Hello from Arizona!







It's been a while.

The 3.8 has been running strong. It's fast. Z06 fast on the straightaway. With crappy tires, I can burnout in any gear. I just got myself a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports though, so no more of that.

Crono, your stable looks like a lot of fun. Your Boxster's new found speed most be a blast and surprise a lot of people. No one expects a 986 to be that fast.

Yea. It's hard to pick which one to drive in the morning. I will hand it to the 86 and the Miata - they may not be as fast but they are just as fun.

...Actually, around a road course, the 86 and the Miata might actually be just as fast. The gearing on the 86 is super tight- I'm using a 4.56 rear end with the S2000 AP1 tranny, so it accelerates like mad. A lot of fun for mountain roads. That Miata also weighs 1900 wet, and it's on slicks, so it's fun to beat around. It, obviously, is my track car- I'm not rich enough to hang with the BSR guys yet.

If you can afford to run a Spec Miata, all you have to do is sell the rest of your furniture and you can afford a Spec Boxster! Couches, chairs, and tables are over-rated. Trust me.
