Ownership Verified: Lancer of DOOM!

You should add KERS y0!. :p
 
That's a fairly massive improvement. It must be weird to drive a car that works properly at this point :p.
 
Really nice. :thumbup:
 
One week from today, on Sunday the 10th of October, I expect to see you at blossom athletic center putting the beatdown on Novice class. We all know that an AutoX on paper plates is the coolest thing ever. With this speed rocket your competition has no chance.

Also glad to see you in something other than your previous POS.

So THAT'S what's on the 10th! I was just about to ask what that was. Where is this? Who? What? Moo?

I'll go if you show me how to use the goshdanged newfangled paddles.

I think the beatdown's still going to be ON me, not FROM me, though. :p

Yay paper plates! I need to do something lulztastic with it still in paper plates.
 
Congrats ninja!

My cousin has the same exact Lancer. Its a pretty nice place to be (in the passenger seat anyway). He's had it for about 2 years now and it hasn't given him any trouble at all. Also, I can personally vouch for its ability to hit a deer, then a tree stump, and not get totaled. ;)

edit: d'oh! Ok its not the same exact Lancer, my cousin has the touchscreen sat-nav (which almost never gets used). Nevertheless, congratulations! I hope you love it.

Er - anyone care to translate in to the queens English?
I can't tell if the translator is trying to do the Queen's English or has just read too many terrible essays from Honors College kids who think they have to use as many lengthy words as possible, regardless of the fact that a less specific and simpler word would usually be clearer.

...probably the latter. Here you go:

Greetings, ninjacoco! I hereby cordially invite thee to join me at the autocross event in San Antonio (!*) on October 10. Autocrossing a car on temporary paper license plates is the best thing since sliced Wensleydale. With such a splendid new car, the other members of n00b class will all be defeated and sink into the swamp. A jolly good time should be had by all.

It is most fortuitous that you have this new automobile instead of that bloody stupid lemon. Good day.
So THAT'S what's on the 10th! I was just about to ask what that was. Where is this? Who? What? Moo?
My heavens! I was about to ask what was on the 10th, but you answered this question for me. Please give me further details about this event as soon as possible.

I will [try to, as I was hoping this was somewhere closer like the Castle Anthrax**] make it as long as you show me how to use the paddle-shifters located behind the steering wheel. I have nary a clue as to how to use such a new and unusual technological innovation. Why, such an invention is completely foreign to a person such as myself who is accustomed to driving automobiles with malfunctioning automatic transmissions!

Meddling children, please eversokindly remove thyselves from my lawn!

I am far more of a n00b than you expect. The other autocrossers will surely fart in my general direction (err, beat me...badly), as I am unaccustomed to driving a vehicle that actually responds when I press the gas pedal.

Five ("Three, m'lady.")...err, three cheers for this new car! I must find something hilarious to do with this automobile before it has permanent license plates installed.

*I may need to layeth the smacketh down on my homework this week, then. That's quite far. Can't someone have an event in Wacko? Maybe Hewitt? It's a nice pleasant little drive to Hewitt, and that's where the giant breakfast burrito joint is. Please? Beverly Hills, however, is right out. Bloody speedtrap.
**College Station, home of great peril and a handegg team that will face certain doom against thee Bears. O Lord bless this, thy handegg team, that with it, Thou mayest blow thine Aggies to tiny bits...in thy mercy. Amen.

Congrats on the car! It looks really good and I hope you enjoy it immensely, on and off the track. :)
 
Who what when where and why.

If you really want to go to one on the 10th in college station...

The TAMSCC are a good bunch of guys, sadly they are just too far for me to go there regularly.

As for Waco, I think the Baylor Driving Club puts on one a year but that is about it, sorry. Dallas has a bunch and they are closer than San Antonio. But clearly you should come to San Antonio cause we are cooler than anyone else.
 
TAMSCC has a LeMons class?! WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS RUNNING THE FAILTIMA?!

There's a lot of overlap between Spokes and SASCA, isn't there? I might actually know people at the SA one, then.

- must think about it

Oh, and because I keep forgetting to call foul on this:

How on earth is this car in HS when the stupid Failtima gets stuck in GS?!

Now, I don't want back in GS. HS is a happy place. Yayyy H-stock. But...COME ON. There is no way that dumb giant puffball sedan with its "I'm on a boat" suspension and only 7 more hp than the dang Lancer GTS (...on a good day when things work......which isn't typical for that car) belongs in dadgummed GS. The only possible explanation I can think of for putting it there would be that the SCCA hates it as much as I do.


ETA: Noooooooooo!!! Spokes is cancelled this month. :( Guess I'll see you on the 10th, then?
