Default NorCal n00b saying hi

Hey, miataturbo.net. I picked up a 1990 Miata this past summer as a project/track car. At first I just wanted to keep it stock with some suspension mods but it's pretty damn slow and I want to turbo it within the next year. I'm no stranger to turbos as I have an Evo VIII and learned most of my turbo knowledge piecing together a T25 turbo kit for my old 200sx se-r.

Welcome. How's the driving up there? I can't stand it here(Florida) sometimes. I have to migrate to Cali.

Kinda crappy 'cause the roads are cold, it's raining, my Evo is down for a while, and my Miata has blown shocks. LOL not much driving going on at the moment. :(

It's about half an hour from Vacaville if there's no traffic at all. It's right by the Benicia bridge. I remember the freeway around Vacaville being really shitty in my old SE-R with suspension.

So the driving is shitty? Oh hell nah! It must be further south. I don't give a damn I just want your raceways.

LOL no I meant personally for me 'cause I can't really play around at the moment with either of my cars.

That road rattled my miata so bad that I almost lost my caliper bolt...
