I joined the The Shop automotive club in Seattle. Its a sweet club which you can meet other car enthusiast. They also have lifts, tools, wash bays, and tire mounting equipment for members. For additional fee you can store your car in their warehouse. I got to check out all the cool cars stored there. Lots of high dollar stuff. Ill take some pictures next time I'm there.

I used the wash bay after joining. it's really nice.


I went out drifting again. Was a really busy day at Spirit Peaks raceway. I was feeling nervous again. But I pushed my nervousness and set out on the track. I finally feel I've crossed over the hump. I was able to do two laps of drifting the full course every turn. It felt great. The seat time is really helping. Excited to continue my progression at the cost of many tires



drift missile breakdown:



Car crossed 6600 miles. Excited to do some track driving this summer. Ive also decided I am going to start doing autocross as well. Just maximum seat time is my goal.
How's your JR dual radiator/ oil cooler holding up? Any issues or kinking in the lines?

no problems at all. It's doing a great job of keeping things cool. I am maxing out at ~230F oil temp.

More photos from Spirit peaks raceway. Great track for drifting. I also realized the winter is a great time to do drifting. Not a lot of other track driving available here in the NW.

Snow day in Seattle!
I attempted to venture out today and find some empty parking lots for some fun. But the Supersports were really struggling in the snow. So I decided to head back home. Not without some photos though.
