Since then I made a changed career change from a Registered Vet Tech to a Subaru Sales Consultant at a dealership in Maryland. Working for Subaru allows me to work with animals still, but in a different way with charity events and adoption days. I am currently in High-Performance Driver Education (HPDE) with NASA racing working on honing in on skills to become a better driver on and off the track. I’m currently racing my 2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 and working on building my 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX wagon that is JDM swapped to become my dedicated track car.

Hi, my name is Tristan Snider and for as long as I can remember I’ve been addicted to going fast. As a kid I was always trying to go as fast as I could. But it wasn’t until I got behind the wheel that I realized that cars were my true passion.
Ever since then, I’ve always been trying to feed my hobby. Every time I tried to walk away from the car scene when it got to expensive or life got in the way, I always came back to it. Eventually I said f*** it and went all in. I still do some other small hobbies but car life and racing is my focus in my spare time.
I’ve been through my fair share of cars and have loved almost all of them in some way. Follows is a list of my top 3 favorites and bottom 3 haha.
MHD OTS e30 Tune
MFR Front Splitter
APR Rear Wing 67”
TE37SL Diamond Black (19x9.5 front 19x10.5 rear)
Continental ExtremeContact Sport (275/35 front 295/35 rear)
HKS Adjustable Springs
AMS Wind Buffeting Fix
Verus Brake Master Cylinder Brace
Verus Diff Cooling Plate
My current build is by far my favorite. It’s a solid platform right out of the box and has only been getting better with the small amount of work I have put into the car.
Scion FR-S. I loved this car even though it was very underpowered it was a great drivers car. Easy to turn off all the nannies and let it slide around and a blast to drive even though you wont be getting anywhere very quickly haha.
91’ Opel Kadett that I had while I was stationed in Germany. It was a $1500 junk yard car but I was still able to throw it around the Nurburgring in the 10 min range. Nice to have a car you could just rip on and not worry about what happened to it.
Worst cars I’ve had
Hyundai Genesis 2.0t Spe-R (1st gen). Long story short, fully built engine, custom turbo kit, 500whp and a whole lot of engine rebuilds. Apparently the 2.0T motor has really bad oiling issues at higher power levels and RPM’s so even with a dry sump system we were still have issues with the main bearings fusing to the crank. Needless to say I hung onto that project much longer then I needed to and learned my lessons from it.
2017 Ford Focus RS. I had high hopes for this car because I love hatchbacks and an AWD platform with 350hp and 350tq sounded like a good time. But unfortunately, the engine was weak and the transmission wasn’t much stronger. Had a few buddies build theirs and it just seemed like one thing after another. Still a good car for what it was stock.
2002 Ford Mustang v6 automatic. This was the biggest turd I have had. But when your daily race car keeps blowing up on you, ya need a daily no matter what it is. This car was so slow you would plant your foot to merge onto the highway and it would make a lot of engine noise then slow down haha. Eventually it would pick up speed but I’m almost certain the FR-S could have taken it in a drag race.
So, since all of those lessons learned I have a set of goals for the Supra. It is being built to be a track to but also something I can drive around town if I want to. Around 700whp is the end goal but thanks to the incredible minds over at ECUTek I’ll have the ability to pick a different map on the fly to adjust how much power the car is putting down. The car has proven its capabilities on track and at the drag strip. I can’t wait to see how far I can improve as a driver and what the Supra teaches me along the way.
Last but not least is the people that have come into my life from the car scene. I have made so many great friends ever since I’ve been into cars and I wouldn’t change any of it. I am also very lucky to have found the love of my life thanks to the Supra and the automotive community. Vickey (aka MsBoost) just so happen to have another Supra and gave us a starting point to what would turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened to me. I don’t think I would of found my soulmate if I didn’t follow my passion for cars and motorsports.
TLDR: I like to go fast
The Supra is my favorite build
My GF and I have the same car just different colors and model years
