    We have 5 dogs (all rescue), and our fifth (Tigger) we like to call our accident since I had drawn a hard line after we got our 4th, our Dane. Tigger was also a failed foster and we wouldn't have it...

    Yeah, the C5 is an awesome performance bargain. I've just never cared for the styling, which does cause people to give me strange looks. I have to dig a car's aesthetics for me to purchase it and the...

    Tough, but right now it would have to be the BRZ for one major reason - seating position.

    The RS is the faster car in all circumstances, although the BRZ is very competent in the corners. But the...

    Yes, maam? ;)

    Yeah, 2+ cars is the way to go. My RS is competent enough in this winter shit and the new BRZ is just a freaking blast.

    In regard to the SWB/Wrangler comment, I drove them for many years. You've got to know how to drive with them, and then you've got a perfect mix of capability and fun.

    A further thought on this. I'm surprised to hear that, since the twins follow the "slow car fast" mantra. I think it's more fun to drive at legal speeds than the RS, which is breaking the law in...

    Punk,

    I ended up not being able to digest the price it would cost to buy the Miata I wanted, so I instead bought the BRZ I wanted. So far, it's been a brilliant little car.

    Perhaps....

    It takes X amount of force to close the valve, which is achieved both mechanically (spring) and pneumatically. A heavier spring requires less pressure and vice versa.

    I do suppose I could test out a lighter valve spring, but am not sure if I will see any net gains vs the two springs I had (untampered hammer spring).

    In response to the post above, it had a massive effect on velocity, which went from 280ish to 190ish after trimming the spring. To get ti back up, I had to crank the IVG in a good 3+ turns from...

    So obviously that valve doesn't rely heavily on the spring to close it quickly. If I remember the CCM valve, it uses a pretty large nylon/Delrin cup seal so perhaps that large area allows it to close...
