Surprisingly no, it's for not having a Florida license. :/

Also, I'm going to post in the spark blowout thread a replacement(from o'reilly) bosch 211 unit worked great until I drove for almost an hour yesterday. Need heatsink so bad. But now I can't go to the junkyard tomorrow.

Dude. Did you know you have the power window snaps for a tonneau cover that people on miata.net can never find and would love to have? ****, if you had manual windows I would have asked you how much so I didnt have to fab something myself, cause you know I got to have that tonneau cover for the extra rear downforce and stuff.

Same! I always assumed the previous owner did something stupid. The "bolt" on the side mirror along the door and the bullets on the dash were factory?

And on an NB no less. I've wanted a tonneau cover since I drove my dads TR6 with the tonneau



I'm not sure how much aerodynamic advantage it would give but it certainly makes the car a lot more tolerable to drive top down in the cold/mist/rain.

I never understood tonneau covers. So weird.

I guess I should sell them, so that someone could enjoy them. No idea how to remove them though.

I actually want to give a shout out to Track Dog Racing. I emailed just asking if they had a warranty or replacement program. I had MAJOR doubt but it's worth a try right?
Well I got this after we talked about what happened:
"I can offer you a one-time discount of 50% off on a replacement TDR-99M122 air splitter. "

Now, How's that for customer service/satisfaction!
I didn't really ask, bet, or argue. I'm highly impressed.
With the way my day has been going, constant driving around, dealing with FL state government trying to get a license, and my computer has Unmountable_Boot_Volume BSOD, this definitely brightens up my day.
Such appreciation.

I met Mr. Mattman (Matt V2 Man) last night at the USF car show which turns out got huge since the last time I went.
I sadly didn't get on the dyno they had since I had no knowledge of them having it nor the cash on me.
But I did have an awesome time, haha.

So I've been drag racing to see how fast the car is and I'm pretty pissed. Drag racing was never my thing especially with the Miata. But anyways

Went to the 1/8th mi Weds and did alright at 9.2s with a 2.0 60ft with ignition breaking up a bit but did giod with only 3000rpm @ 3-4psi launch, I didn't want to break anything.

I went to the 1/4mi last night and just did horrible. 15.5s passes, car would go into 2nd, and ignition breaking up a bit. Hell, even my 1/8th there was 10.1s!
Only hit 2 runs in since the line was so damned long.

Well, on my way home my car would only hit 10psi, O.o?
Tried a little this morning and still only about 10psi.

Hmmm time to check for leaks I guess but it doesn't seem like a leak

My Tundra would likely do that while carrying the spare wheels for the Miata.

Would that really make his car almost as slow as a stock '01 though?

Man I'm sorry, sad, sad.
