It survived autocross! It also passed the Fun test with flying colors. Tons of lift-off oversteer, possibly even a little too much. Maybe I just need to learn to drive better, because I spun it once and almost spun it a second time, missing a gate.
One quick update before I bring the Neon to autocross today. The shifter felt very loose, so I ordered some bushings just to improve the feel. Good thing I did, because one of the bushings was so worn out that one of the shifter cables was just resting loosely on the transmission with only it’s own weight holding it…
This has to be my new favorite out of context quote:
Thankfully, the Neon I bought is in amazing condition. The only problem in the interior was that the rear-view mirror was in the center console, and not attached to the windshield. Excellent forward visibility, sure, but not ideal.
So, I tried rallycross, and it was pretty much the best. I drove in my way too new, way too shiny STI:
I kind of want to do drifting. Wouldn’t mind owning a drift missile, either.
wing-brothers, rumble-bros, subi-sisters... “STIsters?” Ok, that’s enough.

I was passed today by an E39 M5 with straight pipes. He must have been going over 100mph, and the sound was...
At least 3 inches off of the road.
...but he’s got a lot of lives in him. It’s not ok to put lives in Frankie Danger.
It’s an email from my bank, not a newsletter about my... nevermind.
Between home ownership and car ownership, I have acquired a decent number of tools. Since I bought them over the course of 10 years, I never saw an immediate need for any kind of storage/organization solution. It’s become an issue now, and I’d like to do something about it.
The menu defaulted to “Ground” and not the free option. Hm.
I’m a fan of this newly popular body style. It’s a similar idea to the CUV, except not lifted, not too fat, and I don’t vomit in my mouth whenever I look at one. The three competitors I could think of are the Kia Stinger, the BMW 4 series Gran Coupe, and the Audi A5/S5 sportback.
I mean, I guess some people would rather have a Golf R or Civic Type R, but a lawsuit just seems a bit extreme.
