Sounds like its got a major vacuum leak. Probably knocked a hose off or something.

What paint did you use for your tire letters. The one i did ended up flaking off about 2 days later. But it looked great for 2 days.
I used the Elmer's medium tip paint pen. I'm scared they'll flake, too. That's why I don't plan to put them on until this meet/drive at the end of the month. I have a friend who did it to his e34 and his paint never flaked. It's seen numerous washes, too.

i went to the local auto part store and bough a bottle that kind of looked like white out but matches car paint color. I found white and one side had a brush type thing the other had a pen. Tried it and it looked ok. Ill try the paint you said and try that after you try it and it works.

Changed my oil and filter yesterday, but more importantly my spark plugs.
My idle was getting lumpy and I had low speed stumble under 2000 rpm as I was pulling away from a stop.
They had just under 30,000 miles on them. Now it pulls smoother, and the stumble is gone. Best $ 10 I've spent in a while.

Just swapped wheels. I'm pretty sure I could start a hardware store with all the nails and screws I found in my tires. The letters flaked immediately, though. Still looks good from a distance. I think I'll go the stencil route next.

I'm thinking about doing that to my wheels soon. What paint did you use. Cause if its flaking then I don't want to go that route. What do you recommend? Like a spray paint?

Put the top down in the miata, sat in it for a bit remembering the good times we had, started it up to listen to it run again...

God damn I miss driving it
