Auto-x

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 […]
