and no, if you read my previous post you would know why i thought that, but apparently it does happen if the desire to race is there and the deep pockets aren't.
The preferred differential for Spec Miata is still the clutch-type. While it is true that many national and regional drivers are upgrading to the 99+ TORSEN type differential as allowed by the 2007 General Competition Rules published by the SCCA there are still several top level teams that will swap out the clutch type for track specific needs, and various events where the .1 - .2 s/lap difference makes a difference. The torsen is heavier (markedly) and a bit "slower" but much more reliable. Very few, if any, competitive drivers are using a welded open diff. Not only is it slow, it is not legal as per the GCR. For the record I do not believe the open differential is technically legal either, but it's so damn slow no one would care if you used it, and I did for several years when funds were limited.

and yes we are pretty amusing although not nearly as amusing as u mormons!
i'm sorry i meant to say ''morons''. whateva, same thing. then again, i'm from michigan, but i got down here soon as i could!
So quick to assume every person in Utah is Mormon, huh? Ever think some people move here because skiing is 25 minutes away, and we have one of the best tracks in the country http://www.millermotorsportspark.com/??
That would be like me saying that maybe you do fit in with the ignorant monkeys that screw sheep down there!! Although I am a "Mormon" and some of them are morons, I tend to refer to most of them as Utards. I didn't grow up here and neither did my girlfriend, if we get married we would move to a more coastal climate.
