We should totally invade the Novi Subi Meet. They are super cool. I know I used to drive a wrx and visited them several times.

They meet on Tuesday nights still?

Hey BigRed, since I'm probably the resident engineering geek, I gotta comment on what you said about UM and Kettering. I wouldn't necessary make any preconceived judgements on the quality of the two engineering schools you mentioned.

I've met and worked with many grads from both schools and they all ranged both ends of the intellectual spectrum. I guess that doesn't necessarily speak to the quality of the institution, but the quality of the student. However, you could argue it is somewhat related.

And I suppose I can't speak for how good those schools might be today, only those who graduated pre-2000.

But I'd be up for a get-together when I get my summer's back on. If the wife lets me go..... haha. In other words, that means I gotta keep it 100% legal... is that going to be possible with you guys?!

MI_FamilyMan, don't sweet it man. When we all meet up just come and talk cars whateve, if you don't want to tool around town seeing whether or not you can attract enough attention to get a ticket... that's not a big deal.

No one can arrest you for parking next to another rx8 and talking to it's driver.

yeh, turns out it wasnt the master cylinder
there wasnt ne leaks or anything, we tried to bleed it but that didnt happen.
the brake pad is still soft, theres no compression. When I pump it, it gains a little bit more pressure but then fades out again.

where should i go to get this fixed?
i wanted to have it done by the afternoon so i could cruise around this saterday

anyone wanna help!

and oh yeh, its a 2nd Gen rx7 not an 8 for those who dont kno =p

Last edited by flipside27; 03-28-2008 at 08:05 PM. Reason: its a 7 not 8

^^ Are you headed to the XCeed BBQ on May 10th?

I'm signed up. Anyone wanting to attend as well, I am meeting up with the A2sportcompact.com group in Ann Arbor on the 10th and caravaning in to the BBQ. Should be a hellova turnout. I heard over 200 cars attend.

No doubt. I do not surf the XCeed site but I do occasionally meet up with the A2SCC group. They are planning to attend so I will go to hang with them. Much better than the annoying Xceed crew.

Consider it, it would be a good time.

Hay guys, who's up for the Novi Subi Meet next Tuesday APRIL 6?

Would it be cool if we all rolled in together, or LAME?

It's 8pm outside Hooters at "Fountain walk" mall. They do a meet & eat, then hang by there cars.

Maybe we could meet up at some other restaurant then cruise over to the meet.
