An open letter to New Englanders An open letter to New Englanders

First, I hate you all.

Rusty Slammington

For those of you that followed the story a long time ago, Rusty Slammington exists again. It was a polarizing topic for a lot of folk. I had all but forgotten about the car until i was perusing instagram and saw what looked to be that icon shark mouth straight from old fighter planes. I then realized that Mike B. had…

Horrible time to sell a GTI

So a week before the VW stuff came out I started to think about selling my GTI. I had some equity in it and I really wanted to get back into a WRX. So I started to look and think about it and do numbers. I looked on nada.com and looked at trade in value and all that stuff. Everything was looking good when all of a…

Got to drive a Gallardo a few weeks ago around the Seacoast Got to drive a Gallardo a few weeks ago around the Seacoast

So I finally got around to attending to the pictures I took at my dad’s wedding a few weeks back. He rented a Lamborgini Gallardo to drive up in. My dad had told me a while back that he had planned to do this and that I’d be able to drive it. I was excited but kind of forgot about it and didn’t actually think I’d…

Might be buying a new used car today

So the time has come. I'm getting rid of my 04 WRX wagon. I have nothing but love for that hunk of junk, but I can't afford another repair on it. The previous owners must have beat the crap out of it. I know a well maintained wrx will drive until the body becomes rust. I thought I was buying one of those, but turns…

Off Topic Fly Fishing Off Topic Fly Fishing

So I pulled off the road yesterday and found a little stream. You can't see it from the road and I wasn't sure if there was water there. I just always see vehicles there so I figured there was either fishing or hunting there. Turns out it was fishing. I have had almost no luck fishing streams this year. It's my first…

Oil question

Hey guys,

Lifehackers top 10 ways to become a better driver

I was very surprised to see I have been doing something completely wrong (and no it wasn't turning the wrong way into a slide). Granted this does not mean I am saying I know everything about being a great driver. There are plenty of things I'm sure I could do better, but I am happy with my driving and I think I am a…

Off topic- I got a thing Off topic- I got a thing

So I got my new thing all set up finally. I can't wait to try it out. It's a 7'6" 4 weight. Nothing fancy but I found a good package deal on cabela's and bought it. This is my first full year fly fishing and I wanted to try a different size and weight. I have a 9' 6 weight too (I've gotten everything until this point…

I just got ran off the road- have some bluegrass modest mouse I just got ran off the road- have some bluegrass modest mouse

So there is three lanes before a stop light. 1 left turn, 1 stay straight, 1 turn right. The lady in front of me was in the straight lane, and I needed to turn right. So I hope in the right lane and as I'm about to pass her she decides to get in the right lane. Almost hits my driver side door. I hit the brakes and…

IT question for those well versed in XP IT question for those well versed in XP

First off no this is not my computer and yes I've talked to my buddy about upgrading. Ok got that out of the way. Backstory time.

Landyachtz you say? Landyachtz you say?

Never actually owned one but the evo was always one I wanted. By the time I started to get interested in DH'ing I had finished college. Which meant all my longboard friends and I went separate ways, I was no longer near good hills, and I couldn't afford to get hurt anymore.

My car is driving fantastic right now...have a Maserati My car is driving fantastic right now...have a Maserati

I am so stoked. It's breathing like a car should now. I finally opened it up a little bit on the highway. I got onto the on ramp in second gear and next thing I knew my RPMs were up at 6 grand. For the first time since owning the car there was no drama shifting it up to 3rd. It didn't buck between gears. I never even…

Theories I have that need explanations about my new used exhaust- Have a random classic for your troubles if you read this Theories I have that need explanations about my new used exhaust- Have a random classic for your troubles if you read this

So Oppo, just yesterday I had my exhaust replaced from the downpipe back on my 04 WRX. I found a CL ad for an 06 STI turbo back exhaust for 250. My situation was I had a crack in my catalytic converter (after the midpipe) and on top of that a lot of New England rust keeping everything "nice" and "snug". So anyways,…

Need quick exhaust advice from other Subaru drivers and/or smart people

I just posted that I am buying an 06 STI turbo back exhaust for my 04 wrx. Earlier when I was reading up on it the internet said it would be fine to do. Now after some more reading I'm finding that the STI has a catless DP. Will I throw a code with this swap and will it cause a problem. I saw something about boost…

Buying a used turbo back exhaust tomorrow from an 06 STI

So I have finally had enough of my catalytic converter issues. A few months after buying an 04 WRX wagon I found that my check engine light came on. I had brought my car to an exhaust place to put on a stock STI muffler that the seller gave me with the car. I liked the single tip look over the dual tip that the…

I'm getting my baby back, but I learned a $1000 lesson so you don't have to

So an update on the WRX for those following along. Subaru called me earlier today and told me that a timing belt pulley exploded and sent shrapnel inside the timing case. It took chunks out of my 10k mile old timing belt with it. Also the timing belt front cover was cracked, which spit some ball bearings out. So time…
