^^hot damn.

Well lets see...first I will be acquiring another RD1 from nyne, this one's a 5spd 1.8 liter that I will be turboing hopefully spring or summertime with the speedfactor extreme kit. I will also be having everything from my current tib swapped onto it and the whole car painted black (its blue right now). Also having the Zefiro hood put on and getting some new wheels, gonna lower it and hopefully I will also be able to afford the Sparco seats. Also Im gonna start working on my system as soon as I get the custom box from JAWS021. Other than that...well thats gonna be it for now, unless I get a better job, which hopefully I will.

My current tib will become a beater with stock wheels and body. Sucks for it :lol:

And next year I'll definetly be up there more for shows. I will definetly be back again for Hyundai Sunday.

^^^ Yeah Marc, you'd have a hard time doing all that in parking lot of your apt. building *lol*.

As for me, the only thing I'm doing to my car this winter is continue to drive it into the ground.

[ricer]Dude, it'll be SO awesome! Like, with a bad clutch and worn synchros and rust and bad paint and no clearcoat on the spoiler. It's gonna be the coolest car EVAR![/ricer}

Marc, yeah, I'll totally give you a hand with the swap. I've never done anything that major with a car, but it's something I want to try. Let me know when you're gonna do it. 8D

I second the E-braking... though i prefer industrial areas at 4 am. at least you can practice cornering while in a skid. Parking lots are fun but with the FF you are best off doing the reverse doughnuts.:)

He changed dealerships from Oakville to Burlington. He doesn't have a pc on his desk anylonger but I think he still tries to get online once in a while. It'll probably be a few more weeks before we replace ours at home. Then he'll be back to post-whoring before you know it! ;):
