Low angle shot brings the pebbles and fallen leaves in the foreground into focus.
Straight side profile shot fools people into thinking that the wing is complete.
The trees and green vegetation in the background pops the #PeriodRed nicely.
The old skool raised-antenna creates the illusion of an RC car.
The double staggered 18/19 Wheels accentuates the natural sporty rake.
And the widebody completes the package.

There are many ratchets on the roads, but this bitch is mine 😈

Next time you arrive at your destination (or come back home), take a good look at your car, one more time.

The way life works, is that it might be your last time seeing your car in one whole piece.
Theft, flood, fire, earthquake, tornado, hit & run, anything might happen afterwards.

Never take things (and people) for granted, as every good thing, must come to an end.
You just don’t know when…..
Today’s #deepthought post is brought to you by #PeriodRed 😈

Some facts:
I only have one goal when building my #SW20: a reliable beater.

That’s all my car is, a daily beater.
It is my _one and only car_.
It has to be reliable because it takes my ass to work and back home with occasional grocery runs and car meets.
It piles up 21-24 thousand miles a year.
It runs 51 weeks in a year, not sitting on jack stands like most “beast builds”.
It is _not_ a track/drift car and never will.

And as such, it is build just to do normal driving within speed limit (lol really? Sshhhhh😂😈).
I am 37 and have ZERO ticket; I like my money in my pocket.

I like to have some fun as well; it has 3S stroker on A2W and TD06-20G which is enough for me; I mostly get stuck in traffic on my commute anyway.

So that’s my car and that’s my goal and that’s why I build my car my way.
Your goal maybe different, so you should build your car your way.

Yes, it is comfortably soft for my daily driving comfort.

I took out 185 lbs worth of stuff from my car today (please check my previous post).
The drive home was awesome!

The car rubs a lot less on bumps, it corners flatter with less sway, it accelerates easier, and on little road imperfections I can feel them more.

This is what my car supposed to be! (OK, maybe that’s just over-reaching. What an MR2 supposed to be is on 16" wheels with grippy tires, without widebody kit and this pretentious camber and stretch shiet) 😂🙈😈
My MPG should be better and the handling has improved, yay!

(But now I am driving around without my emergency tools.
I have confidence that my newly built engine will not fail me, and my fitment will not cause me problem.
Horns crossed, knock on titanium 😈)

I lowered the front one turn on the coilover😅

The stretch gap is there for a reason: so the fender would go in between the barrel and tire when the suspension compresses.

It’s been pretty much like this since 2011 when I was on my Meisters; that’s about 80+ thousand miles ago 🙈

I asked Lynn what “throwing shades” meant.

She replied “It’s like a hot girl saying this to a thot : If I was a Ferrari, you’re just an MR2”.

Oooooooooooohhhhhhhh 😂😂😂
That burn feels went deep straight down my black 💀💀💀 soul.

Later on I had to google what thot means …
Yeah that made it even burn x2 lol.

Just for the record: my car isn’t a hoe.
She’s a bitch.
My #PeriodRed 😈bitch.

So here I’m throwing some color shades 😂 (at Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, Los Angeles, Ca)

Back on the road!
My #PeriodRed bitch is back! 😈🚗🔥💨

After replacing the failed parts due to being 21 years old (master & slave cylinders, broken throw out bearing plus broken fork), @ETLGarage installed @ClutchMasters #FX500 unsprung, replacing Exedy Stage II.

Let’s see how many miles I can get out of it 😈 (at ETL Garage, Inc.)

So on my last post I said it took me 70 minutes to load #TheDevil onto the trailer.
Funny thing is, it took @ETLGarage 10 minutes to unload.

This proves me again that I’m good with a mouse and a keyboard but should just leave car stuff to the professional & don’t try to help, lol.

Thank you again #ETLGarage!
My only place that I trust to work on my #RedBitch 😈
By the way, @ETLGarage diagnosed the problem to be bad seal on Master/Slave cylinder, and not failed clutch.

Cheaper to fix, but that means I need to crank up the boost until the clutch fails due to too much power…
LOL 😂😂🙈😈
