It seems only fitting that the Lego set I would end the year on would be the mighty Audi R18 TDI. A fun little set from the Speed Champions line, it took about 30 minutes to build.

It’s been six months since I picked up the Miata, and minus a shift knob things have stayed pretty much stock. But I figured with a full set of tires out of my way I can let you know the ins and outs of buying the cheapest NB you can, and my thoughts on the Dunlop Direzza DZ102.
