Looks to me like the one on the left is to bust the welds on your intake.

Complete? That would compete with Factory Five's Epic rear engined tube frame 818! We here :heart: subarus too but I would prefer this miata based kit, all else being equal.

Hmm now that you mention it it does kinda look like a bottle.

BARELY PULLED THE SEMA CAR TOGETHER IN TIME. Seeing that I walked around SEMA last year with sketches of the Catfish, I think we're moving at warp speed.

Pricing will be released as soon as I have pricing from my suppliers. There will be other parts available that you can buy for your Miata that is also available for the Catfish. Cool, relevant parts.

Let me catch my breath...

Default Mystery part--5-lug hub

OK, at least one part has already been discussed--the 5 lug hub kit. We still haven't tested, so this is preliminary too. Long story short, it will allow a 5 lug hub--complete with larger bearings and 5x114.3 lug spacing. This is important for tracksters, the v8 crazies, and those looking to go wide with their wheel selection.

In the future I really prefer to have the stuff in stock before releasing information, but my professionalism has gone out the window since joining Trubo.

I think you've done well. Even Chrysler needed a copule years to build the Viper.

That said, you've basically just thrown a bunch of raw steak into a tiger pen.

Default Wet weight 1,567lbs (712kg)

One last post; we got the car back to the shop from SEMA and finally had a chance to get it up on scales for the first time. No sorting, no corner balancing, and some gas in the tank.

1,567lbs or 712kg. Not bad. How would your Miata handle if the two 300lb sumo wrestlers got out of the back seat?

So what would come with "the kit" (pricing to be determined?)

Also, I suppose this a dumb question, but what happens if it rains?
