Default What am I doing here?

I have been lurking here for a while, enjoying the site. Quite an ecletic collection of turbo fans, fabricators, nuts, idiots, haters, etc. Enough about you and some about me:
Some Turbo cars in past, some mild advisory work for Supra Turbo project and '73 Beetle restoration, decent wrenching ability. Engineering background (I believe I may have been the first one to suggest flanged instead of bolted joint for tracked turbo cars on m.net when folks moved hardware from elastic to plastic region, due to aerospace experience). Owned some muscle cars and did some street racing with some success (money-wise more than ladies-wise).
Been in Miata for a few years, 1 year in AutoX and did some Rally in past and most recently in my OTM. Currently I play with Hybrid propulsion systems and soon Fuel Cell stuff. My best rotary resource is my current boss who designed lots of cool **** for military special projects. My claim to fame is RPV design and fabrication followed by successful flight testing.

Welcome, It seems like you've done a little of everything when it comes to cars.

I little is correct. Thanks. I did the FCM suspension top hats and all the bushings. Next weekend I plan on doing the motor-mounts and the following the diff. mounts. Also have another diff to try (pumpkin contents so some alignment work required) but waiting to order a gear-set. And seats (Lotus Probax or Tillets if I find enough coin).
