    I'm sure that can be arranged!

    PS. I am entered into the TBG Live competition at Spring Awakening this year and would really appreciate everyone's support/votes! Even if you think evo's are better!

      I won the TBG Live event yesterday at Top Tier Imports Spring Awakening meet. The weather was average but I am extremely happy to take home the win. I receive a feature in PASMAG and move further in the competition to potentially battle at SEMA!

        Update:

        During the TBG Live voting I had a photo shoot with a local photographer that goes by the name Old Soul Photography and I am extremely happy with how these rain shots turned out. He is very talented. Here are a few of my favourites.







        And here is a very unique shot my brother took.



        Also I have a photo shoot for the Pasmag feature coming up in July. Can't wait!

        Now comes the fun part. If you follow me on Instagram you already know where I'm going with this one.

        I was out for a nice casual drive around the outskirts of Brandon when a deer jumped onto the road. I just missed it and thought I was in the clear. That was hardly the case. Another deer bolted out and I had zero chance to try to avoid it. It smashed into my front fender, head smashed against the A-pillar/windshield/hood, exploded my mirror, dented both doors and then slammed its butt right into my rear quarter. I was in complete shock. It was crazy loud since I had the windows down and bits of the mirror went flying at my head. Luckily no one was hurt and I didn't loose control of the car. Had the deer hit me a millisecond later, its head would have come right in the drivers window and could have severely injured me. Scary.

        Originally MPI wanted to call it a total-loss but promptly came back to me saying I could repair it. I didn't even have to show them my extensive receipt stash! I would be completely crushed if they wrote it off.

        The car is now at the repair shop and they are fixing everything as quick as possible so that I can still have the photoshoot done for the magazine.

        Last year I blow a motor and this year I smoke a deer. Great record lol!

        Here is a picture of some of the damages.



        Always has to be something!

        But any-who, the new found power of the current setup is pretty nutty. It catches me off guard most of the time and shoots some serious fireballs out of the hood on most hard pulls. Its great! However I still find myself craving more power. Typical.

          Please help a guy out by taking 5 seconds to vote!

          Well the continuation of Tuner Battlegrounds has begun and myself (#1 seed in north America for TBG Live) is going head to head with the #1 seed for the wildcard in Stage 3 (top 32). As of day 2, I am down about 50 votes and could really use any and all help I can get.

          It's very easy to vote.
          All you need to do is:

          1) click the link below,
          2) login with Facebook,
          3) click gold star ⭐️ until it turns red and says "thank you for voting".
          4) repeat every 24 hours please!
          5) get other friends and family to do the same.

          Theoretically if everyone who votes gets one other person to do the same, we should be able to easily take the lead back. I think this part is the key to a win.

          Stage 3 continues until Sept 25 at 12 noon EDT.

          Thank you very much everyone!

            They really need another option to vote, apart from facebook. But thats just the old man in me saying that.

                Well I lost by 60 votes even though I was 100 votes ahead going into the last day. I had 24xx votes and he had 2500, which is a 600 vote final day for me and a 700 and change day for him. Surprising really. Back to the drawing board lol.

                I still need to do a summer update, and also need stupid Photobucket to get their life together and fix everyone's photos.

                In the meantime my winter plans are as follows:
                -Haltech Elite 2500
                -Flexfuel
                -ID17xx's
                -Jimmy B tune
                -LOTSSSS of boost!

                cheers!
