Needed? No (But it's not my fault if you miss and go flying off the top).

Speaking of - PM me your email so we can swap some files. 0086 - do the same if you'd like to share data.

I am using racechrono but can export a CSV. Can you guys import that into the Traqmate software? I have researched it but have not found anything conclusive yet.

EDIT: Never mind. I found a file online and when I opened it in notepad all I saw was a bunch of gibberish characters, not delimited text as I had hoped.

woops! that's one good thing about drifting, besides getting comfortable with your car at the limits, you gain experience with timing and hand speed to control slides. i did a couple rally-x events last year in my miata too, which besides being stupid fun, were really helpful since i was literally throwing the wheel and catching it at the right time to fly through the high speed dirt chicane we had.

details for next event at tws:

like i had stated previously, there will be a 6hr. enduro on sat. april 24th.
because of this, round 3 of the Texas Miata Challenge will be held on sunday the 25th. however, it would be a good event to run both days for a couple reasons. first, on sat. you get 2 sessions. you will be done with both before noon giving you a chance to work on setup for sunday, go over your gps data, video, speak with other peeps about lines, braking points etc... or just kick back and watch some racing. second, the prices are a little less since you don't get as many sessions.

i'll post up pricing and schedule details shortly.

I am so damn camber challenged. After lowering the car to 12" ride height and returning to the alignment rack I can do no better than -2.1 deg camber on the front. I can get buttloads of camber in the rear but have backed off to keep the car more balanced. It was pushing a tad at MSR. I see custom upper a-arms in my future, but not before TWS.

Yes I am making excuses already

just ordered a set of nitto's from discount tire direct direct. they beat onlinetires.com price which was $100 less than discounts normal price. talk to danny ext. 51854 for a great deal. the 205's are only $107.87 and 225/45/15 were only a few $ more!

Word. That is how I bought mine. And you can have them delivered to your local Discount Tire for mount and balance if need be.

Discount Tire will come way down on their prices (online and at retail stores) if you haggle with them and show them competitor pricing.

The DFW Discount Tire shops will not mount a 225 on a 9" wheel. I tried 2-locations and they won't do it.

That is lame. Maybe they got tired of the homeyz wanting 185s mounted on their 10" wide gold spokes. Probably not doing it since TECHNICALLY the 9" is out of the approved rim width range for the 225/45/15 NT01. We know that is stupid of course. Blame the lawyers.

My 225/45/15 were mounted on 15x8 (in the approved range) so I cannot comment on whether the SA ones will mount on 15x9.
