Race Prep – Waylens Camera System – Testing for HPD Use – July 5, 2016

20160705-1

New toys! Met up with the @waylenscamera team last Wicked Big Meet, and I’ve been helping them develop their product since then. The camera has finally launched, I’m excited to test it out especially with the integrated OB2 connectivity. #becauseracecar #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithslicks #waylens

Race Prep – Damaged Tein Coil-Overs Return – Rebuilt And Ready To Race – July 2, 2016

20160702-1

Well, it wasn’t really overnight parts from Japan, but good news the racing suspension has arrived. Bad news, in the hour in was sitting on my front step a massive rain storm came through. Moving a soaking wet 85lb box should be fun. Yay? #raceallthethings #becauseracecar

So funny story, I had originally gotten this suspension off of another racer my first year. I ended up damaging them during my first race. For the last 3 years I’ve been “making do” with a cobbled together setup. This year, thanks to some awesome sponsors, I was able to have this set repaired. This was the setup that put me on pole my first race, ever. We’ll see what these can really do now…

May 17, 2016 – T minus 48 hours til I’m supposed to be loading in at the race track. Waiting on parts. Business as usual.

The rallysprint might have been cancelled, but I’m not going to complain about working in the garage with the doors open, in a hoodie, in February.#wrenchallthethings #offseason #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #nasane #ladydriven #chickswithslicks

20151023-1

Thanks to Justin @jnaperformance for help with a little project I’ve been wanting to do for a while! Stopped by their shop to get a nicer presentable meet shirt made up. Love it! I’ll be at @rugessubaru tomorrow for their event, stop by and say hi!!! #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #nasane #becauseracecar #raceallthethings

Race Prep – RS Upgrades & Repairs – November 18-December 27, 2015

20151120-3

November 18, 2015 – Don’t worry, I’m not actually cleaning the car. Just power washing all the dirt from the undercarrage so working on it won’t be so miserable. Dirty car is happy car! #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #raceallthethings

November 20, 2015 – The actual reason I rush shipped the suspension parts… I have no chill and barreled into a bump pretty hard. After the run everyone noticed that the wheel was heavily cambered, but nothing was loose so I kept running. What I thought was just a blown shock is actually the reason I can’t have nice things. #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #becauseracegirl #raceallthethings #ladydriven #notakitchen

November 18, 2015 – What’s in the box? PRESENTS! For a job well done on Saturday the RallyX RS gets some goodies. Still have to wait for some of the other parts to arrive, but thanks to @jnaperformance for the usual one day turn around time. 🙂 #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #becauseracegirl #raceallthethings #ladydriven #chickswithgraveltires

November 18, 2015 – This is what’s in the box! King Springs got dropped off today, thanks Primitive Racing for the rush ship and the hook up on the rally lift springs! This will make the RallyX RS handle MUCH better! #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #becauseracegirl #raceallthethings #ladydriven #notakitchen

December 9, 2015 – Before and after! The rallycross RS continues its decent into the #offroad life with the suspension setup finally in. Driving it around on the roads it already feels MUCH better. Need to continue fixing leaks and maintenance the previous owner neglected. And the rust… Dat ride height tho! #slammed #hellaflush #rallyflush #becauseracecar #efilogics #jnaperformance #ruges #subaru #subiegirls #becauseracegirl #raceallthethings

December 27, 2015 – Well, there’s your problem… was going to just replace the plugs/wires for a quick fix on the rallycross RS, turns out the problem is a little more than that. At least the spark plugs are well lubricated… #grumpycat #thisiswhyicanthavenicethings #becauseracecar

Race Prep – EFI Logics starting rebuilding TK’s transmission – May 21-August 3, 2014

20140521-1

May 21, 2014 – #efilogics #racecars in the air! Transmission rebuild. Sychros have had it. I think the trans is one of the few “original” parts still left on the car, so its time for a refresh. Depending on how the gears look the 5/6 might get replaced with the shorter JDM gears, which would allow me to use them more on the track. Don’t know if we’ll have time to cryo anything as we’re trying to squeeze the repair in before Thompson at the end of June
