Road Race was excited to get involved with Mitsubishi Owner’s Day once again.
We hosted the dyno contest for the day, and were running cars on and off the dyno the whole time.
RRE Family driver Coco Zurita was in the booth, signing autographs and talking to fans all day, alongside RRE model Erica Ocampo. There was a little something for everybody, and we stayed busy all day.
Thanks again to our sponsors Turbo by Garrett and Turbosmart for helping us out with awesome raffle prizes!

Pictures by tons of different random people (but all the best ones are taken by David Karey because he actually knows what all the knobs and buttons on a DSLR do).
Rossy had an idea to get a bunch of people together for a toy drive to benefit the kids at City of Hope in time for Christmas. The result went WAY beyond expectations. The event was a huge success. There were a bunch of DSMs, EVOs, some drift cars and even one STi that showed up. Also, Joon Maeng was on hand signing autographs while his car was filled to the brim with toys that he and Rossy
A few of the track regulars from So Cal EVO go together this year to organize their own time attack competition. Rules and classes by and for the people! With points for various mods and some HP caps, they divided it up into a “Street” class and “Modified” class. Street cars are limited to roughly 400 whp and 5 points. Modified cars are capped at 500 whp and 10 points.
RRE volunteered the Dynapack AWD chassis dyno to be the official dyno for the series. We hosted a dyno day/BBQ to kick off the race season before next weekend’s opening event at Willow Springs Raceway.
Here are some pics from the event. Along with some dyno charts from a couple of the cars that will be running. One of the guys just picked up a new camera and looking at Nikon D7000 Accessories, using the remote and microphone for filming the dyno pulls here in the future is going to make for some sweet video! No more editing out video of me running from the camera to the driver’s seat :-P

MMSA asked us to sponsor a So Cal EVO and Eclipse club meet here at the shop. On a Saturday we blocked off the cul-de-sac and had pretty large gathering. They shot real film, got some cool group shots and working on some cars. The above commercial is what came of it. You can also see what they shot @ Irwindale’s 1/8 mile drag strip at night.
