Default The stupidity is running high lately on idiot.net

Where are some of these people coming from? Seriously? I don't know whats worse...the guy claiming that he has never had a car with a rev limiter and wondering why Mazda put one on the MSM but his 95 GMC truck can 'peg out' the tach, or the guy who was wondering why he has clutch shudder with a light flywheel and 6-puck clutch, or the guy who doesn't know how to get the oil filter off his NB, or the guy who said running low profile tires could result in the sidewall rolling over and scraping the rim on the ground during hard driving....

WTF people!

Maybe it is some sort of disease that spreads thru cyber space. I think we should quarantine MT.net soon, just to be sure.

A block with a few quick questions when logging in is all it would take (only one answer is right):

Putting a lot of cash on changing to a 5 lug nut pattern is a good idea because:
o It is impossible to find cool rims in the 4x100 pattern
o It will upgrade your cars JDM status and JDM is good
o It is a dumb and pointless idea

FM is the following:
o A tuning firm and a retailer
o Gods that live in the mountains
o The Lord Jesus gift to each Miata owner.

Megasquirt is what of the following:
o A cheap and well working engine management system.
o Satan’s tool to stain humankind with evil
o A box that have never and will never work on a FI-Miata

An intercooler is:
o A fuel nozzle
o A radiator looking things that helps lower intake temps
o Unnecessary, as long as you have enough power cards.

I should really be working on my project budget, but it is so much more forgiving to be creative here on the forum. Now… where did I put those missing 48K€…

look man, borla has a ******* marketing team and would never take photos in the yard. Maybe you need to learn a few things about press packets and magazine advertisements.

Yep, and there is as much arrogance on this forum as stupidity on the other forum

I hope to gain the knowledge while deflecting the arrogance

All this just cause I called him a "troll".

what the hell, he wants a loud exhaust but it should be from a huge company and shiny and dirt cheap?

after about two posts of his crap, just tell him to spend the $500 on the FM one.

kevinD

"If you read my posts, you'll see that I really don't care about the look of an exhaust if the price is right. I'm trying to do a good thing, not bad. I'm pointing out something that just isn't right. I gave the guy plenty of room to defend his product and it just doesn't seem like he can do it. Believe me, I wish he could win - if he could offer that exhaust at a better price he'd sell more of them (I'd buy one!), and he'd make more money. He uses Borla mufflers, welds on inferior piping, and then sells it for the same price of the real stainless Borla system. No one in their right mind should ever want to buy that! There's nothing wrong with me pointing that out. I have no problem with you, but you really shouldn't jump on the bandwagon without at least trying to see where I'm coming from. Have a good one."


I now have a target on M.net
