I love shot #2

Sevan, that's nothing compared to 12 year old stock springs....



Even on the middle perch with koni's tightened up I ordered FM springs the next week.

Canadian CSP. Much more inline with SM/2. Our classing rules are retarded, I've been pushing our region to move to SCCA rules, hope it happens in the next year or so.

As for body roll ... no, not a lot. Ground control at standard miata rates, could be stiffer. I wouldn't mind a larger front bar and stiffer front springs. Maybe next year.

that body roll isn't bad. your dynamic camber curve looks like it's holding its own...

it's fun to watch cars on track that aren't lowered and see the inside rear at full droop with about a 6" fender gap.

it's not the BODY roll that bothers me.


It's the way the sidewall of the tire leeeeeeeeeeans over under cornering force.


edit: pzero nero summers are not track tires.

Ya I've got 215's stretched over a 8" wheel. If you look straight on you can see the wheel sticking out past the rubber. Next year it'll be a 225/50/13 hoosier.

how about I just run tires with a firm sidewall instead of that crap. I sold those tires with like 2000 miles on them. by april 2005 I had already tracked a set of the new azenis with fantastic results.

Yes, yes I am. I figure that with enough abuse they will be ground down and will no longer rub.

It's actually only the passengers side that is rubbing. There is already about 1/8" missing.
