E34 M5s are fast. Add another 650-700 hp and you have this.
Its off season for us. Not much on the docket. Dan is working away on his Caddy, Adrian on his motor build, I’m looking for a new car, Mauncho is shopping for items for his new ride, and a few other things in the works. That’s about it. Nothing major and no real progress in the last few weeks. The start of winter is usually the lull before the winter builds start going. Headed over to Dan’s in the winter beater. The Subie will not be seeing summer anymore, good riddance. Still dumped though. :)
Dan and Geoff decided to build on a smaller scale. 1/24th to be precise. I sort of wanted to join in too. But I have issues with patience….I have none. I’d end up tossing the kits out after a few days of painting, gimme Minichamps and Autoart die-casts over these any day. I MIGHT end up changing my mind later though.
Dan bought a 993 GT3, Tom Kristensen DTM car and a VW golf. Geoff bought a Mike Rockenfeller DTM car.
Not a whole lot was accomplished as time was taking up watching Pacific Rim. Engine components mostly.
James Courtney escaped from major injuries this weekend after Alexander Premat plowed into the side of his car. Not much blamed can be put on Premat though. Once you leave the track at that speed at that corner, you’re pretty much a passenger.
I’m sitting here recovering from laser eye surgery trying to figure out which shots I have yet to post…it’s not the easiest task. I’ll start by posting some of the actual show (don’t think we’ve done that yet). I shot mostly Audi because, well, I like them.
Very cool idea for a yellow car
A hot girl with a bagged Audi and a plate with the word “slut” on it=win
I loved this car based simply on the fact that it had RS’ cooling covers.
Unless you live under a rock, you’ll know that Sebastian Vettel was crowned 4 time F1 Champ last weekend. It was an amazing achievement. One that I think put him ahead of Senna (flame suit on), but still behind Schumacher, Fangio, Clark and Stewart. I’m sure at only 26 he’ll win a few more. We are currently witnessing a demolition of the record books. This is on another level to Schumie’s dominance. The caliber of drivers currently has never been so high. Almost a shame that more from North America are not watching.
Last week Sean Edwards was killed in Queensland, Australia. In tragic circumstances which he could not even control. He was the passenger at a private test session. Sean wasn’t well known in North America but her was most definitely one of the best Porsche drivers out there. I reckon he would have been snatched up by Porsche as a Factory driver eventually. Moreover he was well known in the online racing community. He raced both on rFactor and iRacing. Even contributing to rFactor mods. I’ve been fortunate (or unfortunate in my case) to race him online. in general, I’m able to keep up with most of the drivers in online sim games. Sean was on another level. It makes you realize why he does this for a living.
Some of you may remember that onboard video of a 911 dicing it up on a drenched Nurburgring…..that was Sean. I also added a few other videos showcasing his talents.
Back with my idol Chris Harris.
“I wouldn’t even look at an Aventador….” Ouch.
This is usually the FINAL event on the Scraped.Crusaders calendar. We start taking wheels off, raising coils and/or putting our cars away entirely right around this time. It was a small BBQ event. Most likely the last time I’ll be seeing most of these cars until next spring. This year it was held at Euroline Performance in Mississauga.
I may be seeing more of E46s in the future
I THINK this EK was on toyos. He also had awesome Status seats.
Toronto’s coolest Porsche just got better. I beleive the seats are new and the RS/RSR? bumpers were added too. Love it.
Cool E92, but seriously, if you can afford this, you can probably afford real wheels.
