    Finally registered after years of occasional lurking. I'm Ivan and I'll be at CWVR with Speed Ventures this weekend as long as nothing explodes before then. I've done a few track days at SoWS, BRP, and CWVR over the years, and I'm hoping to start stepping up the frequency pretty soon here. I've got a white FR-S with some light modifications:

    - Perrin exhaust because stock sounds like a Corolla
    - SPC front camber bolts and custom alignment because I like my front sidewalls
    - Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires because damn, dem sidewalls
    - Eibach tubular front swaybar because front camber exaggerates the car's tendency to take its "86" badges seriously and want to go sideways at every opportunity
    - Carbotech XP10/XP8 because racecar and/or school bus
    - Old school IMSA sticker and yellow DRL bulbs because mad street cred with nobody, ever
    - WeatherTech floor liners because my heel chewed a hole in the jankety OE floor mats and Alex Job Racing needs my money
    - My Shaldan "squash" scent because it turns my car into a Japanese embassy

    Say hi, Mia Wallace...

    ^^^ Welcome, Ivan. We'll be at Chuckwalla on March 28 and 29 with SV. Come talk to the old dudes in the grey Challenger (my friend is 7' tall) and the silver S2000 (me) on Saturday; and the black C6, silver 997 and me again in S2K on Sunday. Should be a great open track weekend, if a little bit hot for late March.

    Thanks Richard! Looking forward to hot laps and good BBQ. Erik Bruner and I will be rolling in on Friday. I'm running in Purple group on Saturday, and Moti and I will be tag-teaming poor Mia Wallace on on Sunday in Purple and Orange groups, so long as the hardware holds up to the heat.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... stop right there. Double-teaming a sports car and givin' a foot massage ain't even the same effin' thing.

    Hi all,

    I have been browsing trackHQ more often recently, and figured it was time to make a little introduction. I purchased a 2002 Honda S2000 (my long time "dream" car) to be my ultimate weekend/track car last October, and have gotten 4 track days in since then.

    Name: Marvin Lopez
    Home: Aliso Viejo, soon to be moving to Santa Monica/Culver City
    Car: 2002 Honda S2000 - weekend/track, 1986 Toyota Pickup 4x4 - daily
    Track Experience: Two track days at Streets of Willow, Two at Chuckwalla

    And since we all love pictures:

    I will one day! Since I'm still just getting into the sport, I'll probably stick to the more local tracks for now. I also drive my car to the track, usually with my wife sitting in the passenger seat. As you can imagine, that doesn't leave much more space in an s2000 to carry the camping gear, food, etc that is needed on those longer trips.

    Default Proper introduction

    Hi all!

    I first joined the site a little over a year ago and had a little bit of a chip on my shoulder when I got here.. I'm sorry if I offended anyone.
    Since then I've been a frequent lurker and now I think I've come full circle.

    Yesterday at WSIR I had my best track day ever. It started rough, I dropped the car off the only (crappy) jack that I brought with me and fumbled around like an idiot while all the red group guys were driving out to line up for their first session lol! Even my dog and my girlfriend were starting to wonder about me but I kept my cool, borrowed a jack, and eventually got things squared away.

    Once I got on the track I felt great, the car felt good, and the track conditions were excellent. I was running in the green group and I passed a lot of cars in the first session. During second session everything was good but the car started running a little warm toward the end so I decided to call it a day.

    While I was gathering up my things a couple of guys walked up and started checking out the car, asking what I have done to it, then a couple more guys walked up, and then another.. all of them saying they really liked the car and that they thought it was cool to see something different out there and yadda yadda yadda.. I felt vindicated and it was exactly what I was hoping to find when joined this site. Thanks TrackHQ!!

    About me:
    My name is Andrew Troutner, I live in San Luis Obispo, Ca. where I was born and raised, and I drive a decommissioned 2007 Merced County Sheriff's car lol! It has a T45 5 speed, HiTech stage 2 cams, shorty headers, stock cats (all 4 of them) going into a 3" x-pipe with 3" chambered mufflers dumping just before the rear axle, a 4.10 Detroit Locker, coilover kits on KYB cop shocks with QA1 550 lb springs up front, Bilstien dampers with jack bolted Mustang springs and in the rear, Metco Motorsports rear control arms, DIY splitter/air dam and clear, stock car style rear spoiler, running on 315/35/17 NT01s front and rear...

    She ain't purdy but she's all mine!

    PS: Hey Beavis, you think I could get some Track HQ stickers for my ride?

    You can tell by looking at the stock police interceptor oil pan that Ford was building these cars right...

    You need to go to a Ford dealer's parts department and order a "Police Interceptor" badge for the trunk lid.

    Needs a vertical gun rack right up front for "to and from" the track.

    btw: The classic Crager mag wheel look is a very nice touch.
