    Just did a massive cleaning and detailing. Had half the desert in my miata!!! It took a good 3.5hrs. , but was well worth it.

    Especially the engine bay. Been doing a lot of work round there as of late, and hav'nt had a chance to clean up my mess. Gotta love Simple Green!! Does a great job getting through grease and grime.

    Also an oil change (Royal Purple 10W-40). Seems to do the job perfectly when quieting the HLA's. Not to mention it handles quite well in the heat, with stop/go traffic.

    Well... it looks like I'm up for a new top yet again.

    This will be the second time that I've had to have my Robbins top replaced, due to the glue not being up to par!

    I got a cloth zipless glass window top from Robbins, through Raven Wing Performance. They're pretty good with following through on their warrantees. The first time the glue that held the winow in place started to give....thus the window would start to cave-in on the inside. Robbins replaced the top with no problem at all. Not even a full year later, and yet again, the glue is not doing it's job!!!! This time it's on the outside along the seam. At first I though it was just some dirt. But after a while, I noticed the separting seam started to get bigger.

    So now I'm getting another new top. I think this time around I'm just going to ask for a regular top with the zippered plastic window. At least that way I won't have to worry about the problems that were going on with the cloth zipperless glass top.

    Plus..... I also miss being able to unzip the rear window with the top up, for that "covered venting" effect, without the drag.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    I found a pro to put the 91BRG back on the road. He was able to straighten out most of the parts. I needed a new radiator. I spoke with him this week he said it should ready next week!

    That's excellent news!! She looks pretty rough in that pic. I'm glad she'll see the open road again.

    This is a week late.... just replace the top for the Robbins vinyl zippered plastic window. Everything went through without a hitch. Did'nt cost me thing!

    Had Autospa USA do the job in order to keep the warrantee good. It's a good thing to be able to see properly out of the rear window (unlike the sunfast cloth zipperless glass window, which hangs low and makes visibility a pain).

    Good job!!!
    I miss being able to have the time to do things like that.

    maybe when I relocate to Illinois next year, I'll have time to get some things done.

    it's the little things that matter

    Well, I'm sick of my shitty endlinks. Under braking, they'd pop and give, screwing a bit with the car's attitude mid corner. They never fully lined up 100% correctly, and the bar's pre-loaded. SO, I finally found a product that'll fulfill my needs. I'm going from the Racing Beats:


    to Gearhead Garage:


    these should work just fine I think
