  1. Sort of. I can get the 2.5 ready on my own, but I'm going to need a hand for the actual swap and social distancing is not going to help. I measured valve clearances with the factory cams before removing them, I was surprised they were a tad more than the spec. This engine only has 2K miles. Looks like I'm going to need new buckets/lifters.
  2. I'm with you, that's the right thing to do.
  3. Is there a way to avoid having to go to the office to sign in? Like online forms and payments?
  4. I might have to show up then.
  5. The Lengends were out of control, even during the TnT.
  6. I'm planning on leaving Houston around noon after loading in the morning.
  7. More parts are arriving. I have enough to start prepping the engine:
  8. Ladies, let's keep it Casper focused.
  9. Interesting question, not being negative Nancy. First to all, the reason for swapping to RX8 knuckles is reliabilty/safety, since it is well known from the Pirelli TCR class that the original MX-5 hubs are weak. Even the new MX-5 class allows and recommends the swap. With that being said, I did see a "gain" in camber. I would put it as non-conclusive since I removed all the links and eccentrics when I swapped the knuckles. The "gain" I saw is easily achievable with the original hardware. The only way to really know is to measure both knuckles. I would be surprised if it hasn't been done. I'm not planning on sending Greg an email tbh, that's not my goal for the car. I'll let someone else inquire and fight that battle.
  10. Registered for TT5 with my under powered Miata.
  11. Here is the bitching that required these pictures: https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=711373
  12. Cams and valve springs ordered, now I can start working on prepping the engine.
