Still undecided about selling. Just retired and track days where I live are VERY expensive. Thinking about trying shifter karts as an alternative. I am a realist and know that track cars are difficult to find the right buyer for. I believe I followed the correct path and used the best parts, but that is my opinion. I am able to easily reinstall both OEM seats and throw on the original Enkei wheels and tires and use it as a street car, although with no PS, AC or radio installed it is not ideal. It still has the carpeted interior. I still have the heater also. Our tracks are closed from October to April due to our weather so it normally just sits. My RS3s are nearing the end of their useful life so I plan on getting Maxxis RC-1 or NT-01s in spring. Emilio recommended I use XP-12s up front (instead of my current XP-8s) and a proportioning valve so those would come with, or on, the car. I use the best fluids and change frequently. A 75mm pulley could easily be fitted to gain more HP and torque, but I was erring on the side of safety since it is a track car.

It is worth what someone will pay for it. Decide on a price and go from there. I was basically wanting to build my car up to exactly the spec you have now, so let me know your location and price in a PM, if you do get serious.

Two weeks ago my Miata was totaled in a wreck. As I sat here thinking of what I wanted to replace it with I built a "dream Miata" in my head. You've got about 90% of it right here. Do you have any pics? Location? How comfy are the seats?

Near Chicago.

Right now OEM seats are in and very comfy!! I put the race seat and wheels/tires indoors in winter and install the other set of wheels/tires. This way I have a useable street car if needed for some reason. (never have used it yet!) The race seat is very comfortable on track, not so fun on 2 hour drives to some of the tracks. My local track is 40 minutes away and that's no problem. I am 63 with a very bad back

Mostly a bunch of personal preferences

I'd rather have a megasquirt, only because I've already had a squirted car and understand it and like the power it gives you. If I was doing it I'd probably go for the c30-84, especially with a 6 speed. I'd love to have a 10 AE, I like the blue better than the yellow.

I too love the 10AE.

As much as everyone on MT hates emission legal "piggy backs" this was recommended and tuned by Ken Hill (ex Flyin Miata tuner) and works seamlessly. Starts perfectly, runs perfectly, idles perfectly. It was also fine tuned on the dyno. I have a dyno chart but don't know how to post it to Photobucket. It is a PDF
