Default My driveway has changed...




Traded my S3 in today. Nearly a straight trade, but my S3 had 45k miles and was a 2018, this is a 2019 with 7k miles. Absolutely love this car. I've been thinking of taking advantage of the sellers market for a bit now, and I absolutely love the S3 and will miss the extra 100hp, but this thing is absolutely wild. Love everything about the way it drives, the hard top, etc. It's also very much like my S3 inside, including having a control knob for Android Auto, and very much feel right at home in it. Helps I've lost some weight too, the car fits me like a glove.

The best part? My wife said do it!

Oh, and I've wanted a Miata RF since they first announced them. This is a dream come true.

It’s more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow. The Miata’s are fun, and I’m sure you’ll have a blast taking it to Autocross.

Very cool. I'm happy for you. They did a really good job with the design/looks of the RF.



(I'd personally prefer the S3, but it's not about me.)

After driving it much more today and realizing just how tossable this car is, I'm fully on board with it S3 makes a ton of sense from a practical standpoint, but I'm fully in love with this MX-5.

Went on a drive with the local Miata club, went on Lime Creek Rd, which is notoriously twisty. 90% of the club was over 60 Here's the road:



Got to learn a lot about my car, and also was amazed at how hard the geriatrics drove them And now I don't miss the extra power of the S3.

Got a spare set of wheels for the Miata now, OEM pull off from a member of the local autocross chapter. Will be wrapping them in Bridgestone Potenza RE71R's next Friday, will be ready for autocross on Sunday.

My friend in Dallas has a Miata RF in that color, it's gorgeous. There were also a couple at the Miata meet this weekend.

I see a bunch of the Mazda SUVs in Soul Red Crystal and its definitely a nice color. I like the deep nature of it.

Got the original window sticker from Mazda, car doesn't have the package that gives you the LSD, so I'm assembling that myself. Ordered the LSD center section and OEM strut bar that come in the GT-S package, with the goal of staying in the CS autocross class.

​This car has some interesting cupholders. They're removeable, and there are different locations in the car that they can be plugged into. They're a little flimsy, so I've resolved to not have any cups without secure lids in the car. Here's a pic of the cupholders behind the arm rest:



And here's the one on the dash:



There's not much of a spot to place a phone in the dash, and the one spot that is there is too shallow for my OnePlus 8T, and also gets way too hot from transmission/exhaust heat, which overheats my phone, so I 3d printed a tray that plugs into the dashboard cupholder. Pic:



Printed on my Prusa i3 MK3S with a 0.6mm nozzle, I decided to push the machine on this print and went with 0.45mm layer heights, shaving the print time from nearly 13hrs to 10hrs. The only problem with those settings is the cracking you can see on the sides in the middle, but I like this tray enough I may go ahead and finish sand it, fill the cracks with superglue, and paint it. This piece is printed in ASA.​
