So Keith, I find your statements paradoxical. On one hand you are quick to challenge an opponent to a duel on track confident in your ability to best them, as if that that has any pertinence to the discussion at hand. On the other hand you say you find driving at the limit difficult. I don't find driving at the limit difficult and I find great enjoyment in turning lap after lap probing those limits. However since even $pec miata is a battle of dollars over driver skill, I find my greatest on track satisfaction in the rain where my ability to handle the car at and beyond it's limit of adhesion puts me in front of drivers whose speed comes only with the comfort of traction and the benefit of horsepower. With all that said, I'm not advocating disabling traction control because it's going to make you faster on a 10/10ths run up your local version of the Dragon. If you are attacking a public road in competition with your buddies and/or with no margin for error you are foolish, that should be reserved for a closed circuit. I am saying that there are circumstances where the interference of traction/stability control can make the situation less safe and less satisfying for a sufficiently skilled driver.

For me, mandatory non-defeatable traction control is the tipping point for a future of automated driving that I don't want to participate in.
idk about you guys, but driving at the limit is easy for me, a noted sex haver.

I will say one the BRZ, the TCS is horrendously over-protective....past the point of just being annoying.

I routinely turn it off just because on/off-ramps will trigger it turning steady state cornering. For backroads stuff I only go 6/10ths because of what you can't see around the next corner.

Aside from a biker, sand/gravel, surface change etc. Lucky I ended up above ground still as we did NOT ride that way on the sport bikes years ago.

According to this reviewer the NE miata should be electric so it is easier to drive in a city.

When you get your reviewers out of journalism school, this is the kind of nonsense you can expect.

Lots of intake side photos.



Is the oil baking on the top of this valve?

Caveat emptor. I recall ordering a catch can from them about two years ago. it had no internal baffling, no drain or method of relieving pressure. It was however, very shiny.

Lots of DI vw/Audi have intake carbon problems. Supose to be from not having fuel shot at the back of the valve and running exhaust valves open longer for egr. Many cars get so bad they need to be walnut blasted to remove it. ^That valve is clean in comparison.

Yeah, some of the first DI Audi engines have significant, power-impacting deposits after only 20K miles.

These guys are selling a service for cleaning it, but they include dyno results:

I would be more interested in photos from a company that isn't developing catch cans.

Also, I haven't seen widespread issues with other skyactiv engines and some of them have been in US cars since the 2012 model year.

I heard that if you stamp "authentic part" onto a knockoff, everyone will pay premium and you can tell people you're running legit parts, not made in china sweat shops

Hmm. The CR crowd is being pandered to as children by the manufacturers. How clever.
