Kind words, thank you!

Yes, drove it to work today. It's too much fun not to drive daily. Over 73K on the ODO now.

The stock brakes are holding up amazingly well with the upgrades I've done: Winmax W3 all around, SS line, DBA T5000 in front, GS MCB, Motul 660. I'm getting close to a year out of the front pads even with tons of AutoXing and lots of daily miles. The rears are a year and a half old and have TONS of meat left.

Are you still planning on using the car as your DD after picking up the sponsors and the new wrap/exhaust? How about brakes? Looks like the stock brakes are holding up great even with the boost, curious how often you have swapped brake pads with the amount of AutoX you participate in? The one thing I have yet to do myself in my own garage on any car.

At the end of the day though, fantastic, and definitely an inspiration.

2nd place, missed 1st by 0.036 after clipping a cone. Here's the video from my fastest run with a cone.

Fastest run today, would have won if it weren't for those pesky cones. Love the @delicioustuning E85 kit with the 75mm pulley on the Innovate kit.

Managed to take my first win in the LA region yesterday in Street Modified. I think I managed to somehow end up in 4th gear across the finish, LOL.

So Bob, I think this year will be my last in STX. I'm going to aim at getting the JRSC, a new set of wheels with some Hoosiers, SPL rear LCA's, and an OSG diff. I figured you're having too much fun out there all by yourself, and want to join in on the SM party.
