If you had just put it on CL, it's like 99% likely someone would have linked it and this would have gone differently. We just don't like people coming here, putting up a few useless posts, and then selling/buying ****. I don't care if you are the ******* President, its just bad form.

So, now you look like a douche for being a ***** about it when people called you out and not just maning up.

Your signature says enough for me to not even give this car a second look.

Wow, so much gheyness. Thanks flipside.com, for ruining my idea to make a bad *** cressida. Now every ****** is going to walk up to me and ask if it is set up for drift. ****** 240 guys do that anyways to my car. I love the look on their face when I tell them I have no rear sway bar, and drifting is for crotch cannibals. What the **** is that red *** car at the top of the flipside site? Only the bottom half? Worst pic ever.

In for ban of this jive turkey too. ------>catonakeyboardinspace

No I don't. Manning up to what? Are people really trying to get me pissed off to see me nerdrage or something? Not going to happen.

I actually came in here to post that.

I wonder if the 'builder' put more effort into this car than some of his other endeavors.

Tough crowd.... again, you have to at least acknowledge his honesty. Most spam up old threads while he's keeping within these confines.

As far as "have you ever dragged race"- I don't know you, but its safe to say I've spent more time at the drag strip and around drag cars then you ever will. The screens are fine for engines that will be pulled apart after 2-3 runs if they even make that many before venting the block. For bracket racers or guys who run anything short of funny cars or pro mod, you'll see a filter on their car, and most will make more power then 3-4 of our turbo engines combined. A 450rwhp LS1 needs a filter just a little bigger then the size of your fist IIRC.

The compressor wheel filters most everything out....right?

OP, at 88% duty cycle, you need bigger injectors.

Hey OP I'm going to come to your house and say "listen I'm not going to beat around the bush or be pretentious: I'm going to **** your wife". Then proceed to sodomize her.

At least I'm honest right?

I have definitely never been to a drag strip where the track was made out of cardboard.

The air restriction that the chicken wire puts on the intake is probably far greater than a normal filter simply because of the airflow properties of the wire, combine that with the fact that the ability to filter fine particles out of the air is significantly reduced, and you have a win/win fail/fail situation!

edit- I would like to be banned. ^_^

I didnt see this post until chicksdig quoted it... and since it referred to a post that referred to mine, I'll take it as directed at me.

This isn't a for sale thread. The guy wasn't warned or banned. He was allowed to continue posting to reach his post limit so he could post in the classifieds (where crapping doesn't happen).

What gets me more annoyed with you though is the passive aggressive name-calling and criticism of how things allegedly go down here. If you have a problem with the site or the people who volunteer their time to moderate it, you have a couple ways to handle the situation:

1. be an offensive whiner in response to a tangentially related post in some random thread.

2. send a message to a mod, admin, or the site owner and tell them how you feel.

lol. funny stuff. all of it. Anyway... You dont know me or my relationship with the miata community up here in the Northwest. I dont really care what you guys think of me personally. Its the cars that people come to talk about here.

My car is built right. The fabrication is sick. most of the custom stuff is one-offs like the cro mo roll bar with race bar attachment, Full diff kit, the RX7 up-rights re-machined for 4x100, the lightened Drive-shaft made just for my application, the turbo manifold and the full exhaust.

I mean who gives a **** if the car runs low 12s on street tires if the paint is gay? right? ******* ********.

We already have to deal with the fact that we drive Miatas. A gay paint scheme is insult to injury. Check out the rides on this site and you'll know - WE GIVE A **** WHAT OUR CARS LOOK LIKE. Whoever buys this car is going to have to sand that **** off, reprimer, and repaint the car. That paint scheme has devauled the car by $7k to $10k.
