Just starting this page so that people could dump their photos they've taken trackside. I figured we needed one since not all of us are drivers.


I was part of the pit crew for my friend's Acura during the FF battle from Super Street sponsored by General Tire this weekend. We got to watch some FR battle from Import Tuner/Continental Tire and some HPDE as well. Also there was some FRS/86 thing going down too.


Got there in the early morning
This was our car
SPOILER

Some of the other combatants

SPOILER


Some FRS/86 action

SPOILER


Some drag racing later in the day

SPOILER


Some JDM action... and no Floh to admonish us for admiring it. It's a damn shame. I was almost looking forward to it. Oh well. Time to move on with life.

interesting to note- our safety car for this event was a Civic Type R
SPOILER

This R32 showed up. Not quite sure what hood that is. Between the white wheels on black car+ strange vented hood, It's not really my cup of tea but kudos that he showed up at all.
SPOILER


During the course of the day we had our share of fun- our driver, Gary was unaware of the embellishment on the back of his vehicle when I took this

Wind at 10mph my ass; stupid weather report. It was funny how unprepared for this event other people were. Some of their tents had to be tethered to walls with bungee cord and were flying away. Others didn't even have tents or complete tool kits. I know one car owner who had hired a driver where all they did in the early morning was yell at each other because the owner failed to bring proper tools and or properly prep his car. His car also overheated in the 2nd session and was shut down while it was overheated facepalm.gif . It managed to make it out the next 2 sessions but we were amazed it didn't blow up. Among a plethora of other things, we had a tent; sandbags; 2 fully stocked tool kits; an air compressor; wifi; a camera pod; and a grill for hot dogs and burgers cool.gif . I'll leave you with this image of my hair going everywhere from the NOT 10 mph wind. Also I'll try to fix some of these images later. Right now some are saying they're not showing up from errors.

Sorry, I couldn't find anything else that fit really. I am in no way a huge fan of Lucky Star, I've seen the show but I'm not crazy about it. sweatingbullets.gif

J, please take more pictures. I WANT MORE PICTURES OF YOUR TEAM'S CAR! Or better yet, tell me where this is so I can drive myself there and watch everything in person while working on getting my tan to even out. I have the world's worst famer's tan from my work t-shirts. derp.gif

Some more context. This was at Streets of Willow Test Circuit for the most part. Also I'll see about inviting you next time Lena. You'd have to be ok waking up at around 4am if you wanted to come with us though. Otherwise you'd need to drive out on your own.

Really clean 86 that showed there.

Yay! I can definitely wake up at 4 in the morning to carpool with you or something. Waking up at the crack of dawn is my specialty, getting up before the sun always gives me a rush! PM me with details and I will get something set up. Anyhow, I can see all the pictures that you posted up so far, so I don't really see where the problem is.

Why would anyone flush an S13? Out of all the cars you could do that to, an S13 is one of the worst. Not that any could be good, but still.

Thank you for fixing that J. What would I do without someone as classy as you? derp.gif

Anyhow, I'm a tour guide so I have to be in uniform while in the sun when I'm at work. Therefore I have a terrible shirt and shorts tan. I've been trying to get rid of it, but alas I can only do do much before getting sunburnt. Did I also mention that I have a very distinctive shoes tan?

I am a car person. I'm a car person that hates to see stupid shit done to nice cars. You can't tell me the camber on that Silvia I was referencing doesn't look absolutely ridiculous.

it really doesn't.

then again i'm part of the 'stance' movement so take from that what you will.

that particular example is running less camber in the front than a V8 Supercar racer does.

One photo from my first Auto-X event back in April. I was working the day of the event after this one, but I'm thinking of going back since I upgraded my suspension from stock since the photo. Credit to the guy that took it (since I never really got pics of my car taken at meets I've been to)
