  1. So stock sway? Curious how it would handle on only stiffer springs and bilstein "oem". The spec nc mx-5 seems to be about 2300 ready to race without driver and ballast.
  2. You can, fuel might be an issue but you would manage it. You don't have any points for anything else so it would be: 400 pts base 60 pts 2.5 Swap 25 pts Header 20 pts oil cooler 0 pts ECU tune 0 pts stiff lowerings springs with Bilstein B6/B8 0 pts better radiator So 1 penalty lap. I think you have to have the oil cooler, the 2.5 seem to run hot. Other option is (2.0 NC engine): 400 pts the car 40 pts non adjustable coilovers (GC) 25 pts header 20 pts swaybar 0 pts ECU tune 0 pts better radiator 10 pts Wing or Airdam or Hubs or some extra suspension gadget For reference a 190hp E46 2.8 (m52tub28) is 500pts. So the BMW would have better PWR, they also seem to handle ok with just lowering springs. I think the challenge Miatas do 1.35s. Last chumpcar race 1.27 was the record (NA miata non ecotec) But remember that some of these chumpcar teams has awesome drivers, way out of their league 🙂 I have figured out how to go fast at H2R. Close you eyes and go WOT at turn1, turn6, turn8. At least that is where I am going 10mph slower than everyone else.
  3. I am asking 🙂 I am a crap driver, so I probably couldn't. At the last chumpcar race two NA Miatas managed to get 1.27s. They might have been VVT swapped but not Ecotec swapped. But they could have been on RE71, who knows.
  4. Hi What do you think about NC miatas in chump? They are 400pts so you could do: 40 pts gc coil overs (non adjust) 20 pts sway 25 pts header At Harris Hill it would have to do 1.28-1.29 to be competitive. Not sure about COTA, maybe 2.45? (Fastest chump was a frsnkenstein civic doing 2.42) This would be on RS4 or similar 200tw tire. (Dont think the re71 would last a race) And a good driver.
  5. Very nice! Why not use the stock harness?
  6. So you drove your chumpcar race car from Austin to Dallas? Still have plates? I used to drove my from Austin to HArris Hill, but stopped. Felt like everyone was reporting me to the police.
  7. Seems like you dont want a cool car but a good car. So what about Kia Stinger? 365hp. Cheap. I used to have a kia SUV, awesome warranty and ok quality. Cost $0 in repairs for the 3 years I had it, bought it used.
  8. If you want to start with W2W why don't you do a chump? Much cheaper, it's typically between $200-$400 an hour racing including everything but food. Maybe you can find a Miata team at H2R, those races are usually packed so lots of racing and and competing. Sure it's 100hp car instead of 400hp..:)
  9. Do you have more pictures of this car? Is it GP1 in WRL? I think I have seen it once, I said something like "Nice corvette!", someone answered "it's an opel"....
  10. CRX! Cool looking car and can be fast. Is this for track or just street? The only Datsuns you can find are 280zx, the 240/260/280z are crazy expensive. Even for a rusted shell.
  11. If you know how to wrench (or has money) the 996 could be an option. They are cheap now a days and have a back seat. Very track capable and fun at track.
  12. Hi, Looking for any thing that matches any of the below. 4x114.3, 15x9 max ET-17, 4x114.3, 15x10 max ET-30 4x100, 15x9 max ET13 4x100, 15x10 max ET0 The offsets is a max, so a 4x100 15x9 ET10 works but not ET20. Thanks
  13. Impressive! That chart is helpful, I am being way to slow into turn 1. Scared I guess...:)
  14. Hi, I am looking for a race capture pro either mk2 or mk3. Thanks
  15. Hi, The race capture pro Mk2 and Mk3 seems popular, has anyone had experience with mk1?
  16. Hi, Looking for a set of 18" wheels for my 996. Stock will do but also interested in aftermarket with local pickup. For the rear I can do 8x11 and offset down to ET55 maybe. Front is more for giving.
  17. I have a set of Traklite Burn 15x8 with 225/45/15 RS4 on them. The RS4 still have life in them but have seen some track use. If you are interested you can get the wheels and tires for $800.
  18. Hi, I have a set of Rivals that you can have if you want. Will throw them away soon so hurry. They have a few flat spots so I can't race with them. The non flatspot area has quite a lot of thread. Close to barton creek mall.
  19. South austin machine shop is cheap I heard. Precision seems popular but they doesn't seem very interested in getting new business, not great at returning calls or emails.
  20. i might have some Rival (non-s) you can have for $50 but they are mounted. There are available after 14may. I can also sell you a set of 16x6.5 Miata alloy wheels with Direzzas on. The tires are worn, rims have some scratches.
  21. You should ask H2R to add their lap wall :) Some really cool laps there, everything from vans to Cup cars.
