  1. It's all about minimum corner speed in these. If you can get that up, it will seem like you have more power. Also, harmonic dampeners go bad and can give an erroneous timing indication. Easy enough to confirm that "0" is really TDC on #1. If you erroneously retarded your timing, then you really will have a particularly underpowered car. Most of us advance the timing 2-4 degrees.
  2. Hallett! Always a fun track. Car did well there, mostly 1:27s. Wasn't able to finish the weekend though. Engine started blowing huge amounts of oil from the breathers. Also popped out my dipstick and oil soaked the "rag joint" (steering coupler) -- made the steering loose. So, I hung it up. Fortunately, I scored this off Craigslist for $400 last month. Goes to the machine shop next week. It's a legal 327 with all the right numbers. Just need some compression, cam and a bit of porting and I'm "off to the races."
  3. I'm famous! Page 27. https://www.flipsnack.com/victorylane/victory-lane-vol-37-issue-3-march-2022/full-view.html 🤣
  4. That's wierd. Dealers around here usually only have Clubs and GTs on their lots. Sports are hard to come by. Might be that there just aren't any cars right now. This is an awful time to buy a car, BTW.
  5. Track: Eagles Canyon Raceway 2.75CCW Italian Canyon - 02/19/2022 Lap Time: 2:14.273 (TrackAddict App) Ambient temperature: ~35°F Car: 1995 Miata w/VVT, Intake, Headers, Exhaust Estimated weight with driver: 2400 lbs WHP: ~125 Tires: Kumho Ecsta V730 225/45-15 Beautiful day! The V730s were just about worn out, but stayed consistent through a long life -- and they were inexpensive. Will buy again!
  6. COTA! First time there. In retrospect, I would definitely change some shift points and set the MSD for a 7K redline. If I was really serious . . . different rear end gears. Still, great weekend with classic Texas wacked out weather (had sleet on a session the day before).
  7. I got myself a 2020 a bit over a year ago. 0%. Best Miata ever. Mazda earned my business with that one.
  8. 1.8 and 1.6 test pipes have different angles unfortunately.
  9. Clutch is fixed, and I added a cage. Cages need to be tested, right?
  10. Nice job. Lightness is goodness.
  11. Fifty bucks barely buys gas for a Miata these days. 😞
  12. Most of us are posting from Texas for a reason . . . . I think you will have better luck putting together a team if you are in an area where there is a lot of racing. You'll meet "real" team members as you make friends at the track.
  13. Stockish. Car had a Richmond Super T-10 in it, but that's close to the limit of what they allow. I tore into it a bit yesterday. Diff is OK and transmission is OK. Probably broke the clutch disc. A little more digging and I'll know for sure.
