Three other local SCCA autocrossers and myself took our cars (3 Miatas and the Avalanche) to this event which is 50% car show and 50% BBQ contest sampling. I don’t any any pics of the BBQ but one of those contestants was DAMN GOOD.

I got nothing, enjoy the pics!

Truex will never become a Nascar champion again if he can't race dirty at a short track

It doesn’t matter if you race Logano clean for all of the race, he raced you dirty in the last corner on the last lap. Stop letting people walk over you and get aggressive. You threw it all away.

Paging E90M3: E36M vert for sale soon

I have no idea if you’re in the market for one, but since you’re looking at E46s...well, here’s an E36.  It’ll be for sale in SC.

NPoCP: For anyone crazy enough to attempt it...

A member on the Miata.net forums is selling their:

Wannabe #brands ambassador? Wannabe #brands ambassador?

I actually know the owner of this Roush through autocrossing and he’s a nice fellow in person but his Facebook posts...damn, man, they better be paying you for these tagged posts. Like, EVERY car-related post of his has ludicrous-amounts of tags on it.

Oh, craigslist... Oh, craigslist...

There’s taking a picture of your computer screen with your phone...and then there’s taking a picture of an actual photograph of “your” car. Bonus points for being really grainy and giving us a glimpse of that bar. Price is acceptable to low CP in my book.

ANYONE IN CHICAGO WANT A $600 NA MIATA WITH A HARDTOP?!

OF COURSE YOU FU**ING WANT ONE! The hardtop alone can be resold for $1k!

Got into an argument with a friend over brake-checking

I don’t care if you’re being tailgated and they’re flashing LED high-beams at you. Brake-checking them isn’t going to improve the situation. If anything, it’ll probably cause them to escalate their road rage. In this day and age who knows how short tempers are to pulling out a gun and getting shot or rammed off the…

Dragoning Oppo Meet 2018: a derp's perspective Dragoning Oppo Meet 2018: a derp's perspective

TL;DR: random person trusts random people from internet, meets said people deep in mountains, doesn’t get harmed and has a fun time. Thank you for hosting this, Ike!

That was good NASCAR That was good NASCAR

It was better than watching IMSA.  I haven’t been that tense for that many laps in a long time!

Who dropped the oil pan plug into the bucket of hot oil? Who dropped the oil pan plug into the bucket of hot oil?

I dropped the oil pan plug into the bucket of hot oil! Luckily, I let the car sit for an hour after arriving at the shop so it didn’t leave any burns on my hand but it was still very uncomfortable feeling around for that pesky bolt!

Why I always hunt... Why I always hunt...

...because I never know when I’ll casually find something rare in the least likely of places! I found this M2 Machines chase Beetle a Walmart nearby the site where I autocrossed today and taught a 16 year-old girl advanced car control (in her Honda Ridgeline) on Saturday. It’s been about 2 or 3 years since I’ve…

So...who's going to the Oppo Meet at the Dragon in a month? So...who's going to the Oppo Meet at the Dragon in a month?

Ike’s Oppo Meet at Tail of the Dragon is in exactly a month and a day. As far as I know, only 5 or 6 people have signed on, not including Ike. I’ve already put down money and days off for this so I’m fully committed, but I’m just unsure what the turnout is going to be like or what’s in-store when we get there. I’m…

Well done Erik Jones! Well done Erik Jones!

Having all the major players minus Truex Jr. taken out allowed for a very exciting finish! Underdogs versus the reigning champ...and an underdog finally got their first win! At Daytona too! I was rooting for Kahne as well because my friend is a huge Kahne fan.  It was a nail-biter for the last 40 laps, wondering when…

Happy 4th of July!

I didn't know these existed: CARS Precision Series I didn't know these existed: CARS Precision Series

I was at an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet and I found these on their shelves. Apparently Disney had a “Precision Series” of the main cast of CARS. Each car comes with what appears to be a keychain tag. I didn’t buy any of them because I’m only collecting Miatas, R33s, and any chase/treasure-hunt diecasts as my 1/1 scale…

...Speaking of Miatas, I would rock these all the way to Radwood! ...Speaking of Miatas, I would rock these all the way to Radwood!

Rays-Mazdaspeed MS-03 wheels. SPLIT-THREE-SPOKE WHEELS. I would totally buy these if it weren’t for the fact shipping alone adds 60% to the buying price. Shipping is $400 and the wheels alone are $683 according to eBay.
