1.New project.
2.Sunset at Ohlone Fremont.
3.Lola has a roll bar.  (modified autopower).
4.Why modified?  I would like to run back seats (streeeet caarrr).  More on this: I am 50/50 on the cage.  Half of me wants to ditch it for weight reduction (shit is heavy).  Then the other half (which is winning) is pushing for tandem drift compliance, stiffer chassis (reduce the stress on the already weak tincan frame), cool points.  But wait, Mike, your car.  Does it run yet?  no.  >___>…
5.New project x2.  (did you hear?  solo8 may be coming back).
6.Wes came by my work.  (IG:@carsatdales)
7.Fatlace is building an RC drift track on their second floor.  Also: Mark’s son’s corolla is frriggggnnnn cooooolllll.  easily one of the coolest up here.
8.Old pic of Japanese friendship garden in Fremont.
9.Dad came back for a few days from his service in Kuwait to see gung gung.  He doesn’t have that much time left :-/.
10.Aylmer in his garage/studio.

FOR SALE: SSR AGLE STRUSSE 18x13 +6 Bought them from Japan about a year ago as spares but ended up never using them. Only test fit them. Some rash on the wheels. They were like that when I got them. One slight imperfection on one of the faces, looks to be from a rock chip. $1200 OBO. 

Almost bought these but Spencer is a hard ass and won’t lower his price :(

You never offered me a price. You told me to pay shipping which I refused. I said if you want to pay shipping then I’ll ship them to you. Not being a hard ass. I’m an easy going guy I’m sure we can work something out man.

Not even. Zack is a nice dude. lol I thought I was being pretty polite, no?

10/10 polite
