Don't have Stalkerbook, but I have been thinking about a track day at the Bend. I know a couple of guys that have done it regularly, and say its a blast.

Monday from 5:00pm to 9:00pm is kind of an awkward time for anyone that has to travel, yourself included, not sure why he chose that over a Saturday, maybe price wise.

I probably won't go based on the time and day alone, but have a blast !!

There was a 18 Shadow Black in at the same time as mine getting ceramic coating. Here are a few shots. The paint is amazing and like a mirror. have to wait 3 days before washing it again. Really has to be seen in person but here are the pics anyway.

Dropped her off at DaSilva Racing today to have the FP tranny cooler installed and decided to go ahead and get the resonator delete as well.

I'm interested in the resonator delete as well, is there a specific piece you're putting in? I've seen that Corsa has an x-pipe....

They are just replacing the pipes where the resonators are. Our cars have X Pipes already, same as the R

Yah, I knew about the factory x-pipe, guess I worded my question wrong....I was wondering if you were using a manufactured piece, like the Corsa x-pipe, or just cutting them out and going straight pipe, leaving the factory x in place.

Either way, I'm curious to hear your impressions on the difference in sound, I read a lot on the US forum, most agree its a good mod to make, I'm still on the fence.

Plus I'm going to have to drop $1500 for two rear tires, which dampens my mod budget......damn this car is more expensive to own than any other vehicle I've had. More fun though, so its worth it.

So we cut the resonators off and installed straight pipes, left the factory X pipe as is. It definitely sounds better, like The R. Its a bit louder at idle and quite a bit louder and raspier when at WOT and accelerating. Pops a lot more as well. Glad I did it. I wish I took a pic when it was on the hoist. Sorry I will see about posting a video for your pleasure FYI in quiet or normal mode not much has changed albeit it is a bit louder.

Was able to add the Trans Oil Temp display in gauge mode using a OBDlink MX diagnostic tool and FORscan software. Its pretty cool that you can make changes things like the Welcome screen on the 8" Sync 3 screen, put your car in dark mode so lights don't come on when opening the door, disabling the double horn honk when opening the door while running, turning off fake exhaust sounds being pumped through the speakers and many other settings.

Now that I have a trans cooler its good to see what its doing.

Sounds like a great mod, that double horn honk delete is worth it alone, that drives me sideways.
