this car has not gotten much love lately.. seems that a 400whp miata is realiable. so i ended up just driving and driving it all summer. no problems at all.
Redid the brake system a bit, so i could get rear bias adjustment. BIG improvement, car all of a sudden is able to stop really fast from 200kmh speeds on track. also swapped the 450lb/300lb spring combo, for 650/400, and put a stock anti roll bar in the back instead of the 16mm one. some fine tuning on the chassis, and the car is is now sweet handling.
APR gt200 wing went on the car for trackday use.

I am currently making a front splitter/undertray, brake cooling ducts, radiator ducting etc. Made from 6mm plywood, 2 layers of fiberglass canvas on both sides. Really really ghetto way of getting it smooth and flat when molding on the fibreglass tho ,but it works, and the sucker is solid Will be making some decent mounts for it next.

Our local track is getting rebuild and we end up with a track that has two straights that will let the mx5 see speeds of 230-250kmh. figuered i might need brake cooling

also upgraded my daily driver, so that one gets a bit of love too now.
