and that is all that matters i bet Gary is jeulous of us. this forum is alot more informal more like abunch of gear heads sitting around the garage trying to bench race and build the best miata possible. i still say and use on every vehicle i have ot date that pcv's are crapp. VTA babby you know you wanna. (it realy doesn't matter to me so long as it works it is more about preference for simplicity and stubborness than function. if i am one thing i am deffinetly stubborn.

I wouldn't give a **** how shitty & uptight my forum was if I made at least $5375 a month from sponsors.

43 venders x $125 a month (basic advertising package)

FM and TireRack pay additionally to sponsor specific sections.

you're forgetting the 10% made from classifieds as well.

I help run a non-car related BB and we are a completely commercial free and member supported. We do not have sponsors or any of the bullshit that comes with it.

M.Net with its "sponsors" means that I can't call that a sponsor is a thief and a liar. - which I got a few days time out for. Gary told me that it is between me and that sponsor even though he accepts money from them.

The Mods at M.Net also can't (supposedly) get involved in any real debates, but they still do. If I was a Mod and I couldn't publicly say that a sponsor or anyone else was ripping people off, I'd quit in a hearbeat - which I told a Mod in a PM.

I don't know this BB well enough to say it's better than any other, but M.Net definitely has its faults.

Did they lower the price? I thought it was $175 a month for the banners.

I like how the people here are able to think for themselves and willing to try new things instead of having another cookie cutter Miata.
Lube splashing baahhaha! I like that forum for searching about stuff and to see what people are up to in the power forums, but the other sections are dead to me. They have a lot of of cool guys over there, and that keeps me reading. I have all their banners add blocked and the such hahah . Also I hate their greddy bashing overthere. Plus no kill stories? **** that sucks that i cant post about the time I ******* OWNED this mini van man! It was sikkkk.

AGREED. Everytime i post there, for instance a question about tie rods, i get responses like "tie rods cant bend" "why would you want that, its not legal for STS2" or responses that have nothing to do with what i asked and just tell me that im wrong for asking. Ocaisionally i get what im looking for but i have to search through pages of filler/rambling.

I guess you just have to get the best from either forum. I go to both and each is helpful in its own way. Must admit tho' - this is the only one that makes me snort coffee over my keyboard with some of the replies. Lube splashing indeed.

You gotta be careful with lube, too much and it will increase unsprung weight and effect roll couple- which is a bad thing boys and girls.

Lifter tick is good. It lets you know your engine is running.

Yes but a luggage rack will balance the unsprung weight and make it 50/50 weight distribution again.

Ah you made a simple mistake, you didnt take into account my Style bar. That effects the balance but thats ok, it makes me look cool. Did you guys see my katskinz leather seat covers? They are only like 10000 dollars!

A lot of the guys over there dont care to make their miata fast I guess. Have you ever paid any attention to the "miata of the month" on the front miata.net page? They are all like bone stock cars or some hideous looking POS. I dont get it.

Ya some of the larger miatameets in CA are mostly just freshly washed/waxed bone stock cars. I hate when mags like sport compact car have sections like "clean car of the month" and show a 06 sti that is bone stock, just freshly waxed. Why not show a clean 15 year old car instead of a car that just came off the lot?
