Got some aero in the mail yesterday... plan is to mod 2 of these foils into a single 'indy' style element. Guess we'll see how it works. Gonna have to have some sort of front downforce

considering something like this for my build. Just something a little different from the typical "eliminator" look.



So, why will you need front downforce? I dont see too many Miata running around with anything serious...

That's where i got my "idea" from - I've been saving the same caterham pic for over a year now - trying to find a cheap top mount wing has proven difficult, so gonna do it myself.
Reason I want more DF is:
1) attempt to balance the wing that's going on the back
2) reduce understeer
3) 250/300 rwhp and I want to rape c7/gt3 cups in the corners
4) it'll look stupid/cool??

The most notable reason for going with a front wing is... a splitter ain't gonna work with this contraption.

If I pulled the trigger on this, think things would actually get done? Hell no - but I'm doing it anyway in a couple weeks... they'll probably just sit in the corner like the cars, smh
Maxxis 245s ordered though!

Time to put the Lagunitas down... just freaking glad I didn't wire it this way. Do yourself a favor and pay for the pre-wired BBK from TSE and save yourself another 2 beers trying to figure out why the dam caliper won't fit to the bracket! Btw - I bolted these rings on a long time ago - never assume you were sober back then!! The lack of safety wire clued me in - I was like "I can't believe Andrew sent me this kit without wiring the ring bolts"... then realized I bought them seperate thinking I'd save a couple quarters... go figure. At least I didn't make a total *** of myself with a post asking wtf is wrong with this kit - however, it likely would've saved me 30min head scratching- beer drinking time :P

I do believe Red was the inspiration when this contraption was created

Update: Got a 3.6 R&P on the way from Greece along with bearing/seal kit from 949. Need some banjo coolant bolts for turbo and other fittings... MS3 on the way from Andrew - ****, this bitch might actually be running before the end of the year! My shop is a mess.... but, it's a shop and not a driveway so I'm happy

​​​​​​



RIP Bill Paxton...
And yes - this will be suspended by several rubberbands above my dash Coma - The Doof Warrior!
