Running good. The iM seems well versed for this, especially with the added braces

I would love to see a full autocross build. Coils, braces, bars, bushings, etc.

There was a stock tC with racing tires that was killing it too!
From what I heard this weekend, good tires > bracing, suspension

Definitely ! Good tires is the starting point to doing anything. Whether you want a straight up drag car, or you want a track beast, you need darn good tires to begin with.

Spinnin' ain't winnin' !

The stock Toyotires that came with the car. I rec you get racing compound tires if you want to autocross frequently. My tires wore out quickly after 6 runs.

Racing compound tires would go a lot quicker as well, softer compound.
