Hmm, I see five possibly heavy wheels, a passenger seat, STB, stereo, half a dash, center console, and 150 lbs of you. Stock brakes? There's some weight there too.

That should be about 200lbs total, that's a big difference. Not that this is all about weight, but thought I'd mention.

I am a big fan of your minimalist interior, its similar to mine and for some reason they're very fun.

I actually have wilwoods (single piece rotors in the front). As for the dash and whatnot, I'm probobly going to keep it all for now. I have no intentions of racing on these wheels either, and I have my old steering wheel as well to use when I race it.

Finally got new tires put on my rear wheels!



I decided to go with the same crappy Falkens as I know they are able to stretch this much...haha These are just play wheels anyways so it doesn't really matter.

yeah we both said the same thing when he showed me the final shots. That was my fault actually. I left the pass seat pushed way forward too. Oh well, next time.

So I've been messing around with launch control and FFS, but can't really get it right- it's very weak. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Yeah, I should have thought of that, now I have much more experience shooting interiors and will get it much better this next shoot.

Good to see new rubber on those wheels man. Can't wait to see the next change

So last Sat I drove down to RI and did the ADSI auto-x event held at the airport at Quonset Point. I even managed to get FTD (the instructors were all faster than me, but their times aren't listed)!

I had an absolute blast out there. I think I manged to get in 15 runs total (I burned a little over a 1/2 tank of fuel).

some of the competition:


waiting at the gate:


Heading down the runway to get to the course:




The camera seemed to have this odd effect which made the gas pedal just want to stick to the floor











Thumbs up to the camera guy :-)



Hanging it out to dry...





and the 3 fastest laps from everyone for the day:

Ported out the inside and shaved the outside of the intake manifold over the past few days.





I'm real curious to see how much of a difference the porting makes on my torque curve. Sometime this summer (when I have time) I'm going to head back to the dyno to see the difference, as well as mess with the cam gears a bit. I'll be sure to post the dyno results.

I just realized I never posted the photos from the Modified Mag. photoshoot, so here they are! Eric Tong was the the photographer. There were some really nice shots that didn't make it into print- Enjoy!

Here's a video that my buddy took following me in his car during one of the runs (he's an instructor for ADSI):
