Default K24 Miata track footage from last week

Here's a little video from a test day at Gingerman Raceway. Car feels balanced and sounds amazing. Now just need some more seat time and to play around with the suspension setup a bit more to keep dropping lap times. But overall for such a simple street setup I couldn't be happier with it.


Next spring it will have a bunch more power and maybe some other goodies.

Could just be the camera lens, but you seem to be running with a too straight arms for my liking.
Looks like shoulder moves forward to reach 12 o'clock.

The disted mic just gives a hint on the level of music...

Interesting observation. I happen to be 6' 4" so I'm not the ideal size for a Miata driver. That being said, the car feels very comfortable. If I bring the wheel too much closer to me, it feels awkward. Your perception may just be the wide angle lens too. I actually just swapped in a better steering wheel for track use. As you can see, this is still a full street car.

Sounds good!

For a second I forgot it was a K and not an F motor and was going to ask why all the short shifting, only person here that thinks that when they see the tach off scale lol
