Arrow new from california


was informed via Facebook. checked out the tech articles & now im registered.
im currently living 25 miles from Willow Springs International Raceway but im hoping to move to possibly Calgary later due to a place called Race City (so any help & info on how to do it would be appreciated)
my current car is a mosly stock '92 camry but it would be fun to gut it out & V6 it for track days... i know you guys wanna flame me but watch 1:30 of this video 1st


i love tinkering so i dont care about expensive bought prebuilt supercars. car culture is about having FUN right? : )

Welcome! That video was pretty epic! I like to see racing like this.


And I completely agree, prebuilt supercars is for the rich, ill stay poor with my engine swap and 1000 hp =D

why would i? $15-17/hr for alot of entry jobs seems amazing... and im not ENTIRELY certain yet exactly where, Calgary has lost some appeal since ive recently found that Race City may get shut down @ the end of the year. im just looking for affordable places that pay pretty well. i know it gets cold but it kinda intrigues me (yea im odd i know). either way im tired of California's crap. they wont let me mod my car, then you have to worry if insurance will pull coverage even if you technically make the car safer via seats/harness, etc.

i totally agree with this statement

half of the so called illegal mods make cars safer and more eficient in my opinion for example in my old crx i had a b16 swap and i was getting like 26mpg then i put some stage 1 web cams in it and after i got 35mgp even when i stayed on the gas constantly lol
