What do you need that currently isn't available. I am open to anything right now.

I need a huge ***** shift **** or maybe a fist. Something I can put my hands on that feels natural, extra veiny.

What about shorty rear bumpers...the one that looks stock but tucks-up under the rear lights and finish panel? Hell, a big ******* bolt on splitter for my new RB bumper would be nice.

Definately don't want to make that out of fiberglass. ABS or wood might be a better idea.

so is it time to dig up the miata hood pressure map again? not yarn strings, but actual pressure values. someone occasionally posts up a graphic that has the pressure gradient of the car's profile somewhere.

you know, I know there was a thread about the CAD model of the NA on miata.net and Travis has cosmos works...

that's inches of merc or what?

is the bumper really forcing that much separation at the leading edge of the hood?

sweet! The FM hood vents sit right over "0", lol.

I wonder if the little air-foil they added changes anything?
