There are tons of videos on the Facebook page for it. The pictures are even more awesome. The aerial shot with all the cars making 65 and MNM is just awesome. There should be some high-res shots made available early next week.

How the hell did I forget about the event? FML

Anyways, does anyone know about a good mechanics shop around GR? I need to have my car looked at, preferably if they'd do it for free to check it out.

What's wrong with it. I don't think anyone on here takes their car to shops.

I'd be surprised if it was the struts. I have the same thought process as Rob in thinking that it's the tires.

On a side note: I'm parting out my car. Does anyone want anything? 20k mile WRX for those that don't know, hit in the front. A buddy of mine is looking at buying the driveline/suspension/brakes, but the interior (minus the bags) is all clean as ****, including the STi dash and red JDM hazard button.

Wheels made it. 500 bucks for those. Sam has his eyes on them though. If he decides he doesn't want them then they're open to whoever.

I have a FPR, and STi up pipe. 75 bucks for both of those.

I have a full Perrin turbo back, but I really don't want to split that system, not yet anyways.. If I can get my buddy to take the axle back, then I'll sell the downpipe separate.

If you guys both want parts of it then I'll split it. 300 for the down pipe, 200 for the axle back. The mid pipe has dents in it, but is structurally sound, and either of you can take that if you want it.

soo i found out whats going on with my turbo. i pulled the down pipe off and there was oil on the hot side. Then pulled the intake and there was oil there too. So off came the turbo. No shaft play.
I spent a couple days emailing tial(which is the Garrett repair shop here in Michigan). After talking with them, we found that the oil inlet was too big. The one that came with the turbo was .10" dia where it should have been .03". Which ment my turbo was getting more then 3x the amount of oil. When you put that much oil in the turbo it comes out where every it can.
