End of a Decade

The end of 2009 is more than just a year, it is the end of another decade.

A lot has happened in the last 10 years.

I had my first job this decade. I got into cars. I got my first car (S13 hatch). I graduated high schoool. I started street drifting. I helped with the startup of a new compnay (ClubFR). Grip Gambler started. I graduated college. I destroyed a car (s13 hatch). I got a new car (S13 coupe). I got another car (DC2 Integra). I bought a brand new car (Honda Fit). I went to Japan. I got a full time job. I moved out of my parents house. I met new friends. I reacquainted with old friends. I drove a whole lot of events. I broke my car at a whole lot of events.

I did a lot of things, a lot more than just that, but I hope to do much more in this next decade.

Over the next ten years I plan on traveling a lot more. Australia, Japan again, Zimbabwe, Italy, Brazil, UK again, and wherever else life takes me.

Cheers to the New Year and the New Decade. I wish you all a joyful next 10 years!!

Devil's Head

So I have decided to start updating this thing more.

Went snowboarding yesterday, it has been 2 years. My 3rd time doing it, I can somehow manage to go really fast down the hill, but only going right riding goofy. I need to figure out how to go the other way w.o switching to riding normal.

I also heard about an accident with the lifts the day before, but didn't hear what happened until today, see the video below, pretty messed up (14 injured).

Dump

As I mentioned in my last post, Dent Sport was working on my Exhaust manifold. I picked up a Peak Performance manifold from TF Mike, and a Tial 38mm Wastegate from Touge Factory. Sent that and my turbo to DSG. Here is the result





Oh and soon the intake will be done.



Oh and some music:

Hot Stuff!

The Dark Knight was re released in IMAX this weekend, so we decided to go watch it down at Navy Pier. While in the area we decided to go eat at Heaven on Seven, it is a Cajun restaurant that if you ever have the chance to go to, you have to go! Especially if you like spicy food, the tables have a ridiculous amount of hot sauces on them, below is only about half of our selection.


The above does not show the spicy stuff though, if you ask for it they can bring you the "brown box". I didn't get a good pic, but in it contains thier 4 hottest sauces, the waiter gave us a warning about one of them called "Da Bomb". He says its industrial strength stuff.

Earl tried a drop and jumped up and described it as putting a BWW blazing wing in your mouth all at once. 119,000 scoville units



Oh and other hot stuff, old pics back from the past.


Jesse and my car back in the day, rocking 15s, Meshies, Shortlosers, and Wats! In front of garage:Knockoff.

LDTP!!! This was my 2nd day drifting, literally the second day, first day was the day before.
