plans include a headlight retrofit, coilover rebuild with Swift springs, possibly a different front lip, and possibly a new hood scoop. Other than that, just keeping up with basic maintenance!
