    New hood

    After nearly five years, finally found a decent hood from a '99 Outback. It weighs 2.4 pounds more than the flat hood, and it still needs to be painted so that's next. Still weighs less than a BRZ.

    Added this "Type-R style front bumper lip for Acura Integra 1998-2001" from Amazon. $46
    Had to trim it at the wheel wells.


    You can -sort of- see the lip from the side here. Putting the street wheels on after a track day.

    Had a fun day and met a LeMans winner who is also the son of a motorsports legend.

    Pic from the June track day. My friend Ken's 1978 Fairmont parked behind.
    Track tip: I always like to park close to the loo just in case.

    Certainly not. How can it? Its wicked cool. And cool implies lower temperatures, right? That's how that works, I'm sure of it.

    So, I've recently gone and bought myself a drawing tablet, and in an effort to develop a steady hand, I'm tracing pictures of cars. And guess who gets to be the first one in my sights?

    Muse, this is just awesome! Thank you. I really like the detailing on the wheels and love that you left out the door dings. I hope this new hobby leads to big things for you!

    A small thing but the 9.5 pound ETX 12 battery in the Legacy is now 2 1/2 years old. After sitting for a month, it started on the first try. This one mod dropped 21 pounds off the front of the car. The car got a bath and will probably stay parked till spring.

    I had the Legacy for sale last fall with mixed emotions about selling it. Luckily, there were no takers so I had the chance to once again do a track day. The video is a long one but the track was busy and I think you'll find it more entertaining than my previous efforts.

    Only got 500 miles on Kumho tires.

    Kumho V700 50 TW tires. 500 on track and about 1000 total miles. The brake pads are also toast so probably the end of my season.
    On a lighter note, I've now passed three years running my car on a nine pound ATV battery.
    Had to replace both of my front wheel bearings this fall.
    No other mods this year.
    That is all.

    Some pics from the October track day. Now I'm pondering what if anything can be done for next year to lower lap times on a very meager budget.
    Upper left: Cobra Daytona Coupe, but it's a kit. Center left: The Ford behind my wagon is my friend Ken's daily driver 1967 Fairlane.

    Did you ever put a rear LSD in the wagon?

    No, I might if I changed out the axle ratio to a 4:11 but that sounds like a pain.

    I've been noticing your Miata. I had a '95 and although it wasn't the fastest car I've owned, it was the most fun. I like NCs but have never driven one. How do you like it?

    Its fun to drive. It has the normal NC issue of the 2nd gear synchro being difficult until the car is up to normal operating temperature. And the AC has a leak I need to find. My friend's shop put dye in the refrigerant so it should be easier to find. With the coilovers, sticky tires, and exhaust the car is a blast to drive. Sadly there were really no events to make it to this year around here. Hopefully that will be different in 2021.
