I recorded this yesterday at the Grand Strand Model Rail Road Club in Myrtle Beach, SC. I just so happened to meet the admin of their Facebook group and he accepted my request: to run my GoPro Hero2 on my six-axle lowboy flatcar. I had to record this in portrait mode since the GoPro is too wide to fit clear the…

My friend's E46 M3 in M3 GTS orange is for sale on BAT My friend's E46 M3 in M3 GTS orange is for sale on BAT

Paging E90M3, I believe you were looking for a E46, weren’t you? This one is in Lexington, SC. The car is nice, I’ve been around it a few times. It does well in autocross but is taken care of outside of those events. Yes, it’s a manual.

LaLD'ing for the holidays! LaLD'ing for the holidays!

The company I work for is hosting a Christmas Party tomorrow night and they’re asking for everyone to bring toy donations to go to a good cause. Not really wanting to spend money on new toys, I’ve decided to give those kids a cool present they may appreciate: old un-opened Hot Wheels from nearly a decade ago! Two…

[Update: I went back, looked under the passenger-front corner where it had taken a hit, and the frame is slightly bent. NOPE. And that ends that!]

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.

Oh no...Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach has begun! Oh no...Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach has begun!

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…
