Re: Official PDX Lounge

Curly has seen the beast that is my motorcycle. I love it for commuting. Though I do get the feeling that everyone is out to kill me. I ride it like I rode a bike for years in Portland, keep an eye behind you at all times and assume that no one sees you.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

My tightest connection is the rear, upper, outer bushing. It's tight squeezing the control arm around it but has drastically loosened up over time. All the other arms will droop under their own weight when disassembled (not so originally).

Hope that helps!
07-27-2015 05:22 PM
turbofan Hmm ok I hope mine loosen up. Alex and I had a similar conversation, ha.

Yes I used lots of the copper permatex grease recommended by Bob Bundy.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Some folks say the ES bushings should be shaved to fit. I didn't and they seemed to have loosened up over the years (good). You did grease liberally, yeah?
07-27-2015 05:05 PM
turbofan Also, I need someone who is familiar with the workings of poly bushings to come play with my control arms. They're all mounted but they seem too stiff.
07-27-2015 12:57 PM
turbofan I miss bikes too. I had several thousand miles on them. Then was stopped at a stoplight and an old man driving a Chevy s10 with a small boat hit me from behind, he was doing abou 60 mph. Didn't hit the brakes til after he hit me. Lucky to be alive, I am.

No more bikes for me.

IN OTHER NEWS... I have a 52mm eBay aluminum radiator for sale of anyone wants it. Brand new in box with cap. It is quite pretty. $110.

I have several thousand miles on bikes. Rode from Missouri to Sturgis in 2005. I miss it!

But I could be turbo or swapped or something.... Planning to pull out $4k. Not a lot but enough. Well see.

Fuck. Turns out they're tan tops. He was wrong. Sorry for the bother...

Although in other news... I may buy a cheaper motorcycle and spend the rest on Miata things. Maybe new exhaust and MS. Going to build a lean wing because I'm cheap and maybe DIY splitter. I'm such a fanboigirl.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

My 740s were more off than that (at least for a couple).

1 week downtime, no big deal.

Another +1 for RC.

You'll be fine. These cars can take a punishing and to be fair.. first few times on track you hardly work a vehicle.

Something to consider. The M3 won't be ready, but if the Miata is by then I might go with that.
Hmmmm... I'm doing track night at the ridge on 8/12. Not sure how I feel about back to back abuse sessions... BUT 8/14 is my birthday and I'm already off work. Shit. This is gonna get expensive...
07-26-2015 12:26 AM
aidandj I too have purple tops for sale. Someone buy both sets and make a Miata v8?
