Default Been around, just signed up.

I read the stickies at the top. I normally never do this since Iíve been a part of the tuning car community for over 16 years. Thatís right, I was around when you could flame people and it was considered cool. Back when the internet was like the Wild West. Thatís actually one reason Iíve joined up here. Most folks here are hilarious. You guys keep me in constant stitches! I joined over on miata.net months ago. I donít think Iím going back there... itís like a 2jz forum.

I knew id fit in here as soon as I read the ďnoobs first postĒ sticky. And I quote:
Everybody:
"Hey Sam, go kill yourself now"
"Hey Sam, you're a stupid noob ***"
"Hey Sam, have you ever heard of the ******* search button... why don't you go **** yourself"
"Hey Sam, is english your 8th language or are you missing a chromosome?"
"Hey Sam, GOOGLE, do you speak it ************!"

Too damn funny. And way too real.

Anyways, Iím new to the Miata game, but have been tuning and racing since age 16. Technically been racing since I was 12. Iíve owned over 38 cars. The Miata (named Kinzy) is number 38. Iíve had RB swapped s13ís, swapped civics, swapped ae86. My latest was a 1uzfe swapped celica with a Ford 8.8 conversion. I do all my own work and am a wiring tech by trade. Should be fun times asking questions here. Donít hesitate to insult, correct, or emasculate me. Iíve heard it all. Lol.

Oh yeah, Iíve got three cats. So can I get a head start on my cats meter?

When I first got her.


This is when I took possession. Yikes. It was a fanboys dream in here. I’ve done some redecorating since.

Plastip can be shiny.

Miatas are not a game.

Welcome to the forum. Plans to do any track days?

Nice cats.

2jz forum sounds like cancer. Agree to everything Six says. Also you've been awarded cats for cats

oh, you would LOVE a 2jz forum... itís something all of us should experience. Youíll walk away with greater appreciation of any other forum out there, but youíll also walk away with lost hope in humankind. Double edge sword.

Nice cats.
I have plans for track days, but they are far off. Right now itís getting the car back into fighting shape after the POís damage. Basically, it was setup for drifting, but never ďdriftedĒ. Yet had a massive dent by the fuel filler, a hydro, slammed eBay coilovers (slammed so much it couldnít turn without rubbing in front!), no cat, straight piped. CBR1000 COP conversion (with wiring I had to correct and tidy), a hacked crossover tube, an alignment that was the WORST, and the list goes on. Iíve recovered the seats, fixed numerous broken interior parts. Itís now to the point where I can begin doing autocross on the cheap TW440 tires.

is300 owner here and this is accurate. Always a grand time sifting through the "what oil do you all use" or "which coilovers are best" posts to find actual good information, not to mention my.is these days is 80% ads, some of which are borderline NSFW.. Mt.net is a national ******* treasure by comparison.

lmao. So true. My old celica forum had ads regularly for ďAsian womenĒ. My wife (who isnít Asian, and knows Iím not into Asian chicks) walked by one day, saw the ad on my iPad, and said ďlooks like the internet doesnít know you at all.Ē Best guess I have is that ďtheyĒ couldnít figure me out, and decided, 1) this must be a man. 2) he likes Asian cars. 3) letís stereotype him.
