The rear end flies out from under the car. I should have unbolted it for the last session but thought it was driver error.


Seriously, threshold braking to the turn-in at 130mph sucks, and I do not like it.

2nd day out there (7th high speed session out there), track is just easy or i'm getting better at reading them. will say my braking zones do need work. i brake to early and ride the brakes to long but i do that at every track.

car feels grate even running a winter alignment, +.04 front and +.06 rear more camber then i do in track session

wish my adaptronic would work so i could almost match trey's power level

I'd love to put your car on the dyno and do it, but don't expect to make 241wtq at 4000rpm. I am interested to see how much spark we can put in it.

edit: Then again, how many properly tuned supercharged Miatas are running around? None.

I started looking at the tach and rather that shifting all the time, letting the tach drop to 3500rpm and still yank out of corners. That absurdflow get is the **** and gets tons of bitches.

Makes sense, the car isn't flexing as much and is staying flatter. Taking off the rear sway seems like a often used approach to reduce oversteer. Are running lots of neg camber in the back? Are you understeering at all?

Using the fatcat calculator your car is pretty tail happy! Lets see thats 558.8 and 447.04. Trey try the RB tubular with no rear bar or the 27mm spec miata front bar with no rear bar. The 27mm eibach bar should tone it down the most. You might want to add some 12k (670) front springs too. If you get the springs than go with the RB tubular bar. Also, I wonder if at your power level you weren't over powering those 205's and they were getting greesy, what tire are you running? Maybe its time for some 8" or 9" 6UL's and some 225's?

I started watching the video and then noticed my fingernails needed cutting. So I started cutting and thought it was taking forever. When I finally finished I saw the video hadn't finished yet. Then I realized how boring it was and made this post.

The place where you tell me to not brake so much...well, that's the 2nd turn on the out-lap and I'd like to get some heat in the brakes and tires. You probably shouldn't be up my *** on the outlap.

Invite others to be the camera car and see if they can catch you.

Jeff_Man - look for a manual iris on your camera, it would over expose the sky but you'd be able to see the track in these conditions.

The only the worse than that sun, is that sun on a wet track.

I want more seat time out there. I was just starting to cut down the braking points and put some pressure through the pedal. I need to get a cam in my car. I think I'm totally removing the rear sway after looking at the FCM calculator earlier today. I'm going to burn-up those skinnies to learn the braking points at ECR, then slap on the fatties after I've paid penance.

Yeah. I'm not too thrilled with my GoPro. The crappy Aiptek HD I have takes much better video and stills. The 100' depth for diving GoPro claims is bogus too. Below 50' it stops functioning as the buttons in the waterproof case bottom out under the pressure.
