    A skuzzle hello

    Thought i'd pop back in a few years down the line and see how many of the olds are still around.
    If anyone remembers me you might remember i moved on from the Mk4 astra to the Mk1 Mazda MX5.

    the astra:








    The mazda:



    Well turns out im quite the hair dresser then really because it got under my skin and not too long into ownership became circa 200bhp at the rear wheels thanks to an eaton m45 supercharger... full roll cage blah blah etc.

    Then it got track'd and driven hard as hell

    and spun a few times, lol

    Then broken for parts sad day that was.

    Anywho onwards to the skuzzle 5.2






    and 5.3 (which i bought for my old man)




    So anyway, after all that and a set of fireblade throttle bodies in the garage waiting to go on the red one I finally got around to doing something with my life.

    http://www.skuzzle.com

    I've been making MX5 products (only a couple so far but that will change soon) and i've also learnt to tune cars and am well respected in the MX5 community as knowing my way around the DIY EFI system known as the megasquirt.

    So i thought i'd stop by and see if anyone from the old days has a similar life altering story.

    WB skuzzle Yes I remember ya, the mazzie looks good, glad to see one being used properly Oh I'm also in SXOC now and get to play about with a Nissan 200SX S13 running 300BHP (in addition to the new blue mk3 astra) Also got a part share in a V8 GMC van (yank tank - LHD import), and share an Audi A4 Avant with the other half (when the damn things on the road, which is, basically never LOL) My adopted temporary car in place of the audi, for the past few months is a silver mk4 astra turbodiesel courtesy car, it's a hunk'o'junk and stinks of gearbox oil but it gets us around.

    Hello guys and gals... the nissan died a watery death but it did teach me to drift which is nice and the cillit bang remix!! GAR! luckily £800 of bandwidth is a days wage (or has been for the last week since my shop went live with my skuzzle TSI's)

    funny how things change.. yet my latest 5 has a touchscreen and in car PC tis but a wee 7" though

    So you guys still have the meets at westerham and whatnot ?

    Alrighty Nick! Looooong time no see! Glad your still in the MX5 fold, you seemed properly made up when you got the 1st one. What happened to your astra btw, did someone on here buy it?

    some randommer bought it first, then a guy who lives 2 doors down from me bought it from him. It remained parked outside my house for a year or so and slowly degraded.. then someone just around the corner bought it and slapped max power crap all over (even has chrome bump strips and a roof scoop now, lmfao).

    And then my mate in the plod pulled him doing over a tonne and the car remained stationery for quite some months.

    Anywho.. he's back on the street terrorising with it again... and it looks a little sorry for itself.

    Still miss it though.. mostly for the back seat but i will NEVER go WWD (wrong wheel drive) again.. its just boring.
