I’ve only had blizzaks before and they were great, but I feel like I killed them fast. I’d also like to try out rallycross and I’m assuming a winter tire would be better in dirt then a summer tire. Any advice from Oppo?
So I got a new job where my pay increased by about ~50%, but my round-trip distance to work went from 36 miles to 66 miles. I really, really hate putting so many miles on my 328i, so I was thinking of getting a fun manual car to both finally own a manual car and also stop putting so many miles on my “good” car.
I am very happy about this. 30-33mpg for my normal commute and 35-37 highway. 35mpg was sitting right at 80mph for the entire tank too.
I spent $3000 on my MX-5, and it’s done almost 400,000 km.
363 days. That’s how long I owned 3 cars at same time. I will miss Mimii but she is going to a good home. Parking three cars, insurance, maintenance, etc. was getting tiring. I had her for 3 years and 10 months. We had some good times but I’m ready to move on. A picture for your time:
Look at this little man child piloting this tank.
I’m depowering a steering rack for my Miata build. It’s not going well.
I’ve started reassembling the rack on the bench, but it’s way too tight. It feels all bound up and is very difficult to move, and I haven’t even fitted the preload device yet which is for adjusting the drag on the rack.
World-weariness is cheap these days. The same old thing endlessly repeated; a copy of a copy of a copy. How many movie sequels and remakes have come out in the past few years?
Marty and Moog ran an MCM meet & track day down at Mallala Motor Sport Park, and it was obviously totally fucking awesome. I’d estimate between 500-1000 cars showed up.
I had by far the shabbiest MX-5 at the event (#771), but as they say, builds don’t happen overnight.
The atmosphere was awesome and there was loads of…
I have chosen to only now both name, and reveal my latest money spending decision. The NA Tax is real.
Then took it to the tail of the dragon and drove it home 1000 miles on the second day of having a manual.
Halogens vs. LEDs Review
To celebrate the worldwide release of the MX-5 Miata in late 1988, Mazda has officially announced limited availability of a “Miata Classic” beginning early next year. The company plans to announce a specific release date in November or December.
Step One: Be spontaneous! Leaving for a three night camping trip at 7:00pm with no planning whatsoever COULD leave you stranded in a broken car without service in the middle of a pitch-black, bear-infested forest. It could also just as easily be the start of... Well, no. Wait. It’s exactly what I just said. Uhm. Guys?…
I’m going 1999 on the Miata! The stainless steel scuff plates are from a ‘03 SE. All I need to get now is a black dashboard skin and the rear interior from another NB Miata! I’m missing a lot of the black interior pieces but as long as I can get the dashboard and the panels around the convertible, I can put the…
Similar to these but in gold. Nothing fancy, but I needed some 15"s so I could put decent track rubber on my MX-5.
People suck. Got the License # before the asshole got away. Called the cops, who showed up and said they should be able to nab him pretty quick. Sounds like prosecution would be a pretty cut and dry thing, mainly because a surveillance camera at one of the neighbors’ homes backs up what I saw.
Debating Miatas still and I just really don’t like the idea of owning a black/gray car. Let alone paying $20k+ for the privilege.
