Oldie but goodie


This woman is so amazing in every way. I would like to meet her one day. I started listening to her when I was a little child because my mother played her music and I was attracted to her voice ever since.

I've been quoted

"It's little more compact than I imagined it would be," says Chris Payne, a visual effects artist and a new GT-R owner. "The rear aero diffuser could be a lot better, but the interior sure has improved. It could be a hell of a track car. Maybe that's the thing to do; buy a base model and just track it."

I'm really looking forward for these to drop

From GT motoring:
Prototype Tein Super Racing Dampers due for release in January or February! We will be testing these for use here as soon as we get the first set in the states from Tein USA

These will be both rebound and compression adjustable with dual EDFC control capabilities. Ride height and spring preload are seperately adjustable as well.


Developed from actual competition, TEIN was able to create a fully adjustable damper that can be easily tuned for any track and weather conditions. Super Racing Dampers utilize a full-length adjustment system to allow shock length and spring pre-load to be adjusted independently. Separate 16 - way adjustments for compression and rebound damping enable the user to fine tune for any situation. TEIN has incorporated both camber and caster adjustment into the front pillow ball upper mounts for strut type vehicles. External reservoirs on SA type dampers allow for added oil capacity. Spring rates and shock valving were derived from many years of motorsports support, to provide the ultimate damper for competition. Designed and tested for circuit use by advanced and professional drivers who are seeking complete damper tuning capability.

Additional Features
• Steel Construction
• Mono Tube internal construction
• Inverted design for strut type front and rear
• Ride Height adjustable via threaded body and spring seats
• 16 × 16 way adjustable dampers, compression and rebound separately adjustable
• Pillow ball upper mounts for increased steering feel
• Upper and lower camber adjustment on front for strut type vehicles
• Caster adjustment on front for strut type vehicles
• Dual EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) compatible
• Powder coated brackets with Teflon coated shock body for heavy duty rust prevention

Contents of Damper Kit:
Adjustable Shock Absorber × 4 Bump Rubber × 4
Main Spring × 4 Hook Spanner × 2
Some applications include helper springs Dust Cover × 4
Pillow ball Upper Mount × 4 Instruction Manual × 1
Lower Spring Seat × 4 Sticker Sheet × 1

word of the day "SQUARE"

So I'm at Lubtsch(misspelled) and some kid who looks to be around the age of 14 asked if I had a square. I went with it and said, "Naw yo, I'm all out." Then I asked myself, "What the FUCK is a square?" I turned to my boy Josh and he told me that it's a cigarette. He said, "Go figure, people call a cylinder object a square, real smart these kids are."

I must be out of the loop now that I'm getting older.

Tis the snowboard season

Last week Monday Mammoth Mt. opened early than excepted. I'm sure most of it is man made but it's still snow to me. I'm looking forward to riding again this season. I've been think all about since my last day riding at June Mt. back in April. There are going to be some BIG trips this coming season. I'm talking about hitting up Tahoe several times and Mammoth every other weekend(try to at least hahahaha). Local spots like Big Bear and Mt. High just don't do it for me. These places are filled with a bunch of assholes that have no respect. Once I start my season, I'll be posting about it. I'll see you guys at the top!

a few pics from Monday 11.10.08

Here are a few pics from this past week.


Last week I went to Las Vegas for SEMA. I haven't been to Vegas in 5 years and let me tell you, it's changed. I was late getting on the road because I had to vote and that just took FOREVER! My plan was to arrive in Vegas by 1pm and so I can have sometime to check a few things out and then meet up with afew people around 3pm. That didn't work to well, I was 30 mins late. I made it from LA to Vegas in 3.5hours though :D. I met up with a few members of NAGTROC(north American GTR Owners Club). Later I saw my friend Sean Lee over at 3T motorsport and hungout with them for a bit.
Later that night we all went to Tao and had a blast. I met Shawn(?) and Mikey from Seibon at the table in Tao. Later on the BBI Autosport guys Betim, Joey, and Jared show up and the night went downhill from there LOL. Let's just say I was with the BBI guys for the rest of the night and I didn't know how to get back to the hotel.
The next day I woke up feeling GREAT(yeah right). I headed back to SEMA and I ran into Sean Morris. We started walking around and we ran into Sean Lee. I was amazed how small the auto industry is and how people know each other. It's like my job. We then walked over to see the yellow Axis GTR and we saw James Chen sitting there. We were talking to James for awhile and then Daryl and KC roll up. It was cool to be around good people that know a thing or two in this industry. Later we headed back to 3T Motorsport's booth and we started talking about how to improve the GTR. During our conversation Joey and Betim from BBI show up and it turned out to be a really good conversation.
The next day I met up with Chuck, Davin, John, Shin, and Mr. Kamata of Zele japan (GTR tuners) at the Eneos booth where the Zele car was. The car is simply amazing. The orange looks so much better in person.(Chuck, showgirl, Davin, John, myself, and Mr. Kamata(Zele Japan) Shin took the picture.)
