Motorsports

These interests have taken a back seat for now. About the most I feel like doing car-related is to change the oil, and try to keep it clean.

Though every now and then I think about a new fun project car, like a mid 80s BMW 535is with a big motor.... Update for 2013: ran across a project car for a good price: see the building of a 1984 BMW 633 CSi.

My cars, past and present:

And bunch of random pictures from our racing over the years:

Taken before too many (if any) suspension modifications at an autocross. Lots of lean, and the inside rear tire had a tendancy to frequently lift off the ground. (2002)

The sentra's new rear antisway bar. It was done before any new springs were installed, and as such, made the car a oversteer a little too easily. (2002)
