Just finished up a review on a new flashlight that I picked up at the gun show this past weekend from my friends over at VRI Tactical. It's a great little piece.

Recently decided to purchase some RAM upgrades for my laptop. It's not that it wasn't that fast with 4GB, but when using a 2GB RAM windows 7 VM (VMware Fusion), things started to slow down. I still need to use windows in a VM for software applications like QuickBooks, and to access the KVM switch we have out in Buffalo. I purchased the upgrade from Other World Computing, aka macsales.com, where it was only about $130 for the upgrade. It was slightly higher than newegg, but OWC had the video card upgrade for my Mac Pro (A whole different fiasco). Anyways, the laptop is running lightning fast

My company, Technotic Media, is working on a new website for Patriot Glass. As such, I have been working on an intro for their website, as requested by PGM. Check out this YouTube video of the animation, which is 99% completed (Just had to add a couple things at the request of PGM). Thanks and enjoy!
Once their new site is done, this will be up there as the intro!
So there hasn't been much to update with the project as of late. Since my last update we worked on getting the entire interior stripped, including all of the sound deadening. If we are going to reach our goal of 2500lbs with driver, then every little bit is going to count.
Once we finished stripping the car, it went over to Reactive Chassis Co. who is building the roll cage for me. Once we get the car back with the cage in it, we can fit the dash back in and then have it made in Carbon Fiber. Also we can then work on getting the seats mounted and braced in the car.
Along the way here, we have been receiving some great parts....
Thought I'd post a couple more pics that Ian took of the Mini when we were out at Dunnville Autodrome last weekend. Check them out!
Here's a couple of videos of our mini cooper s out at Dunnville Autodrome in Dunnville, Ontario, Canada. The camera set up we used was from ChaseCam, and we'll be writing a full review on their products soon. For now here is a couple samples of the video.
ihatestickers.com just added a bunch of great new products. You should all check it out!
This past saturday we were out at Dunnville Autodrome for a track day with Onyx Syndicate and NYSpeed.com. We brought my wife's Mini Cooper S and we filmed for rspeedTV, part of rspeed.org. It was a great time and we got to meet of a lot of good people. It definitely was interesting to get the Mini out there for some lapping and to see what we could do with the car. We'll definitely be going back for sure!
Yesterday, myself, CaviMike and Rick from BTF Racing, Inc. pulled the sr20 from our project twoforty. It took several hours with a couple of breaks in between, but it came out with pretty much no problems. This was the first motor I have ever pulled and with the right tools, it doesn't seem too difficult at all.
Rick is going to start working on tearing the motor down, and I'm going to send some of the engine oil to Blackstone Labs for analysis. I've trailered the car back with me so I can continue to strip the interior and sound deadening. It goes to Reactive Chassis soon for cage work.
This past saturday, my friend Kevin and I deciding to start project twoforty and strip the interior of the 240sx that I bought from Ricky Chu. The strip went very easily and we had the interior out in just over an hour. We still need to scrape the sound deadening from the interior and pull out the dash. In just over a week it will be going to Reactive Chassis Co for the roll cage, so it needs to be ready for him.
Check out the pics:
Well it is time to say goodbye to my Honda s2000. It was probably the shortest time I have ever owned a car, being only 6 months, most of them with it stored for winter. Not a huge loss though, as even though I really enjoyed the look and entertainment of the car, it just wasn't exactly what I wanted. Also considering, we have another little one on the way, it was time to get something else.
I definitely had some good times with the car and I happy with the next owner's attitude with the vehicle. I'm sure he will enjoy it very much!
