What is that? Adaptor to run the newer go-no go sensor, along with the old real variable sender?

no, I have a 1.6 car so that is the good sensor. They like to break the adapter fitting during the blue moon, so I had them make something to prevent that. I'm really, really, really trying to learn from previous abject failure in my life so I never have to work on this car again. I want to be able to run the NASA TT at Hallett in Tulsa this year, then drive back to my supermodel girlfriends who await the return of their champion in my Dallas mansion.

Its part of my dream to become a checkbook racer, and score a russian bride.

Make that Russian twins and you've got something!

Looking forward to seeing what that thing does when Tim's done.

It will be just like every other car that comes out of their shop. I don't see this car as anything special...just another 250whp turbo miata. How many FMII's and begi s1-5 cars are running around? Hundreds.

Now, I think very few people chose the track as psychotherapy and release their childhood anger at an HPDE or TT.

I'm glad you paid extra for the broom handle hood prop, that piece is mint.

the broom pole doubles as a jousting lance / spear. I guess I should probably convert to a trident.

if you end up going with a hood prop, I'd spend the extra money for a dual cylinder setup if it fits, my single black one (I think from that raven place) is a little strong and actually lifts the corner of the hood behind the headlight cover when it's latched.

How do you figure, ----? The fiberglass hood is the same weight, if not slightly heavier than a stock hood, and it has bracing. The TDR hood lift kit mounts at the stock metal hinge.

they'll bend the hood. Lots of classic camaro owners have that problem because the spring in the hinges and latch up front makes the middle bow out.
