Those are my Miata’s compression numbers...

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Well, daisies. It wasn’t the starter that was preventing my Miata from turning over but it appears to be something far more complicated. The most likely case is that the timing belt skipped a tooth or two, in which case thank FUCK the Miata motor is a non-interference design! However, I’m worried that this timing mishap could be a side-effect of something more critical. The car’s at a Spec Miata-focused shop that I’ve done business with in the past so I know it’s in good hands. It’s a shame it broke down on Friday morning because I was going to take it to Charleston on Saturday and autocrossing on Sunday!

Shout out to KC Green’s comics which make me laugh when I need it.

Me missing Sunday’s autocross isn’t too unfortunate because I got to see history made live in F1, Indycar, and Nascar all in the same day. Anyway, I have enough funds saved up from my job to take care of a rainy situation like this so the Miata will be back on the road in due time. This won’t set back my current Miata project which will involving a near-entire redo of the interior!
