  1. I never had problems with heel toeing in my 335i. Every shift was perfectly rev matched, every time. Oh yeah...mine was an automatic.
  2. Actually, I looked at it and said,"They're still making those?"
  3. Y'all Corvette fanboys need to wake up to reality. I've got video of my truck passing a Corvette in a Wal-Mart parking lot on a snowy day. That's proof, INCONTRAVERTIBLE PROOF, that my 01 Tundra is superior to your sissy boy Vette.
  4. Not possible with the stock motor. The 86 needs a cold air intake and a K&N filter to make it produce Corvette levels of torque. That kind of mod isn't for the faint of heart, it takes a professional to install those components properly without endangering the manifold.
  5. That'll be the day that you buy a nice Irish wool sweater like I have.
  6. The early Tundras (00-02 I think) had a bad metalurgy on the overdrive gear. If you towed with overdrive on, it would eventually eat the bearings. I have an 01, and I disable OD to tow. It's not great for the fuel mileage, but the motor can tow all day without complaint. But I'd rather have a later model with the 5.7 motor.
  7. File a police report to let them know that the plates were stolen. Otherwise somebody's going to start racking up toll bills that will be sent to you. I know this from experience.
  8. It's a really nice car. Thanks for letting me take it for a spin at Cresson.
  9. Thanks VoBoy. I want the rails so that I can make an adjustable seat for a Sim racing rig. Where in Houston are you?
  10. If there are no takers I would love to have both sets of seat adjusters. I don't need the seats, just the adjustable rails. I'm in Austin but I know people in Houston who could pick them up.
  11. I've got no idea. I just stick an orange triangle on the back of my car and put my hazards on. #Miatapowernation
  12. I can put you in touch with my friend Vitek. He's building one now, and can give you advice if you like. He autocrosses an LS swapped Miata, so you two would likely get along.
  13. This is great news, I had no idea that these trailers had come up in value so much. I have one of these that I paid $1000 for. I did some similar mods and also upgraded the brakes. I bet I can get $9k for it now!
