Default Big setback in my build...

Unfortunately, due to some unexpected surprises that had happened in the past couple weeks, my turbo miata project is going to be put away for a while... im selling the miata but I'm keeping the fmII kit, wheels and coilovers for future project... its a shame because to be honest, i was really looking forward to some wrench work. I haven't had a chance to build anything since my sti wagon...

Wow....that was one of the most informative posts I have ever read on the internet. Thank you for fully disclosing all the details of the bad news and not treating MT like a ******* twitter account.

You sell everything 5 minutes after buying it bro. This is nothing new.

yeah i figured id tell you guys a sob story and you guys would chew me out for it not being a legitimate reason for ditching the project. For my sake ill keep it for personal reasons


I had a guy call me yesterday for it and asked me to drop the price. i told him id do it if i kept wheels and coil-overs.


i wish the car set me back a couple grand but unfortunately for me, it is not

Its typical for young russian guys to buy a car just to resell it a month later. 99% of them do exactly that. They absolutely 100% CAN NOT COMMIT TO ANYTHING FOR LONGER THAN A FEW WEEKS.

I've yet to see someone besides myself and a couple of my close friends actually commit to a car and keep it for a significant ammount of time (at least longer than a year).

That's why from the very 1st day when Dre got a miata I KNEW 100% he would not keep it. The next one he won't keep either. And the next one. And the next one. That's just the way it is haha...

I've had SOOOOO many arguments with a few of the younger guys that call me for car advice about this I'm already sick and tired of it: I don't even want to give advice on a car to someone that can't keep it longer than a month. If you don't care about cars to keep them then you shouldn't even mod them.



What kind of FM turbo kit do you have btw Dre? There's a local guy looking for a turbo setup

In other news, I'm debating whether I should have another cup of coffee. I'm not only lucky enough to have two mugs to choose from, but we have decaf and regular. The regular is Columbian, not sure on the decaf. We also have cocoa, sweet.

WTF.

This si the lamest thread in ever. To the point that I am not going to fix that typo.

First off, you are telling a ******* sob story already so man up and bitch properly. This suffering in silence while pointing out that you are suffering in silence is bitch **** from VH1 or MTV or something.

Secondly, decaf? Are you ******* kidding me? You know what I drink when I dont want any more buzz? WATER. ****.

Good idea, Braineynutz. Chemical hair loss FTL.

Side note, I've switched from Speed Stick antiperspirant to organic deodorant. It doesn't work nearly as well, but I think it's better for the body. Strange chem on your lymph nodes not such a good idea, doncha think? Problem is, I usually end up stinking by the end of the day. Oh well.
