how i spent my last hour and a half at work: (putting my ME degree to good use)




This guy was so dumb i was tempted to hop into the drivers seat. I swear he has never seen snow. At one point he tried to drive his trailer over a 4 foot snow bank and had it well past a 45 degree angle. I thought it was gunna flip.

I saw an even worse big rig stuck on the offramp of rt 9 in middletown right at the church. Really guys? HOW do you get CDL's

this snow is pissing me off, i cant wait to get to Guam then Hawaii next year. No snow just a lot of rain. whats nice is since my car wont be sold the navy is going to pay for me to drive it home then ship it to Guam. Plus my tax return is going to be enough for my to get my car dynoed and tuned properly so it will run normally. Any one know a dyno shop that will tune mega squirt?

No ****! I am running out of room to put this ****!

Sneaky, when are you going to guam? When you get there/hawaii change your plates to local plates asap. I know when I got to hawaii and still had ct plates I had bottles thrown at me on the hwy. Once I got hawaii plates it was all good though.

I have to be in guam the 28th of feb. Im changing my plates as soon as i get my car there. From what i understand the navy is going to pay me to drive home then i have to handle my flight from va beach to guam since the tickets the navy will hand me will be from groton to guam. If they do pay me ill be looking a a good chunk of change to drive home with and new stuff for the miata. maybe the fastback top and wide body from autokenixion, but thats only if they do pay me which they should, i did my travel brief yesterday and the guy said i would have two days to drive and 16.50 per mile on my car.

I just got in after 5 hours on the roof in snow up to my god damn knees!! If it was just snow it wouldn't have been too bad, but because it was everything we've got so far it was a ******* nightmare! Snow on top of ice on top of snow on top of ice. Once the snow was off I spent another half hour with a hammer and chisel working on the frozen gutters. I'm 100% exhausted.

Yeah, I need to put some work in on my roofs also. I was thinking it would be interesting to see how strong they were/are but I don't think I want to push my luck.

Vash, do you have a bigger pic of your sig somewhere on the interwebzzz?

Dentsport tuned my car (i'm running megasquirt as well). But of a hike for you, but well worth it IMO. Their tuner Matt knows what's up.

Yeah thats exactly what I was thinking. I wasn't about to push it with these 2 storms on the way. I also have a roof rake on order so from here on out I shouldn't have to actually go up on the roof to clean it. ******* snow. lol

Me -> "I know that. is that something you guys can handle there"
ted -> "well obviously this is the performance shop after all" (in a very smug and sarcastic tone)
Me -> "ok thanks a lot bye"....after hanging up the phone "**** you *****"

I had a good experience with Ted, but that was like 4 years ago. I had him tune my Greddy turbo and Emanage setup. I gained quite a bit from the tune and the drive home had me smiling ear to ear.

He was definitely a "harsh" kind of guy, but I work with guys like that all the time so I'm used to it. By the end of the session I'd say we got along pretty well and he even gave me a little tour of the shop. His kid was there too and made sure I checked out his MR2 project that had about triple the money into it than my miata did at the time.

Honestly, I'd go somewhere else. Not because Ted is a dick on the phone, but because there's more experienced tuners out there. They are the shop to go to if you have a chevelle or mustang.....not a faggy miata. lol

This is my plot from back then.
