If anyone wants a winning SM, we can build you a tub up car for $20k.
You and Savington are lying ****** and I'm pretty much over it. Oh, and its typical to see SM's go for over $20k out here, especially in Oklahoma.

Right, and I'm sure you have first hand experience like I do.

Seriously?!!!

I thought claimer rules are in effect. If there's a dispute, they give you $2500 or whatever, and you have to give up your motor.

No claimer rules. New pro-built motors are usually about 6k or 7k, plus any installation and tuning you have them do afterwards.

Reading all the above... And I thought motorcycle racing was expensive. Holy crap! And you are still in a vehicle with relatively weak acceleration. I do not think I will be going Spec Miata racing anytime soon.

True, but I think all this talk of high dollar motors & builds are for the guys who are running up front. I still think it would be fun to build up a car using a stock junker motor. With fields of 40-50-60 cars you'll still have people to mix-it-up with.

Local Spec driver uses his 90 he built himself, swaps out junkyard motors as needed. Usually qualifies in the top 20 and finishes in the top 10. Got an invite to the Nationals last year until National pulled a fast one and overruled the Divisions rankings.
