    P.C. isn't that far away. I haven't been there in years though. There's quite a few guys in Panama City and the Pensacola area but, not many in Tallahassee. Only person I can think of who's a member on here is DGajre777. I've never met him though.

    Yeah, a lot of the guys over here kinda drop outta the Dsm scene though. I don't normally hear of any dsm'ers from Tally. Dunno why. Kinda odd really being the capitol of the state and all. Hmmm....

    A lot of people went to different platforms I guess. In Tallahassee, there's a lot more newer rides than older ones. I see a couple DSM's from time to time but, it's just a handful. There's not a whole lot going on here. Seems like most of the DSM's in Florida are in the Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and Miami areas. Sometimes I wish I still lived in Orlando. There's a lot going on there and I miss going to the track. Hell, even Slowboy racing is now in that area. It's good to have a DSM shop in your city for sourcing parts or getting work done.

    Your Talon wouldn't happen to be blue would it? I've seen a blue one in that area a few times.

    Nice Talon. I haven't seen that one around. I'm near park as well. I sometimes see this stock blue one riding around that area.

    Im in marianna fl. about 45 min west of Tallahassee on I-10. I'm actually trying to set up a ride. just like a 100 mile round trip thing where some of the local dsmers can come show their stuff off. details are still sketchy but hoping for sometime next month. JW if anyone here would attend?

    I live over in Chipley FL. for you marianna and P.C. DSMers. I just bought a 96 Eclipse GST thats all stock from what I can tell. I have never owned a DSM or ever worked on one but I LOVE driving it. I was wondering if anyone can help me with a general go over and list of things that need to be serviced or replaced. The car was sitting for five years in Panama City Beach so I'm guessing belts need to be changed but any help would be great. I wanna keep it as stock as possible.

    The biggest concern should be the timing belt. If it breaks, your bending valves at the very least. Its supposed to be replaced every 60k and its highly recommended to go with an oem timing belt as well as an oem water pump. Search how to do a boost leak test. Other than that I would change all of the fluids and get new spark plugs. You want to use ngk bpr6es plugs.

    Thanks I usually use O'reillys just for belts and basic parts is there anywhere else any of you have been able to find parts cheaper but without losing any quality? Or is there any place that has parts that are so good there worth the extra money? I just want to be able to keep her running at peak performance
