Past Projects

In the fall of 2001 Ryan and I started assembling and modifying cars together.  All started in different forms, some from scratch, others from near full build requiring only tweaking and tuning.  Nevertheless, all of these cars have been ours… we have a tendency to go through a lot:  lots that never even made mention here, and some that I spent hours writing and thinking about.  It is some form of A.D.D…. really.  In the first few years after we teamed up, neither of us managed to make it through a single season with one car.  They came and went. Mostly it was because we liked to dream, but it was also partly because there was always someone willing to buy.  Cash just looks so good.

Note: These charts are for fun.  Don’t confuse them for us being hard core and bad ass.  Check it out.

IMO the SCCA’s dealing with the FRS/BRZ twins in street class has been a bit of a cluster fuck.  Optional TRD suspension packages that were supposedly port installed (although no one ever saw a case when they weren’t dealer installed) really messed up the perceived balance between the twins and created a lot of controversy.  The optional parts almost certainly […]

More Changes…

One of my quiet and distant auto senpai once told me that modding cars was a game for children.   Being a child at the time, I took this as old man talk.  His logic was the following… How can the engineering resources of even the greatest tuning company possibly compete with those of a multi-billion dollar company like Porsche? […]

Car Life Flavour Turned Vanilla

This website becomes less and less relevant to me but I think it’s worthwhile making some notes on the car and set up after a relatively unsuccessful two-day event this past weekend.  The annual WCMA regional solo event visited our lot at the Calgary Airport.  With between seventy and eighty drivers, I finished up 12th overall (?!? combined results don’t […]

Finally A Solo Event

It’s spring, and my fourth season with the FR-S begins… The fact that I’m still driving the car seems amazing in itself.  When I bought the car I planned on keeping it forever, but I sure as hell didn’t plan on keeping it stock. As it is though, it has largely impressed and I have seen little need to spend money […]

2017 Season Prep



This 5×100 wheel thing is getting me down… that and the solo regulations which I’ve decided to abide by which place my FRS in CS, and also restrict me to 7J width.  To date, a set of Enkei RS-III circa 1995 are the most interesting thing I’ve found, but I haven’t even gotten them on the car yet, and I’m […]

A Wheel Project?


I’ve wondered a few times about putting fifteen on the FR-S. Not only do I think they look make the car look better (or at least different) but 15″ winter rubber comes in some pretty great sizes and is really really cheap. However, now almost February, it feels like winter is about over, and I’ve lost all interest in using the FRS on […]
