    2006 NC Miata
  1. 0) TWS - I just loved the way the track flowed. 1) MSRC - Fun track with multiple configurations and the pavement is in decent shape for texas tracks. 2) COTA - This track is fun when you have a fast car and the facilities are amazing. 3) MSRH — Nice track but very humid and the pavement is rough in a few areas. 4) Nurburgring Nordschleife — This track is very challenging due to its massive size, elevation changes, varying levels of grip and traffic, but it’s definitely worth driving. 5) H2R — This is the closest track to me and the staff is very helpful and friendly but the track is extremely bumpy and it takes four days for the water that runs across the back to dry up.
  2. Sounds good, I'll snap a picture of the date code this weekend.
  3. I can meet you there. I won’t be participating as my Miata doesn’t do too well at Cota, but I can meet you there.
  4. I have a 16ft trailer (19.5 total length) and it fits just fine in my garage, would that be an option?
  5. I have a brand new set of four Nitto NT01's in 235/40/17 that I purchased but decided to go up to the 255/40/17. These tires are brand new and have never been mounted. The tires are located in San Antonio, but I can meet in San Marcos (H2R). $575
  6. Rumors are that it’s coming in 2020 or 2021. https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/future-cars/a19682494/theres-a-next-gen-toyota-86-and-subaru-brz-coming-and-it-might-have-more-power/ I was about to pull the trigger on a new 2018 BRZ premium for $22,700 before I found my used 2014, so don’t pay sticker price.
  7. I would jump into an 09 or greater NC instead of an NA and if you need more room, go with the 86/FRS/BRZ.
  8. WOW.....They made some serious upgrades to the car.
  9. Beautiful but it’s missing a pedal ;-)
  10. It really depends on your suspension setup. I was out there briefly in a mostly stock FR-S and going uphill felt better but I think that I would still have to lift in the Miata to avoid losing traction.
  11. My car didn't come with traction control but it does have ABS. I don't think that any production car allows you disable ABS without pulling sensors or pulling fuses but I could be wrong. I don't find my ABS system to be intrusive, was yours?
  12. Thanks for sharing @@Code Monkey. I ended up paying $545 for UEL headers, overpipe, heatshield and shipping with similar performance to the Tomei. The only downside is that I won't receive the headers until mid December. https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=92104
  13. My NC Miata has no nannies whatsoever, although certain models have them but they can be disabled with a press of a button. The FRS/BRZ requires that you do a sequence of things on startup to disable the nannies. This is known as the pedal dance.
