Got new gear Got new gear

At the advice of the people at HMS Motorsport I went with a basic HJC Motorsports helmet instead of the higher end helmets I had been looking at.. The intent is that I will use this until the Snell 2020 specification comes out when I will likely get something higher end to meet my racing needs of the time and have the…

Today on bad ideas with theTurbochargedSquirrel Today on bad ideas with theTurbochargedSquirrel

With my discount for being a FSAE team member who is going to loan it to my team I could get a Stilo ST5 for less than that Bell I was looking at! Because I totally need a top tier, professional grade composite helmet for my amateur racing activities.

Stop it BaT! Stop it BaT!

This is the 4th GP1 you have listed this year. You are torturing me and my lack of money by showing me the only MINI I would replace mine with. Please stop until I have money.

I was bored with my Switch being grey so I decided to do something about it.

Blood pressure at critical levels Blood pressure at critical levels

This was the most intense game I have ever seen. It stayed 4-4 through the end of OT. I need to go to conference games more often.

UPDATE: Found it UPDATE: Found it

It had been delivered to a dorm on the exact opposite side of campus and the person in the mail room at that dorm didn’t know what to do with it.

Can these be used the way I think they can? Can these be used the way I think they can?

So my Formula Hybrid team has a old (expired 2016) six point Schroth harness. If I were to make an offer to buy them from the team could I buy a replacement camlock from Schroth in a left or right lap belt fixed design and use them as a 4 point in my car? They would only be used for better holding me in the seat at…

Apparently my University has an i-MiEV. Probably intended to replace the GEM golf cart things they have several of.

Who can tell me what this car is and why it is special? No reverse google searching. Bonus points for any one who can tell me what the first project with the same goal as this car was. Double bonus points if you can tell me about this car’s American raced companion who pulled out before the race.

Dale Jr's sphincter is getting a workout today.

Three times today he has missed getting caught in a wreck by mere inches.

Fox's back room radio channel is sneaking into the Petit Le Mans stream

Chris and Alisha are talking about when they want to go to commercial breaks on the left audio channel of the stream.

Window management is for chumps Window management is for chumps

Having 16gb of ram means I have no motivation to ever close anything. I would have 9 more Excel windows open if I didn’t get an error because they had the same names as the ones I was trying to open. This is one project, it gets way worse when I am switching between doing multiple things.

Autocrossing carnage Autocrossing carnage

This was a Method Racing wheel and Yokohama slick formerly used by one of SRT USA’s GRC cars. It’s supposed to be skookum as frig. It met it’s death today at the hands of a heavily modified 1st generation Legacy in its 20th run of the day. Never seen a wheel fail like this outside of a big hit in a rally environment.

The Forza 7 Hooligan pack has a '55 Chevy Gasser The Forza 7 Hooligan pack has a '55 Chevy Gasser

And you can put a “7.0L V8 - H” in it. Be right back, earning CR to build Blasphemi. Now, last Finnegan’s Garage video Mike said it was making somewhere north of 900HP at the crank with the blower...

Go baby Go! Go baby Go!

I love my school’s ethernet. Oh, I’m also updating a pair of Steam games and watching Roadkill. UPDATE: Now crusing along in the high 400Mb/s range UPDATE 2: Fully installed at 9:40. 95GB in 50 minutes is pretty good.

Anybody have any experience with the Bell GT5 Touring? (Reshare to get the opinion of the day people) Anybody have any experience with the Bell GT5 Touring? (Reshare to get the opinion of the day people)

So I need to replace my old SA2005 Bell helmet for next year and have been looking around all year thinking about what I should get. I hate shields (they fog up, get smudged, and get in the way) and would just grab a basic open face helmet from a name brand (the name brand just makes me more comfortable and I am…

The Hoonicorn is actually the Rotsun The Hoonicorn is actually the Rotsun

Ford V8, big turbo(s), and smoking like a train out the exhaust. Basically the same car.

I too went autocrossing today I too went autocrossing today

Went to the SCCV event at Thunder Road Speedway in Barre VT. Autocrossing on a banked oval is tons of fun. The course was super fast and I actually had a ton of grip with my not great for autocross tires.

This is going to be interesting This is going to be interesting

Update: I’m hitting 6k in second (~60-65mph) at the end of the backstraight and haven’t spun yet.
