    Theres a lot going on with that thing just as far as exterior colors.

    You selling because you're getting rid of it soon?

    Putting in an offer in a home. I'm keeping the Veloster. It's a fantastic car.

    TRACK DAY BRO

    only mods are ksports, rear torsion bar, front strut bar, hot pipe, star specs, VTRS pads and ATE amber fluid. the track alignment proved fruitful at thompson. i literally smoked the brakes first session. second and third session they worked perfectly and i was able to break my personal record twice lol very happy with the performance of the vehicle this time. i'll have my videos up later. the car has a killer turn in right now.

    IMG_6516.JPG So I've removed and sold all the carbon parts, the grille, the throttlebody and hard pipes.

    also purchased a few new oem clips and small aero panels that ive broken or cut during removal. really trying to keep it as nice as possible.

    The autocross season is over! We had a killer double header weekend. 2x DSP class champion. worked hard for it this year in my "now-stf-car" to win DSP against a bolted and tuned focus ST. excited to get my new jacket at the banquet :)

    It's definitely interesting. You have got to wonder what the extent of the front end damage is though. But I suppose if it's going to be a racecar, does it matter what kind of accident it was in?

    IMG_0653.JPG IMG_0668.JPG Got the star specs flipped.

    Changed the rear pads last night and greased the slide pins / pumped a few ounces of brake fluid out. Will do the front pins and pump today.

    IMG_0754.JPG New Season New Me!

    Placed 3rd of 6 in "new" PAX based classing. Much more competition now. My rival ST from last year is fully built for DSP and whooped me and won his class. I lost my class by .3 ish. Not terrible for a stock car vs a decent prepped mini and Miata.
