So this day was another great day. Although it started a little rocky for some of us, Garage Life started on fire and while everyone outside was running for water, I was running to my phone to try and catch some flames… this is what I got;
Then, my second run of the day the wall just came out of nowhere and hit my wheel!
Maybe it was me that was excited and came in too hot and hit the wall, the tire still held air! for how hard i felt like I hit i think the wheel held up pretty well! Here’s the rest of the carnage …
I put this blast on Facebook but had to share here as well because I can’t describe what happened at the track better than I had previously; “I just wanted to do a medium/quick shout out to the guys at Courtesy Nissan, Billy, Phi, and Vince, you guys are awesome! From this past Saturday while at Willow Springs, I couldn’t get the Autozone down the street to have a clue what I needed (3 people I got transferred to), I called Phi at Courtesy, he got me a part number, I called Autozone back and they said they couldn’t get it. OK I can see how that can be a dealer only part, so I called the closest Nissan dealership-armed with the part number. Hoping that I could make the 30 minute drive and just swap it out at the track. But that guy at the dealership seemed very unenthused and told me he didn’t have the part. I asked if he could do a parts search for me if any other dealership in southern CA had the part and he said he could not…I live and breath car things-I know you can check. So after I got off the phone with that Nissan dealer, I asked Phi From Courtesy Nissan if he could check for me which dealers around me had the part. He did, and let me know Riverside Nissan had the radius arm I needed…Still too far for me to drive and be able to finish the track day, I bent the arm back into place and drifted for the rest of the event. Then today, I called Billy at Courtesy, gave him my card number, and he’s shipping out the arm! It just seems like when everyone else found it too hard, Courtesy just pulls through with the best service.” After we bent the radius rod back to somewhat normal I finifhed the track day and we all sang and danced…
