<p>Another point to make is that Tektronix are by far some of the most expensives scopes you can buy. But also, the best. We get people who are still using scopes from the 90's, call in and ask for updates. Or people like Sean. They just never die.</p>

<p>Now that I have a real job I have way less time to actually do miata things. Tonight I think I'm going to pull the brake pads and cross my fingers that they are tapered. We shall see.</p><p>Axle rebuild is put on hold until the next few track days. I will be carrying a spare 1 piece axle to the track just in case something goes wrong.</p><p>I need to fix my brakes and maybe try to get an allignment before next friday.</p><p>Also install the vent windows.</p>

<p>Well partially hoping they are tapered. If they are it means that throwing money at the problem is the solution. If they aren't then maybe its something else. I wish I could get brake ducting done by the next few track days but I don't think it will. Maybe before the thunderhill day.</p>
