I need to order new brakes, probably gonna go for Winmax W3s and some centric blank rotors. Gonna change oil tomorrow as well most likely.


I spent some time in GA... I faintly remember a "mountain" called, "stone mountain" - are there bigger mountains?

Stone Mountain is not really a mountain but a quartz monadnock near Atlanta. Basically a stand alone quartz outcropping, just happens to be very big (and now controversial because of the carving of Confederate leaders on its face)

The Southern end of the Appalachian Mountains is in extreme North Georgia, and the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. It's also a short drive from Atlanta to the mountains of NC (including Dragon's Tail)

Havenít installed yet, but got my new NRG Ultra Prisma seat from iRace in Ontario. This seat is so much more comfortable to me than the stock FRS seat. My shoulders fit the bolsters, the stock ones dig into the back of my armpits.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...1192f2b39a.jpg

Curious, what size did you get, and what is your height/weight if you don't mind my asking.

Love that seat.

5'8", 180 lbs with a 34" waist. The seat is a large, and pretty comfortable, still waiting on my Planted base for it though.

Not today, but I've gotten some more work done over the past few weeks. Replaced the gauge cluster face, replaced the steering wheel, installed a Torque Solution short shifter, replaced almost all of the silver interior trim with black OEM, swapped in the VLAND headlights, installed bumper buttons to eliminate bumper sag, finally got the Tomei UEL header and OFT that I ordered in August, installed the header, and flashed the ECU.

Up next is pulling the headlights back out and replacing the halogen bulbs with HID since visibility is absolutely horrendous even with good halogens.
