I've been on this forum for about a year and a half and have never really posted any pics of my car. My miata is a '94. It has 125,000 miles on it and has a very strong engine.
Since I got my car in December of 07, I knew that it would be a dedicated track car. The car is street legal, but I only ever drive it to and from the track. In the DFW area, we have Motorsport Ranch and Eagles Canyon. Both tracks are within an hour and a half from me. I go to Hallett at least once year and that's about 4 hours away. I've made alot of changes to the car in the last month.
This is where the car stands right now:
Matte Black 15x9 6uls w/ 225/45/15 NT01's

With all the mods you've made it's still a momentum car. You learn really good track habits driving something like that. When you get tired of putting around everything's in place to support some real power. Put another 100+ HP to the wheels and really tear up the track!
Here's some video of my car from 2 weekends ago at Eagles Canyon. My first time at this track and I got the opportunity to instruct. Video is of the last instructor session of the day. Thomas Hiromoto is in the black MX5 in video 1 of 2.
All of my lap times were 2:12.xx with my fastest being a 2:12.40
Updates: I've been in the process of changing/upgrading alot of parts on the car for preference and TX miata challenge.
I had to sell parts off of the car to afford to purchase the new parts.
The parts that came off the car were:
Sparco Fighter seat in Red with custom seat bracket
Sparco R345 steering wheel
TDR Dog Pack
Monsterflow Carbon Fiber intake kit with heatshield and K&N filter
Flyin Miata single tip catback
Here's what the car has looked like for the last month:
I'm swapping a 1.6 dash into the car because it's light and I like the way it looks compared to my "California half dash/dashpod". If competition in TXMC is so close that I need to lose some weight, I can remove it with 3 screws and a bolt.
I'm running the vital gauges for my car since it's n/a: Water temp, 02 and Oil Temp. I mounted the gauges in the panel and made a plug and play wiring harness for them to make installation/removal simpler.
Thanks to CSpence for the gauge panel. The quality, fit and price were perfect!
