Yes it is! I knew I should have never trusted my Megahellastylin hat to anyone else. Its awesomeness will turn even the most ethical of people into a hat pirate.

Bring it to TWS if you would. I will try to live without it in the mean time

Actually, I'm pretty sure the Megahellstylin awesomeness riding in the trunk took at least a full second off my lap times. Just imagine if I strapped it to the "outside" of the trunk ala areo. It would slay the compettion like carrying the Ark in front of my army.

I'll turn it over to it's rightfull owner at tws. It should command a hefty ransom...

SA

BTW, It's Thomas' NC thats for sale, not Qwans. Still an awesome car at an awesome price. Interested parties can check it out at dfwmiatas.com

I still feel like I'm not driving my car by its *****, the way I drove it before I had all the fancy crap in the car. I think I'm still afraid of the car...there is definitely a lot more grip than there was before. A few more shitty results like this and I'm going to stop going bedcause its stressing me out way too much. I'm not tryin to blame my poor performance on my brakes, but I'm starting to wonder how much faster I could go if I expected the brakes to work rather than to continue breaking brakes. I'm 0-3 on brakes this year.


Thoughts?

I'm not sure what kind of brakes you're running, but in my experience with Miatas I've never come across a situation that the stock system couldn't handle, once given track pads and fluid. The brakes, for me, are a "file and forget" system using as much stock equipment as possible.

that's what i'm saying. he's the only person i know with brake problems on a miata. braking too lightly, too early maybe? just unlucky the last 3 times, all happened to be bad parts/equipment?

i think it's self induced pressure to beat the spec miata lap record. especially since he's in unlimited. honestly trey, your just not that level of driver yet. most of us aren't. you also gotta remember that the lap record has been put down by one of the best miata driver's around in whatever part of the country your in. it wasn't a back marker that set it. but we're getting there, which is the whole point of this challenge. look at this way, it just leaves more room for improvement over the course of the year.

Hell my times were just down right embarasing, but you know what I'm still really new at this and throughout the whole day I had a blast and I could see my times going down drastically and thats all I look for.

Its all good. There is always someone faster. The point is to have fun, improve your skill, and get mo bitchez.

The last point seems to be the hardest as all the motor racing I have participated in so far is usually a sausagefest. Maybe I should be doing da drifingz and all F&F ricer and shizzle yo.
