love the build so far man, did you have coilovers or springs before the bags? Looking to see how much difference in drivability

Haven't updated in a while. Got tired of shows and decided to try an experiment. Going to be trying out different driving events with the car as-is (except for tires/wheels) and see how that goes.

Thread is over in the track sub-forum: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96309


I'll post pictures here from time to time.

From October AutoX:


Ghetto tape job. Hopefully will get some printed magnetic numbers in the future.


Forgot the wheel lock keys, so got to use my show wheels.


Glad I checked cus I was way underinflated. #deflategate


Lined up at start.


Failing.

So, it's been about 2 years since I've updated this thread. Since then, I've almost completely ditched "cosmetic" mods and was completely taken over by the #trackdaybro bug.

But I've still kept the AirLift system and everything else.

It's been a hell of a journey. I just came back from #Gridlife South a month or so ago over in Atlanta, and it was the best time I've ever had at any automotive event. But enough words, picture dump time.


JDL UEL (chrome coating through JDL), overpipe, and "ultra-quiet" front pipe (catalytic converter + resonator)






BFFs



First track day at Texas World Speedway (RIP), Nov. 2015



Driveway Labs rear diffuser





MotorSport Ranch (MSR) Houston. Always repping the #HappyCorgiRacing stickers.


Wanted a red/black carbon fiber pattern on the interior trim. I originally was planning to do a black with red accent, but it ended up as red with black accent. It's a bit louder than I'd prefer, but I've grown to like it.



v2 of my trunk set up. I sold the OEM Audio+ set up in favor of a full Alpine aftermarket set up. This is a raised floor with paneling to create a false floor. The air set up still resides in the spare tire well (wanted to reuse the work done in v1), but now the subs and amps are integrated into the trunk. It still allows me to store tools and bags for my trackday ventures.



Went with custom velvet red RPF1s as my track wheels for a season. I really liked how bright they were when clean, but even with all the brake dust from the track, they just became a nice darker red/burgundy.


The color after a quick wash off of the brake dust from the track.


MSR Cresson in DFW. With custom racing tape livery


Still make the occasional trips to shows like StanceNation and Wekfest, but the more I go, the more I realize the track is just so much fun. Shows are still fun with the right people though, but I'm not there to "compete" for trophies so...



Ended up installing Tracspec hood louvers to address overheating coilpack issues on track.







I call this "when someone hits your car while daily driving, but insurance takes too long to fix it and your trackday spot is non-refundable"



It's been all track the past 2 years, but the ricer in me still likes a simple and clean build. These cars look great with the stock body lines.


On the way to Road Atlanta for the 3 day #Gridlife South festival.


Picked up new wheels for this season: O.Z. Superleggera


86 Village at Gridlife South. Hopefully we get more 86s next year!
