It's called a drag strip or a race track

Dude you are alive! I too hope to disappear in a myriad of mountain biking trails eventually. Get that 2860 rolling in the smurf soon...

This is really the right answer. But my recollection is that there aren't many of these in Utah. There's always Bonneville, right?

*edit* Bonneville would be awesome but I hear it absolutely destroys your car if you don't protect the **** out of it. I can't imagine trying to get all that salt out of the nooks and crannies.

Yeah we aren't blessed with a ton of autox/race courses in Utah. We have Miller Motorsports in SLC and then Vegas Speedway. We only have a few autox events. Both are about the same distance. Vegas would be insane to even attempt during the summer. I'd probably die from heat stroke.

Trust me guys, I know the video shows me doing a little bit of unsafe driving but I haven't gotten a ticket since I was 17, and I rarely do more than 5 over the posted speed limit.

Due to a HUGE misunderstanding(power complex Idaho cop), while on a Ducati, I was held in the county jail for a weekend with 10+ Mexicans going through crystal meth withdrawals and a guy who had just stabbed someone several times. This has made me a giant sissy about breaking the law. No, the soap was not dropped.

Those silly ID Mormons. They're just jealous.

When I lived in Boise, I was about 3 miles away from the Firebird drag strip. That was fun.

Why the hell do I keep commuting 45 miles each way in the Miata rather than my 1-gallon-each-way TDI.

This car is so addicting to drive. I've driven some very fast cars before, but there is something nervously exhilarating about doing it in a 2100 lb car. Even though the acceleration matches some other german cars I've driven, it is your perception/connection to speed that is skewed. You feel like you are going double the speed you really are going. I can't explain it properly, my brain is fried after a long morning of baking.

No restoration/buyers remorse is present. Having a hellish day? Go take the Miata out for a spin and you'll feel better guaranteed.

Jeremy Clarkson was not wrong when he said: "Put simply, an MX5 feels more alive at 30mph than most other cars feel at 100."

I wonder what he would say about a boosted one?

Well at least now if someone steals it and goes hooning they will end up killing themselves.

Lets hope I get the satisfaction of catching them dead in the car. Morbid, yes, I know.

I have LeMans images running through my head of them losing their connection to earth. Can only imagine what that feels like.

Not too bad. There is still a bit of a pulsing feel though, or juddering. Still feels like there is something off causing some oscillation in pressure as it is accelerating. Minor, but it is there.

7+ years in Utah with out ever getting a window chip. 1 month in a Miata and game over. Damn I got nailed hard.



Also while auto tuning around town, is there any way to have it stop adjusting my idle fuel cells? Really annoying to enter the correct values.

Set your autotune values to stop working below 1500 rpm.

bummer about the glass.

yes, just set the parameters in autotune

I always have it set past 1300 and past 35kpa and tune the bottom manually. It has never worked properly down low for me on any of the megasquirts

I use custom filter

"rpm < 1500 && map < 35"

this should stop VEAL from messing with those cells.
as 18psi just said, it really likes to mess up the low KPA cells. I added a && tps < 3 parameter as well I think (I don't have it infront of me) to stop it from completely leaning out my bottom row.
