    That is called racing. The reason for cages and fire safety in racing is because the moment you start doing this the chances of hard contact or bumping resulting in rolls, etc. goes up dramatically.

    It seems to me every month we are exchanging posts with you about adding proper safety equipment to your car given the frequency and speed of your track day activities. Now you want full-blown racing experiences, but without the safety equipment.

    Let me pile on with the group of others here. You don't get it. And you probably won't until you have stuffed your car into a wall or whatever. It is not a matter of if, but when. Ask the rest of us how we know....

    I know you mean well Oli. Don't worry. I have a full 6pt rollcage going into the car soon, with nascar door bars. Gussets in the A pillar and B pillar. It will reach the rear shock tower. 1 bar along the A pillar and another pillar that goes in front of the dash that meets the top of A pillar to the nascar door bars. Removing my inadequate 4pt rollbar. It will be custom not some bolt on universal one size fit all affair.

    By end of June, it will be completed. Garage Life will be doing the work. Fire system will be installed soon after.

    It is pretty much gonna look like this. My friend who has evo 9 got the same cage as me, but he opt for the X bars.




    I like to give my knees some room so it will have less chance to make contact with my knees. And yes i know that hard foam padding will go over the bars that are within reach of driver. I have not forgotten.

    I commend you. I will stop nagging now.

    You are a great driver. You have a fast car. With that comes tremendous speed. And now you are yearning for more aggressive driving. You track so frequently coupled with the other attributes associated with you this is the most sound decision you are making with regards to tracking.

    You are on a racing path whether you recognize it or not.

    I am more of a meh driver, with somewhat decent fast car. Every time i look back at my videos, i see 2s at least on the table that same day. Mehhh...

    Yeah, i guess I am just in denial, but there is no denying that I like racing and I am racing. lol.

    There was this one time, where my friend in his sti Mark Jager, street class overall champ 8 events in a row last year. We were having some fun, and I was making a move on him after getting a run on him, i juke left and he blocked...3-4 car length seperate us....i juke right...he blocks again....1-2 car lengths between us, i juke left one last time before i have to hit brakes...and i got by him. That dick hole. LOL.

    Here is a seperate pass on him. And this is his point by.


    hahahaha good times.
