  1. Oh yeah, I've wiped out on my butt before, but never this bad. The donut helps, though!
  2. *tap tap* Is this thing on? Long time, no see, in person or otherwise. I just need to get back on track, period. I stepped away from nearly everything when I left my last full-time job and now that I finally found a new one, let's GOOOOOOO. It's time to do the responsible thing and blow every last extra cent hooning cars. I need to fix the Porsche 944 (blown head gasket and clutch) and VW 411 (914 engine swap incoming), both of which don't reeeeeeally run at the moment. The Lancer is still here, though. The Lancer is always here. I just cracked my tailbone on the ice and I will
  3. Man, it's been way too long since there's been an Austin TJ meetup. I don't think I can afford cash- or time-wise to move into a more car-shenanigans-friendly place (! eeee) the weekend before and do, um, haha, anything in the near future, but I'd be down to say hi. (If anyone wants to drink beer and pack/unpack boxes, LMK! Haha.)
  4. I've seen tackle boxes in use for bolts, too, but I tend to have a zillion little baggies myself. It's my engine! I've never looked inside my engine—just done the stuff around it. But it's my engine! I have the spare engine from the '83 that had low compression in one cylinder and then sat in a field for a few years. I think I might rebuild that next, whenever I get some free time.
  5. IDK, there was a genius that tried this for LeMons with a Rita? Mini but they got a zillion penalty laps. Very sad to see the track go, regardless. :(
  6. Booooooo. Can't people just, like, live somewhere else? At the very least, I hope they at least accidentally end up with a Goatse Lane or something.
  7. Ooooooh neat. I came across these tests when I was looking up the concussion I got last year and didn't know they were available to the general public.

    That's what happened to me. Right afterwards, I felt like I could've hopped back into another car. LeMons was a hard no on that one. I didn't go to the hospital since I felt OK at the time and was actually concerned about the cost of that. These are both stupid reasons for not going to the hospital. A few hours later, I was still full of piss 'n' adrenaline but starting to feel worse. I think I was more concerned about some small ache my arm that must've whacked something on impact than anything else. Next morning? Oh helllllllllll no. I was starting to feel really dizzy and even put o

    Holy crap, this trailer sounds nice.
  11. Holy crap, that sounds like a blast. Good luck!
  12. Congrats! Heh, I'll also gladly volunteer as a free student. :) I suck! Who wants a challenge? Hahaha. TBH, I think it'd be hard to classify instructors because you have such a variety of students out there that it's hard to quantify what makes "the best." At the end of the day, the ones I've gotten the most from have been people who bust my balls about what I'm doing wrong, and who might know my car and do some crapcan racing, too. But then I'm there at the trackday for someone to point out what I'm doing wrong! That's my entire reason for wanting an instructor in the car! But ot

    Oh hell yeah! Highlight reel time.
  14. My parsh didn't get dirty yet. Too wet, no headlamps, too soon. So, my project for the next month is to get the parsh dirty-able. Because DIRT!!!
