zoom2zoom: i only went into 2nd once. i babied first gear, then floored it.

fireindc: the afr's are around 11.2:1 at wot and full boost. idle moves around, but it idles fine.

my frankendiff works great, i still rip all of 2nd though. instead of peeling out in a straight line it now goes all over the place. the frankendiff has the 1.8 miata housing, miata pinion bearing, 1st gen rx7 lsd, 1st gen rx7 3.90:1 ring and pinion, and miata stub shafts with the stock miata clips. this one should hold for awhile.

stock pressure plate with the six puck works well. its holding daily driving at 13psi. my stock clutch died after 5 days of boost. and it had tons of meat left on it. now that i've replaced all these drivetrain components, i wonder what will break next.

I've made my speedo jump from 0 to 25+mph before. 5500rpm clutchdrop.

You think I was looking at the speedo while I was doing that, though?

Lol, I'm usually looking at the road. I'm running 205's right now. I want to get some drag radials for my other rims. My current tires are getting pretty low. I really want to get those 6UL rims, and throw on maybe some 245's
