Makes sense,

Most meata drivers invest in the travel sized ones :doe:
Must not have had time to get the travel size and had to stick with the regular ones for this trip.

So my large suit case doesn't fit the trunk. But barely fits the front seat with the top up.

My roommate drove the car for me yesterday. And while coming to a stop he had the clutch pressed and the car stalled out. He said before the car stalled the battery light came on. Also my windows no longer go all the way down.

Only one month until I get home to figure this crap out.

A friend and I went out for a drive last night. 2.5 hours of tearing up some empty back roads. We eventually found our way an hour from home and at a lake campground. The car performed ALMOST perfectly. The engine didnt get hot (thank you koyo radiator) I still want to do the reroute though. But the clutch did start to slip on me. Which means it will not hold at all once I get the MS ecu and start tuning. So its now time to order a happy meal. :(

Also ordered a Megasquirt ECU earlier this week.

Not for my bank account. Im thinking of just having my flywheel resurfaced instead of getting a new one. It will save me $300 and make my wallet much happier.

Thank you. I might hit you up. Did you do self tuning? Im thinking the tuner locally who specializes in miatas might be best for my initial tune. And then I will fine tune for daily driving and cold starts which ive heard are difficult with aftermarket ecus.

Youre the second person to tell me that. Which is odd because their website really recommends the super light one.

Im sure I would enjoy the light flywheel. But at this moment in time I could use the $300 for other purposes. The main one being the eventual purchase of proper wheels and tires. These gaudy 17s are so bad.

they in the business of selling car parts. :iono:

LW flywheel on an NA motor: revers easier, easier to rev match, final drive is generally shorter so revving freer actually matters.

LW flywheel on boost: wont rev as easy as NA because of turbo restrictions (engine needs LOAD to build boost, otherwise that turbo is a big restriction. ) sure it will be better than stock...but not as much. Turbo cars are generally geared longer so revving free is less of a big deal.
