  1. Reminds me of TWS (RIP). Who is going to be the last poster on TJ?
  2. I sure do like forums for doing build threads. I was just getting ready to start a "Project X" build thread. Robert knows what I'm talking about. Oh well, at least we'll still have this around as "Read-Only."
  3. 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.
  4. 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."
  5. I'm famous! Page 27. https://www.flipsnack.com/victorylane/victory-lane-vol-37-issue-3-march-2022/full-view.html 🤣
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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).
  9. I got myself a 2020 a bit over a year ago. 0%. Best Miata ever. Mazda earned my business with that one.
  10. 1.8 and 1.6 test pipes have different angles unfortunately.
  11. Clutch is fixed, and I added a cage. Cages need to be tested, right?
  12. Nice job. Lightness is goodness.
  13. Fifty bucks barely buys gas for a Miata these days. 😞
