Photoshoot – M3

Had a photoshoot for the M3, as I am officially looking to sell it to potentially purchase a condo. Special thanks to the gf for taking the pics. Will be sad to see her go (the m3, not the gf)!  

Pyrotect Carbon Fiber (SA2015)

With the new SA2020s coming in this fall, a handful of deals started popping up on the old SA2015s – still good for 10-15 years, depending on the club that you run with. This new helmet weighs in at 3.4lbs – not as light as I thought, but I suppose every ounce counts here. The…

Custom Valved Ohlins (Evo)

Just in – newly custom valved Ohlins for the 2020 season and beyond! This has been in the plans for some time now, and with quite a bit of wear and tear on my 7 year old Ohlins, I decided to sell that set and install a new, custom valved set for the Evo. For…

Motegi MR140s

Picked up my Motegi MR140 (18×8.5 +45) wheels the other day – originally purchased to be my race wheels, I decided to switch things up – the Motegi MR140s will be my daily wheels, running 245/40-18 General Altimax RT43s as my generic all-seasons. I went with the taller offset tires to provide more protection for…

Golf R – Vorshlag Camber Plates

To start off, for some reason these were an absolute nightmare for me to install. The first time I got the perches, they did not fit the OEM springs – while Vorshlag sent me slightly machined ones, a 2 day turnaround to get make for the weekend turned into an 8-day turnaround – with NO…

RIP – DD Corolla

RIP to our faithful daily driver Corolla – totaled in an accident that was not our fault on 2/3/20. The car had over 270k miles on it and honestly felt like it could have gone another 250k. The oil samples always came back solid and the car took a number of beatings over the years…

Golf R – First Few Mods

Wrapped a few of the first things I wanted to address on the Golf R today. This posted will be updated as I wrap up/complete various changes I’ve planned to make: Tail lights (1/26/20): The smoked ones on the car looked horrible, and were among the first things I wanted to change on the car.…
