Bought a full set of black carpeted floor mats, brand new in plastic from another member for $40. Oh wait, sorry, that was for my 4Runner. Those guys have no idea what floor mats are worth.

Not today, but last weekend, I put 609 miles on my hard top, driving to SIV, participating in the Scenic Drive and driving back home. Nothing better.

Rebuilt my brake master cylinder, which had starting leaking from the rear (where the MC meets the booster) during track sessions. Then bench-bled the MC (again) and bled the entire system (all 4 calipers).

Wow. Very nice. If you do not mind, how much was the total and spec, did you roll the fenders?

Thank you!

I can't really remember the exact total but I would budget around $4k for a setup like this. I still need the ARP extended studs for the rear as well to complete the setup. I rolled the rears and had to trim the black plastic finisher at the rear of the arch on both sides. As for the fronts that required a bit of pulling to fit 245/40r18's but I went with the Toyo Proxes R1R's which have a wider footprint than most 245's from what I found. Overall, worth the expense to actually start seeing traction in 2nd.

70 in a 55 on the way home from VIR (Virginia International Raceway), but just got this "warning" instead of a ticket. Officer was cool, said he was also a car guy after I told him I was an instructor at VIR. He asked about the Supra ("what have you done to it") and talked about the cars he wants to own/drive. I told him he should've got me an hour ago...when I was doing 146 mph! (at the track of course). I think the combination of my concealed carry permit (properly presented...he said humurously "I won't reach for mine if you don't reach for yours"), good traffic-stop etiquette, and the high-performance driving instructor thing got me off with just the warning. This is the first time I've ever been pulled over for speeding and NOT received a ticket.

I'm jealous of interactions with police like yours! I haven't yet had the courtesy in the 4x I've been pulled over.
The first time I was pulled over in Philly in my Supra for making a "questionable" turn, a cop pulled his pistol on me yelling, "whos car is this!" Lol sucks being profiled.
