Anyone else from British Columbia?

my car has 4 nice black tires

and a matching black roof

and a black interior

I just got into autocrossing

The Miata seems very competitive.

It was the tirds fastest in the dry.

and the second fastest in the wet.

and then there were ten.

powertoweitght and boost. Welcome to the forum to both. Why don't you just fill your sig with your locations when signing in? This way we all know you're from B.C. It makes assisting you easier.

Anyways, as stated welcome to the forum and we hope to see your respective cars' pics soon.

SORRY!!!
I apologise for breaking the rules.
It's the first forum that I have been to that requires a min post count but I suppose that is to keep the forum from becoming another "buy,sell,trade" site.
I have recieved at least 2 warnings already.
In my defense,I read another thread here where someone else did the same thing.As a newb I thought that it was tollerable.
SORRY!!!



Enough of that stuff.
As an import mechanic with 20 years experience and a car enthusiast with a great love for Miatas I hope to have much to share with this community.


how do I post pics?
my two attempts failed.Max files size?

You have to upload them to a free image hosting service such as photobucket or flicker and then directly link the image here with IMG tags, you can't upload them directly to the miataturbo.net hosting unless you are a paid (supporting) member.

Dude, it even tells you on the page where you upload pics what the max file sizes are!

This tool is a good thing to have even if you don't want to pay up.

Look about halfway down the right side of this page:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...powertoys.mspx

Download IMAGE RESIZER.exe. It'll put an icon on your desktop. Install the icon. After installed, you can delete the icon. Now go to any photo-type file and RIGHT CLICK. A new selection will be RESIZE IMAGES. It doesn't simply resize the current image, it creates a new photo right next to the original only much smaller. You can resize as more than one at a time. Resolution suffers very little on a standard monitor, even in SMALL. I use it more often than any other program on my computer.

My Sony 3.2mp camera makes 1.2mb files on max setting. On MEDIUM, the resizer makes all the pics you see in my vbGarage about 100kb... perfect for uploading! Anybody with a higher MP camera can surely get away with SMALL.

IF YOU HAVE A 5+mp CAMERA, EVEN THE SMALL SETTING ON THE RESIZER MIGHT NOT GET YOUR PICS SMALL ENOUGH TO POST... SO DIAL DOWN YOUR CAMERA RESOLUTION A LITTLE, LIKE TO 3mp.

Thanks for the info.I've used the resizer on my previous computer but forgot about it.I'll try it here.If it doesn't work i'll finally have to set up an online thing.
Just more info about ourselves out there for everyone to see.

It seems to have a little blue reflect in the paint. But it must be my eyes... Too much Tig welding is killing my eyes....
