    Default Best car for track days?

    Within reasonable budget, what would make the best track car? currently on the look out, something id like to get involved in, not sure where to start? best to go for all rounders?, straight line speed?, fast on corners?

    MX5 would be my choice, or dare I say it something french like a Saxo VTR or 106 GTi, they can make decent track toys once stripped out

    only thing with little turbo cars,is with a thrashing there not gonna be reliable,and you dont want lag out of the corners..

    with a nice little n/a civic,you can have instant power out of the corners,they love being thrashed,there reliable,plenty of parts available cheap!

    yeh 106 gti are good on track...power to weight ftw

    to be fair the 106 gti are supposed to handle great, although they are
    a little under powered
