Default New to Raleigh

I've been reading since 07 so I guess it's time for an introduction.

1991 Silverstone formally owned by another forum member.

Manual steering and windows w/ AC

I've had it since 2006 and used to drive it hard on Virginia mountain roads around Lexington every single day.

In the past year I've moved to Raleigh and done the following work:

JRSC w/ bipes (it was really inexpensive and has enough power for now)
Exceedy stage one clutch and PP
replace transmission
LSD swap to '97 4.1

The car has:
Hard dog Hard Core Hardtop double diag
Brainstorm duals
R-package bilsteins (looking to change - too hard for in town)
Kosei K1 TS

Just got it out of the garage after doing all the driveline work over the winter. I need to change out the suspension to something not as hard and then I would like to take advantage of some of the many autox events here as well as VIR.

If anyone in Raleigh needs help on a project I'd be happy to help!

Thanks guys!

na8 - I am interested in the IC but have to wait on car projects until I get a garage, which should be in march sometime.

Is anyone doing hpde or autox here? I've checked out Tarheel and triad sports car club's sites. I plan on checking out (as a spectator) at least one of their events in July and possibly the Mazda driver's event at VIR in June.

na8 and Justin, I'd be interested in seeing your MS setups sometime.

wiahwibby, good luck with the build - I'm good for some wrenching if you need it.

I autox quite a bit. I went to Danville last weekend, and maybe going to the one at CMP on Monday. You'll find me at every Triad event in either the orange Miata or purple Protege. I normally don't do Tarheel events because of the way they do their run groups.

I'll be glad to show you my MS setup sometime.
