    Name: John S.
    Home: San Diego, CA
    Car: 05 Lotus half-breed supported by Titan tow-vehicle
    Track Experience: ~10K track miles at VIR, Summit Point, Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Road Atlanta, Barber, Nurburgring, Buttonwillow, and Spring Mtn.
    Favorite Track: 'Ring - VIR a close second.

    Met mlk f1 this weekend at Spring Mtn - had a blast watching him drive. I'm still new to West Coast tracks and my car since it spends more time in the body shop from idiots on the road redecorating it without my consent. My previous car was a T2-prepared 350Z that ran some very competitive times at my old home tracks (2:12.9 at VIR Full and 1:24.1 at Summit) - unfortunately, I put it into a tire wall eventually and it was retired for good. I instructed DE events for several years and love the community - so if you happen to see my grey half-breed at the track in the future, stop by and say hello!

    Default Honda C200 from SMS

    Hello, Im James (or "howie" as my friends know me). I met a few of you guys yesterday at Willow Springs and Im sure my driver met some of you too (Sohan Kota). We brought out our Honda project for our first test after a year of work, and we were definitly pleased with the results. Im doing business in california for now so hopefully i'll make it out to more events this summer and I know sohan will be flying in from back east as frequently as possible. Once i get videos from the track together i'll post em up for sure

    My name is Aron. I am 25 years old and live in reseda, CA. I run an "89 240 fastback. I have been a member of zilvia.net for a while and was referred here by another zilvia member. Basically I am growing tired of the typical dumbass drifter attitude and am trying to expand my horizons. I basically grew up at the track working on my dad's formula atlantic racecars. I started working on them at about 10 yrs old and by the time I was 15 I was in charge of pretty much everything that needed to be done to the car at the track. At age 19 I began attending the LA Pierce College automotive program and at about age 21 I began working for one of my instructors at his trans shop. I have worked at a total of 4 shops in the last 5 years or so. I currently have 4 ASE's (A/C, manual trans and drivetrain, auto trans, and electrical) and will be going for my master tech this spring. In the last couple of years I have been doing all the fab work on my car and have been researching suspension geometry pretty extensively (although I still have a lot to learn). Hopefully I can learn more here!

    did my first two track days in michigan with my 84 volvo 240 wagon, then bought a miata, installed a rollbar and took it to the track. promptly spun it when i braked in the middle of a corner.

    now i'm just trying to keep up with the other miata guys on here. i've also tracked my sister's 350Z and sti, one day each, both stock. i taught her how to drive stick, and bought her her 1st track day for her bday present.

    I just realized I never posted in this thread. Ive met some of the people that are on here before, but anyways.

    Name: Eddie Nagao
    Home: Los Angeles, CA
    Car: 1989 RX-7 GTUs (daily driver), 1988 RX-7 10AE (project), 2004 RX-8 (dad's car)
    Experience: Buttonwillow, Laguna Seca, Horse Thief Mile, and Willow Springs Balcony.
    Favorite tracks: All of them.

    I had my first track experience back in 2005 or 2004 maybe.. (first MazFest) riding shotgun in my old man's 2004 RX-8. In 2006 I picked up my project Turbo II, although, in the close to 2 years ive owned it, it hasnt moved on its own power very much. Later that year, I got a chance to get a taste of driving, well drifting, at Drift 101, rented a mildly setup 240sx for the day. When 2007 MazFest finally came, I got to drive the RX-8 on the track for the first time, was beating my dad's times a good part of the day too, ahah. Late 2007 we took a trip up to Laguna Seca with the RX-8, was a long and crazy, but nice, drive up Highway 1 to get there, but it was very much worth it, also visited Horse Thief Mile in early December. 2008 has been pretty slow so far, havent visted any tracks, but I finally picked up a nice daily driver last month so thats been keeping me occupied. Hopefully ill be able to get back to the trackdays soon, within a month or so.
