yeah, i just found that pic while doing a random search for Fit pics. there are tons of Fit forums that cater to the overseas Fit community, as well as several car clubs that are Fit specific. The Fit is a very popular car overseas, hopefully North America can catch up.=)

We ran our Fits in our backyard test track, which is close to an autocross.
Our cheif A/Xer troinced the Fit with his Mini base. Almost pathetic. And the Fit is classed apparently with the base Mini. Maybe with Hoosiers advantage over street tires. Wonder if thats the reason Mini sales are out the roof and everything else in the toilet.

If you are serious about not modifying your Fit in any way as you previously posted, you will have no chance of a win at an Auto X event, unless every other driver on the track is legally blind. The Central California Stock Class champion, in a Fit for the last two years, is our member mrFroge.

As good as our handling is, in order to compete, the minimum mods that you will need are: a stiffer front anti-sway bar, and stiffer rear shock absorbers (Monroe or Gabriel Air Shocks work best for Auto X).

You can obviously still have fun on a track in a totally stock Fit.
