    first 'official' track day at Pine Valley Raceway....

    went out, sat around for 2 hours doing nothing, bullshitted my way through an IHRA inspection (why, no sor, my car wont start if the clutch isn't pushed in...of course i have an IHRA-certified helmet, it's in my trunk...), and made three passes.

    1st pass, against a 60's or 70's Fairlane...jumped his ass off the line bad (.8 r/t, his was like a 1.4) and was looking in the other lane like 'holy shit im winning! holy shit!' when i hit the rev limiter in second...15.3

    2nd pass, my best run against some chic in a camaro...ran a 15.2 and put a length and a half on the camaro.

    3rd pass, AWD turbo eclipse, got my ass busted bad. he ran like a 14.7 and i ran a 15.4. pluh

    then i broke an axle. fucking pieces of shit. how in the fuck do you break a new axle with a goddamn b16?!?!?!?!?! un-fucking-fair. my car's sitting at eneree(viciousteg)'s house, and my timeslips are sitting in the glove box...ill scan them in tomorrow.

    i swear, if one more thing goes wrong with my car, im gonna sell it and get a 240 with an sr20det.

    old-school eclipse...bone stock...well, he had exhaust...but like 200k miles.

    i pretty much got busted. he DESTROYED me off the line...around the middle of 3rd i started catching back up to him, but off the line awd is king.

    those cocksuckers at o'reilly gave me the wrong axles, too. fucking DX civic axles. fuckers. i told them on the phone Si axles...and gave my mom a piece of paper that had 'SI AXLES FOR 99-00 CIVIC SI NOT LX DX EX CX, BUT FOR AN SI!' that she gave them when she picked them up. goddammit.

    gonna get the right axles in the morning...you work tomorrow? if not, ill be at your place at...oh...11ish so i can get my axles on.


    and yeah, this towing thing is getting pretty frequent. i need to just buy a trailer.

    2g eclipses:

    RS/GS= non turbo FWD
    GST= turbo FWD
    GSX= turbo AWD

    i believe....

    yea, you got em right.

    this girl i know picked up a near-mint 2g GST and wondered why her eclipse got worse gas mileage than her boyfriends RS.... i had to point out to her that it was turbocharged. she had no idea, except for the fact it had more creature comforts than her boyfriends' 2g.
