Some people have run into issues with the EPS shutting down. Maybe the switch to 13.5 is an effort to reduce the load on the EPS.

Looks like the original 3rd gear with the 4.1 final. The speed is a little lagged it seems but very close.

I think he was referring to the 2gen Twins not the ND/ND2 Miata. The new Twins for the most part is just a refresh (didn't get a new chassis).

I love cars with lots of black accents that contrast with a clean white. I would have gotten a white twin if it was actually white. I agree they look dirty.

My guess is the occupancy is capacitive and the airbag is a load cell.

I put solid mounts on the rack in my IS300 (1st gen) and man it made a big improvement to feedback. I didnít realize there was anything like this for the Twins. Thanks for the heads up.

Turning power steering off and on?

I would start by pulling the fuse. You will quickly find the FR-S is not a Malibu. The FR-S ratio is 13:1 vs 16.4:1 on the Malibu. With EPS disabled the FR-S is incredibly hard to turn even while...

Personally pearl and flake have no place on sports cars. The Twins would look so good in pure white, especially the 2nd gen.

2 and 3 are most common to spin because they share one main feed where as 1 and 4 have dedicated feeds.

One end to the OBD2 port and the other to a USB port. Techstream is a Windows application and not free. Google around and you should find lots of helpful info about the software.

I wasnít suggesting an over rev or low pressure wouldnít also cause an eject, Iím simply saying an eject doesnít automatically point to an over rev or pressure.
