One of the more popular Corvette tuners is England Green.

They were the closest to my office. Gave him a call, sounds like a very friendly guy. Dropping it off to him today.

Great news. The car came with an MGW short throw shifter, but the top half was the MGW, and bottom half was the stock box plate. Mixing and matching was making it really hard to shift. They threw a factory C6 shifter in and its shifting like butter now. Thanks for the reference Lobster.

On a side note, I've been driving the Vette around to work and home. The amount of power this car has compared to the lawn mower Miata is ridiculous. I feel like I'm going to have to relearn how to drive.

Took the Corvette out to MSR Houston today. The car is a ton of fun, but I think I've been spoiled by the Miata! Street tires, factory suspension, and factory leather seats gave me no grip inside or outside the car.

I'm no where near used to the amount if power the Corvette makes. I spent most of my sessions locked in 4th gear just figuring out the new braking zones. I didn't want to dump too much more into this car, but looks like I'll need a fixed seat, square wheels and tires, and at minimum shocks from the C6 to give me a bit more confidence. 

Or I can buy my Miata back 😂

Down the rabbit hole I go!

Well that didn't last very long. The Vette is sold!

Took the Vette our for a few track days. The car was fun, but I really missed the Miata everytime I was on the track. Something about driving the Miata as hard as you possibly could was a lot more fun than the Corvette, even if the Miata was doing slower lap times. The guy I sold my Miata to was also in the market to sell. Figured I can buy it back and get back into the Miata scene. 

Good news is, I sold the Vette. 

Bad news is, he's already parted out the hard top, roll bar, harnesses, wheels, and coilovers. So buying back my old Miata is out of the picture. Now I'm sitting without a toy. 

Back in the market for a track ready Miata/s2000/etc. Something in that light weight category that's fun to drive balls out. Keep me posted if anything catches your eye.

Welcome back (soon) to Miata paradise! Yours are the same reasons (including consumable cost) I sold my c5z and got into a Miata.  Good luck on the hunt for a car, Cabowabo's setup looks pretty awesome.

Saw this pop up on MT the other day: https://www.miataturbo.net/cars-sale-trade-6/95-miata-seattle-xida-blackbird-fabworx-flyin-miata-etc-101021/
