GL NCM 2021

Here we go, first competition weekend of 2021. The Evo has continued to perform flawlessly lap after lap, track day after track day – thank God. The car continued that trend through day 1 of the Grid Life competition. Back to NCM, where I was 2 weeks ago to learn the track and get some…

PST NCM 04042021

First off, let’s get the big stuff out of the way. Just as I set off for home after the track day, disaster struck – one of my Falkens, the rear left, started to delaminate on the outer edge, showing its cords. I drove to this event in the Evo with the Prius as a…

Resonated Test Pipe (Evo)

New part on the Evo today – early enough (just one autocross) that I’m considering it a pre-season mod. I replaced my 100 cell cat for a resonated test pipe. From the pics, it’s clear this will be a huge improvement in flow. Additionally, cars that run high ZDDP oil eat cats anyway. The pic…

CCSCC 03282021 (Evo)

I had a great start to the 2021 season in my Evo. The Sequoia is temporarily out of commission, meaning I had to drive the Evo up and down for the event – a nice call back to the pre-trailering days. I looked back at the archive to see when I last did a CCSCC…

Alignment 2021 (Evo)

I had already known I was going to want an alignment prior to the start of the season – I was expecting the camber to be a little lower in the front, so I had wanted to get that taken care of – what I didn’t expect was how off the entire car was –…

2021 Preseason (Evo)

For the first time, I’ve really been enjoying the off-season. 2020 was the first time I primarily focused on track days, and it’s been good to unwind and focus on other things. That said, I’ve got big goals for 2021, and I’ve got a number of changes to the Evo to help me achieve those…

Rice Trailer (FMCR8218-BKTB) 16+2

New trailer for the tow car & race car – this is a Rice FMCR8218-BKTB – a 16′ trailer + 2′ dovetail that will be used for towing the Evo around. I always thought I’d own a trailer at some point, but I didn’t think it’d be feasible already – we have been very fortunate.…

Red Line Oil – 2021 Sponsorship

Though the Evo remains in storage likely until late February or early March, wanted to give a special shout-out post to Red Line Oil for sponsoring me once again, through the 2021 season! I am excited to continue the partnership and I’ve got high hopes for the Evo in time attack this year.
