The one I might be able to use you can run a roll through it which lets you cut as long a piece of vinyl as you can buy.

<p>Why are you running DTC30's in the rear? The only reason I'm doing that is because sport calipers. Otherwise I would run 60's all around.</p>

If the main relay fails, you can take the cover off and zip tie it "on". If you put the zip tie on semi-tight, you can slip it off when you don't want it on.

oh, and run 60s all around. I went through 30s in the same amount of time as I went through 60s up front. But rears should last 2-3 times as long.

Too late. I'll order 60s next time. Or I'll try and sell them.
<br />
<br />And awesome trick with the relay.

FWIW - I ran some heavy gauge wire with spade lugs from the main fuse block to a HD switch in the interior (mounted to a "pod" on the pass side of the center console). When my main relay flakes out I remove it, plug the spade lugs into the n/o sockets where the relay was and become my own relay (switch on, we have power - switch off, all is quiet).

<p>Had a small failure that left me stranded on the side of the road yesterday after the track day.</p><p>I had a nut fail, the one between the seat and the steering wheel.</p><p></p><p>Yep, ran out of gas.</p><p>Otherwise the track day was great. New ride height and alignment did wonders on the handling. Was a lot more neutral, still a bit of push on some corners that I didn't really like, probably just need more front camber.</p><p>3 awesome sessions, 1 shitty one. Last session of the day I took hailey out. She was bored as hell (of course <img alt="" src="http://www.miataturbo.net/images/smilies/smile.gif" title="" /> ) and I was having fun trying not to scare her. About halfway down the front straight I passed someone and saw an M5 approaching, I was pretty much at the end of the passing zone (maybe 25 yards) and he was an easy 100yds back. Thought nothing of it, until I checked my mirror right before the braking zone. He had flown up almost next to me, I watched him go into my blind spot on the right side (inside of the first corner) and basically freaked out, I thought he was going to cut in on the inside. Slammed on the brakes and went straight through the chicane. Any corner with a wall could have been bad. Might have flat spotted a tire. Had to go in because I was so angry and didn't want to be driving like that, luckily i only missed a lap.</p><p>Went over to approach the driver and he said &quot;why didnt you let me by? I was faster than you&quot; I started fuming and told him I didn't feel comfortable with the space left in the passing zone, started yelling, he then tried to deny it was him and then drove away. I reported him to the management, but doubt anything will come of it.</p><p>Otherwise, awesome day, car ran great.</p><p>greddygalant you can take mine out for a lap when I can take laz out for a lap <img alt="" src="http://www.miataturbo.net/images/smilies/smile.gif" title="" /></p>
