I'm pretty new. I have a few posts... Thought I would let everyone know where I'm coming from.
I bought my car in February. It was "backed into" in the PS front corner but it runs well and there's no rust so... Looked like this:
Started prepping for SCCA STS (DC region @ fedex field): Koni Race shocks all around and GC/Eibach 700F/450R, Racing Beat tubular front sway bar, urethane bushings, stainless brake lines, "spec miata" Bosal catback from mazda motorsports, 185/60R14 Star Specs. Replaced the damaged front bumper cover and the old trunk which had a luggage rack on it.
Started looking like this:
Got tired of getting beat real bad so I got some 7.5" 6UL and 195/50/15 Toyo R1R and fancy lug nuts:
Obsessed with DIY Aero thread mt.net = lexan air dam:
I did 24 autocross events this year that I know of and maybe a few that I didn't write down. This winter I'm getting the car ready for HPDE with some safety gear and doing some mild power mods (intake & header) which I don't really expect anything from. I also want to get it corner-weighed and add some more negative camber. I may even spring for a fresh coat of paint...
I've forsaken STS so I've removed the soft top and some carpet items and I'm thinking about getting some 15x9 6UL and a MSPNP. Next winter I hope to make some power. I'm still trying to decide between a VVT swap or a small turbo for my 1.6. Hopefully I'll spend 2014 in NASA TT with around 150hp.
Let me know how I did...
