Just because I'm late to the Miata party means nothing. I helped my dad before I was a teenager. He taught me to rebuild brake cylinders before I was old enough to drive. Back then (old cars) there was no internet to order parts, so you either found one at a junkyard or fixed what you had. First car I can remember working on was an old tank of a Kaiser (Chieftan) that he bought for a winter beater.


Edit: just for the record, I'm 50 years old. A geezer in comparison to most of you children.

MT as a whole seems to be like one big forum of OGs. MT doesn't tolerate the n00b **** and will either put someone in their place to the point where they shape up or GTFO....bannishment if need be as well.

If the new owners refuse to allow that crap, I might consider going back once in a while. I may not be Dr. Miata, but I've been working on cars for 40 years, and I know a lot of tricks.
I guess I am lucky in the dealings I've had with people on there that I have never been scammed/burned. But then again, I've really only dealt with known reputable people on there. Most of my dealings happen on here anyway. I've always posted stuff/bought stuff from here before anywhere else.

First post in a long time.

Anyways,I remember posting a question in the "slammed" thread( I think it was that thread)asking what was the purpose of having a car that was so low,it broke oil pans,accompanied with poor fitting wheels & rusty body panels.The majority of the repsonse's I got from the socalled experts from 06 members were " you just don't get it".

So as far as I'm concerned,it doesn't matter if you're a 06 OG member or you only been there a year,the majority of them are all retards,regardless of how long they have been on that site.

Serious props for quitting. I know it sucked for a long time. I remember the thread where you talked about it. Good for ya' for having the strength.

He does it too. I just talked somebody down here into running your spring rates because he has an NB and your 6ULs and wants to track.

It sucked losing a lot of MT folks because you weren't on that board anymore. Your posts (the serious ones) are always excellent.
And you could garner a lot more business if you spent more time over here. I've said it before. There are obviously lots of guys (several on this thread alone) that didn't know you did really professional gauge faces.

I would like to have a set that had OMG at redline on every gauge. I really would.

All the more reason with this CR going on. I have no doubt that CR will be a fraction of what it is now, depending on how you want to measure it.

I visit here daily. Often several times a day. I mostly lurk though.

I shall endeavor to lurk less.

And I could make those gauges happen.
