OT 16: GrandFAP lives!

Went to this “interactive” art thing last night. Third year they’ve had it, called Wonderspaces. First year, all the exhibits were really cool. Last year they were okay. This year they were all meh. We’ll probably go again next year if it comes around again, hoping it gets back to what it used to b...

Turbro Miata. To ruin or not to ruin?

Ripped almost all of the old miata motor apart that ive had sitting around since september. Loads of carbon on the pistons and cyl 1 was missing about 2.5 inches of ring that has disappeared somewhere. Cylinder walls look pretty good. And no signs of significant damage. Ill have to check the head ov...

Turbro Miata. To ruin or not to ruin?

Update for everyone. Fans are running. Running 70/30 mix already. Coolant is topped. Guess I’m going to get the car warmed up and see if the thermostat is working properly. If not I’ll replace it and see. I’m hoping I don’t need to swap my water pump. EDIT: Took the cap off and let the car warm up. ...

Turbro Miata. To ruin or not to ruin?

It’s getting pretty hot in west Texas. But not crazy compared to South Carolina. Car has started to overheat. No coolant leaks. Radiator seems fine. I’ve got coolant. Nothing has been touched on the car in months. While driving I can see the gauge creep a little. But at a stop it climbs pretty rapid...

But at $60 a year they’d likely sell more memberships which would lower that threshold. Doesn’t cost them more to have more people streaming from their satellites. Yea, I don't understand why they don't lower the price to get more people subscribing. Is there a point of critical mass where the sate...

Costs to continue to operate satellites and keep a network running smoothly are pretty expensive. I however do not believe theyre $300 a person expensive for just radio communications.

I think my singular cost would top at $1000. After that I could just go to a breeder and get a schnoodle. Being allergic raises my price since its hard to find a cute hypoallergenic dog at the pound. We're also at $1k...but our dog is 7 or 8, and a bulldog mix so likely close to reaching her end. I...

The Miata. lol 04 VW R32 sitting on 18x9 wheels and racing slicks at the moment. Needs street tires instead. Is this a car you own now? I’d be curious to hear impressions on the Indy 500, seems really good for the price. Will these see track at all or what are the driving conditions? Yeah bought it...

If you want to go full :scrooge: then the sumibromo HTR ZIII is a decent tire but it wears quickly. I'd probably go with the Indy 500 on that car.
Im liking the price of the Indy 500. And the reviews.

And a Troy suggestion is solid in my book.

I dont actually know what most of his abbreviations mean.

Also any time I read AF it means Air Force.

Silverware and kitchen knives

I really need to get on this knife bandwagon. I just put my magnet up the other day. I need to sharpen the old blades and put up my new knives.
