There's no more physical sound tube from what I could see, so could be right about the digital augmentation. But my guess would be it's the door being open in an enclosed space so the engine sound...

I've got two sets of wheels that I switch between - 17x8 (225/45/17) and 17x9 (235/45/17). I definitely notice the 17x9 wheels feel a bit heavier and slower in the canyons. But hard to tell whether...

I like the look of the Miata RF but the extra weight (without offering trackable rollover protection) makes it a non-starter to me.

That's amazing :clap: I always wondered why nobody had tried rotating a tall/narrow oil cooler like that to reduce the flow restriction. Great to see it actually done!

Another vote for the smell test. On a cold start you can smell the unburnt fuel in the exhaust. With e85 it has a sweet aroma that’s easy to detect. I’d start it up in the morning and take a few...
