To clarify, the original post was intended to illuminate the hub design prone to catastrophic structural failure, not the standard bearing failure. That's nothing new and cannot be avoided, especially when exposed to rain.
Yes understood. I was just diverting slightly to mention the Miata hub has multiple hub/bearing failure issues and the quality of the guts should also be considered when dealing with the quality of the hub assembly. the long-lasting solution to a hub/bearing potentially requires multiple fixes. First, you obtain the correct hub assembly that doesn't explode after 3 track days and THEN you have to deal with short-life bearings, of which one resolution is to buy better bearings and grease, and repack the brand new hubs.
Sorry for the digression, just trying to back up slightly and see a bigger picture.
Okay. Here is the plan. We get Rick to hire some very small people. They will be instructed say every 15 seconds to say look down the track. Then alternatively on the other 15 seconds they will say faster. When approaching every curve Brake! Then half way through every corner throttle!
that's pretty much how I do it... but I weigh 240lb.. :\
