I have
I'm still awaiting my roll-bar mount but I doubt I'll receive it before the event.
So, I'm just going to mount it to the top of the windshield. I'm going to try to take datalogs too.

Maybe I should tune rich for flames?

How many runs did you get, if normal auto-x is just jerking off, that was kind of like staring intensely at the bulge in your pants with your hands at your sides. Lol.

If normal auto-x is jerking off, does that make wheel-2-wheel racing like having sex?









With a woman?

Everyone got 5 runs. Yeah really short courses. I suppose the next best thing would of been going to Sebring. Or drift the **** out of it at Desoto.

Yeah, that site is small, but sites in this area of Florida are hard to come by so we take what we can get. The site we hold most events at is a dead runway at Hernando County Airport. Usually a slalom fest, but much longer runs and way more grip to be had.

It's still loads of fun and being on a set of $250 DD tires I didn't expect much for time.
Yeah I have yet to run at the Brooksville events, but from what I hear of the other guys getting into 3rd gear sounds like it may be more suited for me. I had to stay in 3rd the whole time at that last event to get a decent time. Power range of the MSM turbo, as most know, is just.. dafuq?
How they managed to make such a slow spooling small turbo I dunno.. and inefficient as well.. must be holes in the blades... or housing.

SPC is always a 2nd gear course for me (6speed, but still n/a). At Brooksville I always use 3rd, downshift for the turnaround and then back into 3rd on the way back down the runway. Loren bounced my car off the rev-limiter in 3rd at a PCA event at Brooksville a few months back . Tampa Bay Downs occasonally requires 3rd, depends on course design.

What rear end do you have?
Haha, yeah Loren tends to be able to push a car to its brink.
Never went to a Tampa Bay Downs event, FAST host those?

Well, I went to the Monday Miata Surf Shack meet and I though I'm pretty close to this "Patterson Rd" that I've heard so much about.
So, I decided since I was in that area tonight that I'd go check it out after I left the Miata meet
Wasn't disappoint.

My brakes were so faded at the end.
Sorry, cellphone video.

Car looks/sounds good, and that road looks like a blast!

What's up with the beeping?

Stupid seat belt warning. Seems to beep anytime I get close to redline.

Update:
Still waiting on 3" pipe for exhaust.

I want to hit up "Tail of the Gecko" That's east of the Tampa area.
I'll bring my GoPro then though. Still waiting on my rollbar mount too :/


Side note,
With all the 2jz Miatas popping up. I'm question what I'm doing with my life.

Yeah. I guess they don't make 3" mandrel bends as often as I thought.

Eventually I'll get the magnaflow muffler. But for now it'll be open downpipe.

Only a matter of time now.
Bends are in.
I finally got paid for the hit and run by the "persons" insurance company.



Yet I've been thinking of selling the car. Or engine.
