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?

Probably a little later in June I was thinking..so we can give everyone that wants to come a heads up. I'm definitely down for making it a bit later though lol

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 am looking for a cheap daily driver (dont want to put miles on my new M). Anyone looking to sell their "extra" car?

Thanks
