    My 93 LS has a cloth interior and was made in the US. Despite the stiffer suspension setup and larger wheels and tires, the MX-6 LS was actually faster on an autocross course the the Probe GT. At least all of the SCCA G stock championships were won by the MX-6 and not the Probe.

    yes !!! im not the only one !! i'll have the chance to see which one is more superior since someone with a probe GT is coming out to one of our autoXes.
    IMO though, i like the body lines of the probe more, it looks sportier. id take a probeX6, probe front, MX-6 rear


    106whp 88ft/lbs FTW !!

    Alphanumeric,
    If you are running stock, one thing to remember is those bigger wheels and tires are heavier and take more power to turn. How much I haven't a clue. Also the 225/50-15 or 225/45 -15 tires will fit on the stock size rims.

    There are a very saught after set of wheels for the second generation mx-6's. Those being the FD's. Light in weight and OEM on a RX-7.

    Yes. The BBS wheels on my car are from an earlier RX-7. The reason I wanted to use to them is that they were the same size and offset as the OEM wheels, therefor legal for stock class, but much lighter.

    thanx for the advice !! i've got a set of stocks for autox sitting around in my garage. i've got 205/50/15 falken rt-615s since when i got them i didnt know that i could go up to 225s and stay legal for street tire class i can definitely feel the difference between the 15's (running shoes) and 17's (casuals). when the tires wear out, im looking into a set of rota slipstreams (which ill never run on the street) or FD's. i've heard that FD's need spacers though, is that right ?

    didnt do as well as i'd expect, i kept swinging the rear out and couldn't get used to the car's quicker accelleration (had some fuel system work done a few days before) hopefully i can learn how to handle the extra quickness by next event on aug 25

    I don't have a mx6 but i want to buy one, my question is which one is faster??

    88-92 mx6 GT --> 2400lbs 2.2 4cyl turbo engine 145hp/190tq

    for outright speed, i'd take the 1st gen, but for looks and decent speed, i'd go with a 2nd gen. mine's not that fast in a straight line, and maybe with a better driver could be faster around corners but it's a fun enough drive for me--VRIS FTW !!!
