You and your silly cats. Spark cut is too much fun.

My head starts to hurt if idle too long in my car now that I don't have a cat. I call them freedom headaches because I am not a god damn commie.

If you drive the fumes are behind you?

I think I became immune to fumes a long time ago. I just get happy.

This. Exactly this.

And also stoplights get pretty annoying too.

After MMRLS I wanted some downforce. I had my eye on the blackbird wing but I just couldn't justify the $300 for one. After some thinking I dicided that I could make my own for a fraction of the cost. $30 later I ended up with this...




The downforce it produces is incredible. The car is so much more planted on high speed turns. I can definitely feel the front is lighter so I may have to reduce the angle. And I know its rough around the edges right now but I'll smooth it out eventually.

Looks simple and effective. The only bolt on Miata kit I found for an APR GT-250 wing was something like $1500. 98% discount FTW.

I understand there's some high level aerodynamics going on here but it's still just a wing IMO.
