chip in money for a codrive. Mike Brausen is selling seats in his psycho FP evo for $600. Adam might have a seat open to rent. Search around.

If you want to run nationals for fun I might even let you run my 2008 (for free if I brought it) if you bring your own wheels and tires. Suspension is lacking as it's my daily cruiser now however...and I'm not really wanting to take my coilovers off the 2012 MS3 to put on the 3 again.

But put some feelers out there...if you're serious about nationals then you can make it happen

Still has the 500rpm higher redline too...but no Vibrant header so it's down on power...but quiet

My first event on the rims and tires was supposed to be today (Sunday) tires were mounted Thursday and I didn't even get to run on them! I hate it for this build as I was looking forward to running against everyone at nationals next year but if I can find a BRZ for a decent price then I might look at those. Still a lot of decisions to make

Ken!!! It's imperative you stay on top of the oil man! This is how most of them go. I'd offer you a seat at Nats, but already have a co-driver.

Aww man. I'm sorry to hear Ken. I'd offer a seat too but I've already got one. I like David's idea to jump in Brausens FP evo though!

You could also find a 2.5 and go to FSP, just sayin'

I figured I would be fine with not even half a qt low. It had been running fine until I did the oil change. I'm not really sure what caused the oil pump to fail other than it being just a freak thing.

In other news I've decided to part the STF goodies out so it anyone here would like anything feel free to shoot me an offer. Will be using this car as a trade in so sadly the vibrant and corksport exhaust will stay on. All suspension bits are for sale though. I will give any STF guy here a smoking deal on the coil overs if you wanted to try something new.
