Mine's sitting on top of 4" of snow, I had to brush another 8" off of it this morning. We're supposed to get another foot of snow this week.

Spring break starts next Friday, so I'll get it home in our heated garage and put in my 315cc injectors. Maybe I'll find out what no traction in 5th gear is like.

both of mine are off the stands thankfully. I generally get a project done and the car back on the road as quickly as possible.

Awesome, where's the autocross at? I'll be going to the dragon this weekend on my way to Charleston, SC. Bunch of us are going that way.

Mine has been on stands for about a month or so now. Finally lowered back down last weekend. Maybe I will get to drive it this weekend.

411 dragway, same place I got my 1/8th mi time. its only about 15min from UT. There are actually 2 races on sat and sunday, first by porsche club, second by the SVT Mustang club. They're turning it into a dirt track, this will be the last autocross there. I've done it once before, was a blast.

Oh yeah and next weekend is the first ETR (local region SCCA) autox.

Man that looks awesome, I'm looking forward to trying to run a couple autocrosses at Nashville Motorspeedway (name?) later this spring.

My '91 hasn't been off the ground for anything but fluid and tire changes during the past 12K miles. Even went on a couple of runs last week. I'm a happy camper:gay:

I usually drive up on 2 2x4s and that's plenty of clearance for on the ground oil changes.

unless you've got my luck....then you're stuck at school 200 miles from your miata because it has a blown rear-diff that you can't afford to replace!!

One day I too hope to have a lift. That will require me graduating, getting a good job, and buying/building a house to my liking that will have a tall enough ceiling for one.

Edit: Just noticed there's no beer in that picture, what kind of tech day was that?
