No seriously, you take time to write your posts in geometric shapes, but you can't figure out how to use the quote button?

I just cut and pasted. Could have multiquoted. But…the text I C&Ped had text attributed to me…but altered by the forum moderator (just read it)…on some forum software that preserves what was posted…so I thought I'd do it that way.

I can see why this site has so little actual knowledge on it. It seems to be a fanboy ricer site.

I frequent this forum because of the high standard of knowledge that resides on here (Jason, Joe Perez, Abe, Savington to name a few high profile members). You are very much in the minority in thinking this is a poor site knowledge wise.

And fanboy ricer site? you have to be frigging joking, this is almost the antithesis of a riceboy site

Is this a ricer site…no knowledge, just forum games?

It's like that guy wrote me, apparently.

Even your feeble retorts follow the same pattern - "if I say it over and over again, it will become true in their minds too!"

i gotta give it up for hustler. just when i thought u couldn't top the previous post u is even funnier. :kowtow: x 10000 in your general direction sir.

sjmarcy, ok i'll bite. i have stock 1.8 brake hardware and in autox i lock up rf. i was thinking of cross drilling my front rotors to save weight, and i figured i would go ahead and add a 10% left bias. since area varies with square of diameter, i was figuring just a tiny bit bigger holes on the right rotor than the left. i was also thinking of using a masonry bit which i sharpen to a razor edge with a diamond wheel so it goes through the mild steel like butta.

interested in your analysis

to OP. sticky piston? i'm sure other folks here have better diag than this, but the first thing that i thought of was to substitute piece of wood for your pads on both sides. step on pedal real hard, and then inspect. if sticky piston on driver side, then it should show up in the piston imprint on the wood.

if this is dumb then please ignore

You might want to go back and read his previous posts. Marcy can't provide true analysis unless you physically come inside him.

It's all about the brake balance - and nothing more

http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=383339

JasonB - that's the first simple thing that should be checked...but we all now know you have to put in prop valve to fix a sticky slider.

Sjmarcy and Datalogs: A Retrospective...

^^^ actually, thats not true. the real sjmarcy is a tray drifter in the TD1 series, where the real ricers hang out

EDIT: my 100th post is a tray drifting video. god i need to step away from the keyboard before i hurt myself
