Corolla hits 250k!

With all the commuting between STL & Chi for school, the Corolla has really been racking up the mileage, I’m on pace to drive about 28-30k/yr. Advertisements

SCCA PDX 07072018

Another PDX session with SCCA Chicago region, this time on Autobahn’s full course. With the new autocross car getting prepped, the Evo has moved to full track duty, which means I’ll be leaving the 24psi map on the car, which picked up a modest 10-15hp. The evo feels good and pulls strong, stronger than the…

BSCC 2018-4 06242018

4th BSCC event of the year – had a guest codriver for this event. Took the Mini, as it would be much easier to handle than the Evo. The Evo’s calipers are also leaking brake fluid from the pistons/seals on the passenger’s side of the car, so the car is rendered out of commission. The…

I will still be driving the Mini for nearly half the autocross events, but have shifted the focus more to the Evo, prepping the car for autocross and track, and continuously…

Stl Points Finale

However, the region spiked in competition this year, with many newcomers and fast drivers. Looking at the relative scores (top 6…

Evo UOA #4

Looking good for two track days and 24 autoxes, not to mention the most mileage I’ve put on an oil so far – really happy with the wear. Keep in mind for Red Line oils, the first few flushes are actually known to pull off a little more copper than usual before settling down. Looking…
