The Not-A-Project Miata Project

Most people drive a lot faster in other people's cars simply because they don't have to fix them or know the car's limits yet. (They always find limits given 2 runs.) The Professor drives even faster when he is driving your car with you in it and he will talk you thru the whole damned course while c...

Rear bang over bumps/railroad tracks

Not to worry as I have met deductible for medical insurance all ready this year :wise: Let the games begin. I did over 1100 continuous hops on one as a kid just because. Hey we didn't even have hula hoops or frisbies yet and had party lines so you had to wait your turn with a dial phone several othe...

Painting a Miata

Considering the amount of work you did on this car it looks really good. ALL that you have described are why I will never paint a car again unless it's with rattle cans flat black or with some of that power wash off crap. Hopefully you have a gravity feed spray gun. I had to use an old siphon design...

Aug 10, a Sunny day in Venice

Ah true you'd have to compete with Philip for the championship, never mind lol. Philip cannot keep his car running and AKA "Farm Truck" in a real stock race car is kind of dirty. Just let him co-drive the REVO. You guys crack me up. FTD = Foolish Turd Display. (You are all shitting yourselves.) Gue...

Aug 10, a Sunny day in Venice

p.s I welcome all the AWD comments, especially from the Mayor . Well. I haven't watched very many of your old races but you were always jerky as a light switch. This time you were very smooth and utilized actual steering and braking in a straight line. If you stay this smooth in the dry you will be...

Remember Toyo T1-R's?

Still the coolest mirage I’ve seen Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk +1 with Ken there. Sometimes I go to get a cheapo oil change in the Port Richey Ford next to their Mitsubishi Shop. I have to shield my eyes from the ugly coming off that lot. Even tho' I think the Prius are even uglier with thei...

Remember Toyo T1-R's?

I ran a set of Proxies T1 Sports on the C5 a few years ago. Got the C5 stock sizes (same as your pickup) from a local George's Tire for $650 installed (nearly 1/2 price of most tires). Tire Rack has only one 19" size now. They were really good all around tires rain or shine xcross/hwy. They used to ...

Aug 10 FAST Classic @ Venice Airport

If you really, really give a crap and want to force them to add these things, they probably would. or put them in R1. I don't think Andrew and Aaron really care which class they are in. I suspect Doug doesn't care as much as it sounds like he does. He's a conspicuous pot stirrer. Since I said nothi...

BTW. At "Classic events" no one really cares who wins what. Most guys are jumping from car to car making times jump all over the place with the same number. Technically someone driving a Crown Vic could use their same number in an MO or R1 car and get FTD.

These are the discussions that should've happened last month regarding rule changes... Sorry, the pix didn't come out until August and I wasn't at that event. You guys aren't the first. Some guy came out with a stripped RX8 once last year that he actually drove to the event as had lights. There hav...

Aug 10 FAST Classic @ Venice Airport

Sorry we can't make hot August events that are far away in the morning. So what's with MO (SS, AS) on street tires? Can I buy a shifter cart and run MO now on 140 lawn mower tires? I'll wear closed toed shoes and so will my guest. FTD is a piece of cake now it seems!!
