Yah it’s that time of year again… but the truth is that I think seriously about World Rally Blue all year round. I am generally always in some state of regret about a past car sale. For quite some time, it was my RN66 truck.  I’ve moved past the loss of my AE86, yet I still regret giving up the […]

Always Blue


When Q and R counted up their past cars and found they had owned 31 and 43 respective projects, it made me realize how inactive my car life is by comparison. 2 BC6s, The Trackick , and now the GDA again are the only official entries to my name. I hold no delusions of catching up with the pace, but […]

Toyota recently announced that in the near future, all of its new vehicles will have advanced semi-autonomous driving features like Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams and adaptive cruise control. I have a fair of experience with similar features from other brands, and admit that for a car that I use every day to go to work, […]

Old Car Feels


A recent work trip took me to Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec. If you haven’t heard of ICAR, I am not surprised.  I myself only discovered ICAR recently in relation to another project I am working on.  The fact that an unrelated work trip took me to the circuit was a happy coincidence. Since motorsports development and relevance has become a big interest of mine, […]

Makeshift Circuit



I am slow to get things done. Things happen pretty fast in my mind – but am much slower getting them on paper, let alone tangible incarnations. The WRX has been sitting since May, and nice weather isn’t the real reason. I am reluctant to make a second attempt at a JDM motor, because this time around the turbo & […]

I have recently been viciously debating the merits of keeping my FR-S stock (or at least street class legal).  Parts have been purchased.  Sleep has been lost.  Friendships have been strained while I, as usual, renege on my promises. Sarcasm? The truth is that the last two years of car life has been blissful… except for the absence of raining […]

    Jonathon Mudge runs his FRS in STX in Monatana, and I almost never beat him 🙁 I actually consider his STX prepped car to be pretty basic and pure. He hasn’t pushed the rules to their limit, but he is still competitive, even on the national level events.

    My point? CS is good. STX is good. Either way, you aren’t going to be accused of building some franken-car. Neither will you be deeply in debt for the build.
