You can try to make a street car into an autocrosser or you can do a lot less work to make a race car into a great autocrosser

Very cool. I'd love an enclosed trailer. How much was it?

If you need help setting it up, let me know. I have been towing with WD hitches for 40+ years. :nod:

Mike, I paid too much. I will tell you when I see you.

Dan, where do I start? Are you talking about DIY solution? Or setup that I can buy from a shop, like Orlandi?

Clemson,
there are literally hundreds of WD hitch systems...
some are better than others...
You need to do some research before you just go to Orlandis...check online and Campingworld also, and after you purchase it I can help you will setup and adjustment to make it work properly for you.
