  1. Wow that happened really fast. Looks amazing already
  2. Ugh, brings back some memories of VERY long nights in the USAF, looking for a dropped nut or screw in the fuselage of a F-16...red X'd until that damn thing is found. Happened almost every time the ammo drum was R&R'd for maintenance.
  3. Hmm. Something different than the Miata... THE ANTITHESIS to the Miata is...Camaro ZL1 1LE. Rip snorting, heavy, organ bruising beast. You need Zero modifications to go stupid fast. You will reset all of your PB while napping during warm up lap. Lots of tires and fuel is all you need. You could probably tow your Miata with it.

    Goals 2020

    1. Maybe go to the track
  5. These guys apparently are good https://modernairflowdynamics.com/ my shop had issues with a couple of local (Austin area) well known machine shops / engine builders that are well known in the LS world. Found out they were far too lax on tolerances, caused some very expensive LS builds to fail. So he branched out to M.A.D. and found their tolerances and processes to be much better, and holding up much better as a result.
  6. Wow. Lot of goodness in that car.

    So you're saying then that NASA drivers crash a lot? Is there any org safe for me to play with? They all seem to be filled with bad or crashing drivers. I don't know what to do...
  8. Nice article. Love it when an underdog is appreciated like this. Love a good FWD hatch too. I still miss the goodness that was my 2008 Mazdaspeed3.
  9. Hah wow, loving this thread. Pat G will be tuning mine also whenever the assembly is finally completed. My build is NA and should be good for around 600whp.
  10. Sigh! sounds awesome. Anybody want to ride share to cover a chunk of your expenses? I have quite a few hours of track experience with FWD (Mazdaspeed3), RWD (Camaro) and AWD (Audi A4 and WRX). Over the years I've only been off track once in a car - due to brakes going to ice mode pushing hard for a TT time. Plenty of "moments" of course. Never raced, just HPDE's and a touch of TT and Autox. I'd have to run novice due to so much time off. In my own cars I tend to overdrive, but am nicer to other peoples' stuff. Just want to get some seat time.
  11. Hey. I'm interested in the bell 2015 and hans Do you make your way to Austin area ever?

    2013 Camaro 1LE

    Modern Airflow Dynamics is finally done with my engine. My rebuilt differential (it was FUBAR'd, don't take your sports car diff to a jeep shop) by a pro in Dallas is finally done, and with OEM 3.91 gears back in it (say no to Yukon gears) Now I'm 3rd or 4th in line for the reassembly (no I don't have the skill, will or space to DIY), and then the tuning schedule with Pat G - LS tuning guru. Will I have my car back before 2020? Not sure I care anymore. Talk about a year of hindsight... This wasted money could have bought a lightweight track purpose something or other for cheap and buckets of seat time to go with it. It's rather ironic that I'm a supposed TJ, when I have only been on the track for 1 weekend in all of 2019. In other news my "racebike" aka static display of partially disassembled junk, is still INOP. Am I even a TJ? I don't think I qualify. Things I could have done to scratch the itch and didn't do: -Kart rentals -share/borrow/rent track cars -More time on the motocross tracks (only went a few times) -Jump out of airplanes -learn to hangglide -take flying lessons -etc. What did I do instead? Moped, drank too much, acted as a generally cranky a-hole much of the year. What have I become?
  13. Ah. My first car was a 1979 RX-7. I loved everything about that car.
  14. Was walking the dog and took a different route. It's rural / spacious suburb where we are, 1-5 acres is normal. Walked by a place with a nice looking shop with large outside covered parking for RV - AND to my delight two red Miatas, one of which looks to be an SM build. Any of y'all ? Don't worry I won't come around and bug ya, just curious.
