Track day report pending

Hi everyone. I am writing this post to let you know that I haven't forgotten about my track day report from my recent June event. I have finished typing it, I am just waiting until I can get home and upload a video. Unfortunately I don't have much footage because my camera mounting location was off (washed out video) and my digital camera broken. I am returning the camera for a new one and I still have a footage of me driving someones car. The entry was delayed because of my trip to New York and my busy work schedule. I will replace this post with the entry once I make it.

Slight change in plans..

I have some big changes in my life that is coming up. Therefore, I have to prioritize my time and money. I will not be able to work on my aero projects for a while. Have no fear, the changes that are coming up are good changes. I will make a post about it someday.

I gathered some useful bits about setting ride heights while I was wrenching on my car the other night. This is useful especially if you run E-bay coilovers.  I hope it saves you some time.

On a side note, I finally got my first A in law school. In fact, I got three of them this semester. What a weird feeling. I went from being on the bottom third of my class to the top third. I feel all elite, and I can be one of those bastards complaining about a B and how I'm ENTITLED to an A. I hope I keep this up.. please wish me luck!
