Wheel chocks are critical for safety, especially on a slope.

Got P3 in my time attack class last saturday. Not bad I guess considering it was my first time at this track and the rest of competitors were running exclusively tarmac rally tires (Michelin M20s, Pirelli RKs, Z205s etc) while I was on two year old worn R888Rs.

Drove it to work, threw a P0300 code. 40k on the stock coil packs, 30k on the NGK race plugs. Looks like it is time to replace packs and plugs.

Thatís exactly what I did. Using chocks and carefully getting the car on stands. Since I have the fumoto valve now, I will be able to quickly do the change at work . I couldnít carry the jack but have the Cusco low ramps and can use them for quick oil changes.

Anyway, suggestions I got last time from all of you guys helped me a lot for the oil and tire change with the slope we have.

Those Esco stands are pretty sweet! I've been threatening to get a pair but I already have three sets of perfectly good uncool ones.

parked it in the back 40(') to make space in the garage to work on changing up my garage toolbox to a work toolbox. turns out it'll fit entirely behind the garage, but then it freaks me out thinking someone lifted it over the fence.

I'm just impressed you can drive on grass without getting stuck.

sure, but it's worse now. this was in the morning when it was consolidated enough to get the car out. now all of those piles exploded across the entire floor as i grabbed bits and bobs and chucked other stuff out of the tool box. i've ran out of boxes.
