the compound removes the swirls, the polish removes the left over fine swirls, and the wax protects and glossifys the paint

^^ looks awesome.

I think it adds an element of "semi professionalism" to those who take AutoX and other forms of competition seriously.

Veddy Nice!

Fo sho, though you should be asking Backflip Jeff.

I've been sucking hind tit lately.
Only results wise though. I've been driving my ass off, harder than ever.

Actually, conditions have been less than ideal for my run group each race. That coupled with me still situating my car, it is a process. I have a feeling it will all come together before the year's end.

I will save a slot for you on June 2nd.

next step on the build.

Original radiator finally broke seal after 12 years. Time to upgrade. Should help keep things cool for the future with what is around the corner.

Been eyeing one of those units myself. Super blingy but super functional at the same time.

Koyo is great for the price, I would say best bang for your buck. Not sure how they're bling like, once installed they don't seem flashy to me at all.

CBRD is top notch but comes at a price for their high quality work. Highly recommend them.

Mishimoto is garbage, spend your money on the 2 mentioned above.

I wouldnt get one yet if I was you. Wait until the oem breaks or you start making stupid power. I got one a few months ago.Check with Elementak and P3 before hitting up out of State guys.

*not very blingy once installed.

You get what you pay for. Any time I have opted for the less expensive route it ended up being more expensive in the long run. Buy quality, get quality. There are no short cuts.

Now that it's warmer, I dialed the stiffness up on my coilovers today. I take the on ramp at 70 this morning. Like a banked S-shaped turn at a track (or so I think in my mind). Then I see a cop, back down to 55.

^^Dom, you need to get down here for an auto x. I'm certain it will cost less than a ticket.

That's probably very true. I'll have to check the Auto X schedule. I do want to come down a couple times this summer. I'm thinking fairly soon too.

Had Element Automotive do my mount and balance. Since the wheels were off I also had them install new front wheel hubs and bearings
