Hey, it was 1997, the dotcoms were booming and git hadn't been invented yet.

Also, the deficiencies of CVS really only show up when you scale it up well beyond what you'd run into as a single user hacking on the MS logic. At that level, the simplicity of CVS is appealing.

I've got a Linux VM on my macbook pro with the toolchain installed. It was quite useful when I was trying to track down the cause of the sync errors I was seeing last year, I could hack it to strobe unused output pins whenever certain things happened, and then we logged that with TK's Rigol with the enormous memory buffer.

It's a bunch of C that's clearly been written by someone who usually writes assembler. Oh, and there's a bunch of assembler too, both HC11 and for the auxiliary RISC-y coprocessor that's on the die. (I haven't managed to dig up an instruction reference for that one yet, so the logic in there is a bit hard to figure out)

Can you upload your VM?

The VM is 8.3G. That'll take forever to upload over my home connection, so it'll have to wait until I go into work.

He can. We have the technology. The question is will he obtain said functionality, if he does not already have it.

I briefly looked at the code last night. And difficulty will depend on how far I go to implement it. Basic functionality would only be a few lines of code, but adding the UI and ability to adjust it on the fly will be more complex.

The hacky way is to steal an existing configuration parameter for something you don't need.

Either way it depends on how much I can bring myself to care.

I love stage 8. They sent me a bunch of new washers/clips no charge. And big thanks to sean for making me search for allen head bolts again. THis is going to make the downpipe so much easier.

Pics incoming.

Shoutout to Savington for enabling my crazy (stupid) dreams.

Walbro 450 e85. With the "Miata" install kit.




Need to figure out how the install goes. PM incoming soviet.

Interesting, red seal on the connector. When I installed my wally 400 e85 racetronix made it explicit that the green seal was the one rated for gasoline and e85.

Interesting. Isn't the kit like $5?

I'll email Andrew tomorrow. Do you have pics from your install?

Install kit is universal. And i have seen the green seal mentioned multiple places. Messages sent to racetronix. I'll get the right kit, and then set it on the shelf

Spacers come in today for the brakes. I need to install and measure.

Also still planning an exhaust. First stage is going to be cheap and easy. Straight pipe right out the middle. Will be quite fun on the street. I'll put a resonator right after where my downpipe is right now. Need to figure out which one.

If i hate it a ton I will buy a muffler and stuff it back there. Plan is to have v-band at the end of the downpipe, and v-band right after the axle.

Dat pump gonna needs some amps. Methinks it may be time for a relay and some 12AWG wire?

Get the biggest resonator you can reasonably fit under the car, its totally worth it.

That is also on the table. From what I understand its as simple as running 12g from the battery to the relay (fused of course), and then triggering the relay with the stock wiring?

No other details, its just the type of seal. My install is somewhere in my build thread. I did not trust the terminals in the stock bulkhead fitting on the tank to take the amps of the pump.

Not the one soviet linked. Which is 400-848.
I used the wally 255 miata sock. I should have used a new OEM miata sock. The wally 255 sock works but I fuel starve at 1.3g with 2 gallons in the tank.
