    You've never broken anything at autocross?

    How? You'd have to hit a light pole or something to break at an autox. It's 60 seconds of abuse and you might get 6 runs with time to cool between. Not exactly what I'd call hard on a car.

    That is good to hear. I bought a new WRX a year ago. Am thinking about dong some autocross with it, but am a bit scared. I use to have a pro ama roadracing license, and am convinced that I can wreck anything...

    Dude you could autox a 1990 Ford Taurus and be fine. It's fun as hell, but really not all that hard on a car.

    Yeah dude don’t worry about it. It’s not bad at all. The worst it does it put some wear on the tires. Iv never not been able to drive the car home, but I have the truck so why not tow my little junker.

    Why me towing my property with my truck triggered some people I have no idea lol. I’ll live my life, you live yours.

    It's not that, it's more the misconception that this stuff is so hard on a vehicle. People are averse to doing because they think they need a race car to do it which makes it difficult to get friends out there doing it instead of just talking about it.
