New direction

I haven't been around here in quite a while, and for those of you who remember sorry. Work and school have been running my life, as well as the girlfriend. I just thought I would update you on my car situation...

I sold the 04 WRX a few weeks back to a dealership. The car was literally falling apart and wasn't reliable. I hung up the autocross gear, well actually sold it all, and had the car back to stock. I miss it, but it was time to move on.

So I flew to Indiana a week ago and picked up a 2006 Evo IX with just under 15k on the odometer. Bone stock except for a catback exhaust. I absolutely love it. In my opinion, much more exciting than the STi. I was actually going to get an STi, but then I drove the Evo for the first time and loved it.

I have a turboback on order, boost controller, intake, springs, and a few gauges. A upgraded FMIC is in the future.

I will NOT be racing this one and destroying it like I did the Subaru. Sorry I haven't had time to be around recently. I know I'm still a moderator, but Chris you can take that off if you want. I just wanted to say hi and wish everyone the best.

Ah, my soul hurts. And sorry to be the one to let you know. Chris is no longer in charge of the site. Glad all is going well though.
