I'm sorry, all I saw were ****. Which is why I think men make better musical performers. Or at least ugly women.

Vivaldi is the man though, and yes she was good.

Whoo hoo! After being laid off for 7 months, I finally went back to work yesterday. Being a victim of the residential housing market crash, work has been slowing down over the last three years. I watched my annual wages decrease by $10,000 a year since then but this year was the worst by far. I only worked four days since December till now.

Hopefully things will start to turn around. I would hate to work anywhere else, I've been with this company for the last ten years and am quite happy here. They are trying to diversify and break into other markets so maybe everything will turn out OK.

Now that I have some money coming in I need something to spend it on. Hmmm, MS2 daughter card is looking pretty good right now.

******* mnet stalkers. I swear. I wish Sav could wave a banahmmer over there as fast as it swings over here.

So this guy is asking about 17" wheels for a NB SE (our MSM) and I give my helpful suggestion as usual only to be followed by some n00b dipshit with this typical reply

You'd think that putting 17"s on a turbo NB would cause the world to fall apart and I'm sick of seeing people spout this **** off at every opportunity. So I reply...

Too many people around here just read and repeat...even when information is wrong. I'm guessing you saw someone say that 17"s are bad for everything and are just repeating it.

In autox having 14in rims really is the way to go, you will get more out of 2nd gear, which most if not all courses do have you leaving 2nd. This I know from experience as well as reading the unsprung weight link found in this section, you should check it out. Not only are heavy big rims unsprung weight, but rotational weight as well. This about how much horse power you lose from the crank after turning flywheel, big brakes, big rims and with big rims comes bigger tires which will weigh more than little tires. And if you think about it HP is work, the more work it takes to make something go, the more gas you will use to produce that power. There are pages of this info here, read it. To original poster, if you think I am wrong like this guy does, search it. You will find many reason how it will affect ride quality, and even better, numbers and science too prove it. And Doppelganger, I would love to know how I am wrong, please be specific, if you do I will do some research for you and show you how I learned about it a little.
Mind you, his signature reads "96M DD, Occasional Autox....RB intake, Cobalt Exhaust, FM stage 2.5 (stock rear bar) SS lines, Hawk HP+, 14 degrees BTDC...Rims and Tires are next!"

What a ******* tool. He has sent me 2 (TWO!) PMs regarding this post....in the past two weeks. I love it...

Yeah...I really want to take the time to reply to him after that last one. Maybe his lost sleep will result in brain damage preventing him from knowing how to use the internet.
I'm so sick of seeing everyone just jump to "17's suck 15's are the ONLY way to go" bullshit. Then comes the whole rotating mass argument. Yes, I know about that, but there are still too many variable to just say that 17's suck compared to 15's. Besides that, a lot of these "reviews" on switching from 17's to 15's or 16's rave about ride quality...which is most likely improving because of better/newer tires. Yeah, going from a 20+lb 17"s wheel to a 16lb 15" will be a small improvement, but going from a **** tire to a nice tire will make a bigger difference in handling...and that has nothing to do with weight. Not that I can calculate it, but there has to be a point in which a lighter 17" wheels will out perform a normal or heavy 15" on rotational mass. Tire weight aside for now, I'm sure a 14lb 17" wheel is better than a 18lb 15" wheel....or for those in the real world...a 205-50/15 tire mounted on a 15" Diamond Racing steel wheel vs a 215-40/17 tire (same brand/model tire) on a 14lb 17" rim. Seriously though, the differences are small (even smaller when applied to a Miata making 250+rwhp) and most people suffer from the placebo effect when switching because they want to feel a difference. Poor decisions can be made when buying both 15" wheels and 17" wheels.

Though it may not really be the favorite here, anyone watch anime?

I didn't until my buddy showed me one called Angel Beats. To this day, it's the only one I've actually gotten into. There's only 13 episodes, so it's short. Even if you don't like Anime, like I didn't, this one was actually really good. It's not like that bullshit romance/action ****.

Watch it here: http://www.animedreaming.com/anime/angel-beats/

The only Animes that exist are Fooly Cooly, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away.

Replacing it. Or both really. Mine is bad enough that I am willing to lose convertible functionality with a HT. Also gaining the advantages of the HT of course.

I was wondering why my injector was leaking so damn bad 'till I pulled it out. It had no upper seal, o-ring, and the pintle cap was actually shattered and preventing it from sealing against the block.
