Default Another new guy

Hello all!

My name is Alex and I'm from Salem, Ore. Just picked up my 2nd miata (lifetime, not current) which is a 94 torsen car. Has awesome lexus/grandpa-spec two-tone paint, but besides that is mostly a peach.

All stock right now, minus the nardi deep corn 330mm that I had laying around that I threw in. Plans will keep the car pretty mild: foamectomy for now, some sort of suspension which is the bulk of my research at this moment, and some sort of 15" wheel with 205/50 tire. Nothing too crazy until I have more money to blow.

Old miata has koni/gc setup with 550/350 rates, es busings, 1" front bar with heim endlinks. Don't think I want to do koni/gc again, so been spending time researching options. Xida/FCM stuff is gonna have to wait due to con$traint$.

I've been playing with 240s for the last 8 or 9 years. I'm on my 3rd one after I spun my last one into a guardrail :( I'd like to think I'm different from most 240 idiots (onramp accident notwithstanding) in that I don't drift or go for stance. I stick to autox and the occasional track day as budget allows.

^Current 240. Has an internally stock SR, minus HKS 264 cams, a GTX2867 turbo, powerFC and some other doodads. It's making 340whp (mustang dyno) right now, and given the stock bottom end, it'll stay there for a while. Previously had a GT2876 and couldn't be happier with the new GTX. For susp it has Koni 8610 Race stuff, custom housings (hooray mac struts...) all sphericals/aluminum bushings everywhere, some Wilwood FSL front brakes with 2-piece rotors, OS Giken 1.5-way lsd, etc etc. Just trying to establish my function>form credentials

I registered on here when I had my last miata but never posted anything so I figured I'd introduce myself. Sorry for the novel!

Its VERY refreshing to see a 240 guy not drift or stance it out. Congrats. Big respect.
