I promised my wife many years ago that when I got another uncontrollable urge for a motorcycle I'd get a Miata instead. Four years ago it happened!
Always liked yellow cars, so I found this Sunburst up in Portland on Auto Trader, flew up and drove it home. Been modifying ever since.
As you can see, my first efforts were more form > function. Wish I had know then what I know now - learned mostly from lurking on forums like this one. The FCM suspension 425/300 F/R is OK, wish I had 700/400 now. Double Hoop Maxx is OK, would be far better for track and twisties with Blackbird Fabworks with door bars, 14 x 7 RPF1 should be 15 x 8 Kosei C4M or something light weight like that. Interior should be Kirkey Pro-Drag with custom padding, and on and on it goes!
Don't get me wrong - I love everything about my car. It is so cool that changes are easy (except for money!) and we have so many options with dedicated Miata guys like FM, 949, Goodwin, FCM, and so many more.
I love track days, and I run with a group in the Bay Area who loves fast driving in the twisties of Northern California, and there are many! My goals for the car now are to get it as light and fast as I can and still be able to DD anywhere. Don't mind discomfort, and now firmly believe in Function > Form. Still need lots of information and always will be looking to improve my Miata. Ken
