i actually wont be racing IT2 that was last year with a stock motor, this year i will be racing ITGT, and it might create a little drag but from the reading i have been doing it was either this or to sheet everything underneath my car there is alot of drag to be lost preventing air going under your car

thats just what ive read tho, i could be wrong

Is that Home Depot landscaping trim for your front lip? I've been wanting to do the same.

Nice 3rd Gen parked out front, yours? 88-89 Iroc?

Do you think you'd benefit getting the Wilwood Brake proportioning valve?

Nice build. Blocking up the holes between the ends of the IC and spoiler should dramatically improve the IC's impact on air temps.

Prime candidate for Savington's aero treatments for the front. I do like where it's going though.

Couple of quick questions:

You state homebuilt cage...what tubing did you use and how did you get the bends done?

What was your total investment in the cage?

The proportioning vavle isn't "needed". Obviously SM doesn't allow it, and they've got great braking performance. However, if you're looking to get the best out of your brakes, the Miata does come with a little too much front bias. It's also nice to be able to switch a little rear bias off when rain racing.

Any shots of your interior? And what's the story behind Fozzy Bear? Oh, and needs moar heat shielding. WAY moar heat shielding.

this car was bulit for wcma rules, im in canada, rules are a bit diff here then scca rules.. in ITGT i will be racing againsted diff kinds of rx7's civics with engine swaps , and all that stuff

the cage used 0.95 wall tube and i bent the tube with a manual tube bender with madrels... it cost me around 1500 to bulid the cage.


i know i need some more heat sheilding around the brakes but where else do i need it?
thanks.

Still have a heater core? I can't tell. But you need it around those if you have them. Also just a heat shield around the turbo helps dramatically, whatever you do don't use a turbo blanket. Otherwise with those and insulation around the master cylinder resivoir, you should be good. Any other wires or hoses that are around or behind the turbo should be moved or protected, I see something right above where the throttle cable exits the firewall that might need to be moved. Any bigger/better shots of the engine?
