FYI at the 76 Gas station on W Pico Blvd and S Barrington Ave has race gas. I would mix it with 91.

I'm excited for next month! Was the route for today's drive shared via Google maps on Facebook? I only looked on my phone so I might have missed it. I still have a few previous routes saved on my home screen although I don't need Google maps to drive them anymore.

Finished up DCC retrofit along with brake upgrades all around today. My first time doing brakes and I think I'm going to have some professionals do a bleed on it. The pedal is progressive but feels a little soft overall There are some adaptations in the ABS module that I might try though. Going to let everything settle for a week and then take it to get an alignment and bleed.

Yeah. The route is posted on the FB page. It was quick and twisty.

Last Sunday meet, Santa Clarita. I don't think license plates will be too legible in the pics I chose. Lots of really nice cars, as usual. I don't know if these folks are members here but my pictures are certainly not flattering so if you want me to take them down for any reason by all means, please shoot me a PM. I'll pull them down as soon as I see it.

Yea it was! First time I've really given the car a shakedown since I got it put back together, new suspension and brake setup. Really enjoyed it. Frackin GTI's and R's have so much "go" even when you're already doing 60+... no such joy in my TDI but I can hang in the slow twisty stuff, haha.

Today was the first time I felt XDS doing it's thing. I understand it works even at low speed but I've never felt anything (or turned it off to see what it feels like to not have it). I intentionally pushed on a mild sweeper with safe run out in front of me. I didn't feel I was at the limit yet but XDS (and maybe ESC) kicked in and gave me a serious pucker moment.

It did what you would want on the street, brought the car back from the (approaching, in my opinion) limit. You will never catch me on anyone's track so I will not be disabling it but I see why track/auto-x guys would turn it off. The car went from (predictable) understeer at speed to an abrupt and unexpected correction.

Damn, I'm forever going to be missing out on these runs because I always work on Sunday's. Actually going to be hitting up ACH again, but with a bunch of subie's since I'm the only guy in the group that's not a JDM head.. there's one guy with a Charger scatpack, but he's all show, no go.

I keep forgetting about this thread. No worries though, my buddies and I have cruises on different days of the week so maybe you can make it to one when I start posting them here.

I’m for it. I’m a social distancer/masker tho because I’ve lost several family members to COVID already. Just buried my Grandma today after having to wait a little more than a month..

You aren't the only one... people do what they want but I didn't talk to anybody not wearing a mask (not that I talked to many people at all, haha). And then I kept my distance. We are strangers after all.
