Apparently Don from Accelerated found the first weak link: clutch failed on the first drag pass attempt. No surprise given the increase in average torque, I guess.

My understanding is that Accelerated's build is much more R&D oriented. He built the piping and exhaust with the intention of fitting everything with zero cutting, stock fuel, etc. I believe he left the clutch "just to see."

IIRC, he said he put about 200 dyno pulls, 800 miles and a lot of street passes before it finally gave up the ghost on a drag launch.

I'm sure everyone wanted to know what the clutch holds up to, so its actually a good idea that they left the stocker in there. In fact, I hope they take this approach with everything on that car. The more parts they break the more knowledge everyone will have.

I get it. I didn't know they had intentions beyond "lets make a boatload of power".

cuz **** man, I put in a 400 ft-lb capable twin plate clutch about 18 months before increasing beyond stock power levels.

Damn. I was OK with it at 200hp and 165ft-lbs, but at 300hp and 250ft-lbs I am REALLY interested.

Hopefully lots and lots and lots of people buy them, so they get to be as cheap and numerous as Miatas.

It was recently turbocharged to 400whp and did 11s in the 1/4. Stock motor.

So, I am pretty confident that the Spec Miata track record at Roebling is a 1:21.1. Jon Miller drove his FR-S from Orlando to RRR and back, swapped wheels and tires (Hoosier R6es I am pretty sure) and ran a 1:20.x. Not too shabby?

A) Faster than my car, pal. Spec Miata.

B) Some GT3s out there that weekend were running high 1:17s.

C) A guy I know with a well-prepped and very well-driven MX-2000 track car ran a 1:16.6 coasting down part of the front straight due to dB restrictions.

Just because you can drive a slow car fast, does not make them fast. It means the driver was able to overcome the governing body that forces them to be slow turds using old methods of slowness.

Same. Despite all the fanboy love and all the hater hate, my original impression of this car remains positive.
