  1. Hey all,
    People have been asking a lot of questions about me but I've never had enough time to answer.
    So here we go:
    Basics:
    My name is Daniel, I live in Modesto, California, and I'm 21 years of age. I attend a university in Merced, California, studying in the degree of Mechanical Engineering (University of California, Merced). I work very early Tuesday and Thursday mornings at an engineering firm in Modesto.

    Hobbies:
    1) Gaming. Long time gamer, first got into it in 1997 when I received a Nintendo 64 for christmas. Started PC gaming when I saw my father playing Half-Life 1 in 1999, and got into online gaming with the opening of City of Heroes. Left gaming for a while (2011-2013) but couldn't resist playing again as of recent.
    2) Geocaching. Fun, adventure-based sport I spend about 2 hours a day on where multiple 'geocaches' are placed around just about every place you can imagine. www.geocaching.org has more information on it, I bet you'd find a thing or two on youtube about it as well.
    3) Automotive. I received my first 125cc Honda motor two-stroke TonyKart when I was 8 years old from my father, under the condition I learned to work on it myself and did chores around the house for $5 an hour to pay for the parts, fuel, and tires. I still have it, too.

    I run my own small garage-based business as well, DeeBucknell Performance, where I do great amount of suspension overhaul work, engine swaps, tire, fabrication, and general analysis all specialized within autocross and track racing.
    I'm very well known in the Sports Car Club of America in Street Touring Front-Wheel Drive class because of my very heavily modified autocross-track car 2007 Corolla S, which can put down cars in autocross it shouldn't be able to put down. To give you an example, the most recent autocross:

    As before I stated I do fabrication work, here's an example of a project I'm currently working on, known as a Locost:

    Other stuff:
    I run a popular facebook page (Jeff the Killer) based on dark humor posting as the name The Angry Badger.
