Actually, 100 octane is $9/gallon at Laguna as well. At least, that's what it was the last time I was there last September, and that's what it's been for the last few years. Way back when it was $4.29 and we thought that was expensive.

I'd run E85 except that it's significantly easier for me to get 100 octane in the places I drive the car (around San Jose and at the track) than it is to get E85. The cost delta is low for the amount of miles I drive the Miata (rarely more than 4-5K/year) and the loss in range is significant.

The car feels so freaking good I literally don't want to change or touch anything (except nit-picking very minor details about the tune to make it absolutely flawless)
It has thus far surprised many people and bruised quite a few ego's.

That is all

I saved one of your photos in my "cars" folder at work. It cycles car photos every min and I tend to keep that monitor open so I can look at cars all day. Yours popped up today and I thought to myself, what a clean *** car. I know it came from MT.net but I don't remember who's car it is. Then BAM! You provide me with another sweet car shot.

Pansy. It'll hit 110 soon and I know I'll be in a literal pool of my own sweat soon wrenching on the Miata.

I pull the bakery fan home with me occasionally and point it at my junk while in the garage. Sweet sweet industrial fan powah.

My garage has no cooling and has 4" of insulation on it. There are no tree's or anything else to shield it from the sun, so when it's 100 outside my garage is at least 130.
Just walking into it the sudden temp spike is so significan't it's similar to walking into a sauna. I've a somewhat ok fan to vent my junk with too, but it's not very strong.
But yeah, I'm a pansy too

I got a chance to met up with 18 this weekend. In typical MT fashion it happened on the side of the highway in a gravel lot in the middle of BFE That MSM is just as clean as it looks in the pics. As to how you manage to keep it that way and actually drive it is a mystery to me. Also, I'm still stunned you don't consider that hot restart to be perfect, my hot restart would have made you ill

Ever considered blacking out the pinch weld?

Not had temps that high in my garage, but I know the feeling. No fan either, but I do have a large compressor. That's wonderful for cooling off with Just don't get the gun too close!
