Balance relaxation with being aware. Relax, so that when you inevitably get cut off, you don't fly off the handle. Be aware by looking far ahead and always having an exit strategy in case things go south. Or just drive with a passenger for a few years and it will eventually come relatively naturally. I used to take… » 9/16/14 3:28pm Today 3:28pm

Patience is key, couldn't agree more. I looked for 6 months and thought that was long enough... It wasn't long enough. But I still like my car, warts and all. Limited slip is less of a big deal if you have good tires on it. I'd like a limited slip, but it can wait. I put more importance on getting a 1.8 with my NA.… » 9/16/14 3:03pm Today 3:03pm

I mostly blame the headlights. The line of the headlights is awkward, where the top of the light bleeds into the grille area. That emphasizes the "brow" of the hood to where it looks like it has a big forehead. Visually, it blunts the front end, in my opinion. Pull the top line of the headlights back or push the… » 9/16/14 12:41pm Today 12:41pm

If you're looking for a Miata that's for sale in Florida, finding something that's both stock and well cared for, and with a manual, is a surprising challenge. Most of the stock ones I'd found were pretty beat or neglected (including the one I bought) and when they're not stock, it usually something so far gone that… » 9/12/14 11:35am Friday 11:35am

I've been thinking about the classification issue myself for my NA, with the braided lines. I installed Russell lines and then a couple of weeks later found out about that rule. I don't think I'll remove them anytime soon though, as I kind of did a number on one of the banjo bolts on the rear hard line. No leaks… » 9/12/14 11:30am Friday 11:30am

I thought it was a pretty good soundtrack, actually. GTA IV's soundtrack got old to me much more quickly. Also, you just need to learn how to hide better. Drive down to the train tracks over by Grove Street and follow the tracks underground, and just wait, the cops won't follow you down there. It works every time.… » 9/12/14 11:17am Friday 11:17am

I'm sure it will be really good. As a single player game, I liked the first Horizon better than the regular Forza (which was better for multiplayer). Arcade physics are looked down on a lot but there were times when you'd want to build something really crazy in the regular Forza and the physics wouldn't really let you… » 9/11/14 11:01am Thursday 11:01am

Not this again. I thought they were already generally working on their suspensions to reduce understeer, since the Aventadors started out with the same problem. The undefeatable ESP is not really staying true to their history of being the brand of angry bulls. First, Audi doesn't want Lamborghini to be seen as… » 8/22/14 1:27pm 8/22/14 1:27pm

Huge pipe. If he wants to sell it for that much it better have a brand new radiator, compression test already done, new plugs, wires, tires, brake fluid, coolant, trans, and diff fluids. And even with all that it's still got 156k on the clock. That's a $3.5-4k car tops (if someone really wanted yellow). The smart way… » 8/21/14 1:14am 8/21/14 1:14am
