It was nice to get out, but it doesn't come close to a track day! My buddy hosted the event, so I got out to see him and his dad, which his dad was the guy I did all the SHO stuff with back in the day.

Awww thank god it was nothing big , time for a custom diffuser !

The S2000's next to them were also stanced piles.

I also filled up before and after and calculated my E85 MPG's. The fill-up prior was much of my fun mountain driving. The fill-up after was my trip to an from the meet on the other side of Denver.

Sadly that is what is cool in our instagram culture , It makes me just hate people more lol

Case and point:






And someone did get a shot of my car. Also saw someone taking a picture as I was pulling out onto the street, but haven't seen it posted.




The S2000 will get a diffuser, but a big wang and splitter are at the top of the list.

Gave up on even trying to go to that stuff years ago. Typically arrogant d-bags that don't know a thing and want to show off their ricer/camber BS....

There was some good stuff here, and as I remember from living here before, lots of exotics come out. I'm just not in awe over them like many as I have been exposed to them for a long time. I just don't bother to talk to or relate to the guys that slam their cars and think a removable steering wheel is a status thing.


I did meet a guy who just moved into the area who basically chatted with me the entire time. Nice guy and I'll probably meet up with him again, but I had a hard time warming up to him when he said he used to have a 5xx whp 2006 STi... I said, "cool, what turbo?". He replied back with T3/T4 hybrid"... "Okay, that's the flange... What turbo?". He didn't come up with anything.

Yikes, @ that meet. That WRX is hideous. Like you guys, I have no idea why any of that BS is a thing. One main reason why I don't go to meets here....because it's worse in Omaha, as some of you know(well, that and my car has been in a hole for almost 2 years)

Even my own brother is falling into the rice crowd. It kills me inside.

There are zero happy endings coming from owning a GR chassis slammed to the ground on poverty all season tires.
