I have a question!

Is your 86 number on the door vinyl or sticker? I'm tired of putting and taking off the number for each track day. haha

They're 4 inch magnetic numbers from SoloTime.

Oh great. Thank you.

This one I assume. Super cheap, wow!

Some of my friends said that the magnetic numbers fly off at the track, but I assume it doesn't, huh? Since you use it all the time.

They've never moved on my car at high speeds. They are very slim and the magnets are high quality. Even 6 and 8 inch numbers don't have any issues staying on.

I'll have to see your car in person at the next big East Coast 86 meet (I know 86Fest is West Coast, but don't know East Coast's version) if you attend those, or I'll just have to make a special trip to one of your smaller, local meets. I just checked and apparently ATL is 13 hours from Mahwah, NJ, so I'll have to make a weekend trip of visiting GA for the first time ever!

This would make it worth the drive: http://www.hookedondriving.com/event...Park__March_14

Too soon, Junior! I'm not heading that way until May!


I have been fantasizing about tracking my car at least a couple of times in my life. Just cost monies. Also I'd definitely want to attend some driving school prior since I'm all about that safety first, ya know?

They have a May 15th and July 17th date at AMP. If I were you I'd go to VIR on June 8th because it's amazing (and closer to NJ).

HPDEs are essentially driving schools if you're in a novice run group with an instructor.

Hmmm... Atlanta, May 15th. I'm leaving Alaska on May 4th, a Monday (yes, Star Wars can be referenced here), and that might actually be perfect timing for me to be on that side of the continent! Just gonna have to anticipate the $300 to sign up. Harder to do when moving, driving cross-country and currently working 32 hours a week, but I might be able to manage it. haha I appreciate the heads up!

Installed my TRD spoiler on Saturday before the WRX Atlanta dyno day at TopSpeed Motorsports on Sunday.

Fitment and paint match are both perfect. I did drill the new holes and secured it with the studs and included nuts so it's 130mph proof.

Love the rubber seal and the inclusion of vinyl stickers for the oem spoiler holes.














I had a great time with some really cool people and amazing cars. Among the many WRX's we were able to enjoy a Gallardo Superleggera, Murcielago Superveloce, built C6 Z06, new Viper, and the icing on the cake which was a few "low boost" 1200whp pulls from the TSM shop GTR which was the most violent machine I've ever seen. 1650whp in high boost drag trim.









Also my Velox/FT86SF Race splitter showed up today! Woot!

Interesting that the peak torque between your E85 tune and a bone stock tune was so close. If a stock car made 167 whp on that dyno, then I don't think the correction factor to a Dynojet is nearly as high as they think. That would put that stock tuned car at 188 whp on a Dynojet which seems very high to me as most gains are from a tune.

Yep. From what I understand after a brief explanation from the owner, Mustangs measure torque and calculate horsepower. Dynojets measure horsepower and calculate torque.
@Bg8780 's car recently was recently EcuTek tuned by TSM and made 190whp on 93 with a header and 2.5" headerback on the same Dynojet my car made 195whp on back in April with E85 and stock front/mid pipe. On the Mustang dyno on Sunday his car made 167whp/132wtq with the same 93 tune and mods. Mind blown.
