So i went to the Shop Thursday... I was there for like 11 hours i think. Didn't get everything done since half the time the other 2 ppl i went with were bullshitting... Our shop is connected to a Hobby store so they went n played with those RC cars that go like 60+ mph and some rc trucks to go off road with. I sat there and worked though.

Welcome to this forum!

(i just joined m3r since i just got my 3, and ive seen you there)

Nice update with the speed3 wheels. wish i could find something like that around here. then again, around here i would probably be robbed looking on craigslist, so i always just buy new.

Yea. And i only paid $500 for the wheels and tires. But im in SoFLA, can get robbed easily off craigslist. luckily i kinda knew the kid.

nice build man. i wanted to ask how is the corksport oil catch can doing for you?

Nothing yet lol. I haven't had time to install it. I was suppose to but time ran low...
But it really probably won't do much for me...

mazda 3 s touring
oh nice. my friend just installed one on his STI and said he got almost a spoon full of oil only after a month. but even a little bit for our cars is better than nothing. and if you dont like it, i'll take it off your hands (2thumbs)
