I have literally dozens of local friends that I've helped with banning issues. They thank me constantly.

Actually, since it's no secret this guy like to collect data. I would find it very useful if he could start a thread discussing different ways to collect and analyze data on a Miata for various aspects. Whether it's specific equipment involved, software, what could a guy being cheap do, how to use this data after it's collected, etc... Having this knowledge and then what to do with that knowledge would help benefit myself.

Looks like you need more rear brake bias.

I noticed that you have what appears to be Mark Donohue as your sig picture.

If so, and if sincere, then that's very ironic given your ridiculing, condescending, and juvenile tone. Since Mark was quite the dataman, and this was a big part of his racing success. He was an Engineer and tested endlessly.

He wrote a book with Racecar Engineer Paul Van Volkenburg called "The Unfair Advantage". It covered his races along with all the testing and effort that went into trying to find such an advantage for each event.

If you were racing against him with your present attitude, you'd be able to congratulate his victories after each race. Or, if you were flexible enough to consider new ideas and to change, then you could improve your results by doing more of what he did and others do today.

For the interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Donohue

What's amazing is that you continue to believe, against all evidence, that your detractors have a problem with the collection and analysis of information, rather than simply not liking your attitude.




EDIT:

If the best you've got is a jab insinuating that I'd likely lose to Mark Donohue in a race, I think I can live with that.
