Go troll else where buddy, perhaps go suck some **** between races so the weekend racer can do better. Either you're serious or you're really bad at sarcasm.

If you ARE serious, you might want to actually read at least one of the last 11 pages.
You got trolledddddddddddd bad. He is clearly joking, and I think did a pretty damn epic job at it. He very smoothly transitioned from maybe believable, to African scam job.

Honestly to me it seemed like the weekend racer making another account and keeping his trap shut after getting banned.

Just want to update the thread based on the performance of the SD bilsteins. Today, yesterday's tomorrow, I did an open track day in wet to downright pouring conditions. I was running old non K Azenis 615's-not the greatest wet tire but surprisingly the car stuck well. The rear never side stepped and the fronts only hydroplaned a couple times over running streams of water across the track in hard corners. My Miata has an open rear end as well.

So, they work good if you are lucky enough to get them?

Sorry, that dog don't hunt.

It's reality. It's too bad so many have had issues getting them.

Hath the paradox finally broken?

Sometime in the future will always be today at some point in time.

Actually I'm thinking "today" is such a more effective paradox. Since everyday is today eventually, your shocks COULD ship anyday, and everyday. But tomorrow never comes, it's always tomorrow today. I can see this working.

Customer: So you said yesterday my shocks would ship right?
SD: Well, I actually said they would ship today.
Customer: But that was yesterday, so they shipped yesterday right?
SD: No, I said they would ship today. Today is today.
Customer: Okay so they didn't ship? Or they did ship? I'm confused.
SD: Not sure where the miscommunication is, I never said they would ship yesterday, or tomorrow. I clearly said today. So they will ship today.
Customer: ...............................
SD: Think about it.
Customer: You win.

They must be shipping them from the north pole or something since they keep bending time. Either that or its some kind of a worm hole they found up there.

Shitty update:

My daily driver just died on the freeway (fuel pump i'm pretty sure) and if my shocks had shipped i'd have the miata to hop in and drive as a backup.

Lame!

Problem solved. Looks like the AFM came unplugged a little bit. Well that was a waste of a 60 dollar tow!

I still want my damn shocks though!

Now lets see how long it would take before you receive them... I'm guessing in 2 weeks you'll be like "hey weekend racer wheres my shockz"

....

and hes gonna say "They gonna ship tomorrow"

...

err wait i missed the "if".
