Pulsar’s gone. Whatever. Stop sending me emails to tell me I’m whipped. You don’t even know what that means. I’ve done my thing and it’s time to move on. These have been easy decisions… I’m sad to be leaving, but if you knew what I was trading it all for… AE86 is still hanging around. It might stay… we’ll see […]

Pulsar is Gone.


It dumped a bucket of snow last night. Must’ve been like 30cm worth. My travels today took me a short distance out of the city, where I stumbled upon unplowed roads. I never made it to my final destination, because I got sidetracked and ran out of gas. Today has me feeling like the RNN14 is definitely the best car […]

Bah.




Rally-x today. I told Andrew that if I beat him I’d be happy. I always downplay my cars. Truth is, the Pulsar has 100hp more, and studded tires, which probably did a whole bunch on a couple major ice spots on the course. Both of us had a lot to learn about driving.

Gravel FTD



Gearing up for rally-x tomorrow. Installed some Sparco mudflaps, and gave the undercarriage a second coating of rubber. It's amazing how much those two things quiet the car down on an ugly road. The front mudflaps are a pretty hard tune set up though. They're only about 1cm off the ground which means they rub and scrape everywhere. I should have put them a little bit higher, but I want the most efficiency out of them. I'm not into rock chips. They stick about 1" from the body, front and back. The rear ones don't have to do so much more to protect the car though. There's basically no rear over hang. I also didn't want the rear ones low, because they can get caught in the tire and ripped off when backing up, a lot easier than the fronts can. So as you can see... the rear ones sit a lot high, which somehow helps create a raked look. [...]
