yah I'm missing it pretty bad right now with all the problems the miata is giving me. It'll all be worth it in the end though.

So how quick were these 240s? Curious to get some comments on how the two cars compare.

They (s13 and miata 1.6) run ITA (SCCA club road racing). The 240 was proving dominant, but now that the same guys are developing the Miata, it's looking as though it may still be even quicker than the 240.

that video was excellent- some close racing with good cars. What turbo and boost for the 13s?

Thanks There's a bunch more videos of it. Just search video.google.com for my username, SloS13.

I was running a Turbonetics t3/t4 60-1. 14psi. It had a crap tune on it. With good tires and a better tune it probably would have been a 115mph mid 12 car.
