  1. Let's get together in the next few weeks and enjoy some of this spring weather. Salt Lick in Driftwood, Jester King, or something with a nice outdoor space. Who's in?
  2. Let me know how it goes, there's a couple spots on the ND that I can't seem to get off the paint :/
  3. There's a guy in south Austin that gets decent reviews, Taurus Auto Detailing. http://taurusautodetailing.com/auto-services/
  4. 1. I hope you get your raise, teachers need to be paid more! 2. Can't get anything till the '16 Miata is paid off. Then there might be some potential for a 911+Miata in my life. We'll see.
  5. Yeah, I feel you, but with me it's a 911
  6. Proper track? Come on man, Cresson, H2R, etc are all proper tracks. There is no such thing as a "proper track", there are tracks that tend to favor certain styles of cars, but that doesn't make them not proper.
  7. Truth. I passed same cars at the same event in my Fiesta ST and I'm slow as dirt.
  8. They are all taken, found that out by 9:30 this morning ;)
  9. Robert, you can kill this post if it's too OT. I volunteer IT services and take Ukulele classes at Armstrong Community Music School in Austin. It's a non-profit music school that helps out with various groups in the Austin area. Organizations that receive help and/or music classes: - Veterans Guitar Project - SAFE Alliance (Women's Shelter) - Travis and Lanier High Schools for young mothers - and more! So if you feel inclined, I'd really appreciate throwing a few bucks to the school! Also, if you are interested in taking lessons as an adult, or lessons for your childen (6mo+!) let me know!

  10. Thanks for the heads up! I've heard from a co-worker that his two daughters did this program (or something like it) a few years ago. I'm doing the coaching training right now, hopefully I can help out (in any way) with the Kyle, TX one so I've emailed the contact person for that event.
  11. Went to the training sessions. It was pretty badass :)
  12. Over the last ~15 years, I've DD'd all generations of Miatas ;) Lemme give you a rundown: 1. 1991 - This was a HPDE car that was driven very regularly because it was hella fun. No PS, no AC. It had Tokico dampers and Eibach springs. In the spring/fall/winter it was a decent DD. Wind noise was strong, and there was a rattle here and there. Overall pretty OK and did a trek to Oklahoma City from Austin and wasn't uncomfortable. 2. 2008 PRHT - The best DD of them all, IMO. I had the GT model and added Bilstein HD damper and Eibach springs with FatCat bumpstops. Rode great, pretty quiet inside, no complaints at all. Did some New Mexico and Las Vegas runs in this one, great trips and didn't get out of the car complaining. 3. 2004 Mazdaspeed - Stock suspension was harsh and not all that comfortable, even still, did a Monterey, CA trip in it without too many complaints. Road/Wind noise is lower than the '91, but not as quiet as the '08. I've since got an OEM hard top on it and replaced the suspension with Flyin' Miata VMaxx Classics. Good DD now, but still not '08 level, but close. I'm going to pack the space beneath the parcel shelf this weekend to see if I can get some of the road noise down just because it's cheap and easy. 4. 2016 - Better than the '04 w/ soft top, noisier than '04 with HT. Done two Monterey, CA trips in this without much complaint. Interior room is VERY improved over all previous years (I also lost 100lbs, so that helps, lol, but even before that it was better). It's nice to have bluetooth and now CarPlay. I've got the RoadsterSport springs (300fr/200r) and it's still a good ride but not as good as the '08. If you have specific questions of any of the above models, lemme know.
