One way to get more door opening space from inside the car is to put the seat all the way back. As the door opens the opening is wider the farther back you go.

Stock tires on a track in the rain will be perfect for teaching you car control. More people should do that.

86 is faster lap times with better tires as mentioned a few times in this thread. Hustling a FWD car around the track is a lot different than RWD. I think you're waaaayyy overthinking this. :bonk:

FWD Coupe or RWD sportscar. Put the right tires on the 86 and the Honda would not be victorious with the lap time. I DO like the SI but I like the 86 much more. I had a 996 GT3 and the FRS reminds me...

Keeping it stock for your first few go outs is a smart move. With the stock tires you'll get to understand the slip angles at a much lower speed and get used to the overall, basic feel.

1) Other drivers in SUV's not seeing me
