I really do hope you can get a video of the race. That would be fantastic.

DOH! OK I'll STFU. I wonder how many NT-01s Nitto would sell if they offered a 245+/45/15"? Surely the Miata cannot be the only customer...

that's awesome! are you gonna run the limited class? you should. i think the only thing you would have to do is pop your dash back on. you should be able to dominate that class. i wouldn't turn up the boost unless you need to. you don't want to risk breaking something unless someone's on your ***. (time wise)

good luck man, get a bunch of video. borrow someone's gopro for an outside rear shot or something.

i would want 245/35/15 or 245/40. 45 series would be too tall in that width. but yeah, i would buy some for sure.

Site shows that Matt Andrews competed in the limited class last year. Is he competing again this year?

No winning required. Anything but last is respectable and something to be proud of.

Good news! Put everyone in they're place, please! Everyone I ever talk to about my miata is always like, "It must be quick, but -- is faster" or "-- would handle better".....this will be a concrete data for my case when someone has something to say about it, lol!

very cool. Look forward to seeing you there. My miata isn't much different from last year, so, we'll see what happens. There has been a *lot* of evolution in the rwd time attack field this year - your car included. I think our biggest competition will be a couple forced induction S2000s. And I think Evasive will have a NA s2k out there.

Hopefully we can put 2 miatas on the podium.

Team MER (Playboy MX-5 Cup championship winning team, Koni Challenge team) will have a new MX-5 in MOD RTA next year. Should make things interesting, and pretty entertaining.
