    Wow that's a lot of driving. I'm still just under 78k 5 years this month and I daily driver mine. You must have really long commutes.

    Good thing I get paid mileage for work! Lol

    I've also put 26k on my Mazda 3 since October. And it hasn't been driven in 5 weeks Lmao

    I do some crazy driving for work. Part of being a field rep. Get to go somewhere different everyday. At least the cars I have aren't boring to drive!

    What is it that you do that requires so much driving, male gigolo service?

    Lmao. I do marketing and training for a large cell phone manufacturer. Basically i drive to 5-7 phones stores per day, within 60 miles of my house; help with the merchandising, update them on upcoming promos, train them on the new phones, then on to the next store. Get to go to cool stuff like CES in vegas as well every January, and occasional out of state travel for new phone launch events.

    Nice gig! You know, someone's got to do that job. Might as well be you. At least I know now that if I ever have a cell question, your my guy!

    Suggestions for a nice grippy tire that will hold up to some power on the street without spinning?
    Currently in 255/40/17 hankook rs3.

    Talked to Alex about nt01, and I know he likes them on his car. Also have been looking into R888. Any other suggestions?

    Achilles 123s has a 255 35 17. That is the tire with the most grip for formula drift and they are decent on price as well. Buddy is running them with 600whp in a 2900 lbs 240 and can hook pretty good with same tire width

    Zoom zoom! Nice little pull you did there, you need more traction for sure.

    Installed some rice last night. I'm probably gonna ditch the included brackets and get some APR rods. But that can wait for now. 0823171339a-01.jpeg 0823171339b-01.jpeg 0823171339c-01.jpeg

    Oh, that's not too bad. I've seen a lot worse, especially being in CA which is like rice capital of the world. You have to have a little fun with your car.

    Thats beefy it's past meaty. Wing extension looks good, with all your hardware you're allowed to have it.

    Took a log today on my 255/50/16 ET streets (that's why tire size is 26.04). I actually bought a whiteline anti lift kit to help with the ridiculous tq steer I was suffering from when I had the hankook rs3's... But now with the drag radials, the car just goes straight at WOT, so I'll probably sell the WALK.

    Suffering sticky death again after just 2200 miles since last cleaning my Hpfp... So it's time to switch off of Brad Penn oil and onto something else. Fuel pressure dropped to 300 multiple times throughout the log (I didn't see til I opened the log)... But thank goodness for the secondaries keeping the car from going lean.

    Anywho, talk about a flat tq curve! :)
