Had a friend help me sort out the wiring for the lighting of the new gauge cluster face. And by "help me" I mean he did the whole thing lol. I am completely useless when it comes to electrics. But now I can see what the needles are pointing to at night!

Drove it up to the mountains to go hiking. Gave up halfway up the mountain and got sub sandwiches instead.

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.

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

Love that seat.

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.
