Just moved to Augusta 5 weeks ago, and last week bought a new project 1999 eclipse spyder gst.
Is there any good performance shops in the Augusta area?
I am doing a ground up restore on the car, previous owner mistreated it badly, but I don't currently have a garage nor a lift.... need a good shop to do the install on my exhaust and downpipe and possibly on my 16g turbo upgrade and front mount intercooler.

Weather was a bit overcast but the rain held out long enough for the event to take place. We saw some new faces and some new rides out this month.

Thanks to everyone that continues to support this event and we look forward to it getting bigger in the future.

Been on track as a student and a racer with "that guy" many times!  Never ceases to amaze me how anyone expects to learn anything if they won't listen.  I learn something new every time I ride with a new instructor or a fellow racer if I'm simply willing to 'let go' of the thought that I already know how to do it.  When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

Marc Yount's Tire Pros / Toyo & Nitto tire recall
« Last post by 02JEEPX on November 28, 2014, 02:13:04 PM »
175,000 Toyo and Nitto tires are recalled

Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas Inc. has announced a safety recall campaign on approximately 175,000 Toyo and Nitto brand tires intended for light trucks, SUVs and vans -- including those used in commercial applications.

The recall campaign covers select Toyo Open Country H/T tires (featuring Tuff Duty technology) manufactured between November 2008 and June 2013, and select Nitto Dura Grappler Highway Terrain tires manufactured between May 2007 and April 2012.

In a small number of these recall tires, production variances in the belt package during the relevant production periods may have created conditions that may put undue stress on the belt edge, according to Toyo. If undetected, this condition may potentially contribute to a tread/belt separation and/or loss of inflation pressure, which may increase the risk of tire failure and a vehicle crash.

"The recall tires were manufactured at our plant in Sendai, Japan (CX), and in Kuwana, Japan (N3), and can be identified by examining the sidewall stamping for the brand, model, size, the 'Made in Japan' mark, and the Tire Identification Number ('TIN'), which includes the plant code (which immediately follows the DOT mark) and the manufacture date (i.e., the last four digits of the TIN)."

Here are the tires being recalled:

Toyo Open Country H/T (with Tuff Duty technology)

LT235/85R16 120Q E/10 (DOT CX 9JF41 5108 through DOT CX 9JF41 4211; and DOT N3 9JF41 2010 through DOT N3 9JF41 2713).

LT245/75R16 120R E/10 (DOT CX A3F1E 4408 through DOT CX A3F1E 4211; and DOT N3 A3F1E 2310 through DOT N3 A3F1E 2513).

LT265/75R16 123Q E/10 (DOT CX LTF31 4908 through DOT CX LTF31 4211; and DOT N3 LTF31 4210 through DOT N3 LTF31 1012).

LT285/75R16 126Q E/10 (DOT CX LFF42 5108 through DOT CX LFF42 4211).

LT265/70R17 121R E/10 (DOT CX 7KF43 0109 through DOT CX 7KF43 4211; and DOT N3 7KF43 4710 through DOT N3 7KF43 0812).

LT225/75R17 116Q E/10 (DOT CX DXKAM 0210 through DOT CX DXKAM 1112).

LT235/80R17 120R E/10 (DOT CX A0LCC 2111 through DOT CX A0LCC 4411).

Nitto Dura Grappler Highway Terrain

LT275/65R18 123Q E/10 (DOT CX BWEAW 3307 through DOT CX BWEAW 4211).

LT265/70R17 121Q E/10 (DOT CX 7KEFA 2907 through DOT CX 7KEFA 4211; and DOT N3 7KEFA 4710 through DOT N3 7KEFA 2012).

LT265/75R16 123Q E/10 (DOT CX LTEAW 2207 through DOT CX LTEAW 4211; and DOT N3 LTEAW 4610 through DOT N3 LTEAW 0912).

LT245/75R17 121Q E/10 (DOT CX BXEFA 2507 through DOT CX BXEFA 4211; and DOT N3 BXEFA 4310 through DOT N3 BXEFA 1812).

Owners of affected tires should return to their tire dealer as soon as possible for free replacement tires.
