Very nice-- i've really grown to like the look of the oem bumper with a lip. I used to hate it. Now i look at my Invader stuff that way.

How's everyone doing? CRBCelica, it was good to see you the other day. As you know, my old celica is a goner but least an Type-S will keep me company until things settle down.

Show us the new parts you have Chinu :beard:

haha thanks again for the parts. I will post up some pics once my car is out of the shop. Sad to see your celica like that but the RSX looks sweet!

Getting my car more sorted out. It's plasti-dipped, I got my wheels, tires, Moroso baffled oil pan, GReddy oil filter block adapter, upgraded stop tech drilled slotted rotos, stainless steel lines, HAWK track pads, TRD sides, OEM front and stuff. I'm gonna need some coilovers somewhat soon. Anyways, this is as far as I've gotten so far.

Thanks CRB, i appreciate it. Although, when i was at BIR i spilled some Race Gas (tm) down the side of the car under the fuel door and i touched it up with a preval sprayer and it didn't turn out very nice so i'm likely going to have to respray the whole panel. Kind of a bummer. And a daily driver celica would be cool-- i admit the thought has crossed my mind, but i've been on a B-spec/hot hatch kick so i bought a hyundai accent hatch. It has a surprisingly large performance aftermarket, weighs 2300lbs and has a five speed. It's really fun to drive.

Very fun. My instructor said that i did so well after only one lap session that he didn't even need to work with me and decided that he would coach his other 2 students and that i could do whatever. I decided to stick with him and the other 2 students, but w/o instruction. It felt really good being told by my instructor that there was really nothing for him to teach me unless i wanted to learn some advanced techniques that aren't part of the regular HPDE.

I'm going again on the 26th, and thought maybe i'd try to advanced techniques then. It was very fun because i was keeping up with a 2005-2010 Shelby Mustang (in the twisty part of the track) and it was very gratifying. Granted that was one of my instructor's other students and he was new to the track, but it still made me feel pretty good. Those Nitto NT01 tires were almost like cheat codes. My instructors only advice was that i could probably push harder than i was. But that was just kind of a comfort thing i guess. I'm going to try to push even harder on the 26th.

Anyways, it was an absolute blast. It was my birthday today and my Mom's present to me was to pay for my Aug 26th HPDE. ($315!) Greatest Mom ever?
