Well sure, as have I.

But this thread has been plagued with nothing but problems. From what i could tell anyway. Though, it doesn't help that every week it's time to upgrade somewhere.

It mostly happens if you're doing something that no one has done before.
I accounted for everything in my build and still broke things which I thought were unbreakable, or didn't imagine breaking.

Exactly.

This isn't a build thread, its a mess. I don't care what the end result is (if there ever is one) when you just throw parts at a car and have others wrench on it.

99% of his threads/posts are a waste of space and time. He can take a serious discussion and turn it full on retard with just a simple sentence. He's that much fail.

Yeah, and you're talking about a guy with limited mechanical experience, modifying his first vehicle, that's trying to put together a car to make 6 times the stock power. His power goals are well beyond what most of us ever dream of pushing our cars to. Even under the best circumstances, you're going to run into a lot of problems taking a miata beyond 500whp.

Definitely. But bet you anything that given the amount of money and time he spent on this thing 80% of other people would already have a seriously bad as.s machine like a year or two ago.

Its his 1st project and he's basically learning from scratch which is cool, but everyone and their mother knows that like 70% of the stupid crap that happened in this thread was due to severe mental retardation and not lack of automotive knowledge. Some of the things he did even my dog wouldn't do.

Its his time and money so who cares. Its just fun watching

I think the frame rail notching pic pops up enough on here that no one is going to argue with that.

Your thread is literally the exact opposite of this thread. Win vs. Fail, drive vs. break, results vs. drunken babbling, a lot of pics vs. a pic once in a while. I can't really think of much else to compare, but I'm sure it would be opposite.

If your assistant were shown assisting more often in the build pics, page views might increase.

I love how Faelflora has been banned for weeks now and his thread is STILL one of the most active threads in my subscription list.

Fae is like herpes. Just when you think its gone he reappears as a dark red patch of itch and shame.
