I think if this is your first RWD car it will be useful to tackle problems one at a time, rather than putting all of them on your plate and then hoping that there's one solution to them all.

If you keep the car mostly stock, with camber adjustments, you'll be better able to focus on improving your skills.
This is probably the input I was looking for--appreciate your thought!

Sounds good. I'll probably hold off and learn more about the car as stock for a while. Once I get used to the platform and driving a RWD car spiritedly, I'll look into doing some mods

For some tech articles on suspension...ranging from fairly basic to slightly more advanced...check out our instagram here:
www.instagram.com/theapexfiles

It's not really focused on what brands are good and that type of thing, just terminology and some of the basics so you understand what you're looking at (and can identify what even popular suspension companies get wrong).

Here's a good one to start:

Too much "do as I say, but not as I do"-type of suggestions.

You're only young once.

I'm a firm believer that advice from experience (whether good or bad) can be very helpful, even if it's "do as I say, but not as I do," in nature.


I'm 32, and I wouldn't recommend young kids to smoke. Doesn't change the fact that I smoked from 14-28, but that doesn't make the advice any less valuable/credible.

Go full blast and change whatever bothers you, or even what doesn’t. Power adders, suspension mods, aero bits, wheels, tires, exhaust, aesthetics. Just do it, and if you doesn’t like, remove and sell it.also, you can buy used parts in near future. You can take notes to keep you at bay whenever changing, do some research, talk to people, have fun.

But...it wasn't my first car, and all my mods were systematic and to solve specific track-related problems.

And... The car is now awful to drive on wet roads on street tyres, and it has less lateral grip than stock, on street tyres, and it sucks to start in winter, and it wears out tyres really fast, and it's buzzy on the highway... Ya dig?

Good for you. In 1985, my first car was a 75 Dodge Dart that I paid $600 for with borrowed money. Enjoy it and be safe. AWD for DD and RWD for fun.

You're gonna crash it

Sorry to be a downer, but did anyone warn you yet that you're gonna crash it?

In case not... you're gonna crash it.

Sorry.

The only guys that don't crash their early cars are guys that aren't car enthusiasts and just don't care about driving. But most of them crash in the first few years also.

So, I wouldn't advise it, unless your's or your parent's income is high enough that this is an inconsequential purchase and replacement or higher insurance after a claim isn't a concern.

I mean, an older FRS or BRZ is a great choice... but do you realize you're in the 2022+ section?

But I don't like being a downer. So... GET A BRAND NEW ONE! Rock on!

Keep VSC on, almost impossible to crash. It pulls the car straight and simply will not allow a spin.

Drive at 7/10 on the road and save your 10/10 for when there's a trophy on offer.

You'll be fine.

I don't think he's talking about a used older one, he is probably referring to getting a new 2022.
