Awesomeness is happening at this spot tomorrow morning. Love that I live ten minutes away so I can just take a spin out to the site and check the conditions!

It's just a few miles north on the same road, Route 106. It's at The Lodge at Belmont, also known as "The Dog Track". Basically it's a small casino and you can bet on greyhound and horse races and shit. And once or twice a year, NER tears that dirt lot up!

Just gonna drop this off while I get the rest of the pictures uploaded. Oh, and I got proper incar video this time. cool.gif

New tie rod ends and alignment! In that process I fixed it so the steering wheel is straight. Ready for Rochester Fairgrounds 4/16/11! I ordered the same camera mount I borrowed for Belmont, will have that in time for Rochester.

Oh yeah, and I have proper door numbers in the works in time for that event. Stay tuned!

Removing the interior of that car would put me into Mod FWD, which that car wouldn't stand a chance in unless I swapped in a SE-R motor from a same-generation car. Or just put a jet turbine on it.

I don't have any action shots yet, save for my own in-car footage, but as usual I did walk around and snap pictures before racing began. Just finished piecing a video together and uploading some photos now.

Helping represent NER SCCA and our Rallycross program at New Hampshire International Speedway's open house last weekend!

I think I am going to run this car for the remainder of the season, and then try and sell it as a RallyX car to someone in an SCCA region outside the salt belt. This car is rock solid and I'd hate to rust it out. My intention would be to get a FWD Legacy or Impreza and try and get Subaru dominating the FWD class as well!

We'll see, it's either that or I just run the Sentra until something catastrophic happens. New rear struts going in this week, see how it handles and do the fronts if needed.

New rear struts! Rides like a dream now, ready for Bradford Fairgrounds!

2nd place in Championship points right now, 19 points behind 1st (A first place finish is 30 points). Having a ton of fun! Starting to get a bit attached to this car. wub.gif

Seriously, I set to work and had both rear struts completely out of the car in fifteen minutes. This thing could not be simpler to work on.

Best part about ideal rally cars.

We did pads and struts all around, front rotors, one rear wheel bearing (just the bearing assembly), plugs, and shift arm bushings on a buddy's Evo in 3 hours with 4 of us.

My thoughts exactly.

Can of black spraypaint to the tune of 99 cents and a half hour of my time really freshens up the car's appearance. Not perfect by any means, but it passes the five-foot rule so I'm happy with it!

Hey you! Yes, you! I started a website of sorts on Tumblr, you should follow it and tell all your friends and their dogs to check it out!

I am working on catching it up to present day and then it'll be updates on my rallying adventures!

www.perkinsrally.tumblr.com

In other news, the Sentra is all ready for Bradford Faigrounds. I am currently 2nd place in championship points with a reasonable shot at first, so we'll see how the rest of the season plays out!

A big shoutout to my new sponsor, Paquette Signs, who also provided the decals for my other sponsor, Perkins Painting, and for my family business, Great Northern Cleaning. I am heading out in an hour or two to camp in Plymouth, then off to Bradford in the morning!

Holy sh*t Bubs you moving up! Wish I can get going on my project. Having a issue with the Z ( which was my fault ) and had came across errors here and there. Hopefully I'll go better this time around.

As I sold the Versa and the Sentra is now my daily driver, I finally got myself some street tires so I can stop wearing out my dirt tires. Got them for cheap on Craigslist and changed them in a Wal-Mart parking lot, which went well! Aside from endlessly filing away corrosion on the hub holes so the wheels would fit. tongue.gif

I then drove up north for The 2011 New England Forest Rally, where I volunteered as a Spectator Marshal for the Saturday stages. This involved me driving my Sentra up a rally stage, which was neat! I put 400 miles on the car between Friday night and Saturday without it breaking a sweat.

Since I will be driving to Rhode Island for a Rallycross in September, I am doing some preventative maintenance on the car this coming week, including front wheel bearings. In two weeks I am racing at the "Racing Against Leukemia" weekend, during which all of the different SCCA programs put on events, with the proceeds going to charity. The two events I am competing in are the "DoubleCross", which will be two Solo AutoX runs on street tires, then two RallyX runs the next morning on dirt tires. Times from all four runs added together, lowest time wins. Immediately proceeding those RallyX runs will be the Rallycross Against Leukemia event, which is our regular points event.

The Sentra will continue until the 2011 Championship's end in December. Starting in September, I am setting to work on my new project on the side. This will become my permanent daily driver / rallycross vehicle, where I will be starting in Stock AWD for the 2012 NER Rallycross season. Unless I somehow destroy the Sentra, at that time I am hoping to sell it to someone else who wants to get started in Rallycross. It's been a fantastic car for it! I just want more competition in the form of a much higher attendance in the Stock AWD class, and the fact of the matter is that I want a Subaru again. :mrgreen:
