Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Hey, just got around to watching the vid and realized it’s at the ridge, my local track (somehow missed the part where you wrote that the first time I read this post). I’m always surprised how much non regulars like the track... of the 4 tracks in the area I’d rate this one 3rd best...  I also wouldn’t call it easy on brakes, it’s not particularly hard on brakes either, I just would call out easy on brakes as one of its features.   the track is killer on your front right tire tho...

 

any by chance you know what kinda laptimes the owner runs there? The guy in the vid was obviously taking it easy, so not really curious about his laptimes 

 

Not sure on the Lotus, but his radical has done a 1:42

I left the fender flairs out of the order ;). Sadly it's 280euro (over 300 us) to ship the thing to the US, but all of the good rear bumper diffuser replacements are in the EU, so all of the shipping costs were similar.

I hope you insured the shipment, maybe I'm paranoid but I would worry about a package that size and that fragile making the journey without damage. 

 

You better post pics when you get it on the car! :D

Welp, update on the Audi. Turns out there were 2 o-rings.... Got it replaced and topped up today though. 

Also noticed a vaccume hose had a tear in it. Might explain why the turbo felt weird this last week....

thats cheating... :D 

 

a friend of mine has a stockish Viper who's goal is a 42 which would make him the fastest door slammer... or at least that we can find vids of...  there are a bunch of GT3's and GT2's that go that never post up their vids so we're not sure how fast they run.  his current best is a 44.

 

and I'm struggling in the 2's... current best is a 2:01 :( 

same viper guy did a 1:58 on a very similar setup on his NC... but he did have stickier tires... so thats my excuse... also he's been tracking and racing a lot longer than I have :D

Awd+Audi+Wagon is looove. And the 2.7tt ;)

sadly 99% of the time it never worked ... so the cars always looked slammed and its overly expensive to fix ... 

a set of good coil overs cost less than the rear air suspension on them things ... hell, you could get a whole new car for a set of the air suspension

Well unfortunately the motor currently in the Miata is not doing so hot, blew the head gasket (in that case it is doing hot, pun intended). I'm pretty sure it blew when I first got the car, one of the little bypass hoses split open and leaked all the coolant out before I even got home, only time it's ever overheated. Fixed the leaks and have been driving it for almost a year, but it's starting to get pretty bad, spark plugs are getting fouled up, losing oil and coolant; if it wasn't running on borrowed time before it certainly is now.

 

Luckily I got a head set and timing belt for less than $50, machine shop will deck the head for $40 so I figure why not if I'm into the job less than $100. There's other problems with the motor but the head gasket is pretty much the main issue right now. Certainly gives me more time to finish the built turbo motor which is all I really need.

the heads on these cars warp really easily as the temp gauge stays in the default position till 227F. (it's uber important as soon as you see that thing move a millimeter from normal to turn the car off asap) so def get it checked and hopefully all it needs is to be decked.

I was wondering why there were no 4 door convertibles, then saw this picture and realized why. Bet it handles great with a nice stiff chassis...

rust is your biggest issue. Miata's are fun.. but they have rust problems.. really a car you should keep away from the salt as much as you can.

 

It's really much better as spring/summer/fall weekend car. that's where you'll enjoy it the most.
