    I've rallied up Green Springs and Old Siskiyou Hwy, but there are too many people that live right on Old Siskiyou that don't appreciate fast cars going up and down that road. I love Old Siskiyou because there are a lot of slow sharp turns that can really show off the handling of your car. The only road that has ever got me was Dead Indian around mile marker 7....
    My Corvette had a "Wardrobe Malfunction." Since my windows were down, the car cover started flapping around in the car and as I tried to secure it, it turned into a parachute inside the car and blew into the front cockpit. Needless to say I wrecked my car doing 40mph on a straight strip of road. How sad. My buddy saw me do since he was following me and I was behind a bunch of cars doing the speed limit. My buddy said it looked like I just slowly veered off the road for no reason. Obviously he couldn't see through my tint to notice me fighting with a car cover that I should have put in its stuff sack...
    Well, at least it was a great excuse to move on to an STi!

    yeah i had a mishap on that road, on the first major hairpin as you go up. it was raining on the way down, i turned the bmw's ASC off and spun out after drifitng the corner and getting the tail out too much...i was an idiot but managed to save it...ended up worng lane facing up hill. scary so i know how you must hev felt in your corvette...except this was completely preventable.

    Would any of you happen to have/know of a place to dispose of used oil? I am in desperate need of an oil change, which I usually do at my parents' house (350 miles away). I really just need access to a receptacle w/ 4-1/2 quarts of room in it. I've got a case of 10w30 mobil 1 synthetic and filter ready to go- whoever lets me use their oil pan I'd let keep the remaining oil out of the case (>1.5 quarts), if they want it- otherwise, someother sort of compensation would be in order (in forms of green )

    Pour it back into the empty bottles and leave it with your curbside recycling.

    I assume there's a place in town that takes it too, then- I just take my recycling to the place myself...

    What kind of container (plastic milk jug, etc.) will hold up to hot oil? I don't need to buy anything special, do I?

    btw, any suggestions on which parking lot I should do this in?

    Or just go to an oil change place and they'll drain the old and pour the new bottles in for you. Otherwise I think you have to take the used oil out to the recycling station by the dump, I haven't seen a receptacle at the one by the skate park.

    any ideas for a meet? wade i am going to want to instlal the fluid one of these weekends, could i borrow some of your time?
    Is that the road that dumps onto the Mt. Ashland ski park rd. If it is I drove that road about 9 yrs ago when the spill shut I-5 down for three days. If I remember correctly the road goes past Bimart and keeps going.

    so no new mods to report yet.

    Have to find a place to live first, then modding can begin. Also will have a garage too. Horahh!


    Anyway, I got asked the other day at radio shack, if my car had a BOV, and if it doesn't why not, and to be sure to put one on, or my turbo will die.


    So...any meet ideas...?

    You don't need a BOV unless you'd like your want a "pfffft" sound when you rev your engine. Our cars have BPV's (Bypass valves) that recirculate instead of relieving the pressure to the atmosphere. Do a search on BPVs and you'll find a much better explanation, but in short the BPV is much more efficient.
    Have fun modding and finding a home!
