You'll get used to it. Now I can't stand clutter. I get rid of everything that I haven't worn in at least 3 months

When you buy clothes, buy slowly
You need to wait and see where you stabilize at. You may continue to lose more ... or you can gain it back
So dont go and buy too much all at once

Good for you Raf! Being away help??

I should clarify: I keep seasonal clothes but even then it's minimal. If it's during the actual season (in this case spring) and I haven't worn something, I donate it.

Excellent point. i tend to have little restraint and buy lots at a time then donít shop for a while. Just another habit to break.

It was pretty fun! Car held up but I think I need tires. It got really hot by noon and most of us dipped after the 3rd session. I think my best time was 2:16 on the 2nd session. 3rd session, I hit 2:19 but got too low on fuel and started stalling out on turns LOL. Harry's Laptimer is legit!

Will probably sign up...need to get new tires though as my worn rears/DSC are going bananas.

Think I'm gonna run purple group - what about you?

Miss track days it's probably been a decade since i seriously tracked

what tires were you running on your spare set? or you drove on what your street? you have a baffle in the oil pan for fuel starvation or running a stock m54 minus the the belt snail?
