Someone got a big check from the oil and gas lobby to write that drivel.

This tunnel visioning on profits is the single greatest enemy of innovation. Unless it has to do with oil production then suddenly everyone's a liberal humanitarian happy to use the national treasury to save jobs.

Sorry didn't realize everyone had to like the same things.

Last time I checked he didn't have anything 4x4 capable other then his family burban. And he didn't have time to do that stuff either.

In other news. Some different style 4x4 trails this weekend…

Just picked this up from my father in law. The commute just got a lot more exciting. It's got koni lowering springs, cold air intake, roll bar. Feels like a go-kart.

My friend picked up a set of those for his dodge 2500 - loves them. Iirc, he said something about low noise, decent mileage and couldnt comment on the wear yet.

Nice mazdarati ;) in the event you need any parts, corksport.com could be a good start (manufacturer parts in Vancouver WA) and mazdaspeedforums.org will have a miata section / knowledge base. However, MSF can be jerks, like completely above and beyond whats necessary or anything on nbr.

At the end of the day high power drag strip tanks like the above are fun for 5 minutes but when you take them to a proper circuit they're about as much fun as doing an XC race on a 40lb freeride anchor.

For driving enjoyment, add lightness.

Looks fun :)
