    Here's a few updates. I've been slowly moving forward on these headlights working on them on my lunch breaks. Miraculously I came across center caps for my wheels. The car is dirty as hell though. I also ordered a Braille Battery since I needed a car battery and the costs are so similar that it seemed like the right way to go. It works out for my future plans with the car but I just didn't want to get one so soon.

      Hmmm a LED high beam. That will be tricky to integrate into the high beam switch for our cars.

        The LED's will be on their own switch. The projectors have a shutter for high beams so that will get hooked up to the stock high beam harness.

          The new battery came in! I'm very happy with it's performance. I'm planning on buying the accompanying battery box bracket so I can mount it to the frame rail and open up the area where the stock battery was. I also had an autocross event I went to last weekend. I'm still waiting to get the videos off of a friends gopro. The event was held on an unused runway at a local municipal airport so I at least came away with a few cool pictures. It's so much fun putting this car through it's paces. Two days ago I had the chance to install my new headlights and I'm really happy with how they turned out. Now the downside; with the headlights being a bit of a departure from the stock look, I feel I really need to go back to a stock bumper. That being said I'm going to try and pick one up from a local junkyard on Saturday and eventually re-order another GReddy lip so I can get this thing back to the way it was. I'm even considering a G Square replica grille.

            Looks like Deev's still got his rep for sale.

              Looks great! Can you commend on the function of the headlights? Do the highbeams have the LEDs and the low beams (flap up) on?

                I gotta get that supercharger off of Deev too.

                I only have the projector shutter wired to the high beam switch. I have the LED's on their own switch. I can run them as DRL's if I want to.

                    God I need to get mine running, that looks like fun.

                      No doubt! I need to get mine to some auto-x this summer.

                        I picked up a set of lightweight wheels for autocrossing. Buddy Club P1's.

                        Also swapped in a "new" transmission today as well. One hell of a difference. First through third is very close and responsive while fifth is long enough to drive on the highway more comfortably than my previous transmission. The steering feels different but I can't place exactly what is different. The new mount also keeps the car from wheel hopping as much as it was with the ESP mount.

                        Can't wait for the autocross next month.

                          shit, i would love to try autocross! I bet it seems so easy but then is difficult. Do you guys track the time and see who does better?

                            I would compare it to go karting. They do parade laps before the event starts so you can learn the course. After that it's just finding the limits of what the car can do and trying to go fast. You'll kind of figure out what is fast. They have a timing system out there and they print out the results. I was one tenth of a second slower than a friend from work in his Mazdaspeed 3.

                              Fill us in on this new gearbox please and what did you have in there before?

                                It would be interesting to see how your car compares to others. Mazda3, I can see that being even, but i think your car is heavier but has more power.
