    Yeah man. Time to get busy and get ready for next season.

    Yeah, I really like that Dragon map. I'm going to contact the company to see if they can do the track cutout as well.

    How are you planning using those quick latches for the bumper? I've been contemplating doing some type of quick release for my front bumper because it has to come off to get it up on the alignment rack and I hate those rubber band types

    They will go in the side of the bumper, in a similar location to where people put those junky rubber bands. And I have brackets I picked up from a guy on IG that mount inside the fender area to hold the QuickLatch stud.

    Damn that's similar to how I imagined. I was thinking of using a straight piece of aluminum to bridge the bumper and fender on the inside. Quick latch on the bumper and a fancy downstar fender washer or something similar with a lock nut up on the fender. Either that or a 90 bend bracket mounted to where the bumper normally screws to

    No work has been done since last. TSX will be gone on Friday, so I'll try and get things in order to start making forward progress. But parts are coming in here and there. More on Friday =)

    HPI Japan oil cooler kit...

    K-Tuned radiator mounting kit. Undecided on it currently. Possibly moving to the ASR kit, found after my order was placed with K-Tuned...

    Well, Friday we officially became K free! So glad to have that freaking thing gone. Overall its a nice car, but I HATE K and the transmissions in them. Had it been an auto, I might not have hated it as much. But its off to a good home in Dragon country now =) I'll see it in the fall.

    DC2 Koyo showed up Friday as well...

    Trying to get a few things done...haha.

    Removed the OEM ITR heat exchanger and looped the line back to the block. Pulled the black box and pulled the 14mm allen freeze plugs to install the Endyne breather -AN adaptors.

    Still slow going around here. Ran out to Honda to pick up an order back on Friday. Then I finished pulling a couple plugs off of the engine harness and started to get it fitted on the engine to prepare for loom. Freeze plug went into the OEM PCV black box location. Attempted to put the oil cooler sandwich plate on, but it hits the main coolant tube just above it. Its designed to sit on top of the OEM oil heat exchanger for spacing. So I decided to just go with an oil filter relocation vice using the heat exchanger. I debated it before, but now I'm sure of it. I also ordered my hub and disconnect at the same time as the filter relocation kit. Also arriving was my ASR order that included the radiator mount kit, harness retention/reel, a shirt and of course, stickers!

    I've had these NT03 for a while now and have done nothing with them...other than list them back for sale...haha. No real bites, so I grabbed some used BFG Rivals to toss on them to have around as some extra/ backup wheels. I dropped them at Honda while I was out there to have my buddy mount them up. I'll get them back when he is able to do my 949's also. I'm having him rotate/flip the R-S3's on the 949's.
