the re92's will be chewed up quick fast and in a hurry. I would not worry about that too much though, just save up for new tires, I would NEVER put the re92's back on after they go the first time...I would go with the falken azenis(what I use) or maybe even the bridgestone potenza re01-r's. but it is up to you what you do ultimately, just be safe and have fun

Wow, it can turn well too?

you can drive with a learners permit as long as an adult is riding with you.

the falken rt615s and the brigdstone reo1rs like metros said are regarded as some of the best street tires including cost/grip since both are relatively cheap.

im 17 and race autox pretty religiously so i know where your coming from being a kid. like everyone said though the people are all super nice and very helpful.

Theres about 3 teenagers in my region. one is 15 with his learners permit ones this 17 yera old girl whos a babe and drives an rx8 and theres me with my evo. the girl in the rx8 and i always screw around and poke fun at eachother.

see if you can get a friend to come out with you in there car, then you wont feel so alone i you are shy.

good luck man.

02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

Actually, i would consider upgrading brake pads. But everyone pretty much hit it on the head.

Strongly agreed, there is no harm in the ability to break faster with slower wear on pads. Plus they are relatively inexpensive.

Stock class upgrade order, based on my what I've learned:
High Performance Tires (cheap route = falken azenis, more expensive is get stock size rims with racing compound tires)
Short Shifter
Carbon Brake pads
Air Filter
Catback Exhaust

This is based on cost, effectiveness, and general practicality.
