Daily Scraped Crusaders #567

@brandonmckiernannn has one of lowest E34s on Instagram.  It’s still a work in progress, however we can still admire the stance.  Luckily for me Brandon also happens to be very helpful.  He was very open in answering any questions I had about his offsets, widths and coilovers.  The modified car community is a better place when we’re nice to one another.  I was never happy giving out my wheel specs, and camber angles etc. but I knew if I could help save a fellow enthusiast some heartache, I was better off helping them.  Hopefully, I can be this low come summer time.

Impressive V8 Debut

The Clipsal 500 at Adelaide is a formidable race to make a series debut at.  The old guns of Holden and Ford are up for any challengers.  NIssan and Mercedes were easily dispelled in their first season last year.  I had figured Volvo S60 would be in the same boat this year, but after Race 2 at Adelaide the pecking order in V8 Supercars needs a shakeup.  Volvo has jumped to a podium finish.  Scott McLaughlin, the 20 yr old 2013 rookie of the year, had an epic fight with THE V8 Supercar hot shoe, Jamie Whincup and won out.  Is there a better looking touring car currently turning laps?  I don’t think so.
