Had a fun time hanging out with the so-cal race team. AutoX on saturday was fun, still learning how to drive my car though!

took it out to streets of willow on sunday and beat on the car a little. It's a small fast track and i had a blast blowing past turbo porsches and audis. Had 1 spinout off track that flat spotted my tires and messed up my front tow. (video will be posted later tonight.) Luke's taking car of getting car back into shape after my accident and ready to head back down to WSIR this Saturday.

On a side note, Alpine's unit shipped today and will be arriving tomorrow. Should have it installed this week.

Car handled great except for my one on-track mistake. Car held strong threw the turns and i was still able to break traction in the straight aways! You should do a track day or make it out to an AutoX event; its a blast!

Ran Buttonwillow this weekend. Major change was the new Forgeline GA3R rims and Toyo R888 tires (295's up front and 305s in the rear) I ordered through Luke at Blu808. Car made such a big improvement. One of the best mods my car has. Last month I ran the same setup except I was running stock rims and tires (Pirelli PZeros) and the fastest lap time was a 2:28. This weekend my best was 2.12...HUGE difference plus the car was holding a lot better through the turns so i was able to keep my speed up. Braking also increased as I'm running a smaller 19" rim all around. Great track day for me, ran in a group of 28 and was ranked second......must be those 2 snails under the car! Anyways here's some pictures from the track.... courtesy of Riddikulus 5Gen (Colleen).

just changed it, i meant 305s in the rear. The rims have been touched up, but not refinished yet, but that doesnt matter if they are being powdercoated. You can take a look at them...they're literally 2 mins from lukes shop. Do you need tires too?

Got my windshield cracked; decided to go to Super Auto Glass because of a recommendation from a friend who had his Porsche broken into.







Took it to Thunderhill the next day and no issues!

They do great work and recommend them to anyone in the area!
