  1. Hey all, Me: My name is Mike. I work at a local advertising agency by day, and by night I'm an obsessive car geek. I moved to Columbus almost exactly a year ago by way of Dayton (originally from Cleveland), and have just now found my way to the local scene. I frequent quite a few other car forums, and find myself addicted to discussing the details of this hobby that consumes so much of my time and energy. I am a moderator over at 300zxclub.com, so I am happy to say that I am not the typical noob who can't search, find his way around the internet, or understand the finer points of criticism. The Cars: I picked up my 1992 Nissan 300ZX in December of 2000, and have driven that both as a DD and now as a weekend car ever since. It has been my obsession, my pride and joy, and continues to be my rolling therapy session most days. I am more than happy to discuss the details of modifications, but for the sake of not making a ridiculous list on my introduction thread... here are two pictures instead. http://www.flux21.com/z/zdayz07/DSC04641.jpg http://www.flux21.com/z/zdayz07/DSC04814.jpg My other car, my DD, is worth mentioning because it has connected me to the VW crowd... a first for me. It's a 2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. For a car enthusiast, finding a mint DD with Recaro seats, 6spd and BBS wheels stock, was completely awesome. My commute has never been so much fun. Yes, I have a (teaser-like) picture for this too... http://www.flux21.com/bora/DSC06432.jpg Wrap-Up: I really like the idea of becoming involved in a multi-make, local car forum. I have been active in local AutoX events for the past seven years (minus last summer for all-around maintenance) and hope to seek out others in that circuit as well. I like the idea of an introduction thread being a feeler for regular members to accept or deny privileges; hopefully I can become a contributing member. Thanks for reading.

  2. Update from the Family --- John took a great step today. He is now breathing on his own. They've removed the ventilator and I believe they are starting to remove the sedation. They are not allowing visitors at this time as he needs a ton of rest. This is incredible step from when I was there on Saturday! He truly is a fighter! Keep fighting John!

  4. DATE: July 2, 2018 Ok guys and gals, we are going to do something for 1st and possibly 2nd timers (people who are new to track riding) the opportunity to do this day for free (in terms of track costs.) Back in 2016 @RHill (Ryan Hill) offered me a Mid-Ohio gift certificate so I could come out and ride the track the same day he was there ( I was a little tight on money at that particular time). I accepted this gracious offer and was going to pay him back with another cert the following year. Unfortunately I was never able to repay Ryan as he unexpectedly passed away that October. I'm not sure if I've ever met someone with the passion this guy had for all things track days and motorcycles. He was the first one to lend a hand and wanted everyone to have a good time. He was a staple in the paddock and is missed immensely. Since I was not able to pay him back, and I knew his passion for sharing his passion with other people., I am going to be giving away a Mid-Ohio gift certificate to a new track rider who would like to join us. I would prefer that person to be at least a member of OR since this is where details about this day will be posted etc. So if you had someone that was thinking about joining us for this epic day and is not a member, get them to sign up and post in here! You will have to let me know if this is going to be your 1st or 2nd time on track and I will keep a list of names and will draw a random number to determine the winner. No strings attached, and it's on the honor system in terms of how new you are to the track. I can't wait to get out there with you guys (since I wasn't able to ride at the OR day last year). Cert Giveaway List: 1. bowdog 2. JustinNck1 3. Killer_kaw 4. Wojo72 5. max_power 6. jhalls 7. Crazy Skull Crusher (Winner!) 8. amshort13 9. wolfeman28

  5. Hey guys it is with some guilt that I am finally able to post up. Many times I tried but just could not seem to be able to finish. The last few weeks have been really tough mentally,physically and emotionally. The surgeon is confident that the tumor has been totally removed so that is a good thing. The bad is my liver is fooked. Today was chemo training and what kind of chemo they are going to hit me with. Gonna be at least 6 months worth and hope for the best. That starts in 4 more days. It sure was a kick in the ass after only been retired for just over a month. I owe our own Nivin a huge load of gratitude. Yes he is part of my renal group and a decision that he made turned around one large obstacle that was causing some me some major issues. Thank you my friend I will forever be grateful. So that's pretty much it for now. Thanks to each and everyone of you guys and gals for the good wishes. Bless you all. Maybe one day I'll be able to shake your hands and thank you in person.

  6. Just got off the phone with John. We talked for about 15 minutes. He talks fairly normally, you can tell he struggles a bit in remembering certain things. He is rehabbing and learning to walk again. He said yesterday he walked 2 times and was exhausted and that was the worst part. Definitely a miracle. So happy to hear his voice and talk. He doesn't remember anything from this entire ordeal which is probably for the best but he does remember before and after, so memory doesn't seem to affected all that much. He struggles very occasionally in his speech but I'm sure that will fade as time goes on. John, you truly are a fighter. We all knew you could do it. I also asked when he expected to be back on a motorcycle and he is shooting for a month hahahaha. Now that's a true biker for life.

  7. I haven't been active on here, but just checking on my riders back home occasionally as I do my thing in the Navy. I really wish I hadn't found this thread, because I'm honestly hurt and my stomach sickened. IP, jbot, and others, I'm thankful you're hear to articulate thoughts of reason so well. I love to hear how much of a piece of shit I am due to serving in the military, when I've spent the last 2.5 years training to save other people's lives. In a few months, nearing 3 years of training, I'll finally accomplish my goal of becoming a Navy special amphibious reconnaissance corpsman. I bet it was a challenge to sit on your ass watching the Discovery channel's "Surviving the Cut" episodes of Marine Recon, and combat diver training while I was living it. You fat fucking dependapotamus. Asking why this guy was special? wtf? "huh, whats so special about the published Navy SEAL whose death made national headlines?" Kyle was a chief petty officer (higher enlisted), SEAL (small community), sniper (even smaller community). A group of bikers, friends, etc doesn't have shit on the brotherhood that exists in these communities. If the military is one big extended family, then the special operations communities are the analogical equivalent of immediate family, and chiefs our fathers. So put it simply, yes, its very fucking personal. Anyone else have problems? Send them my way with your name and phone, I'll be sure to forward it to the SEAL medics I work with every day. I probably shouldn't even post this, but I needed to vent... and its already typed out so fuck it. Sorry for reviving an old thread.

  11. I'm headed from the PacificNorthwest out to central Ohio in 2 weeks and started to look around to see what the car enthusiast scene was about and found this site. Who the hell am I? My name is Joe. 38ish something middle aged guy who's coming to Columbus for work - I've been pretty good with the BMW community here in the PNW, organizing meets, bbq's, drag and dyno days and I'm looking to get involved with like minded-folks in Columbus. We've got a place in Powell with my wife working in Columbus and me in Polaris. You have a family sedan -why are you on here? S-l-e-e-p-e-r. The car is a 2008 BMW 335xi sedan in Black (the AWD version). I wanted something I could use as my DD, race on the weekends, and take my old lady out for a hot date once in a while and not change a dam thing on the car. What's in your car? Stock the car is a TT 3.0L Flat 6 pushing 300hp/tq at the crank. The car has the following performance mods: JuiceBox3 ECU Piggyback boost controller pushing 16.5psi on race maps AR Design Catless Downpipes BMS Dual Cone Intakes Helix FMIC (shortly to be installed) My last dyno I hit SAE 386awhp and 377awtq. I'm shooting for 400+ awhp/tq once I get the next mod on, I can almost feel it!! But really now, do you race? I've done most my drag events at Pacific Raceways here in Seattle and Bremerton Raceway as well. Fastest time so far is 12.51s @ 111mph but I'm headed for the low twelves once the FMIC gets bolted on this week. 60fts average at 1.8s. I haven't run the road coarse yet but I'll work my way thru suspension/brake mods probably this summer and see where that goes. Aww for FFS man enough about you, where are the pics? For your viewing pleasure -> http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/car4.jpg http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/car9.jpg http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/car11.jpg http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/car13.jpg http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/car14.jpg The hell with the damn car... here's what it's all about for me: http://rogerover.com/gallery/car/dafodils.jpg Here's hoping to catch a few of you guys at some upcoming meets next month and talk shop about cars and racing. PEACE OUT!

  12. Lunch at Coal House BBQ. Then the fun part of 119, then 421, 80 and 550. Hammer down on 550 I see a deer running up the hillside....so I shut it down hard figuring there are more....and signal everyone behind me. Crest the hill and there is a doe and her few days old fawn in the middle of the road. Full on ABS...the fawn freezes so I dove right. That moved the fawn left where it froze again and found itself staring at the front tire of an MT10 that stopped 2 feet short of it. That fawn should now understand the value of ABS. I know Jamie and I do. So we start to accelerate and are still going slow and around the corner comes a cop. So we saved that fawns life, and it for sure saved us tickets. Win win.

  14. For those I'm not friends with on FB I figured I would put something on here for all that knew Ryan Hill. Last year after he passed I decided to buy his 750 and run the endurance race on it, it's something he wanted to do. We kept the group to close friends and just wanted to have fun and bring the bike home. We had myself, @RonStopable, @RVTPilot, and Bill riding with @TimTheAzn, @J_Copeland and Ron's brother helping with pit stops. I spent the better part of 2 months going through this bike trying to make sure it would survive the 4 hours. Ron and I haven't had a ton of suspension setup time and we made some poor choices when we were able to ride it. Friday came and we had no choice but to get it sorted. It's by no means perfect but it's very rideable by the end of Friday. We make one small change for the race Saturday and ride through any other issues that still persist. Things are going great until about the 3 hour mark when Bill comes in and says the clutch is starring to slip. We were determined to finish for Ryan epically since his mom came out to watch. The last stint I put is was probably the hardest I have had to do. Nursing the clutch on shifts and the bike only ruining about 120-125mph before it would slip made for very slow straights. Tim throws me a 10 min to go sign and I start taking to Ryan, asking him to help make sure the bike makes it. What feels like 40 min goes by and I see the checkered. I have never been so excited to see a checked in my life. Crossing the finish I started to cry and almost blew turn 1 lol. While none of us were setting the world on fire with the lap times it was a great adventure with a great group of guys. @Jester_ and @TRMN8TR were a huge help since they have ran these before and gave us a lot of pointers. Thank you everyone for the help. The shirts were also a huge success. I'll have more pics once I get them from @Photos by Marty and maybe Ron can post up what video he has from the gopro.

  15. Just finished my visit. Short version. F'ing miracle. Long version... he is totally there, remembers our ride the day before. Remembers specifics of the fz6 and who he knows had one. Details about me, my son...everyone. Maybe a tiny bit slow remembering really complicated words.... like medical terms. But that is a maybe. He always had a bit of that style in the way he talked, he would pause to make sure he was using the exact word he wanted. He is moving any second now to Metro for rehab. Both physical and cognitive. 8 days without moving creates a fair amount of physical issues that you just need to exercise through. Any cognitive rehab will be based on an evaluation.

  18. you knowingly use clearly unconscionable and crass statements in the hopes of getting attention to your sad little points, opinions, and existence. the fact that you think the key difference is that you're not blaming a deity for your dumb fuckery is astonishing, given how high an opinion you have of your intelligence. it would actually reflect better on you if you blamed some third party for your asinine tard logic... but no, you're just a sad dullard. here, i'm just puzzled. do you lack the ability to relate with anything/anyone that you don't directly interact with? have you been diagnosed with autism or aspergers? it doesn't make sense that you can enjoy the taste of obama dick and yet, you're so far away from him, not a friend, not a neighbor, never rode with him. but here, you don't understand why people might feel sad that a war hero died helping someone. you should probably see a psychiatrist to get the official diagnosis. do you really believe this is the reason he is admired and is famous? because he killed a lot of people? he is lauded for his efforts in the war that resulted in the preventing the loss of lives and injury of american soldiers. this is not hard, it's not a logic puzzle, it's just not being retarded. try to keep up. your disrespect of those who put their lives on the line for their country is unfathomably vile. if you truly believe there is nothing wrong with your opinion on the matter and that it is based on solid logic, please share your opinions of this event, and your opinion of servicemen everywhere with your cousin who is a ranger. the only thing that could be considered ironic is that he risked his life in a war zone for so many years in one of the most dangerous roles a person can take, and in the course of trying to help a fellow veteran, he was murdered by that fellow veteran. it is tragic, not something to be scoffed at by a servile retarded loser with a sad excuse for a life and with comparably nothing to show for his time on this earth. you feel bad for his family, but feel good enough to use the story of his death to throw in some fucking scummy quip? you're a just bad person and an awful human being. that's why. because you can't see why he is special, you feel the need to go into a clearly well intentioned space on the internet where people can express their gratitude for his service to this country and mourn his loss, and exhibit your apathy, disrespect, and to show how much of a piece of shit you are? you disgust me. not just because you are stupid, not just because you are a failure in so many respects, and not just because you lack respect. but because you are simply an awful human being.

  19. sum up thread. "i come on your site and talk shit, and then you just watch me talk shit on my own site" Wow, brandon, if this whole store ownership thing falls through you should totally apply to write slogans for harley davidson. "I pretended to play along, while puffing and beating my chest in front of my friends" "please let me advertise, I'll be good I promise" "but i really like you guys" "i really do" "you hate me" "i really like you guys, but you hate me" "you're missing out, I'm the coolest, but you already hate me" "I'm a man, I have needs, please help me" "i really like you guys, but the big bad admin is making me look bad" "i didn't mean to say all those mean things about you" "you made me say all those things" "fine, I don't need you, you need me" "don't you want to be as cool as me?" "I'm not really a jerk, I'm just a friendly troll" "please please help me" "Pay attention to me" "i'm gonna lash out" "you need me" "I'm cooler than all of you" "please please pay attention to me" "i really do have a life, I don't need you" "pay attention to me" "I need attention" Why don't you like me?" "you need me" "give me attention" "i'm cooler than i seem, i promise" "at least not everyone hates me" "please help me, i need you" "I'm doing fine, i don't need you!" "okay, i lied, i do need you, please help me" "i'm so scared, please help me" "fine, i don't need you, i'm cool by myself" "please help me" "fine, I'll take my chuckie cheese token and you can't play with me" "i'm cooler than all of you" "i tried to be your friend, but you wouldn't help me" "cmon, just be my friend, i'm really cool" "I'm so cool, you have no idea" "you're a big meanie" "Fine, I'll take my bat and ball and go home, this is your last chance" "your really really last chance" Brandon, honestly, I think you should see a psychiatrist regarding your bipolar disorder. I have some real world experience, and think you might benefit from some mood stabilizing meds, such as resperidol, benzotropane, topamax...

  24. Hello, So I guess I have to introduce myself to see the rest of the forum now. Not to much to know about me. I enjoy beating the ever-loving piss out of my daily-driver, a subaru. Mostly SCCA rally-X, and a little bit of auto-X. here are some picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/marchsnow017.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/photo.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/rallsig.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/Picture3.png http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/2254700223_2489e8abfb_b.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/2429795949_bd1d16cb61_o.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/2429796879_eaf00080db_o.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/2430612584_7bcfd90d78_o.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/mikewow/z06_0044.jpg Yea, so, Hi CR.

  25. As some of you know, I’ve been pretty distance on the forum over the last year or so. I sold my bikes, got married and this week I became a parent for the first time. Life has been hectic but hopefully 2021 i will be fortunate enough to get back into riding, back the way my riding began. Southeast Ohio day rides. I don’t see much long travels in the near future. Anyways, here is my new baby girl Karlie...

  26. Hey all. I'm planning to host at least one group ride a month next season. These rides will be very beginner friendly, but not at all boring. There are roads around here that are low traffic, decent pavement and good signage and sightlines. These are the roads upon which I built my fundamentals. I was privi to some very cool riders that were more than happy to offer help and correct mistakes before they became muscle memory. I still ride with a couple of these riders fifteen years later and we still have a great time. I want to invite you to that brotherhood. I am grateful for the friendships I have with these folks and the folks I have met on this board. I know we seem to be at each others throats this season. I am certainly in the camp of brown crayon mouth and letting shit get to me that I cannot control. No good ever comes from trying to bend the will of natural law. It's been a long, hard 6 months for me. For perspective, I rode almost 20k miles last season and even a couple work trips were taken on my Voyager. This year? Maybe a couple thousand? I have noticed the lack of time in my helmet equals less time for me to decompress and work shit out. My brain gets cramped with minutia and other people's bullshit. I enjoy life a little less. I am less grateful for what I have. I lose myself for too long. Riding is the treatment for what ails me. It forces me to focus on right now. Right here. If I blew a corner, I have to let it go. I can't think about the next corner, either. I have one two seconds from now that requires all of my focus. The only thing that matters when I am in "zoom" mode, is the here and now of Pauly's life. No distractions. I said that so I could say this.. I know three kind of new riders. The first rider is the one looking to become a better motorcyclist. They want to enjoy the sport. These are teachable riders. The slightly less teachable riders are the riders that can't check themselves and those that refuse to push themselves. All of these rider styles are welcome on these rides. I bet the title to my bike that I know something you don't that can change riding for you in a positive way. These rides will be focused on the new riders. They will be tailored to suit your comfort level so you can focus on fundamentals of street riding. If you wish to discuss your particular trouble areas before that day, feel free to PM me and we can chat about it. Whatever makes you more comfortable and able to focus on the task at hand. Riding changed my life for the better. I would like to help you along the same journey to being alone in your helmet. Disclaimer: The racetrack is the ideal environment to learn the fundamentals of street riding. I plan to ride this Monday. I am extending this invite to everyone, but take note that if a new rider RSVPs, the ride will be tailored to that rider. Feel free to PM me and RSVP in private, too. I am cool with whatever makes you less apprehensive. I am also willing to meet you where you are comfortable riding to, within the NEO limits. I can't be riding to Columbus or Dayton. Maybe someone from that region will start their own rides. Groups will be small, though. Large group rides are distracting enough for veteran riders. These are rides that can be done comfortably in jeans, boots, jacket, glove and a helmet. No land speed records are being set. Just a nice ride across some tasty curves to preferably somewhere not disgusting to have lunch, and back on the road for the home stretch. Nothing fancy. No bait and switch, either. I can guarantee no matter how fast the rest of the riders go, I will stay at your pace for as long as you feel comfortable. This has been a problem in the past and I feel too many new riders are left out due to one reason or another. I can't promise great weather, but I can promise crooked roads, tasty food and a relaxed pace. Lastly, as long as the doctors are recommending masks, I will be wearing one. You can do whatever you want, but please be courteous and respectful to me and other riders. Also, this is a ride. It is not a Biden/Trump death match and politics are verboten. I get enough of myself and the rest of you online. I do not care who you vote for. I care that you want to ride bikes. I hope to see you outside next season.

  27. Last year I went to India. There was a village close by which mainly depended on farming for livelihood. Unfortunately suffering from drought and no rain for few years. They were drifting into hardship and asking for help. I drove by found a suitable location, pretty good road loop nearby. Chose a good weekend date and posted an OR epic ride right there and then. Told the villagers to be ready for divine intervention. And exactly on the date of ride it started raining.crops sprout famine abolished kids playing harvest booming and Everyone lived happily ever after.

  28. Making OR Great Again Some of you may have noticed we are dying here. While there are many things we could do I think rides are what we need to do. But we need to do them differently. We usually post up a ride, tell the noob or slow person we will wait at each corner and don't worry......that isn't going to work. For several reasons. One, it's no damn fun for the slow person. They are basically riding on their own. So why not do that or find folks their own speed. Two, even though we say and mean we don't care how slow they are or how long we have to wait at each corner it still creates stress, worry... anxiety....whatever you want to call it. And they end up pushing themselves. Maybe not dangerously but certainly above their happy zone. I know this to be a fact because it happens to me every time I ride with you. And I was told this exact same thing by a long time member here just recently. So I will plan 4 or 5 rides this summer that will be slower rides and post them up. If you want to come and stay behind me cool. But you will not take off and go like hell and wait at corners and basically create the same situation. If you do, I will pair my Sena with you at the corner and shoot you. If 5 or 6 of us lead a few rides like this we will easily have 20+ sane social rides this season. Maybe shorter rides around the Atwood Lake area for example. And we will still have plenty of time to go like hell on other rides. Might help, might not. But the current course leads to a non existent OR by this time next year imnsho.

  29. The speed of the ride leader, or other riders in NO WAY should affect your speed. Your speed should be based on your skill, confidence, and how you prefer to be riding that day. End of story. If I'm content following the rider in front of me, I'll stay there. If not, I may pass in a straight, or the next time we change roads. If I want to chill, I'll either drop way back, or let someone know that I'm going to split off and do my own thing. In any case...I am riding MY ride.

  30. Jan: I'll make you an offer that might be better/cheaper than what your you've proposed. I'll lend you my '09 Suzuki DL650 (VStrom, non-ABS) for the time frame you've described. I have two bikes, and I can't ride them both at the same time. Here's the conditions: 1) I'm located in Cincinnati (SW Ohio) which is about 1.5-2 hours from Westerville--you gotta figure out a way to pick up and drop off the bike at my house; 2) I won't ask for any rent money from you--you are borrowing the bike gratis--but we will sign a contract saying that you will be responsible for any damage/loss/theft/speeding citations during the time you are in possession of the bike, and I will require a cash deposit of $500 to be refunded to you when you return the bike in satisfactory condition. Be aware that the drivers in the US are probably an order of magnitude worse in terms of driving skills, attention to the road and other drivers--ESPECIALLY MOTORCYCLES--thatn what you are used to in Europe. Fair warning to be aware and supremely cautious when in the saddle. Bike is in excellent condition, with nearly new tires, newer chain and sprockets, recent brake refresh including fluids, oil/filter change. Bike is equipped with touring windscreen, tank bag, and you can borrow my soft pannier luggage if you need to carry your gear. All I ask is that you check the oil after a long high-speed highway trip, as the Stroms are known to drink a little oil at 65-70+ MPH, and keep the chain lubed as needed. Lemeno. Bill Francis

  31. I think this will be tough on his closer friends, so I thought I would write this up so they didn't have to go through the heart ache. It is with great sadness that I have to tell you guys that Ryan Hill (@rhill on here), and more affectionately known as RACEDAY to us who knew him on the track, has passed away. He had been having some issues with breathing in the past week or so, and last night was still well enough to drive himself to the hospital. They had found blood clots in his lung(s) and early this morning, he went into cardiac arrest and did not make it. I wasn't as close to him as some of the others, so I'll keep this short so they can pour their hearts out when they're ready. But I wanted you all to know that Ryan's friends and family, the track days/racing community, and moto community in general lost a great person and asset and friend today. godspeed to you Ryan. You lived well, you gave of yourself, and you were loved and will always be loved. Godspeed. Latest update from Ryan's family: Funeral for Ryan Friends will be recieved Monday and Tuesday. Monday evening 4pm to 8pm Additional viewing Tues 9am to 11am with service to immediately follow in the Leftdahl Chapel. Leftdahl Funeral Home 898 Old Route 119 North Indiana, PA 15701 Please share this information with anyone who does not have access to Facebook. EDIT: link to his obituary. Look at this handsome bastard https://www.indianagazette.com/news/obituaries/ryan-hill,25206256/

  32. Well we've been married a few months now, and i just don't give her the time she deserves. I'd rather spend my time riding and going out and partying.. I paid a huge price to have her, but I'm going to let her go for $500 if they can prove they would be a better husband than I... Thanks for looking!

  34. Hi all. I've lived in central Ohio all my life and I'm currently a first year student at OSU. I've been drag racing for 12 years, starting when I was eight in the Jr Drag Racing League and now Sportsman/Street classes. Now in to the important stuff. 3 years ago I bought a 1992 Camaro RS. It was a 305 TBI with a five speed and shortly thereafter my dad and I started with modifications. Since the car is built to be a competitive track car the first mod was to take out the 5 speed and swap it for a built 700R4. I know, opposite of what everyone else does but consistency is key in bracket racing so an auto is better in that regard. I took it to the track a couple times and it was slow: mid 16s. The next winter we did bodywork. Jack Maxton body shop did the metalwork: quarter panel skins and fixed rust around the windshield. Then we did the priming, blocking, and painting and I refurbished and polished the wheels. Next we started on power. I got a 5.7 from a 1999 suburban, was in good shape but had over 200,000 miles. It had the vortec heads so had decent power for a factory engine. I put on shorty headers, 3inch all the way back to a flowmaster 40. We kept the TBI and got the factory redone by Dynamic efi, so it is now flash based and fully tune able from the laptop. Also installed sub frame connectors. Ran that setup last year and it did well. Ran low 14s best pass was a 14.00 at 96. This year we took the engine out to freshen it. Got it honed (only 0.001in wear after 205,000 miles and a season of racing!), five angle valve job, and got the seats cut for more lift, all bearing replaced. We got everything back and did some slight porting on the heads, then put it back together: stock pistons, stock rods, stock crank (had to be ground, race grid by fowler), lt4 hot cam kit (lt4 hot cam, lt4 springs, 1.6 full roller alum. rockers), one piece pushrods, and new valve covers. Still have to put it back in the car. Spring break project, then it will need tuned. Should be right around 400hp and 425ft lb of torque which should put it right around mid to high 12s. Other mods from this winter were new Moser axles, new diff cover with set screws to put pressure on the bearing caps, a driveshaft loop, added four temp sensors and a gauge, and I got a 3in cowl hood which we still need to paint. I think that’s about it here's some pics http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww66/92SS3908/CamaroatMarina008.jpg?t=1236991661 http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww66/92SS3908/CamaroatMarina001.jpg?t=1236991817 http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww66/92SS3908/CamaroatMarinaI072II.jpg?t=1236993249 [/img] http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww66/92SS3908/2008NorwalkHighSchoolNationals062.jpg?t=1236993793 http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww66/92SS3908/2008NorwalkHighSchoolNationals063.jpg?t=1236993970

  35. My name is Ryan. I have an 07 Mazdaspeed 3. I am currently planning on doing absolutely nothing to my MS3. But, if were going to, I would get a carbon fiber hood and some vinyl for the sides. Seriously though, joined Columbus Racing to find out more on the local scene. Love to see what people have done to their cars. I don't consider a spoiler and a carbon fiber hood, a serious mod or upgrade. Also, would like to see if there are any other MS3 owners out there. The MS3 sites, out there, are pretty lame…lots of owners bragging and posting pics about the new bike rack for their MS3…great, awesome, sweet. Hoping CR turns out to be productive. I am mostly interested in motorsports…in case you were wondering…no, NASCAR is not racing. Dan Gurney and Jim Hall were geniuses. We need more drivers like Mark Donohue in racing. Grew up admiring Bobby Rahal, Nigel Mansell, Tommy Kendall and "Das Wunderkind" in the early 90's. Currently working on my racing license. I have 1 more course to complete at Skip Barber, in the spring. Would like to find out more on any central Ohio events, as well. http://i717.photobucket.com/albums/ww174/SoccerHart76/MS3_Rainbow.jpg http://i717.photobucket.com/albums/ww174/SoccerHart76/SK_.jpg

  36. Hello everyone, my name in Mike. A few friends keep mentioning CR, so I thought I would come on over and join. Like most of you here, I am a huge car guy, and can appreciate every make and model. As you can tell, I am a mustang guy, owned quite a few over the years, my current rides are a 97 triple black Cobra. Kenny Brown prepped suspension, cobra R brakes and rims, and tons of other bolt-ons. My current project is a 86 hatch with a fresh 91 5.0, full sn-95 cobra suspension, and 04 cobra IRS out back. Here are some pics! Looking forward to meeting you guys in the near future. http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l265/mojosvt/Black%20Vert%20Cobra/BlackVert1stdetail012.jpg http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l265/mojosvt/Black%20Vert%20Cobra/P1010519.jpg http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l265/mojosvt/Black%20Vert%20Cobra/vert2.jpg http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l265/mojosvt/86%20Hatch/Hatch001.jpg http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l265/mojosvt/86%20Hatch/4-eyeengine.jpg

  37. We swapped bikes for a short bit on Monday. Before we took off he asked if I was prepared to spend $20k on a bike. I wasn't, but that ended up being irrelevant, because I spent the next 3 days searching for one. He and I zoomed to Nielsen Motorsports in Lake Villa, Illinois Friday night. We spooned all night, had Starbucks for breakfast and zoomed to the dealership Saturday when they opened. It was ready to roll, except for the system update Jim was prepared to install for me, but they jumped on it with the quickness. I got my tutorial from the salesman and some more pertinent pointers from Jim. Rode it 445 miles home yesterday and put another couple hundred on it today. It just keeps getting better. If you are in the market for a sport touring mount, then go look at one of these. Ride one before you write it off. This bike is incredibly nimble and can be pushed hard all day with little fatigue. It takes everything I can throw at it and just eats miles at speed with ease. The brakes are awesome. Six-piston front calipers and 320mm dual discs stop this thing in its tracks. The new front end is the shining star of the bike, but the flat-6 and delicious exhaust note are nice touch. Also, Honda is offering .9%/60 month financing on leftover 2018 models for the rest of this month. That made the decision a little easier for me.

  39. Just over 4 days, a little more than 1300 miles, 4 states, & 2 countries. 4 women, 2 Ducati Monsters, 1 Yamaha R6, & 1 Silverado carrying a Supermoto and all the rest of our gear. Unfortunately our trip contained a crash not long after we crossed into Canada from MI, and after a 5 hour delay at a hospital we continued on without our injured rider. Luckily she only suffered broken bones and road rash... it could have been much worse - the whole thing happened almost right next to me and was very surreal. Once we arrived at the event, there were bikes everywhere at the campground (all kinds from old Royal Enfields to BMW GS1200s to Triumph Scrambers to Harley cruisers and a few supersports). There were 550 women that arrived for a weekend of camping, free drinks, karaoke, live bands and some really beautiful riding thru the Catskills of NY. The weekend was perfect for riding, until Sunday when we left for home. We left early trying to beat a storm, but still hit downpours thru PA that soaked us completely thru our raingear, so we had to stop to dry out and wait for the storm to pass. This was an epic journey for me as I've never taken a motorcycle trip, let alone go camping, all with women I'd never met in person either. I had such a great time meeting women riders from different states and going on my first all women group ride (there were 15 of us)! It was a blast and I hope to go back. And, yes there were lesbians there...

After multiple attempts i had to edit and re edit, affecting the quality of video and length wise also had to cut down. finally able to save the work, but with some typos at the end lol. Said to heck with it and uploaded as i was close to loosing it after wasting so much time on this. Hope you guys enjoy this small edit to kill some time during winter.

  42. no stunting isn't being a douchebag... it takes skill and practice just like any other skill... stunting on public roads... like drag racing on public roads ... like racing around public roads is a douchebag move... you are taking people who don't wish to participate. and make them into potential hazards... don't act like you or any other stunter with years of practice hasn't ever messed up... shit the pros mess up... same with drag racers and motogp racers... but when your on a public road and mess up.. you can muck up someone elses life.. not just your own... do I like seeing stunts heck yeah.. when on private property or properly sanctioned where every single person around knows whats going on and the risk involved... just like I love going to races! but take it to the city streets and your 100% unequivocally a douchebag with no regard for the ones that have no choice in your mistakes

  44. I've been a motorsports enthusiast for about 27 years now, which is as far as I remember. Moved from Toledo a few years back and now live in Canal Winchester. I currently have 2 Subarus, 2 BMWs, and 2 Kawasakis, of possibly interesting note to you guys: 1. 1998 Subaru Legacy GT (I gather from other Oven posts you guys love Subaru! :ninja:) It was once stock till the HG blew and I used it as an excuse to put in a low milage STi drivetrain. It was still supposed to be a DD. http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/7347/dsc03227lm2.jpg Then it got full suspension, brakes, etc and became my AutoX/Track Day toy. http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/7612/leg1pb3.jpg http://img374.imageshack.us/img374/4521/dsc0952wy9.jpg Then we moved down here in 2007 and I had to drop to 1 vehicle so it became a DD again for a few years, but now it really serves no purpose other than a spare vehicle, but I've got so much time invested in it, and it's so much fun to get stupid in, I'll likely keep it. 2. 1997 M3 I've had it for a year and am really only making driver satisfaction upgrades at this point. So far: 1. Misc. drivetrain upgrades that make me feel a bit better about running it hard when I do drive it. 2. Exhaust - This is my first I6 engine and I really enjoy the sound of it pulling through the gears. 3. Steering wheel and shifter upgrades - My main interface with the car besides the pedals. I've AutoX'd it, and will likely track it as well this year as a baseline for the performance and feel of a stock M3. At <60k easy miles, it still feels surprisingly very tight. http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/9650/20111016bmw4.jpg 3. 2003 Kawasaki ZX6R Track Bike I've ran it for the past 4 years, it's been down but it's a well put together bike that still runs great. I got it flat black and updated the paint to a retro-racing theme from an early 90's 250. Then I promptly put it down at Mid-Ohio and messed all the new paint up. http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/1589/pnt1.jpg http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/543/kawasakibrochurezxr250b.gif http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/3664/pnt2.jpg http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/7/88648548.png I think I'm selling it this summer since I told my wife I'd stick to cars and karts once we had our first and now we do. Looking forward to seeing some of the cool projects others have worked on and meeting folks at the local events.

  48. Excuse me while I whip this out: Play with cars, guns and drink beer. Not necessarily in that order or all at once. Making computers go for 12.5 years. Now on hiatus. ***Insert beer pic from below here*** Part-time pit crew monkey for a Rolex team. http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/MiamiPractice.jpg Love the beer, perhaps too much at times. http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/BeerLove.jpg I've owned 4.5 cars in my life. I still have 2.5 of them. '74 260Z- stolen, '84 GTi- Under the knife, '99 A4 (Black)- Ran out of talent, '99 A4 (Red-ish)- Daily Driver, '87 325i- Lemon Bitch of which I'm part owner. No pic's of any of them for some reason but the Lemon. The Lemon Night Shot, pre-race: http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/Images/Lemon/ReadyFrontQrtr.jpg Yes, the graphics are indeed mad-fucking-tite. Yes, we did them. No, we won't do yours as graphics are evil and will make blood run from your ears. Lemon + Me Action Shot: http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/Images/Lemon/eBell01.jpg The choice of course markers proved to be very theraputic. It was every stuck in traffic fantasy I ever had. Well, not the the one with two chicks and the ferret. Why yes, our pit crew is armed, isn't everybody's? http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/Images/Lemon/WellArmedCrew.jpg Ahhh, the gun thing. I suppose a few wouldn't hurt. The one rifle I own that I can NOT leave alone. Everybody else mucks about with their AR, I choose the SOCOM because I'm an idiot and like doing things the hard way. http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/perhaps.jpg Not that I don't have a soft spot for Mr. Stoner's design. http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/CQTInstalled.jpg My precious. I got a thing, real bad, for a short bbl 7.62x51: http://www.netwalk.com/~mrbell/CurrentGoTo.jpg In my world the sky is blue. You get my respect until you fuck that up like you do everything else. I am not a bad ass, low-drag, high-speed mother fucker. I do play one on T.V. I hate people. I like individuals. I'd like to thank everyone for coming here tonight. I know it was short notice but your a great group and I knew I could count on you! Drive safe and tip your waitress!
