    anyone know anything about surface enhanced raman spectroscopy?
    "the fact is, Jack Rice and team make a paintball gun, that works, and works pretty well actually. I think that says everything that needs to be said about the state of paintball gun engineering"

    I've done raman spectroscopy in a MOT, I don't know what these "surfaces" you speak of are though

    I am now considering a full miata lineup.

    keep junker white miata, its the best car in the entire world. ever. no argument.

    sell mr2 -> acquire spec miata for road racing
    sell porsche -> acquire ND miata for autocross

    then the truck and trailer, the perfect 5 spot garage really.

    There is something to be said for specializing. Knowing a car inside and out three times over seems like it'd have benefits.
    And the science gets done, and you make a neat gun, for the people who are still alive.

    That's one of the reasons I tend to keep my paintball guns long-term. I know the feel, I know the internals, I know where they will and won't perform. Just a slight change in feel can throw off everything else.

    And Miatas are quite good besides.

    the ND is a masterpiece too. fanfuckingtastic car. in club spec with the LSD and brembo brakes, its just, pretty much the perfect car. i wish it looked better, but it drives so much like an old car, in all the right ways. new sports cars are all bushinged to hell, rubber everywhere, too heavy, too powerful, drive by wire shitty ... and the ND has most of those thngs. but they spent so much time getting the car to feel like how old sports cars drove. analogue, throttle cable, old powersteering etc etc. its just truly a masterpiece of modern car engineering, precisely because it doesn't feel like a modern car. its soft and comfortable on the street, and on the track you use that weight transfer to load it up, and it does exactly what you expect at all times. they are just a fantastic drive, at 4/10ths, and at 10/10ths.

    ive driven several, and every-time i swear i need one.

    Never heard of it, but I am definitely going to watch after seeing that video clip. Very creative and amusing.

    Gordon, even I accept this miata as my lord and savior
    "So you've done this before?"
    "Oh, hell no. But I think it's gonna work."
