I'm in for unlimited. Won't be much competition, but I'm still in for a good time. I look forward to being out there with you guys and learning as much as I can. You learn the most from being around people who are better. Maybe if I turn the boost up to 11 I can keep up, lol

i'm sure you'll be pretty fast, and will be getting faster as the series goes on.
that's my goal. trying to set it up to where we will be revisiting a track we run early on for the season finale. that way people can see what kind of improvements were made over the course of the year.

FYI probably not going to make this one guys. Too much going on at work to get the car ready in time and get to the race. MSR-H is a fun track so have a good time. Watch your oil gauge in the carousel

Don't you have two Miata's? Bring the one that runs. Or borrow someone's Miata.

We must have a show of force for this first one.

(That's my illustration of a 'show of force')

They are both offline. One has the engine sitting in the garage (the turbo) and the other is sitting on jacks waiting for a diff extraction/upgrade/re-install. Not to mention the latter is not registered in Texas for the street yet.

Too much to do that soon, so little time to do it in. Family and work come first... mostly The transition from racing bikes to cars is taking more time than expected.

I am very disappointed, believe me.
