Hey Jenn, I live in Toronto, Canada, but have been looking for a nice Z for a while. My Girlfriends best friends live in Agora Hills, California, and we're planning a visit in April.
I've now began to look for California Z's as they are usually in much better condition. Do you have many pics you could forward. If the car seems right, our friend Tony could come take a
look and make payment.
Please email any pics and additional info.
Please and Thanks,
I think it will be cool if we can get a group event going.....I have done it at Laguna Seca and that was an awesome expirence....but it can be done at Fontana Speedway as well.
What i'm looking forward sometime early next year (winter time) is to track my car.
Have been able to track your car ? And if you have how did it perform? Was it what you expected?
I'm glad i waited to, but it wasn't easy at all. When I first knew of the new model in April i visited my local dealer and started to ask questions about the car and expected arrival date. They first told me they expected in late June early July of course i was excited and said to myself only two long months.......yeah right!! And of course it did not come in until the end of August 5 months later.
I will wait until the new verison of the AP is released. Do you find yourself using the different feature for example: anti-theft or the rev limiter?
Or is it something like its cool to have but you really don't use......
Do you of any meets in our area?
I'll be looking out for your WRX........see if i can keep up!
I am interested in the turbo back for the 2006 sti (I have a 2005, I wonder if this will fit)
let me know, thanks.
The two biggest changes I noticed were that my spine straightened a little bit. As I'm 6'4", it's been tough to keep good posture, but as my form changed in running, my back had to pick up some of the slack. My speed increased quite a bit - I dropped 37 minutes off of my marathon time. Running "barefoot" isn't a cure all answer to running, but it certainly (in my eyes) fixes alot of the common ailments that plague recreational runners and sideline them from staying fit and feeling healthy.
your eyes become remarkably good at spotting sharp objects and not stepping on them. Your feet become tougher too. The biggest adjustment is switching from landing on your heel to landing on your forefoot, which involves quite a bit of strength in your calf muscles. I spent about 2 weeks running 3 miles a day, 4 days a week to adjust, then jumped into marathon training after. My calves were definitely very sore at some points and I should have given myself more adjustment time, but I'd suggest just listening to your body and deciding when it feels right. Just be careful not to overdo it right away if you try it.
