Star Wars Republic Commando for the original Xbox. Probably my most played game for the system, now playable on Xbox One. Time to see how far I can get in one night.
Drove 10 miles out of my way to fill the Mini with some ethanol-free VP racing fuel. I was a bit disappointed to see that the 94 they had last winter has been replaced with 91 but we will see how the Mini likes it. Hopefully it will be happier with this than it has been on the winter blend 93 from the Shell station…
This is probably the worst Kinja thing yet
My Mini turns 15 at some point this month and I am curious to know what its actual birthday is.
A Roadrunner that’s 7 inches shorter on the passenger’s side than the driver’s? Sure, lets make it drive and slide it on a dirt track because why not?
5 to 8 inches and I have to drive to work tomorrow on summer tires. I give it 40% odds I end up stuck somewhere.
10/10 would hit head on roll cage every time I get in or out of the drivers seat. I like the way it looks better than I thought I would and it’s going to look great in Shell colors with a big 1 on the windows (yes I’m biased, shut up).
So have some Ghost you creeps.
In this episode the Squirrel takes his Mini to the track for a 3rd time and promptly FUBARs his brakes for a 3rd time.
A bit of local Craigslist gold that needs to be shared:
A stock (well, mechanically stock but with Kouki kit currently installed, factory parts available), clean, rust free, S13 in MA and only $4,500. I don’t think I have seen one in this condition in NE in my entire life.
WTF Fox? At least setting the laptop to 1080p fixes it.
I was scared shitless about hitting a cone (the paint marks super easy) but thankfully my Dad and I made it through the day without hitting a single cone. Much sideways fun was had and it was a great way to celebrate my birthday and the last event of the season. As discussed earlier I now need a BRZ of my own.
I hop on Craigslist looking for drift missiles (procedure: go to craigslist, click cars + trucks, filter for RWD and manual, see what pops up) and this pops up not far from me. I got to drive and autocross my Dad’s BRZ on Sunday, confirming my belief that there is one in my near future.
I didn’t even realize anyone other than the Cup guys were running the Roval so this is an interesting surprise for me.
I cooked my brakes (again) during day 1 of SCCVs autocross double header at Canaan this weekend. When I decided after 1 run today that they were too sketchy for what was essentially a track day with some cones one of the chair people of the club offered me his Miata for the day. I jumped at that opportunity and I…
I went autocrossing and convinced the other members of my FSAE team that we should bring the car out. We expected to be upper-mid pack but I ended up switching classes for the afternoon when we discovered that the car had the pace to run for fastest of the day. We came 4th, .5s off a podium that included a pair of…
It’s another thing to use clickbait to jerk off to yourself.
That did NOT go where I was expecting it to go.
