Emilio put me on to this forum today, and i have to say its been fun reading posts (so far, mostly about tires and weight loss)
I'm really too big for the Miata, but my bucket list got checked for racing license and a handfull of wreck (I mean Spec) Miata races in a rented car. Of course I had to buy one, just a DD, not race car,...whoops!
I'm yet another idiot who should have bought rather than build, but it's too late now, I MUST, PUSH, FURTHER!!!
At least I was bright enough to learn road racing means running out of talent often has nothing to do with you the driver, but rather the backmarking red misted douchebag that thinks large breasted umbrella girls await his two lap down, 37th place finish. My outlet has become Track Days and AutoX.
So, what's an NA guy doing here? I can already see where we can share on weight loss, tires and set-up. I'm sure there's more.
Here's my car when it had a sickly 3rd owner M45 and a whopping 135whp. Not much power, but handled like a gem and allowed me a few TTOD's.
Here's a lovely GTL car. It has the same F-Production cage/windshield/A-pillar chop I'll soon have (for reference FP 1.6 naturally aspirated cars are roughly 8-10 seconds faster than spec miatas on a two + mile course, not sure how much faster the GTL cars are):
