1Cor10:23 | Whiteout FR-S | Form Follows Function Build

**Work in Progress - photos inbound!**



So I've finally decided to start a journal to document all the things that have happened to my FR-S. Whether it's mods, maintenance, or boo-boos, wanted to have a place to keep her complete history. Starting a bit late into the game so will have a bit of a black log on details/pics.

|Background|

Purchases in July 2013 with a build date of April 2013. This is my first MT car and also first new vehicle (some prior new-to-me cars).

|Theme|

Someone mentioned it on the forum before (name escapes me now) but essentially, this individual offered some great advice - your build should have a theme to keep your mods consistent. It's easy to get sidetracked with all the fabulous parts coming out for this platform you might go down a path which you didn't really intend to.

For me, the car is my DD but I also intend on attending the occasional track day / HPDE. As for mods - I find the car is beautiful just the way it is and will focus on parts that affect performance as opposed to aesthetics. I'm pretty crazy about symmetry and fit and most aftermarket parts just don't do it for me. Heck, OEM replacements sometimes don't even fit well depending on who you get to do the task.

September, 2014 - Open Lapping @ TMP - 126.1

June 6th, 2014 - Hanson HPDE @ Mosport DDT



All taped up and ready to go (unnecessary for how clean the new track was!)

Last session around the track. Lots to improve on but much better than earlier in the day.

How do you like your G1W dashcam? Size, video quality (can you see plate numbers?), etc.). I'm looking for a dashcam, too, but not sure which one to get.

Hmm once you have this installed I wanna check out your strut clearance in person with whatever camber you get

For the price, likely nothing better out there, video quality is great. Be sure to get a class 4 or 6 card only, class 10 makes it crash on long drives - likely error in erasing and re-writing.

It can be found for ~$60 or less online.

I love that your name is a bible verse and that it lends it's hand to this project.

God bless!

Glad someone noticed! Got it right on my shifter, a good reminder.

Was able to get -1.26 on each side. Shop said doubling up could get 1.5+ for sure. I'll run it as is for now since I'm only really doing it for closer to even wear at the track. Likely coils for next season.
