Got a chance to get some wheel time in a classic.

Could you have kept up with the Porsche and Lamborghini that passed you if your car was dialed in and you had some seat time? Or are they just in a different class?

on the straights i could stay with them, the Porsche especially. That was a current super trofeo gt3 race car on brand new pirelli slicks. and i was on a year old set of rc-1 tires. Plus that all sorts of carbon fiber and down force #RaceCarDriverExcuses.. mines just a steel body miata with a big o motor. once we got to a braking zone they where gone.

Ah, I see. Were you conservative with the throttle? It didn't seem like you floored it but a few times.

you need to be gentle. It has a lot of power on tap. Even if you're not busting tires lose it can easily overheat the rears. Once they get hot it can take a lap to cool back down. easy throttle on, use the torque. back when i autocrossed my 1.6L i would "clutch it" coming out of corners. MX trick try to speed it up a little. lol
