Best Autocross Finish to Date

Best Autocross Finish to Date

I had a really great day at autocross yesterday where I was fast right off the bat, and got faster all day. I managed a 5th place out of a field of 54 cars, and 3rd out of the street tire cars. So, I figured I’d share some pictures of my Miata and the 4 cars/drivers who outran me.

5th (me) - #76 STS - 1991 Mazda Miata - 50.425

Me with a little oppo dialed in, my car is set up very very loose and...

Unfortunately, no Scouts (get it). Also, I found a thing in a basement.

Such mystery, what could it be?

England, Germany, USA, and Mexico (and USA again)

I found this in a basement, the contents weren’t terribly exciting.

I quite like the R33, it’s the last really good looking Skyline. That’s not the unpopular opinion.

What is up with the FP share. I’m getting tired of this “people are out to get car guys” mentality that seems to be showing up around here an awful lot. I think the comment below sums up my thoughts pretty well.

Anyway, I’d drive an R30-R33 Skyline but, I could care less...

Giving Up For the Night

This happened a few weeks ago, I got time to fix it today... or to try. It has not gone well.

Lurked on the LS1tech forum and found out my one headlight up, one down issue isn’t new. Apparently Cardone (who rebuilds the motors) frequently wires them backwards when they rebuild them.

Is that infuriating? Yes.

Is their QC a drunk...

Boss’s Tercel is undergoing some maintenance:

Also, (terrible) things I saw today:

A K-car driven by someone with more dollars than sense. (note tiny flag)

And a raggedy Mustang with more tape than bumper. (those lower stripes are all tape)

I helped design and make these. I think they’re gorgeous.

Charred cedar steps, weathered steel, and a galvanized handrail. We finished installing them today.

20B-REW 3-rotor, the want is strong.

Unfortunately, all are 4-speed automatics, but I don’t care.

The interior is almost concept car like:

The only drawback on this particular one, a somewhat tragic set of Lowenhart wheels.

To Photoshop! Enkei RS05RR to the rescue.

“Please limit your portfolio to 5mb”

Took me all morning, and I had to throw out 3 of 5 projects and cut down the other 2. And... the images are all 75 dpi now.

I don’t mind limits, 15mb would be completely reasonable, 10mb easily doable, but 5mb? I have single images that are bigger than that!

Have a very nice 911 for your time.

I’ve gotta get up early to send out job applications.

I did this today

Not a bad day, and my first time running a manual lathe. I’ve become quite the amateur machinist.

It's Time!

We’re going to test drive cars, specifically Ford Fusions. Hopefully we’ll have a Five Hundred replacement picked out soon.

Mmmm... Bronze fire metallic (it looks much better in person)

When You Leave Your Car Places

You have to go get it.

Now I have to walk 20 minutes to wait on a van-bus. Then ride the van-bus 20 minutes to APDwest to get my car. Then drive 20 minutes back to my apartment. All because yesterday morning I decided that my whole group driving to town separately was pointless and carpooling in my buddy’s Charger.

Also, my phone and wallet are in my car. So the whole day trip to KC and back in...
