Broke another lip, ordered another r lip to go above the splitter( miata was mad at me cause we went to a vw show, payback). Also I did order my Bikini top on 8/30 still no update on order just says paid on their website. I am hoping that it comes in soon since we have the Staggered Show on the 9th. I also ordered Moss Miatas window delrin bushings so we will throw those on. My newest interest is in the R Theory V1 Rear Diffuser so ill be ordering that soon to put on over the winter. Heres a pic with the Miata and Evo in the shop off my buddies instagram

Not worth a picture since the only one i took was of the bushing. Recently i replaced the window guides from MossMiata. I cant say how much i love these. I wouldnt have known that the bushings were broken in half and not where they should be, with the new ones installed it gives the crank a nice firm feeling as well as removing alot of over bump noise! For the $20 with tax these were they were well worth the time. Little update Monday Project G said the top would be shipping out Tuesday or Wed. as of today still no update but im really hoping it comes in before next weekend so i can have it for Staggered. If any of you guys are going id love to meet some people on the forumn.

What a weekend.
So for starters bikini top finally came in, got that all put on. yesterday we went to Staggered, couple notes on a turbo miata with not good wet tires.
Do not be doing 75 and down shift to third it will break free and go sideways on the highway. Luckily i was not driving otherwise this post would probably be going differently. Besides that it was awesome and luckily Justin is a much better driver than I am. The show was rain all day which wasnt too fun. Fourtunatly they had an indoor show so we spent most the day inside. I got to meet Robert with the drift miata, saw him slide which was awesome and we talked for a bit really cool guy! Heres to the pictures

Almost my least favorite time of year... Time to get the miata ready for storage. Its been a fun couple months, I'm in love with the turbo setup and can gladly say 6k miles with not a single issue. Now its time to start prepping for storage and I've made a list for next year that includes:
Singular hood vents
V1 Rear diffuser
newtires (205 or 225)
beefing up the struts and springs to fm's koni kit
and what ever else may come.
Heres a few pics from recent one includes my brothers Gen.

They don't have a bilstien kit. It would be billies and then just put FM springs on them. Do they no longer have the Tokikos for the NA?

Koni's are ****. Do not get them. I love the Tokico/FM Springs combo on my DD. It is about the best DD setup I have used short of my Xida's.

I just bought the FM1 suspension combo with the Tokico shocks they sell. Was worth every penny. I have ran well over half a dozen suspension setups on miata's over the years. The Tokico shocks are the best DD ones I have driven. My xida's on my other car are "better", but in a different way.

I wouldn't call the knois ****. They ride better than a slammed miata on racelands at least. That said, having ridden in other miatas with bilstiens and BC coil overs, they are.... Eh, ok. Same for autocross and track, they work, but are very much not worth the premium price. (Good thing mine were used and dirt cheap).

Well its getting close to the time of the year to put her away. Since ill be doing new suspension and tires for spring no need to put her up on stands. We did however decide that if we are gonna go with wider tires why let these ones go to waste? Happy Monday Everyone!!

Do I get bonus points for it being a dick?
Justin had fun doing this burnout we were weary earlier in the season not wanting to break anything and have it down but honestly this car does great. I couldnt be more happy with how far this build has come and how reliable everything has been. Cant wait for next year!
