So I guess I haven't actually talked about it much on here, but there's a local Miata club here in Wichita. I was stoked when I found it, and it's been kinda cool so far. They have monthly meetings at Old Chicago (great, ANOTHER excuse to go there! As if once a week wasn't enough already!) and generally do at least one other thing per month. This month I've got three car-related weekends in a row, which rocks. This weekend is the monthly meeting. Next weekend is the first Autocross (w00t!). The weekend after that the Miata club is having a tech day at one guy's house. I'm going to get my ignition timing advanced from 10 to 14 degrees. I'm told it's a safe boost in power. I'm guessing it's like the adjustment that variable valve timing systems like VVT-i and VTEC give you at higher RPMS, only mine would be all the time since I don't have one of those schmancy systems. Which is fine, because I drive reasonably fast, keeping my car in higher RPMs and in a position to take advantage of the timing, and this car gets such good fuel economy compared to my last car that a little sacrifice in the name of more pep is a compromise I'm willing to make.

Anyway, I got a little technical right there. Sorry about that. I was talking about the Miata club. Yeah, I think the best part will be when we all actually get together and DRIVE THEM AROUND together. Ha, 15 or 20 Miatas all rolling around. Cool. I know that at some point we have a Drive-In Movie night. That should be fun, to all roll in and sit in a row. I'll take pictures.
