143 peak on my 'hi power' map, equates to 138 NASA Avg.
I've never loaded it though. I ran the Supermiata S2 map all year. 139 peak and only 7000rpm, and it has already proven to do very well in ST5. The only car as fast as mine will podium, if not win Nats.

Ah, cool. Looks like my power is ballpark then, just need to cage up, lose some weight, add aero and go racing. Will be good to see how our local hot shoe former TTC / current TT5 S2k stacks up at champs. Would love to give him a hard time in a Miata. Will definitely keep an eye on your progress, but a 2000lbs miata with aero and short gearing sounds really damn fun.

6spd and 4.3 is a hoot.

The car is a rat, and my buddy Dave, the previous owner, would absolutely love its current config.

I am more excited to drive this version, than any previous version of Button, including the 2016 NASA Championship engine with the fancy OsGiken.


143whp
~2000lbs (2200 with me in it)

bunch of cool ****

New door stickers. Moarange.

Button is loaded in the trailer next to Vegas. This is my 4th trip to [email protected], and the first in which my own car will be there. I am pumped.
