Default Trackspeed Engineering - still around?

I was hoping to purchase a set of their na chassis splitter mounts but I'm not receiving a response via email? I messaged sav directly as well.

Andrew is revising his business model, scaling back on the time consuming aspects. He is still reachable but no longer a cornerstone of the Miata vendor community he had become. Also no 24/7 on call the way he has been for the last decade or so. Buy what you need from him right now.
Might not be available in 6 months. Not sure what his future plans are but selling Miata parts will no longer be central to his daily life. Life goes on eh?

I had a feeling something like this was happening . The site is looking quite bare these days, and my emails have gone unanswered, I had to spend money with Fab9 instead.

I guess we've just got to be grateful for all the knowledge he's accumulated and passed on to the community. He's a big part of why track turbo miata's are as reliable as they are now.

He is slowly transitioning out of the miata scene to raise cats on his small ranch in California breeding and training stray cats.

Pretty much. The long and short is that I live in Silicon Valley, and tangential to that fact, I was offered an opportunity that couldn't be passed up. I'll still be around in an enthusiast capacity, and certain products will be available through certain channels (some direct dropship, some through competent and qualified dealers), but if you need something fast, I would strongly advise you look elsewhere for now. If you need spares or have questions, email is the right way to get ahold of me, but I'm also ******* around in Europe at the moment and really not paying attention to much of anything, so even that will require some patience.

Ugh. I have been trying to place an order for 2 weeks. Missed the announcement / product release and saw the setup on my friend's car at the last race. Wonder if they'd be willing to share the files to have them cut at BlueSaw (or something similar.)

*EDit: not in a rush any more but would love to work with you if you have any of these left. (Emailed a couple weeks ago.)

Sounds fun, any bits of Europe in particular? Doing any trackdays or stuff over here?

Awesome. Enjoy! Definitely rent a Swift or something. If you're still there on Saturday, a good friend of mine is going and I'm sure would be happy to take you for a lap in his Raeder Motorsport Megane.

Also definitely get a taxi lap. I rode in the Apex Schirmer M3 taxi last month, it's awesome, but there's no bad choices.

Not gunna lie, that sucks. Sure hope the manifold/DP are around elsewhere for when I decide to stop being an idiot and build a miata the right way.

The sale of Acamas had me puzzled.

Turbo bits will remain, available through dealers later in the summer. BBKs, radiators, and fuel pump rewire kits will remain as well.

Have a look at the Ringfreaks website, their E36 is a good ring toy.
The swift from R4R being easier to drive/learn the track.

Nice, I got lucky then. I booked their E90 325i for the entire day. Supposed to be a fully caged VLN V4 car. It's also a proper track day with Pistenclub, not a tourist day. Open session from 9:30am to 5ish. I schlepped all of my racing gear across the world on 3 different flights as well, just to make sure I would be comfy. I get one shot to do it right so i made sure to make it count

What about Inconel studs? I placed an order last week, I'd rather give you my money over giving it to FM

Still available for now, will likely head to dealers soon. If you've ordered from the site thus far, and your order was processed, you'll get what you ordered direct from us.
