Upcoming Track Day

This coming weekend marks a big day for all US GT-R owners. A few of us have put together an all GT-R track day. We managed to rent the Buttonwillow track for the whole day. At first it turned out to be a testing day for some of us and from the looks of things it turned out to be bigger than that. We made an event out of it. There's going to be people coming from all over California. There will be a total 12 USDM GT-R's (6 modded GT-R's and 6 stock GT-R's). This will be a fun and historical event to take part of. If you're not doing anything Monday Dec. 29th please come out and join us. Videos and pics will be posted up here on my blog, Luxury4play, and NAGTROC.ORG.

Now it Starts

I officially kicked off my snowboarding season today. I went up a local spot called Mt. High with a few friends. They got dumped on big time earlier in the week and the whole valley was covered with 1-3 feet of snow. It is very rare to see this in Southern California. On our first day we all take it easy and warm up for the up and coming sessions through out the year. I plan on going up to Big Bear on Christmas day and a trip to Mammoth on the 27-28.

Sorry I don't have any interesting pics from today's trip, but here you go.

Tanabe GF210 Springs

My car just got fitted with new springs and here is all the info for you guys and gals.

The GF210 coil spring is geared towards maximum performance, without compromising daily driveability. A subtle drop provides an aggressive stance, while the higher spring rates (+20% - 30% over stock) provide excellent handling and vehicle stability characteristics. These springs provide a very noticeable gain in performance when installed.

The GF210 is well mated with a performance shock upgrade to extract the full potential of the coil spring, but will also work with factory equipment.

Each coil spring application is tested for fitment and optimal weight distribution for sportier handling

17mm lower in the front

16mm lower in the rear

Spring rate

10 kg/mm front

7 kg/mm rear

So far so good. I set my setting in comfort mode on the way back home and it was fine. I can feel the difference in the ride and it's more rigid. When track day comes I should know more on how they feel. I would love to try it out this weekend, but the snow is calling me this weekend.
