    2020 Optima Invitational at COTA!

The Optima Invitational is going to take place, along with a standalone autocross on Sunday with a $25,000 purse, a show and shine, some offroad stuff and roll...

    Original starter, $10 + shipping

    I have the original starter from my car here. Works great, swapped it out for a lightweight mini starter, and I just don't have a use for this, but it works just fine. Would be great for a restoration, or even as a core to get a new one. I'm tired of tripping on it, and it's too nice to just...

    What happens when a Buick shows up at a Porche club track day?

    I know I haven't posted much using the Buick on track this year, so I dug into the archives and stitched together this little ditty. Enjoy, and feel free to pull it out whenever you run into somebody that says these are garbage on a track with turns.

    2020 is on!

    The start of the season was delayed, but things are opening up, and as long as everybody keeps their distance and COVID-19 doesn't flare up, we're green to race. Since the car came home from Saudi, it's been stashed in my Dad's shop while I repainted my girlfriend's Benz. The clear had...

    Harbor Freight jack stand recall!

    I have a pair. They're going back before they drop a car on my face. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

    2019 Riyadh Global Auto Salon

    I guess my thread on this got lost in the crash, so I'll post again. Here's why there was never a followup to my thread on going to the SCCA Nats, another opportunity came up: While the Buick's been gone, I decided to undertake a new project, a 1994 Ford...

    2019 Bristol Match Tour

    This week is the Bristol Match/Champ tour double event at Bristol Motor Speedway. I couldn't do the Champ tour which is Sat/Sun due to stuff, but I signed up for the Match Tour which ran Thursday and Friday. The Match Tour format is a bit different than a classic national event. Instead of six...

    So, I managed to get signed up. They had major computer server problems this year, but I got in. The first week of September I'll be in Lincoln, Nebraska with 1300 of my closest friends, racing at an airport converted into a very large parking lot. Of 23 in my class and 1300 at the event, I'm...

    2019 Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car, Round 3 (NCM)

    We're down in Bowling Green this weekend. Autocross wrapped, D&E is done, and we successfully completed the road rally. Right now I'm sitting in 7th in GTV, out of 22 that made the event. Just 1.9 seconds away from first. The only issue so far has been the vacuum line to the charcoal canister...

    Kentucky Region 2019 Season

    I'm going to stick all my local region vids in this thread. I'll still do national events in their own threads, but I figured I'd consolidate a little. The first local region points event was today, and things went well. I had a co-driver this time, which means essentially hot lapping the car...

    2019 Grenada Pro Solo

    This past weekend was the Grenada Pro Solo at the Grenada Municipal Airport in Mississippi. It was wet. Here's a montage of all of my runs in order. After the Saturday session, which involved standing water and me being SMRT and bringing some rain tires, I was sitting pretty in 17th of 38, just...

    60lb Deka/Seimens matched injector set (high impedance)

    I bought these from TurboTweak many moons ago, and they've performed flawlessly. I just swapped out to a larger set to run E85, so these are up for sale. These suckers will allow E85 on a stock cam/stock turbo engine (or possibly a TA49 equivalent, you'll have to do the math), or high tens on...

    Stuff! Shocks! OEM air cleaner! Oil cooler lines! Fuel stuff! Valvetrain!
