    Why'd you swap to a white FRS? newer model year?

    And sorry about the job, that does fucking blow. Hope you find something good soon.

    What? You've been out of work? Is this why you asked about Texas? I thought you were just considering a job change. I could send out my resume to some local friends and contacts if you want.

    White FR-S because the RS1.0 was classified in C-Street and they moved all the other twins to D-Street (2 years ago). The ND Miata kills the car in CS so it was either stay in a class where I know I 100% have a disadvantage against 90+% of the cars or move to DS with the rest of the pack and have reasonable competition. But then the 4-cylinder turbo Camaro ended up in there and now the Type-R so it's like I sold the yellow one for nothing.

    Oh woops. I meant without any work on the car. I haven't changed a thing in 15 months and I feel like I'm neglecting it. Don't you feel like you're not treating your car well if you just leave it like that?

    I'm considering Texas for a million reasons. Talk to me on Steam or something about it sometime. It's not urgent though.

    Oops, sorry I read that to mean you were out of work. Was thinking the same thing that that was why you were looking at texas.

    But lol, going 15 months without working on her is probably a good thing!

    Took the Evo to an autocross yesterday. Didn't care where I placed or what times I ran so I just went crazy with it. Stock suspension, 405whp/365tq (Mustang Dyno), and 265 wide street tires is not a good combo on this car for autocross. Totally out of control, can't put down the power properly, and scary as fuck at times. Loved every second of it though! Wish these things could be competitive in SCCA but they're just too damn heavy. Going to be installing a battery box soon so I can take the back seat out at Pacific Raceways (they get all pissy if it's exposed to the cabin) and see if I can get into the 10s in the 1/4 and get kicked out. Sadly, I don't think she'll get anything else done to her for another year as money is still tight and the STX build for the FR-S takes precedence.

    Glad it was still fun though man.

    I understand not doing anything to the car because money is tight! But update us on the stx build, I'd be curious to follow that. Or is there another forum you have that build on?

    No separate forum for the STX car. I've been considering moving a lot of my content to a racing blog at some point. Maybe I'll give that a try and link you guys to it from here.
