Got the Sparco set that jack was selling. I really like them. 18x8 with bfg sport comp 2's. Now I just have to figure out how to program the tpms. Does discount do those for free?

Hello

Hello, my name is Brian. I took my 2011 TC to the dealership yesterday for a 25,000 mile check up and ended up driving home with a band new FR-S. I was actually saving up for a 370z but decided to test drive the FR-S while I was waiting for my TC and decided it was a great deal, plus they gave me a pretty good trade in price for the TC.

I was browsing around last night and ran into this website so I thought I would pop in and say hi. I have hopes of upgrading my new car because I would like to get some more horsepower and figured you guys would have some great ideas.

As for me I am 33 and work in an industry that allows me to drive all the newest vehicles. I also just recently moved back to phoenix. I lived here from 2000-2005 and am glad to be back.

June 22nd @ Tucson Kart track HDPE

1. redleader +1
2. ninjun
3. SpyderMS
4. Mattles
5. bignrich
6. 40flash
7. CaptainJack
8. Jasper
9. WithNoLock
10. GotM
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.

I just wanted to put this list up one last time before next weekend. Many of those attending are in Vegas for the weekend, but hopefully people won't forget.
Helpful reminder: bring a helmet, PLENTY of water, and snacks. The track owners have some loaner helmets, but I'd suggest bringing a head cover or something since used helmets tend to be dirty.
Those of you looking for something quick and easy to make your track experience a little better, I'd suggest putting better brake fluid in, bring a tire pressure gauge, and empty everything out of your car that you can before you head to the track. Also make sure you have plenty of gas. I wouldn't suggest anything less than half a tank, preferably 3/4.
