HTPC/modest gaming machine case

I built a home-theatre-PC / modestly-powered gaming PC earlier this year (to run iRacing, of course), and accidentally ordered two cases. The amazon seller is being a pain about the return so I figured I'd offer it up here. It takes a mini-ATX board, but comes with a riser to host a full-sized (2-sl...

Re: 2020 TT Season

I think Jason's last point is really important. We, all clubs really, rely on the goodwill of the local towns.

Re: Best place to get mounting/balancing - Concord NH area

Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

I had a bad experience with EBC Yellows. By the afternoon of the fourth day on track the BRZ they were down to the backing plates. From what I'd read the Yellows were supposed to be more suited for autocross/track than the Reds. Sure the car is heavier than an MX-5, but I won't go back to EBC.

Got my GTI back from Chris Howard with a custom welded in roll bar. Very satisfied with the result.
Got any pictures?

You should think about adding a collapsible collar section to your steering "shaft"...just saying..;)
You mean the steering spear?

Who am I kidding? I could never do something like this. I'm pretty impressed, and a little jealous. Thanks for sharing.
