Lifetime warranty on a shock? Interesting

Yeah, I'm not the original owner, I got them second hand, but never mounted.

Did an autox in mid September to shake down the brakes, they're not very good for autox because they need a lot of heat in them to work:

I added a water temp gauge because I don't really trust my OEM one. On cold days sometimes right when I turn on the car the OEM gauge would read operating temp right away:



Since I removed the key cylinder I had an ugly hole where it was so I 3d printed a plug to cover it up:

As always, an oil change before a track day at ButtonWillow:



And since Subiefest was the day after Buttonwillow I washed my Work Emotion CR Kais and added some more stickers before the track day:

The car survived another track day! The front splitter also survived an off with no problems. I had a slight improvement in times on these tires which were a best of a 2:09.49 from my last 2:10 but couldn't get past my PB of 2:07 on hankook RS3s.
My friend took some awesome pics:







And here are pics from Caliphotography:

I barely made it to Subiefest! After the track day we had dinner and I had a severe allergic reaction to the food and had to go to the hospital. I finally got home at 3am after a day at the track and hospital, slept 3 hours, washed the car and swapped wheels at 6am and made it in time for showcar load in by 8am:




Met up with SpecR and a few others from FB groups and Insta.
