On the eve of another autocross... On the eve of another autocross...

Here’s video of my best run at the last event, two weeks ago. I’m lazy and finally got around to pulling the footage from my camera...

Too new to modify? Never! Too new to modify? Never!

I have a disease. It’s called “modifyitis”. This rare affliction affects people across all classes and demographics, but seems limited to the sub-species of humans known as “gear-heads”. I’m unsure where exactly I caught modifyitis, as no-one in my extended family seems to be a carrier.

What you see here is a Texas vehicle registration sticker that expired in 2016. It’s too bad that I took the photo the other day of a car on my street.
