Default Hey guys

I've been a member here for a while, but don't visit the site much. I occasionally follow links from cr.net and read something here, which is how I ended up here tonight.
I started reading some posts in the Shock Tech 101 thread and was impressed. Cr.net is a fun place to hang out, but I'm a little tired of the Raceland this and Sportmaxx that crap. Maybe I'll start kicking it on here a bit more, but mostly I'll just be lurking and gathering technical info.

Here are a few pics of my '90 that just hit 100,000 miles the other day. It has a roll bar that I built with a few friends, a Randall CAI, and some Porterfield sport pads. Other than that it's basically stock.

Welcome to the dark side. Where sportmaxx<daises<6ul. Keep it NA until you have the budget for a proper turbo. Work on your brakes, wheels, tires, and suspension first.

Reading that again it sounds like I think you're stupid. I'm sure you already know what to do. Move along.

Hey Curly. I don't know if we actually met, but we were both present at one of the weak Sonic hard park meets last summer.

Were you the barefoot hippy who lives in Corvallis and took off before the drive?

Haha, yeah that was me, but I did go on the drive. I've never been called a hippy before, but I was barefoot and sporting a beard, so I guess it fits.

Everyone from Corvallis is a hippy. That was a fun drive. I haven't had that much fun outside of a track day.

Welcome. I think I met you at the Corksport dyno day last year. If not, I know you at least took a great picture of my car sitting on the dyno at that event. For some reason it's one of my favorites, thanks.
