Is it completely crapping out at one point, or does the car start breaking up, or what?
Are you getting spark blowout?

Because I need all the fuel!!! No spark blowout at 34psi.

I read on "the other" miata forum that you had some problems with voltage still. Is everything all happy and is voltage rock solid with it now? Also I assume it is self-refulgating...

OK I filmed another SICK *** VIDEO

I am refining the "tuck iphone under chin against chest" filming method. Unfortunately, my audio recording has suffered due to my chin on the microphone. My shi is knocking under more than 15psi due to my ***** gas so here is a tiny 10psi video. I forgot how fu ing fast this is. I think that at 10psi it would rape the hell out of my forester at 20psi.

It is now Saturday, and today I am going to hopefully record a video that you (Min) will be jealous of. When I do, please take notes from my video and use it as an example of what the rest of the world expects from in car miata youtube videos.
Prepare to be amazed.

Would it be better to launch in second gear? In Min's car I mean. Or would some mathematical voodoo translate into something breaking?

Definitely would help. And probably would break something.

Har har. It's very wet outside right now and 40*. Speed limit was also only 45, so I only had second, and that's the one where you see the tach peg. I was keeping it below 5000 to try and keep it from spinning. That didn't work.

That's a gopro strapped to the steering column behind the steering wheel. It's amazing what the wide angle lens can do, it's only about 2" away from the gauge glass.
