Advisory: Penske Scion of Rancho Santa Margarita, for reasons unknownst to me because they have ignored my request for a full vehicle service log, stripped two bolts holding the underpanel and marred the remaining with an impact gun. I cannot determine what would prompt service beneath a brand new vehicle prior to my purchase. Additionally, they were persistent in trying to charge for an alarm system that wasn't even installed, and which I had opposed the purchase of the entire time.

Brand new; also, how I usually park to avoid door dings.


Lights.


Cooling Off. Check out the janky TrakkTape job.



With @Unleashed and @CSG Mike.


Project Mu goodness.



WedsSports TC105Ns and Hankook R-S3s.

@CSG Mike and @CSG David provided me with the opporunity to attend the second round of the Berk Technology FT86Cup at Willow Springs International Raceway on April 20, 2013 with Extreme Speed Track Events. It was great being out there with other enthusiasts, albeit far more experienced than myself. I appreciated being able to take in some knowledge by way of ride-alongs (CSG BRZ & S2000), instruction and conversing with other like-minded owners. Unforunately, I didn't have the opportunity to install my new pads, SS lines and fluids, but I still managed to have a lot of fun experiencing the track in the beginner group.

Here are my slow times as a result of being stuck in the middle of the pack. I failed to remember to pull to the side and ask for a gap to get some better times around the track.

The Bridgestone Turanzas started slipping after 3 laps, so I pulled off the track after lap 6. I was glad I did, because there were three accidents immediately following my exit: a Corvette went on an excursion off the track and punched a hole in the fence before landing in the parking lot; a Camaro took a turn a little too hard and upset his accelerometer, prompting the side curtain airbags to deploy and OnStar to call in; and a 350Z (?) skirted off the track.

I'm definitely itching to go out again with some better tires and knowledge of the track.

@CSG Mike: The car looks too stock still since the majority of my purchases have been internal. I'll put up some more pictures after I get my wheels and tires from you. Maybe something from Tein, too. :P

Special thanks to @CSG David and @CSG Mike for getting the WedsSports TC105Ns and Hankook R-S3s to me in quick fashion. I can't wait to throw down on the suspension next.

I had the Kartboy short throw shifter installed by @Corner3garage yesterday evening and am extremely pleased. Shifting is delightfully short and solid. The shifter sits lower and the reverse lockout spring is firmer, but I find that to be assuring. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.

No, thank you! It was my pleasure. I'm always here to help.

I'm going to be posting something up for a week-long Black Friday deal starting later today that you'll be interested in. Tons of car bling!

Totally is! I need to get you down for instruction too! I really should adjust my clutch pedal so it sits a little further back - I feel the engagement points don't match up.
