I was trying to figure out how you could move the wheel so much like that.

Driving like bosses. I am pretty sure that means you need to be there driving to.

Can I call dibs on your sexy *** for instructing me? I need to know when to push it harder on the straight aways and take it deeper into the braking zones.

I agree with both! I got an assful of Nick into 3 in that first bid. Be sure to know heel-toe well, you'll need it - like I need LSD for my daily!

I don't know if I can do it. I'm degenerating from doing one track day a quarter to doing one a month now and that's just too many $$$. Now, if the lake house sells it would be much easier. I'm running Chumpcar at Sebring on Sept. 22 and that's not cheap and only a couple of weeks before this. And I wanted to run with MVP at RA in November. I guess it is time to get rich so I don't have to limit myself so much.

My local group - you always have groupies - have been talking chump recently. Sounds like SO much fun (and since I'm a millionare, money ain't an issue, even though I say it is) but time is a problem. We'll have to see... but looks promising seeing as we have 7 guys in our group.


The pig...

I just watched your AMP run in the DD- you might check those engine mounts before any spirited driving. I think your engine was on the verge of rolling out of the engine bay- watch the stick dance in the vid!

Engine mounts.... who needs 'em! on the list

Spooky - hard to tell since I've only had 2 track days with it, but so far so good.


Some more for the pig... Begi (3") and Synapse from Nick

Adding another to the stable... '94 for parts I think but snatched for $450 - clear title too... Chump? Dunno if it's a torsen or not - anyway to tell based on interior trim? I don't have the VIN yet to call it in. I pick it up today - pics are from CL.

Saw that car, wondered if the shell was good enough to strip out and turn into a track beater. Nice find!

You sir are correct, it's a torsen... I'll decide what to do with it after I check the engine out. If I build it as another track beater, should I keep the ABS? I say no... but...

Find out if that 94 has cruise control. If so I might want to buy the cruise control off of it.

What's up Bryan? Sorry I haven't called you back yet :( I keep saying I'm going to sell the miata, but I still haven't listed it yet. I want to get it on the dyno first and see what the new turbo puts down.

Lars- didn't pay attention, but the engine bay shot shows the cruise control booster. You can have IF I don't get mine working in the '93.

David - I was in the area, thought I could get a ride during lunch? Anyway, next time, but don't sell it before I stain your passenger's seat! And speaking of dyno - I gotta get my ---- together... this is what my buddy posted with his track beast 240 - stupid SR20s are stupid... gotta keep up with the Stones'
