    Default Whaddid I miss?

    I can't remember the last time I posted. Stuff went screwy sometime around August.

    Took a short-term contract, sent to China twice, Miata blew up, still haven't resolved the issue, sold the e30 for stupid money, bought another Bimmer for a daily driver, still in Atlanta, haven't driven my own car at the track since April. Feels like I just came up for air after being forced under for a loooong time.

    The Miata has been practically rebuilt; rebuilt engine, new front (main) wiring harness, new transmission, new clutch, new fuel system (everything from the tank forward), new cooling system, new stock ECU, new sensors, still barely idles and only with the CAS at full advance.

    Sold the e30 for over double what I paid for. Through the graciousness of friends here, I was able to borrow a car for month with the Miata down. Found an '05 325it with a manual this week, a bit of a unicorn. One owner, female, full maintenance history, only 81k on it. I still don't know how my wife agreed to this car, but she's jealous of it despite it being slower than her IS300 Sportcross.

    Been to the point of nearly parting out/selling the Miata a few times over the past 8 weeks. Starting and stopping the work on it has been frustrating. It feels like I'm gong to touch a certain wire and it will miraculously run like a champ again, but until that time it has been aggravating.

    Work has been busy, but disinteresting.

    We all know if Miata isn't the answer to your problems, than s2000 is. Don't fight it.

    This little 1.6 Miata probably has more s2k track kills than most.

    You missed the usual. What's telling is how much we missed you.
