Why saving gas is better for your car than racing

Just saw this on a honda forum. The effects of driving your car too hard will eventually come back to haunt you.

Haha, well, if you do it right it doesn't always end up like that.

Yeah, Driving efficiently

Yeah, Driving efficiently will save money on maintnece so it is 2 times the $$$.

Less money on gas
Less money on repairs

Dumping raw fuel will kill your cat. It happened twice on my old saturn.

Autocross

I've been considering taking the 'Teg for an Autocross spin once a month or so (I doubt my engine will blow like the pic) and maybe promote gassavers.org in the process. What ever happened to those stickers? Even though I'm not looking to win any awards, I miss it, and it keeps the skills sharp. I'd have to run in "modified" or "STS" since the intake has been modded, but oh well. Maybe I can get some friends or the Wife to participate (automatic - so everyone can play)!

what exactly is modified on

what exactly is modified on the intake? is it before or after the throttle body? sts is a safe bet and the pax index isnt much different from dstock anyway. the modified indecies have a pax that is a much larger handicap.

the 2006 rule book is online this year:
here is the rule book you only get bumped into street mod for engine swaps, forced induction, and brake upgrades anyway.

here are the pax indecies:
