I took the R to its first autocross earlier this week on monday, Had a blast it was a practice day so lots of runs <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> , the course was pretty fast I ran it in 54.6. I was there with my sister and her boyfriend in their Evo 9 MR he ran a low 48. He has a few thousand in mods for the Evo, The characteristics between the two cars was huge. So my question being are mods for the R really worth it, Or would it be better to get an older Volvo without all the computers to mod and keep the R for a daily drive? I've been looking at first gen v70Rs I really like them in sapphron, really love that color.<p>Thanks for the input,<br>David

Re: For the track! (Rally_Junky)

Unless you want to gut it, the R is really heavy. Starting with something very heavy and trying to take tight turns at high speed is difficult.
