Default Hey guys! Noob from DFW area!

Hey guys my name is Christian and I'm 18. I've been a long time lurker here and finally decided on joining the forums and becoming an active member of the community! You will probably find me most around the Suspension forums.

I live in the DFW area in a city called Allen. Some of you might know us for our huge football stadium. I'm still in high school (Preparing for flame) but this is my final year. I have a little racing experience. I've done hundreds of laps at Dallas Karting Complex and driven anything from your 60mph rentals to full on racing shifter karts. I've only been to one autocross so far (Hoping to change that next month) and one track day at MSR Cresson. (Wish I could change that)

I drive a 2002 Blazing Yellow Mica NB. My parents bought this car around 2010 from a dude who beat the body to hell and back. My dad took it from 92k miles to 118k until it was my turn. I learned how to drive in this car. Currently it is pretty close to stock.

Here's my mod list!
-Hard Dog M1 no diagonal Sport bar
-Robbin soft top with defroster window
-Enthuza XR Lightweight Exhaust (Favorite mod)
-Hawk HP+ Pads
-BFG Sport Comp 2 in 205/45/16
-Showa shocks with Hard-S springs (Previous owner changed the Bilsteins, no idea why. Car was optioned with Hard-S package. Showas are showing their age though...)

Enough of this ramble, everyone wants to see pictures right?










So this is my car. Glad to be a member of the forums after so long!

Thank you! I watched a lot of your videos before my first session at MSR. I noticed you're also an instructor for Apex. My instructor was Andrew with a Matte Black S2000. My family is also long time friends with Georg who has helped me out a lot on learning how to work on this car!

Maybe I'll see you out there then! Seeing young people twisting wrenches gives me hope.
