I really enjoy the GTI, I just wish that I could find a good seating position (but that could be because of my currently fucked up back )

As for making it faster? Pass. For my DD, it's just not worth it, IMO.

After our wedding, I want to get into auto-x. I'm not sure I'd use the GTI and just get a different set of wheels and tires or maybe try to buy and lightly build something cheap (old Focus, Honda, or Mazda something) Just see if it's something I'd want to continue

The want to simply enjoy what I drive versus being the fastest is why I bought what I have.

So like was the freezer plugged back in after transport? Someone had to have opened it and checked it out before/after the move.

Fucking score...wife didn't want to leave little dude for 2.5 days to go to NYC, so we're going to drive to milwaukee this saturday to see the show instead.

I got the insurance with the tickets, but didn't realize how useless it is. Have a feeling they're going to deny my claim and i'll end up trying to sell these tickets on NYC craigslist. W/E...still saving a lot of $$ by not going there even if I lose a couple hundred bucks on the tickets

Working on and modding cars is half the fun. Don’t care that there are factory 10 second cars out there. Then again I’d never build a dedicated go in a straight line car anyways.

Get a newer Charger or Challenger with a 392 Hemi. Those cars move out.

Theyíre rated at 485 hp. But theyíre really around 510 hp.

But. If you donít like 13-15 MPGs itís not for you. Lol.

The problem is you only drag race. Drag racing has become so popular that there are so many of the same cars with shop installed parts on it. And you wait for hours to make a single pass. Part of why I don't have an interest in drag racing like I did in the past is the hours of waiting to make one pass. The road racing allows me a LOT more time on track with limited downtime. Even though it cost more if you figure it out by time on track versus cost, road racing is way ahead. Plus it is a lot more enjoyable. To me at least. But I bet most would agree with that.

The car builds at the road courses are not too exciting that often. But I am there to enjoy myself on the track more than looking at other cars. And I still socialize with other people there. So checks that social box as well.

You have a car that is well suited for the road course and AutoX. Get out to the AutoX with some of us TCG peeps and try it. It is a cheap way to throw the car around and enjoy it. Then maybe you can justify an HPDE once or twice a year. I have a feeling you will be hooked and be less dependant on drag racing for your racing fix. I still enjoy drag strips but it is nice to have other options. I guess what I am saying is people think drag racing isn't what it was. I get that. But there are plenty of other ways to enjoy our cars.

I like the fact that my last few cars have been less of a one trick pony drag car. It is nice to have more options to enjoy the cars. Including some spirited driving on open roads. When you can go out and enjoy your car more, you are going to be happier.

I enjoy working on my cars to a degree. I don't like constantly working on them. I want to do upgrades and otherwise be out enjoying my car.

I will say I miss the social end of people meeting in a garage to hang out and work on someone's project. People seem too busy to have time for that kind of socializing anymore. Families take a lot of time. I get that. But still miss it. haha

I’ve always just worked on my own stuff. Not looking for help. Maintenance sucks, modding is where the fun is (I assume most don’t like maintenance work )

Itís the new cookie cutter wave of the future. The old saying was if going single digit in the 1/4 was easy, everybody would be doing it. You really needed to be an above average mechanic to get a car deep in the single digits. Now, itís easier for the non-mechanical people that want to go fast. Nothing wrong with a bought fast car compared to a built fast car IMHO. More squids can go fast...with the $$$, of course.

Me, personally, I love cars that scare you.
