<Heavy breathing intensifies>

Forgot to share some of these photos with you guys from last Friday.

An honest to god Sport Quattro is one of the more awesome and impressive cars I’ve ever seen in the sheetmetal. I think the car is owned by the guy who owns Dirtfish. Surprisingly, that is a factory color though not too many were made in green.

There were some other cars there as well, but they, while cool, weren’t...

My Summer Car

My Summer Car

You guys...uh see this over on Kotaku?

Indie game made by a finnish guy about drinking beer and fixing up and old car in the early 90's

The designer says this about his game:

"This game is all about realism. Not about fantasy of driving games... driving a car and fixing a car. This is not fantasy game, this is realism game. And what games like Gran Turismo and Forza and Assetto Corsa and...

I have discovered peak short fashion

Look at these shorts.

I just....i want to know how this conversation went.

“hey. People are always putting cars on clothing items, but nobody ever puts car interiors on clothing items!”

“Well shit man, why not? I’m excited by car interiors! Lets do it! What do we have?”


“Uhm, well my sentra is too pedestrian, but i’m borrowing my mom’s Avalon today”


“2013 Toyota Avalon?!??! What could possibly be...

I (helped) make a thing: Forza Drift Update/Angle kits

I (helped) make a thing: Forza Drift Update/Angle kits

Has anyone been playing with the new angle kits in Forza? I’m pretty proud of how they turned out. The goal when making them, was to have people be able to jump in and start drifting without too much adjustment. I think we’ve met that goal, and i think the new suspension makes it easier for inexperienced players to pick up drifting. At the same time, i’d like to think its also made drifting...

The weirdest thing I saw at Formula Drift was this Mazda Swapped Porsche

The weirdest thing I saw at Formula Drift was this Mazda Swapped Porsche

I dont know the story on this thing. I’m assuming its the 2.5 from the MX-6/Probe with a turbocharger? I wish i’d looked to see if it was a manual, because i have no clue what’s going on for transmission here. I can’t think of any north/south mazda V6's.

Drove my buddies vintage AMG..after the engine swap

Drove my buddies vintage AMG..after the engine swap

A while ago, my friend bought this C43 with close to 300K on the odometer. He dailied it for a bit before the transmission crapped out. Knowing this was an eventuality, he had a contemporary E55 engine and drivetrain ready to go. He had just finished it when i got to his house, so i offered to wash it in exchange for a chance to drive the beast.

It drove really well and was much faster than my...

Video from last weekends Lemons race

Video from last weekends Lemons race

I got back from Sonoma Raceway the other day after driving in the 24 Hours of Lemons and pulled the video from one of my stints. I didn’t cut anything out, other than a couple of caution flags, so you’ll get to see me:

1. Completely forget how to shift gears (around the 15 minute mark, for 2 whole turns)

2. Run off the track while no one was around as i was trying to set a fast lap. (end of the...

Catastrophic Brake Failure

Catastrophic Brake Failure

The other kind of “melted a piston”

Circular part of the pad was inside the piston when we pulled it apart.

Time to either invest in swapping to S10 knuckles or....maybe just...brake less.

My Friend showed me around his swanky social club yesterday.

My Friend showed me around his swanky social club yesterday.

Its cars. Its all cars.

‘The Shop’ as its know, is basically for people to work on and store their cars. I was very impressed with the number and variety (because lots of different owners) that were on display there. Also the food was good. The front of the house is basically just a restaurant open to everyone, with windows that look out on to the collection. So if you’re from Seattle, i...

Traxxas Slash fun times.

Traxxas Slash fun times.

Hey guys, a few weeks ago I bought a new RC car, a Traxxas Slash. It's my first trophy truck style RC (I also own a rock crawler and a drifter.)

First impressions are that it's friggin fast. Like twice the speed of my drift car. It can also handle a beating. I've already crashed it a ton of times and driven it through numerous puddles.

This video is mostly my friend driving on our first couple...

Just saw a wrecked '15 mustang

No pics, I was on the highway. Didn't look too bad (the car looked structurally ok) but the whole left side of the car was messed up pretty good.

RC Rock crawling

RC Rock crawling

A good friend of mine recently got an Axial Wraith and in the last month or so, we've managed to find a few great places to crawl. The Wraith is surprisingly scale in a lot of ways, despite being modeled after a goofy rock buggy.

Rock crawling is like the "puzzle genre" of the autosports world. It's fun to be able to get a taste of the unique challenge it presents, without having to spend...

Pretty cool little movie

Pretty cool little movie

Seen around Seattle: WTF middle of the woods edition

Seen around Seattle: WTF middle of the woods edition

There's something deeply ironic about a "Move Over" sticker plastered on the windshield of car that looks like it was destroyed in a head on collision.

I don't know the story of this car, but it was about 6 or 7 miles down a one lane gravel road, all smashed up and with its plates removed.

I really wanted to make a video of me jumping that thing with my RC car, but there wasn't quite enough...
