    Where and How is one supposed to get into professional racing?

    Personally, I have no clue as to how to get into racing at all but I have heard that you need a special licence in order to even THINK about racing professionally. While I was in Japan, I learned from some guys at an Autoshop that I used to hang out at, that there was a place in Fuji that...

    American mechanic

    I agree...that's pretty bad if you don't know that water doesn't go in the engine. Had it been me with the Cobra and THAT level of ignorance, I probably would have bought more oil and changed the oil again and THEN would have talked to a professional if I still had issues. Now that I...

    Annoying friends

    One of my friends in particular will jump up and down in the seat and, honestly...he is not lightest person I have met. I mean, I will WATCH the seat squeak in agony and then look at him like: WTH DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING!?!? Point being: If he breaks my seat, I am pulling a shiny new...

    In the US, I have found that they do their best to catch you between two close speedlimit transitions. For Example: There is a road in Albuquerque, NM called 'Paseo Del Norte' and there is an overpass with on/off ramps and stoplights on either side. The key to the speed-camera's success is that...

    I think what took so long was the fact that I was in a rental car in a different state than the one I lived in so I am sure the time it took for them to process the picture and send it to the rental company THEN having the rental company inform me postal service...I could see how it took a bit...

    REDRaven: 2009 Lancer GTS

    Honestly, I have been doing a lot of online shopping for stuff for my car but I think because it is fairly new, there haven't been too many parts made for it yet and a lot of the parts I have found for it are more for show than performance...but I suppose I haven't been EVERYWHERE so the...

    REDRaven: 2009 Lancer GTS

    I tinted the windows... I have plans but like all things, it is going to take time and money. I have recently been considering either a body kit, a carbon fiber hood, or a turbo ( the turbo is conditional because I don't know how much it will cost me for other things related to the turbo...

    REDRaven: 2009 Lancer GTS

    Hello Everyone, My name is Sean and I am here in the US. I drive a 2009 Lancer GTS and I am just starting to really learn about cars (more importantly MY car!), and I figured: Why not talk to other people who already have recomendations/opinions to share? So here I am just trying to...

    Beefy GTS or Stock EVO???

    Hello everyone :D, I have a decision that I want to make but I don't think I can make it without some help: I have been fighting with myself over whether installing a turbo in my FWD Lancer GTS ( Plus having to install other things like a better exhaust system, ram-air/cold-air...

    Hi to everyone

    Everyone, I can understand and identify with becoming attached to your car and wanting to tool around with it and i can also understand the matter of affordability. I never meant to offend, I was just curious. I am fairly new and i don't really know too much about cars myself and yet I...
