  1. Like this one? Feedback? Thrustmaster T300RS and 3x 24" decent gaming monitors. Cheers, https://gtrsimulator.com/product-category/stands/gta-f️-models/?utm_medium=_adwords&utm_campaign=&utm_source=&gclid=Cj0KCQiA0MD_BRCTARIsADXoopZv6Xm7kOObspJoeOXnjQo1u38T3prq-oOzJAhuGwGT8v9rNB4jHLoaAg8LEALw_wcB Edit - I've seen the thing where guys mount the monitor stand back at the wheel post location for my monitor size.
  2. Agree, harnesses in any car without a cage - or at least (on the fence about this) a hoop and rear section - is scary. A few years ago, Targa NL (stupidly) introduced a "Fast Tour" division - which allowed participation in the road rally, without car safety prep requirements, for half the entry fee.... It was meant I'm sure to bring in "street / tuner cars" to bump revenue, and I know the guy in these pics. Luckily he escaped with just a separated shoulder when the roof drove his head into his co-drivers lap... Had they decided to run harnesses it would have been a bad scene:
  3. Same smokin' deal we got it for, five hundo
  4. We have one in the car that we've been thinking about parting with. Older style Miata Cage setup in an NA that doesn't give us as much tilt as we would like on the seat. Would have to double check size, but our team ranges from ~175-225lbs and about 5'9" - 6' maybe, and we all fit fine.
  5. That's a good idea, hadn't considered that. @Dennis did even better, he let the rings rust-in a little bit, and picked up some hero compression / HP!
  6. Good condition lift-out Sweet build your buddy just finished Box of parts What do you guys have?
  7. Nice, thanks for the input man.
  8. There is definitely an MSD RPM switch sitting on the top of my toolbox yup
  9. We decided to do a headgasket on that 108whp/102tq engine before the ChampCar race at H2R in September. Cyl #2 was pushing water out the open rad cap (slightly) on a cold motor during a leakdown. Prior to the race, on a hero Amazon compression test gauge that reads higher than my other one, the compression looked like this: Pre Race - Cold / Dry Compression Cyl #1 - 155psi Cyl #2 - 150psi Cyl #3 - 165psi Cyl #4 - 170psi On the Saturday, we placed 3rd overall in A-class, behind two well sorted NB1 and NB2 VVT swapped Miatas (Josh is on here actually), with ou
  10. What, yer guyses track days don't all end like this?
  11. Yeah.....a buddy borrowed my compression tester, then eventually Amazon'd a new one to my house for convenience. ......it came with 15psi extra compression per cylinder! Cheapest engine refresh I've ever done ?
  12. Tried to respond to this, and ended up on Matt's profile somehow, which had a hot pink background. Anyway, my home setup is pretty close to what Matt described: I used to set up 4 jackstands longer than the wheel base, and square up accounting for the difference between front and rear trackwidth on the Miata @ the axle lines. So I'd set the strings at axle height, and square at the axle line. Stack tires to match driver weight as pictured and use a Longacre Camber Gauge (3-arm type) to measure Camber. Measure to each of the front and rear lips of the wheels for toe, then
