How badass is that coolant spacer? I sent my buddy up at RIT a drawing and he built it for me. I get it next week!

Maybe, I need to see how much progress I make this week but if all goes well the drivetrain should be going back in and an extra helping hand would surely be welcomed!

Well seeing how the machinist/balancer lost my circlips the engine will not be going in until wednesday at the earliest (that's when the new clips arrive). If you still wanted to come by and critique my mess I should be putting in the crank and arp hardware.

It stopped snowing here about an hour ago, but this morning it was coming down like crazy.

I'm just happy to have the miata inside now, even though winter is over.

GF is trying to get me to move to RI with her. It looks like Lime Rock is the closest track, NJMP is next. Thoughts? I have a feeling I'm going to hate it up there.

Some people hate it, some people love it. Winter sucks dick, summer doesn't get Texas hot and spring/fall are probably the best times of the year.

Although I hate the winter I put up with it because the change of scenery is nice. I think I'd get bored without seasons.

There are pro's and cons to coming up here.

Pros: Fun windy back roads, close to NY and Boston, spring/summer/fall, ri has some nice beaches, mt members up here are awesome, there are red necks and lots of guns

Cons: Winter (but can be a pro if you like to drive sideways all the time in anything), prices for things are higher (land/houses/fuel/taxes), if you and your lady don't work out you'll probably loathe it up here on principal, some people are reeeeally pretentious up here

I think everybody should get far away from mothers tit for at least a year, so if you haven't this would be a good opportunity to do so and spread your hustleaids.
