    Man. Incroyable weekend.
    New RS4s are incredible.... sooooo much grip, and zero rubbage..... which I was worried about.

    Kept my goal of being top 20 raw and within 2 seconds of Barry.

    Got to drive 650hp of Datsun goodness:


    Pretty incredible feeling breaking 315 A7s loose in third gear. Car is unbelievably good.

    Bill had borrowed a set of rims from me a couple years ago and asked me if I could pick them up while I was around from other Bill. Sure. Sunday evening I head to other Bills house. As I pull up to the house there is a ratty looking miata in the driveway. Other Bill has to leave for a dinner date and was waiting for me in the driveway.

    When did you get a Miata bill?

    Couple years? It has your suspension on it!

    Like my old teins or konis?

    No, what are they called... XIDAS?

    wow, nice! Have fun at dinner

    Oh yeah, it has an ecotec swap too.

    Say what?

    Wanna drive it?



    So, he tosses me the keys and then leaves.


    It's pretty neat. I only drove it for a few minutes because it was super loud and in a fancy pants neighborhood.... didn't want to create any angry neighbors.

    Power delivery is instant and without hesitation, right off idle. Polar opposite of any turbo/SC setup.

    Tires were bald old rs3s, first gear and second gear would break loose with spirited throttle application at any rpm.

    Acceleration in 5th is strong even at low rpm.

    Engine sounds MUCH coarser than standard Miata fare. Might be due to the 3" exhaust without any real muffler.

    Can't imagine 3" exhaust would sound good. But Ecotec swaps are the knees of bees.

    They all look great, but I particularly like the nostalgic effect on the Gomaro. Slick's car looks good with the steely glint on the windshield.
