You better pray to whatever god you've chosen that when I get back to Dallas I don't crush your ******* skull. I've been free fighting chinamen here in Bangkok for the last 6-munce and it will take nothing short of a god damn disney-miracle to keep my shin from crushing your trachea if you EVER direct the "loser" smiley at me again.

anyone make an observation or two at the miata challenge? I'm still looking at tein monoflex and FCM. I think Robispec may be a little more expensive than I want to get into, and tough to replace if I wreck it...but still on the table.

emilio says they twins are better at the rates I wanted, and I only paid $1300 for what I scored off my buddy's new-ish track car. Its hard to argue with that price.

Nah, I think William bought John's ****. I bought Gary's old set. I couldn't pass up that price. If there isn't enough valve, I send them in for revalving. I wanted quick and easy, plus it saved me about $800 over doing mono w/springs.

I'm all about this new goal of actually getting on the track, rather than engineering. Making it through a track day without popping the motor is my new goal.

I haven't been on the track in almost two years. I want to run [email protected], Miatas at Hallett, and maybe one more event over the summer. I hope I can get my ducks in a row in time.

Good call for grabbing the deal. Keep us posted on how you like your new setup on the track. What exactly do you run now?

I think I will grow out of my current GC 375f/250r with COTS Bilstein B6s. I think I will run out spring rate with my R888s on the track and that will put me towards a revalve I think.
