I see a decent amount of cheap power to be unlocked in an exhintake swap and adjustable camgears.

Default Now with pics and timeslips!!!

Sorry it took so long to get these on here. Work sometimes gets in the way of play.

Troy's Miata winds up quick and launches strong. It's really fun to watch and sounds really frenzied and pissed off when it leaves. I'm glad I was there to see him break Fuji's record.

Here's the car:

And the driver! No, he doesn't need to go to the gym to go faster.

Haters can hate, but he was faster than some turbo cars out there on his dual sidedraft carburetors.

Sorry the pics are so bad. All I had with me was a very old point and shoot camera that lives in my truck.

And for reference, I looked up published quarter mile times for a whole list of cars. He is faster than all C4 Corvettes but the ZR-1, base C5 Corvettes, all Z-28 Camaros and Trans Ams ever built, all Mustang 5.0s, Audi A4 turbos, and all non-M BMWs and most M BMWs that were on the list. For reference: http://www.exoticcarsite.com/0-60-qu...mile-times.htm

Good job, Troy!

Edit: And so you know, a lot of it is the driver. He's very in tune with what he's doing. And his gear shifting is ridiculously fast when you hear it trackside. He's good.

Congrats man. It's great to see a fellow n/a guy throw down those kind of numbers. Really gives me some motivation!

I wish my pictures weren't so bad. It looks like the rear end squatted about an inch and a half and the front end came up an inch or more when you launched in one picture. That is judging from the top of the tire to the fender.

I only bring this up because you were talking about limiting rear suspension travel during your launch when we were out there.

If it squated just that much, that would be acceptable. It would be nice to get video next time, to see what I need to do to get the rear to work right.

I think there is a transmission in my future. I am hearing some kind of humming noise. It adds a nice touch of driver ambience.........and fear.
