  1. I have checked up on the Miata and it is ready to go.
  2. I signed up for MSRH in early February. The Miata has new radiator. I am looking forward seeing old friends and meeting new friends.
  3. In the pit area they concluded the most entertaining thing about the weekend was watching me get out of the Miata. Apparently the combination of height , weight and age has reached some type of track apex rarely if ever seen before.
  4. For the second time in my ownership the Miata made all 8 sessions of my HPDE event. The new brakes worked perfectly and I was generally more focused on driving and less worried about the car. I had one off but was able to navigate back to the track under the cars own power. Of particular note this car has very little power and consequently some of the high speed turns required little or no braking. It much more like driving go cart at track 21 where you focus on saving every single ounce of momentum in every corner and resign yourself to little or no acceleration. It is a sad state
  5. I just put a set on last month. I am probably good till 2035 based on general lack of brake use in my current driving style.
  6. Thank you for the information. The pair I wore out are Simpson. I like them so I will just get another pair . I am so proud of myself for wearing out my race shoes!
  7. Next event for me is probably in February at MSRH. Perhaps before then I will find the funds to replace the 15 year old koni yellow struts. I hope Santa thinks I was a good boy this year. On the rather strange list of things that I have worn out, I somehow managed to wear out a pair of track shoes. The left sole is shredded!
  8. I had a great weekend. The weather was perfect. I knocked a few seconds off my lap times. I met some new friends and basically had fun.
  9. That sounds like a great combination of work and fun. I have been much less focused on working on the car and more focused on a simple set up and working on my driving skills and seat time. I need drop my lap times another 10 or 15 seconds before I need fix a on the car.

  11. I wonder if everyone else has these extensive pre track rituals.
  12. I also checked to see how much gas was in the tank. It is full. Tonight I will hitch up the flat tow bar. It looks like a nice weekend for track activities .
  13. I went out and tried to start the car. It started! Ready for track day tomorrow.
