Very nice. Welcome to the NB2 family

The front and rear should come off pretty easy.

The sides will leave 3 or 4 holes in the body if it was installed per factory instructions. You can just get the small skirts to put on the sides though.

here's what it looks like

They will physically come off with no damage, but if the paint is faded and the plastics have been on the car since it left the dealer, depending on the color you'll be able to see it.

I'm leaning towards the blue one or the black one.

The blue car is an '02 with LSD, but tan leather, which I hate, and the driver's seat is thrashed. Asking $7k, with 125,000mi.

The black car is an '04 with black cloth in good shape, probably no LSD, and 99,000 miles. Ask $8k.

I think it's probably gonna be one of those two. All Miatas from '01 onwards had projector lo-beams, right?

Good point, I'm not gonna chance it. Scratched that car off the list.

What happened did someone take this and dip the entire van in that hydrographics camo thing?

The real-estate situation in Manhattan is getting out of hand. This is what passes for a studio apartment "conveniently near mass transit" these days.



$3,400 / mo.

I was struck by the fact that this cars only instrumentation appears to be a gear indicator, progressive shift light, speedometer, and possibly 4 warning lights? Maybe I'm missing something.

I guess when the vehicle is built with RedBull money for the single purpose of winning a single race, **** like oil pressure and temperature don't matter. The results are either "Win" or "Not Win" and the rest is just details.

All that info is probably available to the team remotely but the all the driver needs to know is right there.

It actually looks like there is a lot more data there than I initially suspected. I guess now I'm surprised its so small.

I'd actually like to see something totally new; Autonomous Vehicle Racing.

Yeah, I'm aware of the DARPA Grand Challenge, that's not what I mean. I want to see wheel-to-wheel racing on a closed circuit, at 300 MPH, using entirely driverless vehicles.

I envision two basic classes- one in which it is permissible for a two-way radio link to exist, with some or all of the processing power located in a fixed-base installation and the crew permitted to transmit certain inputs to the system during the race, and a second in which only data transmission of an emergency-stop nature is permitted into the vehicle, with the entire CPU required to be located within the vehicle itself and run the race without any human intervention.

With the human out of the cockpit, the vehicles will be free to engage in arbitrarily dangerous passing maneuvers, limited only by the risk:reward calculations of the engineers and accountants, without regard to the safety *****.



EDIT: Random Picture:



Got the last of the hardware removed from the hand last Thursday, and was fitted with a removeable rigid-plastic splint (kind of cool, it's made of thermoformed plastic which they molded directly around my hand.) The scarring isn't nearly as bad as I'd assumed it would be; that incision is from where they had to go in in and flip the bottom half of the base of the metacarpal bone around 180°.

Took the splint off this evening to wash the hand (first time in 2 months) and start doing a little range of motion. I've got **** for mobility right now and it hurts like hell to flex the wrist, but I'm typing this with both hands and using the mouse with my right, and I was able to pick up a whiskey tumbler with my right hand and take a sip from it, so that's progress.

Joe, you'll be glad to know the framework for this is already in place.

The connected car, autonomous driving, the sharing economy, and the maker movement – all are happening here in Silicon Valley. Toyota Motor Corporation is sponsoring a series of Onramp events in order to engage with these communities and to explore the possibilities they enable.

Our first event is on July 28, 2014 at the Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, CA. Professsional drivers including top drifter Ken Gushi will be on hand to demonstrate their skill. And you will be able to ride along and experience high-speed driving in the latest Toyota Scion FR-S sports car!

Toyota chief engineer Tetsuya Tada will be on-hand to discuss the ECU-CAN gateway system and to formally announce the upcoming Toyota Onramp Challenge, a Toyota sponsored hackathon planned for September 2014.
Sony will be there as well to demonstrate how you can use data from the gateway system to play back your ride (and even race against yourself!) on a PlayStation with Gran Turismo 6.

Come enjoy the fun of driving, meet Toyota staff, and learn more about our upcoming Onramp Challenge!
I'm super disappointed that I missed this event seeing how it was free and it was in my friggin back yard.

This may me a lot closer than you think
