Yeah, I was tuning once and right at the time that my system was basically maxing the intake pressure, thats when I lost my floor pan (part of it anyway) pretty exciting. This happened right in front of a local drive-through and man were the ladies impressed!

no no your right im thinking of heel toeing, double clutching in the classic sense is no longer practical because of the short gear ratios especially in the new cars those types of shifting that essentially short cut the system don't really give you much of an advantage.

Yeah. It was crazy. But I lost the race and the car as a result of that, but in the end I did get the respect, though not the girl. I ended up getting into Skylines for awhile after that. Then everything is a blur.


Goodnight everybody! But dont worry, this thread will be here all week!

hahaha wow pink slip racing hard core man.

what i do is heal toe (rev match) into 3rd and then rev match into 2nd gear as im coming out of the turn and im about to start accelerating this has to be done fast and its dangerous because if you mess it up, you will throw your back end however if successfully done i allow my turbo to spool up even before i want to accelerate = super acceleration.

so it's true that you can mod the hydra's processor like the old AMD chips by just using one of those conductive pens and it boosts hp by, like, 20?

it brings your hp up by this formula:

hp gain = number of stickers * 5

Dude, seriously, what the **** are you talking about? I'm speaking in generalities.

You dig up a 9 month old thread to say absolutely nothing. The rest of your posts seem to be trying to educate us somehow on your own personal take of the automotive world... and you're doing it badly. Your spelling and punctuation are atrocious to the point of being difficult to read. You've made some prEtty remarkable claims, like "personal tweaks to the computer system". We've got some no-****-******* computer geniuses in the house here, and nobody has come up with any good reason to hack the factory computer, and it's tough to come up with a reason anybody would mess with the Hydra internally.

The impression you're leaving us with is that you're a troll. A troll is somebody simply seeking attention, which you're getting. Deep down inside, a troll really does want to belong and learn about whatever the subject at hand is, but is emotionally and socially immature, so he says things and behaves in a way that can only be described as a complete and utter douchebag.

So, I will be clear. You appear to be a ignorant baggert. This forum does not take well to people who have nothing productive to offer, which you so far have not.

I suggest you visit the Meet&Greet forum, create a well thought-out thread with good grammar. Write it up in Word and use the spell-checker then cut&paste into the thread. Tell us about yourself from the standpoint of what you have to offer the forum... again, without sounding like a bragging douchebag. Post some pictures of your car and your girlfriend (or your Mom or sister in a pinch), post a few datalogs from your Hydra so we can see how somebody makes 280whp @12psi. Post your dyno charts as evidence. Tell us about your car and what you've done to it. Tell us about your driving experience and how you're qualified to wax poetic on the world automotive condition. Make us feel like we want you here.

You do not need to respond to this post. We would think more highly of you if you did not. There is nothing you do in this thread that will do your reputation any good. Click on the "Back" key, select the Meet&Greet forum, and start over there. You might actually PM a moderator and ask him to delete all the posts in this thread from where you started so there's no evidence of your horrible beginnings here.

Get a new user name and try again. You fucked up this one and will always be remembered for your idiocracy.

yea its possible mod the hydra.
... listen Samnavy, i understand that you may have problems with the way i opened this thread, i am sorry, i got connected to it through Youtube, i thought it was an interesting video so i commented on it. Honestly if you don't believe me about my car or my mechanical skills, that's your problem. Obviously i could be lying, so could anyone. But why would i waist my time, i go to MIT i have much better things to do than argue with you about my honesty or knowledge. last but not least, i have gotten a lot of criticism since the time i joined concerning my spelling as well as being a newb etc. fine, i can handle it, i just wanted to strike up a conversation about my hobby with a few other enthusiasts, maybe learn something. So far you have demonstrated the most narcissistic point of view. Instead of adding anything to the conversation, or educating us on something you simply write a very long letter telling me to go **** myself... Ok that's fine as well but don't expect me to sit here and be intimidated by you. No i am not going to leave i will continue being friendly and try to have conversations with people who share my passion. Unlike you, i will not stoop so low as to call people douche bags, be unnecessarily rude or judgmental. Please if you have something of value to add to the thread, maybe a story or some new mod you discovered i am sure we would all enjoy reading about it.

I'm not bullying you. I'm simply telling you to get the **** out. You are beyond retarded or a troll. Either way you are full of fail.

dude maybe its time to realize that the people who are ragging on you in this thread are not your freinds and that there pov is similiar to 90% of us. Yeah your car is a nice lil ride and does well for it self but dont expect everyone to sweat your nutz becouse of it. So the way i see it you have 3 choices
1 start over with a different attitude and alil more research about this site and how we interact.
2. continue on oblivius to your suroundings
or
3. leave this site and all memory of it behind with the memorys of your childhood abuse at the hands of some old man in an icecream truck.

Think about the advice i have just given you it will make your stay here a whole lot nicer.

omg! dude i thought you were playing along. these other posts of people "adding" something? they're just making fun of you and you STILL DON'T GET IT! instead you're trying to make sense of their statements with retardo statements of your own. only you're serious! lol... how convienient that your car is far away at a parents garage. and you don't have any pics, don't worry, you've got plenty of time to find someone else's car and post pics of it. tell the truth, you're 14 and love cars but have never had any friends. luckily the computer is there for you to "connect" with humans besides your immediate family. and that's okay. but to make up bullshit so people think your cool is not. that's *** poseur **** and your lucky some other people haven't found this thread yet, cuz they will make your butt bleed. and sure, it's just the intrawebs right? keep lying and feel the ban. if you even care. i'm sure you don't even have a miata so it's no big deal right?

btw: your dyno results are pure **** pulled from your thin tight ***. there is a way that you could make the power you speak of, but instead of stating how (because you don't have a miata and don't know **** about turbo's) you chose to claim that you modded the "chips" in your ecu? and not an oem ecu, but a hydra no less! the only chips you modded are in the cookie you just dunked in the glass of milk your moms just brought you before bed time.
