  1. Weekend covid project! My alternate rear differential (locked 4:10) was sandblasted bare and starting to rust... why not go for the Schnitzer gold again?! It’s a fast color I’m sure of it! Anyways looks clean now, ready to store and swap in when I feel I need it again.
  2. THese are not from frank. I have bought 2 sets of wheels from Frank, the first time it went sloothly just a bit slow. The second time it was my super exepnsive BBS set and it too 9 months.....I thought he scammed me....but eventually he came through. On both sets the work is flawless. Sorry to hear you had issues with him.

They are super lightweight coming in at 8.9lbs. !! Real Magnesium centers, beautifully polished lips and white powder coated centers. All new hardware of course. I put them on my car a total of 5 times. 5 events and I only used them on Saturdays which means they are basically as MINT as they could be. Also included are new old stock Real RONAL center caps.

  4. PS.... The only other 2002 I have seen with them is instagram user @ekmarton She is using hers with stock uncut fenders. On my race car I use spacers to fill in the gap

  8. .... 2020 just keeps on giving.... 😢 😳 Unfortunately assuming our Governor doesn’t extend the stay at home order and make the race on the 15th illegal thus shutting it down..... there is no way I’ll be able to make it. Looks like lots people are signing up and I’d love to be there with them but due to the issue at the Friday practice a few months ago, looks like I won’t be. It wasn’t my clutch like I wanted to believe... it went deeper than that. Luckily I pulled in after things didn’t feel right and avoided further serious drama. Still now we get to put her back together the right way which means I’m waiting on parts for a few weeks. Hopefully we can put her back together in time for Ocktoberfest... which would be the next race. Such an odd schedule Vara put together this year with a 5 month break in the middle of the year..... it’s pretty much like our “off season” and now with this covid situation knocking out 1 maybe 2 of the races.... looks like my season this year will be only 2 races... October and November season finale race. Ow well..... at least I have lots of time to do this.... no need to rush.... wish me luck. 🏁
  9. New front air damn thanks to @2002_bruiser3 .... was getting tired of the played out IE airdam n that everyone has.... plus mine finally got warped and melted a bit in last years car fire.... also has nice brake ducts, maybe time to add some brake cooling too. Maybe this might finally inspire me to paint the car? Install my beautiful e68’s ?? Let’s see ...
  10. Thanks COVID19 Sad reminder on my calendar that this weekend I should of been having the time of my life racing a track I have never driven.... Pahrump! This Covid shit fucking sucks.....on so many levels. I dire need of some throttle therapy.... let’s hope British extravaganza doesn’t get scrubbed either!
  11. I wonder if I’ll have a chance this year to add to my collection ... still missing that elusive 1st place.... #notlikely #maybeifeveryonecrashes ? 😷🤣😂 Looks like next 2 race weekends getting cancelled by coronavirus...... that and the financial ruin of many of us small business owners might put my race season in jeopardy and many others.....
  12. My sad race weekend in 3 photos. Started with a perfect sunny CA spring day.... found a nice parking spot at the track... and went out for a 3 laps... when I came in I was hearing a loud Clanking sound coming from the clutch.... that went away when I disengaged the clutch.... so I called it. Decided to head back to Mac’s Performance and see if it was worth fixing.... could possibly be a another issue that is motor related. Either way it was a DNS from me this weekend. Very much bummed out because I missed the new double header race format that I asked for last year.... anyway.... sometimes it never ends, sometimes I wanna just sell the stupid thing and go get a Miata or an e36 so I can actually turn laps instead of work on the dumb thing all the time. 🏁🇧🇷🏁🎥
  13. Well 3:54mins with a toddler interruption by myself is not bad. I wanted to time it in case I need to do this at the track in the future. I think if I had someone helping me I could of done it in half the time.... that said I spent the following 2 hours checking for loose bolts, doing some odds and ends putting my practice tires on and firing up the car for the first time in 4 months.... after a few attempts she roared to life once again and sounded ready to fight! Anticipation is starting to build now... 🏁
  14. Race is in 4 days.... I guess it’s time to try to “prep” this thing. .... Putting the other diff back in, I think it was actually a better(faster) ratio. So out comes the locked 4:10 and in goes the LSD..... SO how long you think it will take me? Any guesses?
  15. Well I sent my entry in.... so it’s official. First race of the season. It’s in 7 days so it’s probably time to dust off the race car and give it some attention this weekend. No budget for new tires so let’s see how long I can push these my season old Toyo’s..... .... 🏁🎥🇧🇷🏁
