ebay brand. I dont have high expectations for performance, but the price was right.

I will be making custom perches for these so that i can get good height and i dont have any top hats for the oem shocks so i am going to make some raised height top hats to prevent bottoming out.

Planning over the last month to make this a GRM spec challenge car has paid off.

I have a direction and a plan on how to get it done.

Not much visually different, but seriously cleaned up.






What you see there is an oem miata steering wheel (non srs), all of the brackets drilled off with a spot weld bit and the pile of **** removed since the last round of pics.


I didnt have my angle grinder at my shop as it is with my honda at the cottage, so no serious weight reduction could be had. The car is almost down to the bare tub though. :mrgreen:

My plan:
Fully prepped and painted tub
8 point bolted in roll bar-to meet specification
OEM miata brake calipers and flex lines
Some sort of race compound brake pad
Corrado front rotors and sport miata rear rotors with custom adapters
RX7 clutch type rear end and axles (turbo spec)
Nissan KA24DE engine swap
Some sort of large turbo
turbo manifold made by me
through fender dentsport garage style exhaust
Some kind of suspension work.-TBD.
