October Snow Storm

This past October we had a ridiculous snow storm a few days before Halloween. I slept over a friends house an when we woke up there was only about 1/4" of snow on the ground :( Little did we know the fun was about to begin about 4 hours later...

 After eating breakfast and making our way over to my house the snow began to fall at an astonishing rate. Like any AWD lover what did we do? We made our way to the nearest parking lot and had some fun!

Just keep swimming...

Sweet

Merry Christmas!

So I'm gonna take a little break from my usual timeline and make a Christmas post! Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun filled Christmas or Hanukkah however you swing.

The big man in the red suit paid a little visit to my house and dropped off some 6-1/2" Pioneer speakers, and some Subaru OBP spray paint so I can detail some parts of my car.

The girlfriend also came through and got me some 25mm Front and Rear Sways for my car ;) I'm gonna put them in tomorrow and I'll let everyone know how they are. Post a comment on what the big jolly man got you guys this year!

Nothing says Christmas like some lights!

The Drag Strip!

Took the car down to the local track with a bunch of friends and had an awesome time! $20 for a night of runs is well worth it in my book! Made a nice bet with my dad who drives a 2001 BMW 330i that if I won he owes me a new clutch, if he wins I pay for his entry fee. Guess who didn't win :( I was usually about .75 of a second slower than his Bimmer. Better luck next time I guess...

My biggest complaint of the night was my clutch was terrible off the line. It would slip during the launch and cost me a few tenths of a second at the 60'. It also wasn't helping my gear changes. However I was still getting consistently better 60' times then the BMW.

Heres some video and slips :)

Photo Shoot Take 2

A buddy of mine is really into photography. He has some crazy camera and has his own little business going for him. We went to a construction site not to far from me and let the shutter run wild...

Irene...

Over the summer we had a little visitor, her name was Irene. She was quite a bitch and threw my entire week for a spin. A dam near us blew and I spent the better half of the morning with the Rescue Squad evacuating the neighborhood. With trees coming down everywhere and fires starting from said trees falling onto lines it was definitely a crazy scene to be driving around in! But why would that stop me ;)

K.O.

Some Summer Fun

So with summer approaching who doesn't love a little bit of water action? :) After missing a perfect day of jet ski action because I couldn't find a car to take it down to the ramp I decided I needed a trailer hitch. I bought the one you may have seen in other pictures off of eBay for $130 and then the ball and receiver from Home Depot for I forget how much.

After a few hours and ample use of the acetylene torch, ;) we were able to get the hitch on. This made my car into the perfect jet ski transporting machine!

The girlfriend trying her luck at launching the jet ski

The jet ski by the way is a Yamaha 1100 Triple ;) My only complaints about the hitch is that if you have an aftermarket exhaust it will rattle. One of the mounting bar things that the exhaust hangers attach to would hit the hitch making this awful rattling noise at idle and low RPMs. A little bit of grinder action would take care of this but just be weary of it.

Laser Tagging and a New Front End

Got a group of friends together and went up to do some laser tagging near us :) Parked next to a pole with some donut marks left by a friend a few weeks back and couldn't resist the urge to turn into a photographer ;)

HID Install

Little bit of fun happened recently! As anyone whos into cars those stock halogen headlights are no the prettiest things in the world. I ordered the 6000k 35w Raptor Ballasts from DDM Tuning. 


Spent a few hours with my friend installing them with a friend of mine here was the finished product...

Comparison



Looks a lot less blue and more white in real life


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
This is what happens when you use a 100watt headlight on the stock Driving Lights Connector
