For the street, I disagree.
For racetrack, it's likely better.

Orders product.

Compares to other well known product before even receiving the new product.

Also isn't it pretty well known that FM clutches are just custom comp clutches?

You should also buy an EFR to spool your Brotrex

He got a defective TOB with his. They sent him a brand new replacement.

I was legit thinking about that. After the built motor, just see if the TSE kit can squeeze an efr 6758 in there.

Soooo, does anyone know if vinyl vehicle wrap stays on at high speeds? I'll need to wrap my car, or at least the doors, hardtop, hood, and trunk.

Although isnt there some paint I can buy that peels off afterwards? I know about plastidip, this is different. I got rid of the stickynote that had the paint information.

Or anyone know of a place that can paint parts cheap with the oem colors? I went to Diamond Autosport in Sac, and they were extremely expensive. Like I'm embarassed how much I paid for my sideskirt paint.

You shouldn't be embarrassed about any of your skirts; you're already a miata owner.

Both wrap and dip won't come off. You can vinyl wrap or plastidip. Either way, have someone do it for you cause it's a giant pain in the butt to do the whole car for a 1st timer (been there, done that).

I've got a "paint guy" that is really cheap in Sac now (Diamond Auto is garbage ripoff). His work isn't top quality, but his prices are unbeatable. just FYI

Dip will indeed come off. Ive seen the hood peel off of a gtr on a straight. It seems like any little nick or tear will allow air to start forcing its way under.

Maybe if you're getting bead blasted by rocks it will rip/peel.

My experience has been same as aidans: Dip holds up like a CHAMP, actually surprised with how tough it is.

GoPro came in, with remote, suction cup mount, external mike, carrying case and 5 batteries lol.

Finally got a good quality phone suction mount. Arkon is the brand name.

Lots of suction.

Got in touch with Rev/Dimitris, ECU finally shipping, albeit in a blue case instead of a black one. I told him it could be pink, purple, glittery with rainbows all over, I'll take it lol.

tbh, I'd prefer it that way.

Yeah I'm pretty sure he makes them in batches to save on shipping.

This is good news. If you get it in the next few weeks we will start t00ning asap.
