And yet another small car meet up occurred now that all the Wichitoppo’s have a small Japanese car
Changed the brake pads on the scion. They are adorably small next to the old pad from my Mustang
Local muffler shop fabbed up a muffler delete. For $115 it’s a much better deal than buying a bolt on, and it retains all the factory attachments.
Rallycrossed the subaion today. It didn’t go particularly well.
his past weekend a few wichitoppos and I went out to LA for a pseudo-bachelor party. I rented a Z4M off of Turo. After driving nearly 400 miles in it and then returning to my FRS in Wichita I can safely say I like the Scion more.

My exterior camera wasn’t sticking to the windshield today, so I just threw it up on the trailer and let it run. The result is an hour of autocross, unedited, from outside the cars. We don’t normally see it this way, it’s kinda interesting. There’s a drifting crown vic in there somewhere. I also captured most of the…
Ultramarine takes nicely to carnuba wax. Hopefully I can find the motivation to polish it next weekend. The paint is in far better shape than my GT was when I bought it, but it could definitely use some love
