NEED PICS ASAP.

BTW, Since it doesn't look like Nawaaz is coming around, anyone want to go have our own meet aside from C&C? Possibly go eat or something?

i'm down...finally done with all the traveling over the past 2 months so i'll be in town. it's a little hectic with graduation coming up and associated debauchery but otherwise don't have any real obligations until the end of the month. i still haven't uploaded photos from the last C&C, including some exhaust vids (sbm, pittsy) that i should have as soon as i find my SD reader.

in fact, does anyone here know of convenient software to compress videos taken with a digital camera? my canon s90 records mpeg4 (i think?) in .mov format, but the filesizes are gigantic because there's no onboard compression algorithm(like all the other canon point and shoots i know of). i want to compress them but don't have/know what exactly to do. help?

After very nearly 18 months of running H&R spacers without fail I've finally had an issue. Turns out that these spacers don't mate well with my TRMotorsport track wheels

^Just a lot of wheel wobble, nothing catastrophic. I've found another pair of spacers that should work as I need at least 10mm to run a 275/40 up front. I'll make a thread to explain why the H&R spacers don't work with these wheels later.

Just hope the new spacers are here in time for the H2R track day this weekend

Got a fucking ticket yesterday...its my second in 3 months. I got the first one off the record bc I took defensive driving (finished it last week and mailed in the form yesterday lol) so Im hoping I can do deferred disposition this time.

It was up near the Tour 18 golf course in Roanoke, TX...I missed a turn so I was cutting through a neighborhood and he got me going 40 in a 25. I though he was stopping me for rolling through a stop sign but that wasn't the case. I asked what he shot me with and he showed me the laser gun...weird thing is, my passport 9500ix didnt make a sound Damn it

Cop was very nice though, very professional and commented on the car. I asked for a warning, said no, then I asked for him to drop the speed, and he still said no. Oh well, I tried.

I saw 2 people on the way home with the black star license plate! It was way better when nobody knew about it. Saw it on Godzilla in your video too Blake, poser. Go back to Florida
