Brakes

Changed the brake pads on the scion. They are adorably small next to the old pad from my Mustang

Added loudness

Added loudness

Local muffler shop fabbed up a muffler delete. For $115 it’s a much better deal than buying a bolt on, and it retains all the factory attachments.

It sounds now. A little boomy around 3-4k so I may go back and have a resonator added, but for now I’m just glad I can hear something.

Oops

Oops

Rallycrossed the subaion today. It didn’t go particularly well.

Started out by dressing up my car for the occasion.

Then my fender liner ripped out

I caught the run on camera. At around the 30 second mark, I hit the mud and you hear a loud crashy noise. Then I slo-mo’d the video where you can see my poor fender liner laying on course.

Luckily it appears largely intact. Ordered some...

Wichitoppomeet LA: Z4M Edition

Wichitoppomeet LA: Z4M Edition

his past weekend a few wichitoppos and I went out to LA for a pseudo-bachelor party. I rented a Z4M off of Turo. After driving nearly 400 miles in it and then returning to my FRS in Wichita I can safely say I like the Scion more.

The Z4M is an intriguing car. Relatively lightweight rear wheel drive liftback coupe with the highly praised S54 6 cylinder out of an M3. The engine is certainly the...

Have you ever seen one of those charity basketball games where old pros go out and play a relaxed game of basketball to support feeding the cancer stricken homeless?

You see their names on the list of participants and remember what it was like to watch them play. You tell your friends you’re going and swap stories about their best plays and greatest moments. You go to the event, eager to see...

I'm feeling the call of the 911

I'm feeling the call of the 911

I don’t really know why, but I’m lusting over the thought of a 911 as a ‘next’ car.

I think a lot of it is because I’m a huge fan of Salomondrin and his 911R is pretty incredible

It’s not like I’ve never been a fan of Porsche. I’ve always liked some of their cars but I never quite saw the appeal of the 911 over the Cayman. It’s always felt a bit overvalued: a top spec car only because the...

Do you like silver mustangs?

Do you like silver mustangs?

Good news! You can get a silver Mustang calendar with YOUR MUSTANG IN IT for $45

This email was from the Silver Mustang Registry. I am a member.

I’m kinda tempted to make this a picture in the calendar, but not enough to pay $45

I bought a Jalop Bike

I bought a Jalop Bike

A fixie! It’s basically the most jalop type of bicycle: simple, connected, lightweight, easy to modify

I’ve already ordered my first mods...I don’t like the saddle on it much and the pedals don’t have sufficient holes for straps so I bought a new saddle and new pedals.

‘What’s a fixie?’ you said? Fixed gear, single speed. There’s no coasting and no gear shifting, just a cog fixed to the pedals...

Interesting read about the Lincoln Continental

Interesting read about the Lincoln Continental

I know I have a reputation of being some die-hard GM fanboy that hates all Ford products, but this agrees with a lot of my thoughts on the new Continental.

EDIT: Searched the forum, supposedly there is a TSB. Hopefully it’ll get fixed. Too bad I can’t get anywhere with my speaker noise issue...

For third time I’ve gotten a CEL indicating ‘random misfire on startup’. The first time was at a dealer after getting some services, they reset the code and sent me on my way. Second time was at another dealer after an oil change. That time I ignored it,...
