Very nice. Where did you get the gauge cluster faces from?

Finally had the time for the Fumoto valve, changed the oil (Idemitsu) and the filters. I was a little concerned due the slope but everything went smoothly.

Her favorite shoes are also on!

Finally got round to booking my BRZeeeeee in to get the KW V3s setup as at the moment it's running with the KW "out of thd box" set-up which is too low for me.. Decided to also have the Superpro rear suspension arms and the toe links installed.. Just curious to see what the extra rear camber adjustment does to the car's handling... The front camber bolts were definitely noticed, sharper turn-in.

So you didn't manage to talk to the guy across the road about using his nice flat driveway?

To be honest I didnít want to bother both of them. Everyday they have 2-3 cars. Was a little worried but now I am very OK to do my basic maintenance here.

My driveway has a much steeper incline that yours,
I have kept 2 pieces of good size 1/4 cut logs just to block any movement when doing seasonal tire changes,
seems to have worked for past 20 years as I can still write about it.
Any serious under car work I do in my very narrow garage.

The incline driveways get you quite paranoid and im always rechecking if I enabled the Parking brake when the car is running before I get outÖ

If you have that kind space, why not go with ramps?

My driveway has the same incline angle as my ramps. So with the car facing downhill on the ramps, it's level to do oil change.

Those nifty jack stands probably help too. I've never seen a style with those kinds of feet.

I don't recommend ramps. The few I've tried using loved shooting out at random times during the loading/ unloading process. On vehicles with ample ground clearance

A jack and stands is slower but more predictable.

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.
