Got my money's worth out of these tires. Check out that huge glob of OPR (other peoples rubber) and the tread separation just above it. Hoosiers bro.

New radiator in the miata!

Last night I installed this fancy cross-flow radiator from +949 Racing in my miata. The installation was pretty straight forward, but required some careful trimming of the water hoses they supplied for a perfect fit.

Also I threw in a new Stant 180F thermostat. We'll see how these all perform next weekend at Laguna Seca.

Currently 0 for 2 with radiators. Monday evening I was planning on replacing the vans radiator because it leaks only to find a severely bent replacement. Not to worry, the Miata needs an upgrade too! And the replacement part for the Miata was crushed during shipping.

At least I was able to do something to rescue the evening and installed a coolant temperature sensor and gauge in the Miata. Still kind of a hollow victory.

Megasquirt MS2 build complete! Next up: small modifications to make it play nicely with a Miata and actual in-car testing.

I considered building it, but I found a furniture maker in Foster City who supplied the redwood slab for the table top and built the set using some redwood planks that I supplied for the benches. I'll start my woodworking career with something smaller and less complex.

Tasty food and excellent drinks. Long beer, wine and spirits menu. Fish & Chips - very good. Wonderful and flaky fish with textbook (and extremely tasty) french fries.

Do not be tempted to buy the almond (or almond chocolate) croissant, the regular one is fantastic. Coffee drinks are good but not excellent.

Great meal. Wine is a tad expensive. Split a salad, a charcuterie and a cheese plate with a bottle of wine for a perfect meal.

I had a coupon for two dyno pulls at TPS and they fit me in the same day I called. They were very helpful and friendly in addition to helping me adjust some things on my car in between dyno pulls. Great service, friendly staff, would highly recommend.
