    Mirages of the Ozarks

    Ive seen a few around town and was wondering if any of you are on here. So if you live in the Springfield MO area let's try and organize a meet. I'd really like to turn my Mirage into a rally racer some day, maybe some of you could help me with that.

    Some wider tires and a rear sway bar ought to help with your racing aspirations. I suggest looking into some used rims from a Mini Cooper and a Daox rear anti-sway bar.

    Hope your meet works out.

    You could get some wider rims and semi slick toyo tires. Ideally, some all season touring tires will be best for a daily.

    I was on my way to Springfield, MO to pick up a unicorn '15 ES 5MT in Black when Covid hit and everything went on lockdown. Asked the girl to please hold it for me until things opened back up (deposit offered even) and alas she sold it...
