About Brando
Biography:
Hello FF5 enthusiasts. My name is Brandon I'm a 38 year old Wookie from Orange County California. I have been a factory five follower for around 6 years. My heart was once fixed on the cobra spec car however after trying to fit my 6'5" 235lb frame into the car I opted to build myself a GTM. Business didn't go as well as planned and my GTM never materialized. 6 years later and finding new success it’s time to try this again. 818 is my new standout car of choice and TCRA NASA SCCA or a combination of such will be my targeted sanctioned events. My past road racing experience is 4 years on a track configured EVO VII. Although it was ready for race class I still found myself running time trials further refining my driving skills. I must say, I’m looking forward to RWD as I find AWD to get a bit boring.

I have a decent amount of time working on my EVO however stripping this WRX has helped me expand my understanding of some of the mechanics behind this car. I am nowhere near the skill set of 99% of the people on this forum however I still think I can muster through this build. I’m giving myself 400 hours. I have until next summer to learn and that’s my goal on this site. Making friends in this world is also a highly anticipated bonus.

I should add I have my first baby coming Feb 1. I also am acting father to a beautiful 11 year old girl. That being said I find a lot of humor and parallels with many of you guys and the “wifey”. Even my girl gets a good laugh when I show her some of the threads.

I’m all eyes and ears and appreciate any guidance on this project.
