My New Wheels In Action

Took them out to their first autocross today... for those of you unaware, I just painted them... but I'm very excited about them, haha!

I got a million compliments too. From what I heard, they look very awesome during a run. Also, what you can't see is that I'm wearing a pink shirt. And normally I have a pink helmet, but there were some issues today, so I had to borrow someone elses.





Got many more pictures, but they haven't been uploaded yet. Just wanted to share

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

They would not let you wear a pink helmet?

Nah... I bought the helmet brand new, but when it arrived to me it was missing the snell sticker inside, which it needs to have in order to meet safety requirements. I've contacted the company, and they sent me a new one, which was supposed to get here on Friday, but it didn't. So, I was just using a friends.

Ooooh, no... nothing permanent or regular for daily driving. I love pink, but I love Sally too much to make any of it permanent
