  1. Not sure how this thread became a carnage thread, but . . .
  2. I dunno'. I usually enjoy instructing. But I keep my instructing load reasonable (i.e., usually no more than one weekend per month) so I don't get burned out.
  3. I found a news video related to that picture. Looks like Darwin-award stuff. 2 fatalities. https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1244428867589 I also though this clip was interesting. It shows how some authorities test for "rollover" protection. Notice the "ideal" rollover with 0 forward or rearward movement. Not much of a test IMHO.
  4. My goal is to get both the '64 'Vette and '69 Lotus finished and on track! Should be fun -- I just need to better control the demands of my "real" job.
  5. That would be the "Obsolete Technology Tree." Becoming quite common.
  6. Wait . . . I go to Dr. Smith. 😧
  7. That was the famous flip at Hallett where they had a bolt-in Autopower roll bar that punched through the floor attachment points. Proper roll cage for the win!
  8. Hmmm . . . . So, the federally approved rollover protection isn't any different than a "style bar"? That picture is gross. My other Miatas have real protection (the one I regularly track is caged). Might need to get a real rollbar for this one too. Always modding . . . .
  9. My first mod is going to be seat lowering brackets. https://auroraautodesign.com/collections/frontpage/products/aurora-auto-design-low-profile-driver-seat-mount-nd-miata-fiat-124 Even for daily use, I'm sitting too high.
  10. There are several in the DFW area. Drove it to work today. Top down all the way . . . .
  11. So . . . I started teaching Janice how to drive a manual yesterday evening. @RCman, I might need you to pinch hit for me again . . . . LOL
  12. Indeed. 2020. Planning to put a few break in miles and then see how it handles the track. The Recaros really grip you. The color is interesting. Looks grayish . . . then bluish . . . has some flake in it too. My wife noted that this is the first time in my life I've bought a new car for myself. 0% interest + no one buying convertibles in December.
