  1. Thanks for all the interest, but the wheels are now sold. A couple folks are also interested in the suit but nothing is confirmed yet.
  2. Hey all, I need to reallocate some money to bicycle parts. Help me out and buy my stuff. Gen 1 15x8 nickel 6ULs with old (2009 datecode) 205 R888s and aluminum valve stems. One wheel looks newer than the others because it was an old-stock replacement (also Gen 1) I bought from 949 after I damaged a wheel. These were used at the track and so have scuffs, slight scratches, etc - there is curve rash on the inside edge of one of the wheels. With some elbow grease they can probably look pretty nice. Asking $350, local sale only. G-Force 545 double-layer suit, size Large. Sizing info here. I wore it for for two weekends (TWS Chump race and NASA race) and have not put it on since. Slight fraying on the right shoulder from forgetting to tie down the velcro prior to washing. Asking $150, prefer local sale. Will trade for small titanium / carbon road bike frames, dura ace and sram red components, and weight weenie accessories!
  3. Price drop, $6000. Someone buy it!
  4. Count me in. Look forward to catching up with everybody
  5. Thanks Robert! Just to clarify, it was my old Miata that had the rear transmission seal fail, but I'm still not sure if flat towing was the culprit.
  6. Yes, unfortunately not street legal. Not registered or insured, no cat, front lights, turn signals, etc. Also, I think technically harnesses are not road legal, something about not having the red buckle release paramedics and first responders look for. The only street driving it sees is around my cul de sac under 15mph. Haha, the exhaust drone alone would make it horrible to drive on the highway. I don't own a trailer, I've just flat towed it to tracks. I've only taken this car to TWS and MSRH, but for longer drives like Hallett I hear it's best to disconnect the driveshaft from the diff. You don't necessarily need a truck either, I used to pull my old Miata with a sweet Ford Windstar minivan. Braking was a little slow but I could cruise at 65 on the highway with my A/C. It's tough to beat the flat towing setup. I'm willing to deliver to Dallas (or Austin or SA) if the buyer covers gasoline fees .
  7. Hey all! I'm posting my Spec Miata for sale. It's been more than a year since I've been to the track and the poor car is just sitting in my garage. It needs to be driven! Info below: Asking $6000 Engine / Drivetrain 1.6 Spec Miata Springfield Dyno Exhaust Racing Beat Intake 4.3 Torsen Interior Lucas Racing cage Kirkey seats Sparco 6-pt driver belts (expires 2015) Simpson 5-pt passenger belts (long expired) Schroth right-side net, G-Force driver net (SFI manufactured 2012) G2X Datalogger and Display Pegasus steering wheel / QR hex hub Suspension Spec miata setup - Bilstein shocks - Eibach springs - GC coilover kit - Eibach Sways Fat Cat SM shock mount / bumpstop upgrade 99 top hats NAPA rotors, Axxis Ultimates front, EBC Yellow rear Wheels / Tires TR Motorsport C1 15x7 with 205 RA1s (ex rain tires that I used for 2 dry weekends) Kosei K1 15x7 with 205 Star Specs (ex Chump Car winning tires that I use as rollers - courtesy of Team EOS and Edison) Enkei RF-1 15x7 (6 wheels only) Drag DR21 15x7 (4 wheels only - courtesy of Edison) Other AMB Wired Transponder Mishimoto radiator (new, not installed - car has stock radiator, was planning to upgrade but did not have any issues with heat during DEs) Tow bar (flat towing) Negatives It looks great from 10 feet away, but it ultimately is a race car. There's minor dents around the body and paint fade in parts. The paint is chipping on the rear bumper thanks to a love-tap from a fellow TJ . The steering wheel has some play due to the hex QR hub. The interior could use a respray if you're concerned about cosmetics. The car needs a few safety items to be fully race legal (padding, etc). I have not kept up with 2013+ NASA/SCCA rule changes, there may be other things needed I'm not aware of. Notes I bought the car in October 2011. I drove it in several DE weekends until I got into an accident Jan 2012 where the front passenger-side area was damaged. I had it repaired by Stuart Robinson's crew at Motorsports Development Group where they replaced the subframe, upper & lower control arms, shock, and fender. While there, I had them replace the clutch (stock), install the FCM kit w/ 99 tophats, and then corner balance and align the car. The last time it was on track was July 2012 at the TWS Instructor OTD event. The car is in great shape and was built very well. I was fortunate to meet one of Greg Lucas' fabricators at a track event and he confirmed that they had made the cage in the car. The previous owner was over 6' tall and was comfortable inside - the tubes hug the interior nicely and the seats are bolted to the floor. I'm 5'5" and I was also comfortable in the car (eyes make it just over the wheel). The car comes with 4 sets of wheels, with 2 sets having mounted tires (wheels/tires not balanced). Having come up from the AC Mays school of braking, I prefer very little bite / lots of pedal travel as per the current brake setup. Some Carbotechs can change that if you prefer the opposite. PM me here if you're interested in checking out the car. I'm in NE Houston. Pictures Paul
  8. Dang, mini reunion this weekend, thanks for the heads-up Hasta! I wish I could make it guys, my poor Miata has only been driven up and down my street since last summer. I'm getting the itch again though...
  9. Howdy all, if anyone is selling a tow hitch for a 2005 S2000 please let me know! (null)
  10. My TJ friends, unfortunately I'm going to have to bow out for this. Between using up vacation days while my family was in town and a crazy work schedule in Sept, I won't be able to make it work. Y'all have a great time!!
  11. I feel like I've been out of the game for so long. In for Saturday
