Tryin' to make this car go.

so here she is... sittin there all empty insides. been spending every weekend for the last couple months prepping a 1.8 from a '94 to drop in my '92 after blowing out the clutch in aprilish. It's been a long time comin, but its movin' along. hope to have this sucker running in august ready for some auto-x, complete with a torsen lsd, new clutch, stiffer mounts, properly rerouted coolant sys, and no leaks!

more traction for the miata

yay! my first post :)
so i finally sourced a limited slip differential for the miata. this one is a torsen type LSD with 4.10:1 gears pulled from a 96 with somewhere close to 130k miles on it. i've read a lot of positive things about these mechanical LSD as opposed to the expensive clutch type LSDs and am looking forward to seeing how the miata handles with it on the track. gonna try to get her under the car sometime before next saturday's streets of willow event (hah... we'll see if that actually happens).

i've also got a newish oem hood coming to replace the ravaged one that's currently attached to the miata. happy days :)

midnight run

I had an idea of a name for a car group for a little while. In homage to The Mid Night Club in Japan.

it might be fun to stick them on our helmets on our bumpers sideways D:

I was just having fun playing around with logos.. james thought it was cheesy but what the hell lol! :D

I can fly!

Another reason to get a roll cage

safety first!
