Angry OMG why am I so damned slow

Because I went back to stock yesterday. I have to smog my car, and although the smog guy is friendly, I am planning on throwing a new setup in the car when my vacation comes at the end of august. So I figured I would go back to stock for the smog, just to take the turbo kit out of the equation if I happen to fail.

Holy **** this ******* thing is slow. The first time I drove it after taking off the turbo, I was sure it was broken. Its loud as **** too. I suspect that I have acquired some exhaust leaks that were being masked by the sound dampening qualities of the turbo.

To sum it up, I HATE THIS ******* CAR RIGHT NOW. My radio died a couple of weeks ago and that was fine when the car was turbo, now I want to shoot myself in the *** every time I drive the ******.


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

**** 97 whp

Damn thing still wont chirp the tires from a standing start. Though that could be down to my weak *** drag racing technique.

Screw you both, I've been pulling a hustler, down for 2.5 months now and not boosted either.

Most of the summer with no miata, gay.

Should be getting the bitch back from paint friday finally.

The only thing driving a slow car fast has taught me is, "Anticipation"......

If you feel you are going too slow, just start turning the wheel side to side...it should give you a bit of a rush if done properly and hold you off until you make it to a real turn to tear up.

My 1.6 with the 4.10 rear end is awesomely slow. I wanted to run it with the 3.90 at stock power to really feel slow.
