Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Oppo Roll Call Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Oppo Roll Call

It’s only a little over a month out, and other than Daender, is any other Oppo going? It’s January 26&27 if you didn’t know. If you haven’t made reservations for a place to stay, I recommend the Drifwood Beach Resort in Ormand Beach. It’s small, but very clean, and at least our room(Daender and I) was updated. Super…

Is there a fix in sight? I don’t like having to go back and find an article, hoping it’s the correct one, just to reply to a comment.

I drove a manual for the first time since getting the GTI I drove a manual for the first time since getting the GTI

I have absolutely no regrets about getting the DSG. Being a daily driver, the DSG is just perfect. My manual elitism is now dead. Manual vs. Auto is now the same as Carb vs. EFI, there is a time and place, but modern versions are just better for the average commute.

Not too loud, barely noticeable while cruising. Pretty aggressive under load, but the real aggression comes between shifts.

Always assume the previous owner is trying to kill you. Again, the 4Runner’s previous owner’s mishandling of wiring work/cheap hacking reared it’s ugly face. In combination with him cutting the battery box and the positive lead, the moveable post that the battery crossover is attached to popped out on Sunday. While…

How about an ‘81 Bronco with 27k miles? Complete with a 4 speed and a 300.

Cars and Coffee of the Upstate, 11/24/18 Cars and Coffee of the Upstate, 11/24/18

Limited Time Only, my friend Lane, and I braved the cold today, and it didn’t really pay off. Maybe 50 cars were in attendance, compared to the 1200 or so the last time I went. Oh well, it was nice seeing LTO.

I can’t leave well enough alone, I ordered some tips, so the muffler is coming off next week.

Today in Jordan is Glad He Got the DSG: Today in Jordan is Glad He Got the DSG:

My commute is usually 13 miles, but one of the main highways was shut down for 5 hours today. There were no police warnings until you got to the crash(Thanks, Lexington PD), causing quite the jam.

I haven’t been able to tell what was Soundaktor and what was actual noise before, so I recorded it. It actually sounds decent stock.

This on the other hand is kinda neat.

Now that I am closing in on 4,000 miles, I have finally stopped kicking the floor to shift. And I still am fascinated by the DSG. It’s so excessive for such a quick transmission to be in such a normal car, yet here we are. That said, I haven’t forgotten about the Fiesta... I’ve found it enjoyable watching the price…
