So... Is anyone else going to this event? I've fallen in love with the ALSM over the past couple years and have been going regularly to Laguna Seca for the past couple years. This will be my 3rd time going. I thought it would be great for any other RA's that might be going to try and coordinate parking in the same spot. Post if you are down for this!

never seen it. lol

I know where Mazda Raceway is though by Monterey.
I go by there sometimes but never to an event.
I've stayed at Resort on the beach in Monterey once a year for the weekend.

When it is?

I got to save money for something like that.
Bills, Bills & more bills.

Did you ran over something?The weld was coming loose, then it fell completely off the other day when driving on the freeway. I think it was a weak weld, then water got on it and it rusted the weld and then it just weakened and fell off while driving on wonderful socal freeways. Then while I was either idling during this trip, or... while traveling on the 5 fwy up there, the bumper melted. :D

Wow, that sucks about your bumper. I never think about things like that happening, because I am still not used to so much plastic on a car. I hope it's not too much to fix.

Its hardly noticeable. The pic is looking up at it so it looks worse than it is. I'll probably just sand down the rough part and leave it as is.

...up until this I thought exhaust tips were simply for looks. I guess there is more to them after all...

I might end up looking for a heat shield something like this: http://www.201motorsports.com/images/P/02wrx-cfshield.jpg
