    That location looks lovely, also it's not as bad as you think. It's really alive in CPT, also you guys have it better than you think with road condition, twisties and low traffic. Wait until you move to a place that's not that much bigger but has 10-20x the amount of people and probably 20-30x...

    I'm at ~190kw and I feel like that's more than enough. Really need to take my car to the tracks around here though because I think I get the chance to go above 4000rpm only like once a month. Feels like a waste. Found the source of my very small coolant leak, it was a busted overflow res cap...

    The market in SA kinda sucks, the best market for them outside of Japan is honestly North America. It got the best combinations of things, many more specialty shops as well as the most amount of S2000s. So not only is there a lot more to choose from, they're usually also in better condition...

    Finally got a chance to take my car out from hibernation, really glad I'm changing the clutch entirely because the fluid is looking nasty. There's still tons I need to do to it. I have a Recaro PP, PCI rails, Titan7 TR-10s, AD08Rs, new clutch with 8lb flywheel, ACT PP waiting to go in. Along...

    This is why I'm glad I have a tiny engine in a light-ish car, still average around 8.5-9l/100km though but that's mainly because of the crappy road design and almost zero highway driving I do. Having to get 91aki / 97-98RON petrol isn't cheap either. edit - when I mean almost zero, I mean it...

    Considering how horrible the roads are here and how low/slow every speed limit is I've found no real desire for more power at all. Even lightly modded power is more than enough for me.

    The GR Yaris would be an amazing weekend b-road car that I keep completely stock and mint for resale value. I wouldn't ever buy it for a DD - there's so much better out there for the price. I'd look at them in a similar vein to my S2000.

    Looks like a K24A1/4, 160hp? Or maybe K20A4, also 160hp. edit - also yikes, no AC.

    Sadly they are already putting salt brine on the roads here... and that means: At least the Science of Speed car cover is really nice.

    I do the same with my car, making sure everything is done properly and not in a rush gives me a good peace of mind. Only time I take it to a shop is to get stuff I can't get done myself and even then I usually go to race shops / specialists.
