    Charlotte Motor Speedway was a BLAST! I finally met Anthony (tsingson) in person! Great to meet you again! The car did really well as always! The ~4 hour drive to Charlotte was uneventful. The lack of cold A/C was killing me. I took out almost all of the heat insulation on the drivers side of the transmission tunnel to get the racing seat to fit, so it gets pretty hot in there. That needs to change!

    Preparing to go out on track! Thanks to Kevin of Exomotive for the photo!

    And a few photos I took of the event!

    Wish I got more track time, but splitting the day up between photos and tracking gets difficult! The new seat and harness set up is fantastic though! Holds me nice and tight and I could tell I was pushing the car harder and was more confident!

    It was great to finally meet you Danny. I am trying to make it to the AMP event in Oct but it's not looking so good with work. If I could only get out of going to my cousin's wedding.......

    Forgot to post these here! Some great photos of my car by Devin Hultgren. Charlotte was one of the cooler tracks I have driven. That has a lot to do with the fact that we drove it at night! Such a cool experience! There was a weird time at twilight when the lights didn't really do much, but it was too dark to not have lights. The track became so different and I had to relearn the track all over again!

    Had another great track day with Jzilla trackdays on Friday! There were some cool cars there!








    No pictures of my car...yet, but that's what happens when you are the one taking the pictures!

    And a video of one of my laps! Chasing down another NA! My all-season tires are really holding me back! haha

    Last Sunday I had another track day at Atlanta Motorsport Park. It was an appreciation event, so I didn't have to take pictures...I still managed to take 1000 photos somehow. But my friend let me borrow his RE71's so I could use some stickier tires and not have to deal with those all-seasons again. All I have to say is....I'M HOOKED!!! I'm gonna need some nice tires for next season for sure.

    I also borrowed my friends AIM SOLO to get some proper timing and data. That thing is cool! And between the new tires and the new seat/harness, I was able to cut 6.5 seconds off my previous best time at AMP! I still have a ton of time to make up, but having grip was something I wasn't used to!

    A huge thank you to Eric (RotornutFD3S) for these awesome photos of me on track!!
    Here is a photo of me getting passed by two Miatas!

    And here you can see how low my catalytic converter sits now. It had to be flipped 90* to clearance the notch for the seat.


    I need to get a race seat for the passenger side now, as you can see my dads head sticking up over the roll bar.

    And here is a video of my best lap!
