i have a bunch of stuff that won't be on my car, like my race seat and harness, some endlinks, and my new hardtop won't be here in time. i'm gonna be rocki'n a factory seat and a cg lock! lol.... well that sucks. what about the last tws open track day at the end of the month. i think it's the 23rd? i might go back up for that just to get some dry lap times, if i don't get any this fri.
Thanks for the offer of help. The other problem is I have a lot to get done at work this week. We are going after some large proposals and I am one of the key players. So working on the car in the evenings this week or even taking Friday off is out for the most part.

The one on the 23rd is a possibility. I'll keep it as a maybe for now though.

Bad karma BTW to bitch about the rain. We NEED every bit of it so all you rain haters STFU

That was me. The conditions were too treacherous for me to watch, when I could be eating fried chicken and drinkin vintage Veuve...and I'm not joking, lol. I managed to not get stuck either.

It was pretty cool to drive the miata down the street, through the mud, and all over town in that crappy weather. Its like a Ferrari substitute. Hopefully you didn't see the big 3-rd gear drift leaving the track, you might not respect me as an adult then. I had to get all that mud off though, lol.

Take out the passenger seat and fit three in there. The fourth goes in the trunk.

With an NB Miata, a 225/45-15 (shaved or worn down) will fit with the trunk closed.
