Velocity3G : who are you?
Back after 12 years... It's Tripp

Well, I don't see many of my old family still hanging around the forums, BiteSize, Stryder, Wavmixer, UnOwned, Br8knx, MagiKen, or really anyone... so let me introduce myself:

Hi! I'm Tripp! From Central Valley California. I Bought my first Eclipse GS back in Feb of 2000. I joined here back in Mid 2000 sometime.. If remember correctly we had about 250 members nation wide and we were going to petition AEM to make an Intake for us if we could set up a group buy... Wow, things have changed. I remember when MPH Unlimited was going to put out the first turbo system for the 3G, if only they could make it actually add power... WaveMixer was hand soldering 3rd Brakelight LED Scanner lights called the "Knight Rider Brake Light" and we were collecting funds via paypal for him to have them printed in batches of a dozen, lmao. Anyways... I started an Auto decal / Sticker business called VelocityGraffix that watched this club grow to over 4,500 members nationwide. It was amazing to be a part of it all. I think the pinnacle was when Club3G took over the Dublin, CA Shopping Mall & Movie Theater for the opening of 2Fast 2Furious.

But eventually, I started a family, Sold the business, and let the eclipse go... Let's face it. These cars are a labor of love. There isn't any real benefit to being loyal to the actual 3G platform other than being different. These cars look cool. However, they are not performance cars from the factory. I loved the family here just the same.

Well, after all these years (12 long years), My sister just gave me her 2004 Eclipse GT. At 180K miles, It's been neglected and abused but I know exactly how to fix it and where to get the info I need. It will be my Company car and rolling advertisement, which means I can justify building a nice ride out of it.

I doubt anyone really cares, I just wanted to give you guys a little back story on me as I'll be poking and lurking around the forums in search of answers, with "Noob" by my name.... I'm kinda rusty in the 3G world but I'm not a noob, I'll get caught up.

Thanks Guys,
Tripp
