So that's where all that understeer came from.

Could also be from a shitty laser alignment - it's in my plans to get Iron Canyon's alignment kit to do my own alignment. I did find the jam nut backed all the way out from my drivers rack joint, which could have allowed more toe +/-

Soon as I can, I'll check alignment... but come in the fall, it'll be a diffferent car. Will keep updates posted!

I hate watching cars I just passed in the mirror. It always makes me over-drive a corner or two later if they were hard to pass.

You suck cause you're trying to hand over fist control it. Just open your hands and let the wheel spin. Grab the wheel when it reaches a little bit of an angle, probably half the steering's rotations. This does it for me every time. It goes too fast for me to keep up.

lol Mark - I let Sandro go b/c I just got out on track, want to warm things up a bit - he had NOTHING special in it.

My sideways action through 5 was induced by a failed rev match into 2nd with a lot of rear bias in a heavy brake zone - the vette creeping up might have also played into the equation But yeah, I really need to let go of the wheel more like I mentioned above... I have this control problem you see, I don't have any!

Not with a blown HG! Next time you see me I'll be rocking the 1.8 AF setup, but that may take months with new ecu and clutch to order and install, not to mention finishing the forged 1.8

Here's that vid just for Collin... no turbo fur you!



And, most of you might notice that minty-green turbo of Nickt93... he happily hooked me up with that Begi IC and Synapse valve for the track car - which after this weekend, REALLY wish I had ready. This course screams miata!

Nice to meet you finally Bryan! That was an awesome weekend - took the IS300 out today and was 1 second off my best time in the Miata. AMP is fantastic - looking forward to getting out there again.

Good thing you weren't right behind me Nick! Here's the spin - snap-steer sucks, especially at that transition from a right to left hander.

Just FYI Nasa is having an event at AMP in October. I and Gryff are planning on going. You all should come out also. We all need to enter the halloween costume contest as Gay hair stylist spec miata drivers.
