I would need 410 whp, to match that absurdflow cars power to weight ratio. I'll have half of that. Yikes.

Haha yeah. I'll probably not even break 2 minutes at laguna. I'll still have a blast doing it, though.

OMG. Just install the blower and set a laptime.

If you want maximum area under the curve, rotrex is not for you.

If you want instant spool street boost cred, rotrex is not for you.

If you want to take your real life driven hard car to the next level, Brotrex is for you.

What is important, is, at a track day, "did you drive all of it?" With a rotrex, you will, and you will for the most
part embarrass corvettes. And 911's. And, depending on the day, 911 GT3's.

There is no more reliable power adder for a hard driven miata than a Rotrex. Period. Full stop. End of Story.

Mobius, I'm as antsy as you! I have to wait on my trans to come back, then for an ecu. I'm just really bored. SOrry for all the shitty posts lately. And yes, I drive my car as hard as possible when I can. I think I'll be happy. I just am dumb, and bored, and cant help but to gossip.

MiataMan, I didn't like that the tse kit hasn't even been completed yet. I tend to wait a few years to see where a kit brakes down. I wouldn't have even done the rotrex kit, since off the shelf kits are mostly pretty poorly done, butthen I saw TDR's ROtrex kit, and all the weak points of other kits had been addressed. The rotrex itself had been proven years ago. I just happened to like TDR designed brackets. anyways...

Step 0. install safety equipment (Hard dog roll bar, and fire system)

Step 1. get trans back in.

Step 2. put new MS3 in, and pray that it works this time.

Step 3. If it does, V and I will tune ID1000 injectors to run the car naturally aspirated with little to no issues. Then we will tune the barometric pressure curves, which will take longer to test, log, and retune.

Step 4. Install Big brake kit (looking at V8 roadsters radial mount fronts, dual master, and goodwinracings version 3 rears, with OGracings help picking parts.)

Step 5. install TDR intercooler (and tse front water plug while the coolant is drained)

Step 6. install rotrex oil cooler on the drivers side and engine oil cooler on pass side, while the bumper is off for the intercooler install

Step 7. install rotrex

Step 8. tune again with V



I'll stop after completing step 2 if the trans and MS take too long to get here, that way I can still make it to MMRLS. I'll do the rest of the steps when I get back to Sacramento, probably with V, and others who show up lol.

Andrew has been doing this for years tho. So basically, he's trouble fixed every issue we would have as costomers. He just has to manufacture the tested kit now. And even if I do have an issue, I'm sure he will back his products. So I'm not stressing.

Soooooo......

I'll at least have something unique to show off at MMRLS.

Quad D2S projector bi-xenon headlights.

Gotta get that light output yo. 10000 lumens through the stock projectors without a highbeam JUST WASNT ENOUGH. maybe 8000 effective lumens.

18000 lumens with a high beam is more like it.

OK, one more then I'll stop hijacking the poor man's build thread. This was the pinnacle of Theseus, Summer of 2011, with the full 350whp on tap and enough cooling system to run full sessions in 100*F+ ambient. 7400rpm, 6-speed+3.909s, and it hits the rev limiter on the front straight at WSIR. Spins the tires for 300ft at ~95mph at part throttle cresting the hill at T6 before touching 140mph on entry to T8. Shifts so fast the 10hz TPS feed from the AEM into the Racepak wouldn't register a throttle lift (aka sub-100ms shifts with a stick and a pedal). Even today it sounds insane to me. I was 22 and built that car in my garage.

More for seeing animals running towards teh road, but yes. also, I want people to be driving towards me, oncoming traffic lane, to think to themselves, "what is that" is that a ferrari, or some other very expensive car?"

only to be sad and disheartened when the see its a teal miata.

You've already got that part, I believe it is the universal reaction to Teal miatas

Power don't mean ****. It helps, but you gotta know how to drive. I believe SM @ MRLS is something like 1:46.xx? My personal best is 1:57.03 on 4~5 year old NT-01 when I can get free of traffic. I don't get enough wheel time and I don't feel I have appropriate safety equipment so I'm not comfortable really pushing myself.

Sav- that was a hell of a car! This winter, use some of that magic on my car.

Mobius- haha, that's why i bought it! theft protection in the paint!

E02K- I'm in run group D, it was the only one open for both days. But according to the rules, it was the highest i could join, I don't have any seat time at MRLS. My exhiliration overcomes my worry of crashing, so I tend to push myself quite hard. I'll be on fresh, tire rack heat cycled A7s (or R7's, i didn't get a reply on the tire hierarchy thread) unless I cant get the blower installed, then i'll be on fresh RE71Rs.
