So pissed.

A ------ in a dually changed lanes in a curve, and nosed me into the curve. I'm so pissed.

Anyone have front passenger-side control arms? Hopefully my shock is not bent. I can't get it out, so I don't know yet.

Paying attention is awesome. I recommend everyone try it. I need to learn to let people hit me. Its kinda scary though when your head is next to the top of a tire.

And you didn't think to get his plate number? I temporarily memorize everyone's plate number if they're in the adjacent lane. Too many time have people done stupid **** around me. Especially considering driving a Miata in Southern California is akin to a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Too many dumb ***** in giant SUV's they can barely drive thinking those sparkly things on the side of their vehicle is for decoration and the one inside is to do their make up.

50mph speed limit mean swe were going about 65, so by the time I got the car back on 4 wheels, he was out of sight.

Since I now have to replace **** and get it aligned, I'm just going to throw the complete rear subframe and lsd in with the 01 rear brakes, after i plug in the torsen and get it adjusted.

I'm really, really ******* happy I didn't buy those 6UL's now. I would be out of control pissed. i bet the 94whp motor is going to be bad *** with my 3.90 R&P.

speaking of horns, i need to hook up the button on my new steering wheel. Funny thing, I never use my horn, never needed to really in blacksburg. Ever since I put on the new wheel there have been numerous times when ive wanted to honk the horn.

The Hella Supertones or those PIAA horns are pretty loud. I need to get my horn working as well, I've been hornless since last year when I installed the wheel... and it makes my nervous huge (net joke).

The parts group could probably get you a good deal on the contro arms, if you don't have them already.
