Picked up a BP4 out of a 99 Miata to swap into my 91 Miata. Looking forward to the extra torque and power on track. Swap commences in two weeks!
Someone backed into my while I was at a grocery store, and luckily I have Hagerty insurance so the Miata wasn’t totaled out. New front bumper and fresh paint today and it should be ready for action next week!
So now I don’t have to worry about killing the Miata at the track and not being able to get home.
finished building my gaming PC and attached my Miata’s stock seat to a wheel setup. Looks fantastic and way more comfortable than using my desk chair.
Not sure where this came from but a coworker sent it to me. I filled it out for my Miata.
I have a partial tear in my rotator cuff, so my normal after work activities (rock climbing, wrenching, gym) have to be replaced with some that don’t require the use of my shoulder as much...
Bought the truck on Monday, took it camping 4 days later. I’m an adult leader with my old boy scout troop, we spent this weekend canoeing along the Brazos river. I tried out some of the easier offroad trails in the area as well.
LED headlight bulbs and LED interior lighting because it’s kind of ridiculous that a 50k truck doesn’t have them from the factory. Also all weather mats. I’m ready for camping this weekend!
Got some trade in offers for a new 4Runner, most dealers were offering way way way below what I was expecting for the BRZ. Took it to a shop that specializes in buying/selling sports cars and they gave me very very close to kbb value.
Set a new PB, but there’s still a TON of time to be gained on the new suspension setup. The track was completely green because of the rainstorms in Dallas the last couple weeks, my AIM Solo2 said my theoretical best time was in the 1:29.xx range. I tried a new line through rattlesnake that helped me pick up a full…
As much as I love having a 400hp BRZ, I don’t need two sports cars. I’m starting the part out of the BRZ this week and will hopefully have it sold in the next couple months. Planning on getting a 2019 Voodoo Blue TRD Pro 4Runner to tow the Miata.
Had to borrow a Dremel from a co-worker but finally installed the Momo wheel that’s been sitting in my garage for a month.
I raised the front suspension by 1/2" and removed the fender liner because the tires kept rubbing when going over bumps. That issue seems to be solved now, so back to Firestone for an alignment. I’m also going to be rolling the fenders tomorrow so I’m not slicing into my tires. I don’t like that I have zero rake now,…
Waiting on my tuner to overlay the 93 and E85 dyno sheets for both 10 and 12psi, but holy crap this thing is scary now. I have no traction in first or second gear. I had to pass a car this morning and I went from 40 to 75 terrifyingly fast. I was giggling like a maniac the whole time.
Got a Walbro 485 fuel pump, Delicious tuning flex fuel kit, and 550cc injectors. Gonna get tuned tomorrow for flex fuel and that should put the BRZ at ~400 whp. Can’t wait!
Here’s mine from February 6 years ago. Reading through the comments I realized how much help I got over the years from this community. I helped found SMU’s FSAE program (Hilltop Motorsports), have had multiple project cars, started a car club (DFW86 what upp), and generally got really involved with the community. My…
Banana Racecar is alive and well, got lots of goodies in the last couple months, but this is how it sits right now.
