Forgot to tell you guys that a friend of mine e-mailed me a couple days ago after driving the Fuji-car. FWIW, my friend Ian is a national-caliber autocrosser and has recently begun road racing.:
"Hey man, Yeah Jimmy talked me into taking his car out to Laguna to run the
time attack. The car was a complete guess for setup as it's never really
seen a track. The seat was in the wrong position. The wing on the back I
think hurt us. We ended the weekend with tranny problems. Lost 3rd and 5th
gear. I was lucky the handling wasn't a complete nightmare as I just kinda
said... lets try these spring rates with no actual method or theory behind
choosing them. Ran a decent time of a 1:44.4 which is quicker then most spec
miata's. Doing track stuff you learn to respect the times the top spec
miata's run.... those boys are fast! Anyway had a heck of a time.
You can see all my video's on Youtube.
Here is the link to the laguna video..
Talk with ya later.
I don't particularly feel like registering with Club Roadster just to read the thread you guys are talking about, so forgive me if this is a re-post.
