Was not me. This car has never been on Hwy 6, towed or otherwise. Don't own a car cover, either.

Weighed the car this am. Looks like the cage added just under 60 lbs...better than budgeted. Total weight here is with hardtop but w/o seat, dash/cluster or HVAC. Our spreadsheet shows that adding those will mostly be cancelled out by other weight savings items...though aero will cost us. Current estimate is 2070 for Phase 1 build.

Painted the cage in advance of the lexan windshield install.

How much weight saving with windshield?
Any downsides?
Scratching, safety, or water tightness?

Update time...

10 lb Kirkey seat is in. We bought this one two sizes too big and will be filling with Space Shuttle foam for easier transits. This will remove one more item from our daily prep ritual that we did for the CRX (race seat in/out). Seat back brace is a modified Kirkey piece bolted to a weld-on ButlerBuilt roll bar attachment. The latter also serves to locate the harness shoulder belts.

Dash swap mostly done. Massive weight savings. Targa Miata inspired "half dash" using a salvaged NA dash we got for free. Had to fix a bunch of cracks (epoxy + roofing flashing), but it's pretty solid now. Meter hood crumbled in my hands, though. So bought a new one. Will finish the center section once I put the HVAC parts back in (which is waiting on the new intake manifold).

Oh, and those aluminum spacers are lowering blocks for the steering column since the seat is on the floor.

Soon, but not yet. While strong, they are temporary, heavy and ugly (perf steel angle from HDM). Will be replaced by better stuff once I verify seating position.

Behold the new hotness...

These are the latest generation, highest option SuperMiata XIDA's by 949Racing, built to spec by Hanchey Vehicle Tech using Tractive components. They are 3-way remotes with Active Controlled Electronics (ACE). Read about them here: Hanchey Vehicle Tech and here: Hanchey Vehicle Tech.

Big thanks to Emilio at 949 and Brian at HVT for making this happen.

That's best answered by Emilio. There is sponsorship at work in my purchase, in exchange for engineering feedback and promotional consideration . These are essentially prototypes , which is why they are not yet listed on the 949 site.

The current top-shelf ones on the website are $4700 double adjustables, and there's a $1300 option to get them to triple-adjustables. These have more techy goodies aside from that as well, so consider $6k as a starting point...

Can you comment on what parameters the little black box uses for dampening adjustments? I see some orientation arrows on the label that leads me to think there are accelerometers present. Also are there any user adjustable parameters?

I'm not expecting anything as advanced as GM's magnaride system but just the ability to up compression at the front and rebound at the back under braking would be HUGE.

To be honest, I am still coming up to speed on it myself. Rather than say what I *think* is going on, I'd rather report back when I am certain. At the moment, they are back in the box awaiting a couple of attachment pieces.

Braking news!

The latest SuperMiata (949 Racing) front BBK with 11.75x.81 directional rotors, Wilwood 4-pot Dynalites, and V8 Roadsters hats & brackets. Finished off with braided lines, Carbotech pads and ARP extended studs. only 2lbs pounds lighter, but LOTS more thermal capacity. This is very similar to what we successfully ran on the CRX.

Working on the rears now...
