When I was a valet we would get people all the time that would rent exotic cars and have no idea how to operate it. The worst were when the c6 vettes came out. Watching a grown man not be able to figure out a push button start is pretty funny. Or watch someone in a Ferrari stall a few times just leaving a downhill drive way.

What's more funny is watching a fellow valet just hired not know how to drive a manual trans. Right after telling you he could. It still surprises me to see how many people can't figure a clutch out (my wife included).

I might go to endurocross tonight as well. My boss has a box at Orleans arena.

Manual transmissions are good theft deterrents. Not many of these ghetto thieves can operate a stick.

Heres some pics of its first set up.

70mm turbo
T-56 6 speed
Ill get some of the big motor when i get home. Ran this set up at 20psi on E-85 before it came apart. Made about 650hp still fun. You guessed it was forced induction but how about being a vert also. Lmao nothing like having a crazy fast convertible.

Here are 2 of the Rx7s I had the pleasure of working on when I lived in NC. We used to take them and race at Rockingham a weekend a month.

They were fun and rotary engines blew my mind with their output.

I don't drive fast any more. On my commute to work, you will find me in the slow lane doing right around 65.

sirhk100 how much are you asking for your Mazda 3?

I know a few guys in NC that work on them, but not locally.

If nothing else pops up to side track me, next week's project is replacing the drivers side half shaft. That was supposed to be this week's project but a hiccup in a simple jeep project had it taking up the garage the whole week instead.

Once I get that replaced the only issue I know with the car is the drivers side power mirror doesn't work. I just adjust it by hand and forget about it though.

So, for tomorrow's trail, there's two of us? Who else?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
