The Fastest Car In The World

What a lovely day in Texas, unfortunately it didn’t rain which might have given me an advantage considering I brought a boat. It was a fun day though learning the wonders of undefeatable stability control and terminal understeer. I am slightly kidding since it was a very enjoyable day. I like the challenge of something I am not used to and getting the chance to have more seat time chasing cones. We got 12 runs (6 on each course) so it was a long day. It was an interesting setup with two courses running parallel to each other in an attempted mirror of one another. I ran 2 full seconds different between the two though so clearly something was different to me. Some people ran about the same but most had a similar offset to me. I did not really beat too many people but such is expected with the flawless track weapon that I brought. I had fun though and that is all that counts. I had the most trouble with the christmas tree, drag racing start. Since stepping on the gas and the car actually moving was most of the delay. This lead to 1+ seconds of “reaction time” every time. When I know for sure that as long as my Miata found traction that would not happen.

Here is a video of the courses since youtube brings the wonders of laziness so that I dont have to bother ever bringing a camera:

Being 1500 miles away from my Miata is difficult but at least this Malibu got to be a Miata in spirit for a day.

I've been bamboozled! I've been bamboozled!

I’ve just learned a pretty shitty thing about my Miata. So the previous owner purchased an LS trim Miata with a Limited Slip Differential in 2001. As the original owner, he fastidiously kept track of all maintenance and had a shop do every repair. Well part of that maintenance included replacing the differential in 2016, which would have put...

Rented a Bird Rented a Bird

Bird scooters, also known as a recent scourge to modern society, are marketed as a solution to the “last mile” problem that is all too common in American public transit systems. I had to drop off my Miata at the shop to solve my leaking diff problem so I decided to rent a Bird on my way home. I...

Injector Cleaning Services? Injector Cleaning Services?

I just pulled the fuel injectors out of my old Miata (yay parts car) so that they can be sent off for cleaning/rebuilding and then installed into my other Miata when convenient. Hopefully that can solve my misfire code once and for all and perhaps even improve my fuel economy. Pretty sure the injectors worked fine on the old...

Have started playing a new game Have started playing a new game

I’ve got an ultimate Frisbee tournament tomorrow and the day off work today. So I wanted to make sure I was well rested. Normally I’d go hiking or surfing or work on a car but vegging out and playing a game sounded like appropriate rest. Well I decided to pick up quite the difficult one from Gamestop! Side note,...
