Probably not since the #1 lap time is #2 internet pop. Its a weighted percentage with race placement being 75% of the total.

-It would increase my tire budget by something like 700%
Are you sure that they won't fit with the 15x9 6UL?
If you use 10" or 10.5" wide wheel you'll have to hack, but with 6UL you might need just fender pull with fender roller?

The trick is a round magnetic. No sharp edge to fold up and catch the breeze. The oval one I use on a few cars sticks just fine over 100.

But anyway, Sav's car deserves a proper vinyl number. I'm thinking chrome..

Oh and, JC's car probably had over 100K into it two years ago when it was a street class car.

Gotta keep at it. The STI and Corvette are both starting to see some action. Sav's way ahead but a couple vette or subie boards could change that in just a day or two.

wtf is up with the Corvettes roof hump? The pictures of the driver don't seem like he'd hit his head otherwise, plus if his head really does sit up there, obviously not gonna be protected by a roll cage/bar.

Voted again.

You guys have seen Tom Barrett, right? The guy is like 6'9 and 350+lbs. He did the hump so his helmet would clear the roof, and that's with a Kirkey leaned back and bolted to the floor of the car.

Good luck Andrew!

I voted for you. Should be interesting to see what happens. The folks at Octane report don't really think miatas sell magazines or drive website hits, but hopefully the overwhelming response form the community gets you to SEMA. I gotta think regardless of what they do with SEMA that you will get an invite to SLB.

Looking forward to having another miata on the podium. I'll vote again tomorrow.

Has there been a thread started at mnet where there's a little more traffic? Granted the voting portion is pretty much in the bag, it still couldn't hurt.

I have to write it in a specific way to make it fly there, and I just haven't gotten to it. Maybe tomorrow.
