suspension loaded-up in 10. Does this mean I need more spring?

This is an extreme case of suspension loading at the bottom of a hill, on the way up

John helped me take the skirt off. After that I was taking #1 in 5th, #6 in 4th, and #10 in 4th. That car carries so much more speed now, especially over the bumpy stuff.

I never added any oil the entire weekend, the car was rock-steady. I have a little soot on the CHRA so I'm going to take the turbo out tonight and check the bolts.

I may not know what I'm missing, but it feels incredible. Its soo easy to drive, and I can get on the gas so much earlier than before.

Remove a wheel and look inside the wheel arch. Is is scrubbing? If not you're OK. Body roll is OK in a Miata as it creates dynamic camber. This is not McPherson crap that needs 5* static to make any mid corner.

How fast are you going through the left hander thats after the straight with the start/finish?

Trying to get a perspective of the speed, difficult to tell. Seem quick though, glad you like your new setup.

No less than 75, no more than 82mph or so. The video doesn't give that corner justice, it requires full commitment.
#8 is also very scary, you have to commit on turn in for the left to properly hit the right corner. I still have not gone through there at the limit, and probably never will.

Sport master cylinder installed with the sport booster:

Make sure to get the lines from the spot master to the prop valve because its easy to bend them into place for the retrofit. Pedal takes much less effort to stop now and feels more firm.
