Went to a nice little event this past Sunday here in Okinawa at Kadena Marina. The Black Onyx Pacesetters (Okinawa Chapter) in conjunction with The Kandi Girls were running a charity bike and car wash, with proceeds going to a local Okinawan orphanage.

Car page finally completed and drags are coming!
[thumb:724:l] A couple of brief car updates for you, but ones that are worth being a featured story.

You can find information about my 1992 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR, the modifications it has and its performance here.
And secondly, we are just over a week away from the first drag tournament of 2009 in Okinawa. Yes, the Omega Drags will be taking place on March 15th up at Nago Circuit. From what people have said, it looks like there is going to be a good turnout, with some of the tuning shops that don’t usually take cars up there competing. I’ll be trying to better my performance in the Zetalube Drags of October last year, when I picked up the 2nd place trophy. A podium place might be tough as I’m a little out of practice, but it all comes down to how I perform on the day.
So expect a bunch of photos and a detailed report soon after that, hopefully with some success to talk about. Although I do consider myself lucky in the position I’m in; I’m pretty quick to make a decent showing at the drags but not quick enough that I feel any pressure to do well. It’s just a chance to go up there, have some fun and time some 150m runs.
