I need some help, and I will be posting this on a few different threads, seeing how some haven't had a poster on them in over a year...

I am a high school senior and went to Team O'Neil's Rally School last summer and caught the rally bug. As of right now, rallycross seems like the cheapest way to go. There are two cars for sale near me locally, a 1986 Toyota MK1 MR2, and a NA Miata. I already have a daily driver, so practicallity is not really an issue, but I would prefer to be able to drive to and from the rallycross, and not need a trailer/dolly. I have not been able to get a close look at either car yet, so I know rust might be an issue. All that I really care about is how cheap parts will be, what will be the most reliable, and what will be the most competitive in the NER rallycross.

Bottom line is that any insight will be greatly appreciated, and all are welcome to throw in their two cents on this one.

Thank you all!

For just rallycross, I would personally go with the Miata. They are great cars, and dominant in SR and PR divisions. Only downfall is you have to get a factory Mazda hardtop for them. Depending on your area, they can be beau-coup money to source.
