- DOH! I just discovered that the link below to my new exhaust pics was
not correct. Well it's fixed now. Check it out. --- And I've removed the
section to the left containing my old GTech HP values. I simply replaced
it with the dragstrip 1/8 mile time I made last year. And I hope to take
the MINI to the track again soon now that I have the intake and the exhaust.
--- That's it for now. 1/20/2004
- This update is very long overdue.
Sorry for the delay. But Ive finally posted pics of my new Rspeed exhaust
. It was installed way back in the end of November. And I do love it. It's
not too loud and it's not too quiet. For me, it's perfect. --- And
in other news, I've added a link to the Reservior Dogs Rally movie. It was
posted by someone on the MINI forums. Pretyy sweet. Great job. See below. 11/23/2003
- Went to the Reservoir
Dogs Rally today and had a total blast. It was by far *THE* best organized
rally or car cruise that I've ever been in. It was very well planned from
the get-go. We had handout printouts with a nice write-up & maps in it.
We had some history before the rally and commentary along the way. It was
a nice run. Not too fast and not too slow. Just right. I wanna thank everyone
involved. And it was nice hanging out with everyone. A wonderful day in November.
I've got some pics. See the event link down below. --- And the other event
link I have are pics to when I drove my MINI to a Nissan 300ZX/350Z car meet
in PA. Another fun day hanging out with car nuts.
- Sorry for the long delay.
I know it's been a while since my last update. Back on 9/20/03 I installed
some new mods in the MINI. I picked up the cup holder set from MINI-Stuff.
And it's absolutely awesome. I can finally put normal size cups somewhere
in the MINI. And most importantly, it's at arms reach, not behind me in the
rear cup holder. And that rear cup holder now has another use. It was the
mounting point for my new arm rest I picked up from RSpeed. And it's perfect.
It gives me the perfect place to rest my elbow when driving. It's actually
placed at the perfect angle so that I can upshift & downshift the CVT
in a relaxed manner. Another great mod. And lastly, I picked up the rear saddle
bag to store misc things. Check out the pics below in the 'Events' section.
That's it for now.
