    Anybody watching the Virtual Le Mans? I must admit, I didn't think it'd be all that interesting to watch. The graphics are incredible and while it's not exactly, it's good. I know @JLee has built a few sim seats over the years and it's kinda cool to see how far sim racing has come. I found very little on the setups but it looks like drivers build their own simulators and run some software package. They've got commentators calling the race as well-it really does look fairly real. The pit stops and "shit happens" parts of racing are definitely fake. The do have "in car" views and the track cameras. Every once and a while, you see the sim seat and driver setup but otherwise, again, it looks pretty realistic.

    Definitely not the real thing but something that is kinda fun to watch for a bit.

    Had to take my COVID high risk ass and find a Star Smog shop in order to renew reg on the Tacoma. Called up Paul over at Fremont Star Smog Check. Explained my situation and his response was immediate - not a problem, full social distancing per CDC, no need to worry, come on down.

    Stopped by this morning, he let me scan the VIN and plug into the OBDII port. He had his mask on the entire time. Was out of there in less than 20 mins. Awesome dude. Can't recall prices, because he was totally cool and respectful of my germaphobe paranoia, I just gave him a $100 bill and said thanks.

    If you need to smog the vehicle and are in the area, give Paul a call.

    Yep. $50 for shipping. But, I bit the bullet. Figure these stands will last longer than me, so I'll pass them on someday.

    My buddy recently moved up to Roseville and is looking to get his truck lifted and re geared in the next month or so once everything comes in. With that said he’s looking for a shop around the area that does good work. Aside from a good gear shop that’ll do the 5.29’s anyone have some recommendations for the cmc and pinch weld trim he’ll need as well. He was looking at Stellar Built, but any recommendations would great.
