    Also that.. repairs of the thing are pretty expensive.. honestly I think I will do the other " standard" BMW upgrades first and collect the manual swap parts. Also, trunk arrived, little messed up from being shipped on Greyhound, but still better than the carbon look one:

    SMG is first gen flappy pedals, robot arm to manual gearbox type.. it's pretty basic with a lot of failure points. Mostly: I like 3 pedals, my tow vehicle is my first automatic I've ever owned.. as we don't do automatics overseas. You get a special license if you just can drive an automatic.
  3. Also, buy this and read it cover to cover a couple times: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0760340501/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_nklgEb7EBDJCB
  4. About 3 times a well set up spec miata.. https://www.racingjunk.com/Formula/184015665/2007-Ferrari-430-Challenge.html?category_id=4&np_offset=22

    Goals 2020

    Get back to pre- moving to Texas weight, as I can't seem to cut enough weigh out of the car.. Have Spec Miata 2 race / rent ready Get SCCA licence Top 3 Nasa TX Run Nasa Nats Run a Super Tour Finish in front of Vinnie once Get M3 ready for HPDE
  6. 1. Don't crash it Had a happening in the winter series before the season start. After that pretty clean besides some "standard" SM taps 2 .Run the full Spec Miata Nasa TX season Only missed out on Cota as I don't like changing gearboxes.. but added most of the NOLA season to it. 3. Get within a second of Vinnie's times Pretty close most tracks.. just not at Cresson 4. Change the spare Spec Miata for a road legal DE car On my way to pick up a ESR head for the spare miata.. so not getting rid of it.. but bought a e46 m3, so kinda completed.. ? Overall it went pretty well... just realized I didn't do any DE's or open days for the last 3/4 of the year, just ran Nola a lot. Resulted in 3rd in Nasa TX and 1st in Nasa Nola. Pretty stoked with results, but looking to try on the big boys next year as the Texas field thinned a bit. Still trying to see how without spending all my money on Hoosiers..
  7. Nola.. in the sun, 70 degrees.. and reverse grid start on Sunday.. Also with free miss shift at start.
  8. Last time I checked.. all at the Choice Wrl people... never seen so many rs4’s together..
  9. Anybody else heading out to scratch the itch? https://www.nasaproracing.com/events/2972 Configuration: 2.75 mile configuration with esses
  10. Anybody parting out a Miata? Looking for on of these dashboards: . Looking for "race" quality.. ideally with a heater core and hvac controls as well.

    Gave it some fresh fluids and did an autox in it: And it survived! It has all of the under steer with the staggered Sumitomo tires. Trying to gather parts to some basic e46 fixes to get it ready to DE: Rear sub frame reinforcements.. plates are in, now just need to find all of the while you're in there bushings. Flex joint didn't like the auto x starts and is hanging by the treads.. And a new trunklid.. finally found somebody who want to ship one in the right color.. can't wait to lose the carbon look trunk..
