Are you going to keep the sticker? I took mine of and i think it looks much cleaner. The flames are a little over the top for me.

I had to put a ground control sticker on mine because everyone kept asking me how I liked my teins after the last miata track day.

I talked to Tom at bethania, he says anything lower then sport is not SCCA certified or some such.

Also in terms of height of the bar its HC>HCHT>Sport>ACE-Deuce etc.

Just some info.

Tubing on the sport is only 1.5", SCCA says that for the weight 1 3/4" is needed. Which is what the hardcore uses. I would assume NASA and other bodies are similar.

SCCA doesn't certify anything, they have specs that a roll bar/cage must be built to.

For NASA depending on weight of the vehicle depends on size and thickness of the pipe. all miatas for nasa spec is 1.5" by .90 wall thickness. Generally if its over 3k lbs its 1 3/4 and .90 wall thickness.....
