Also... Stuff I've been doing with the car...

I started AutoX in 2012.

Took 2nd place in Novice 2012 Slush Series.



(BC Coilovers, 18x8 wheels, Toyo T1R Tires. (It was ****ty))

Took 1st place in G-Stock 2013 Championship Series and Slush Series.



(Koni shocks stock springs, stock wheels, Direzza ZII tires. (It was pretty good))

Took 3rd place in T2 2014 Championship Series. New rules made 4 digit numbers illegal. I had to pick something with 3 digits.



(Pretty much as describe in the OP.)

Went to Thunderhill in December 2014.



I want to get on track again.

Removed the race decals to make way for EDC decals.



My car was the Fun-vee.



My roommates car was the Hum-drum-vee. (Thank god he was a good sport about it.)





And now the car has no decals on it at all.





The last time I did this, I had a plan for the next set of graphics.

This time I don't.
