Lol.

They did, but they were filled with ugly looking cars. Cars with no "pizazz." Don't get me wrong, I'm cool as hell with the dudes from Elite and they're awesome drivers, but they have s***ty looking cars. I hate seeing the 240's at "weekly" meets. They always look like Rosie O'donell butt. Only a few exceptions really catch my eye like ZX88's car, whom I've yet to see in person.

Just a tad bit biased after watching a bunch of Option2 vids of sick looking cars going sideways. Most of the cars at ASB had both function AND form going and were also street driven so meh.

No just looked good at the time. And my car is not a drag car, much of a fun toy. My preferred auto sport is drag and I do it time to time, therefore my transmission, tire choice, and neutral camber settings are the way they are.

But my email is posted, lets not jack off all over teddys thread. I know you have an apparent dislike for me, wish I would have know that back in June. None the less, email me if you have an issue

Not all of our cars are 4x4 Status. Even my girlfriends whip has a decent looking stance. I love calling out people who fear driving stiff/slammed on the streets around here. If the civic owners in Lowell can do it..the rest of us can too!

Are you talking about Star? Yea, that track seems to get bogus real fast. It's too bad nothing else is going on around here.

Plus all the unwanteds show up at star..*AHEM I think you folks around here know who I mean..

a lot of the time when people say they don't wanna drive lowered or it's too rough of a ride, it's because they can't afford to buy coilovers in the first place. And I said a lot, not all the time.

Ah yes. This was the life. We were terrorizing the streets on a night-to-night basis, caravaning just to get food or to hit up the local meets. In Socal, there is a meet for every night of the week.





We would have 20 person tables, and do this a few nights per week. Driving into the parking lots was always an interesting task.





Everybody would always come to my house just to hang and whatnot. We'd have get-togethers all the time, and it was great fun.





Then the morning after our outrageous 4th of July party, we trekked out to El Cajon once again for a super sale going on at Panda Garage. Just 4 friends, a large pick-up truck, and a grip of money to spend, we set out for the magical store of JDM parts...

We found some awesome deals there. Josh picked up some JDM zenki signals for $15, Kouki 180sx valences for $90, Bryan and I both picked up some LEGIT Chuki sideskirts for a whopping $90 per pair...



We rushed straight home and had an "install party".





After awhile, I got tired of my 501s. They were cool wheels, but would have been better if they came in a lower offset... So I traded my brand new 5 lug for some new wheels, in 4 lug of course. What a genius plan.



I picked up these Sportmax 002's in 16x8 +0 and threw on the same tires, DZ101 195/50R16 in the front, and some crappy tires in the rear.





Then I finally finished my interior.

















I painted it by scuffing it briefly with sandpaper, then used Rustoleum gloss white in a spray can and layed down about 3 thick coats. I did this with a fan in the car, but no mask.

It's no wonder I got a sinus infection the next day.



I remember taking a shower right after painting the interior with ONLY Fast Orange, the hand cleaning soap you use for heavy grease after working on a car. I used it as a soap and a shampoo, and let me tell you, I felt like absolute crap when I got out of the shower. At least I was semi clean.

Since the old, super cracked dash was already out, I replaced it with this nice clean one, out of my other car. I was selling the black hatch soon anyway, so I didn't really care.





Everything was now in. I was going for the minimalist look, with only necessities of a track car.





And I relocated the disco ball to a better spot.

Our local cruises are very familiar with this. At least 20-30 people at times. It's fun.

It's because a lot of people think S13 Silvia fronts look like Integras.
