I was there for that run. Let me tell you, that car isn't just stage 3. There's another 7-10 grand in that engine that's not APR's work. Also watched a mk4 r32 run a 9.06 at 167

I know its not. I think the people going nuts over it are funny, it's a stripped out dedicated drag car. Could have picked a better and cheaper platform and run better times for far less than is in that car.

This is why I can't get into drag racing. The amount of money thrown away in 10-15 seconds is nuts.

Getting married in October, and can confirm it's fucking expensive. Rings and ceremony is ridiculously expensive. Honeymoon anyone? Also this year, cylinder 4 ringland took a shit on me and turbo blew a month or more ago. How do you tell your future wife this is the best and worst year of your life?

If you don't find marriage, then it will find you. I'm an introverted selfish asshole, who had no intentions of getting married, yet somehow, here I am.

If it doesn't work out, there's always divorce Otherwise, marriage isn't as bad as others make it seem. Just some bad choices.
