Default Miata Challenge #5 - Spring Mountain



Video from this past weekend at Spring Mountain in Pahrump, NV. Awesome track, not quite my favorite but very close. This track is going to be very, very hard to master - super technical, lots and lots of trailbraking.

Seriously, you need to invest in something other than a point and shoot. Maybe a go-pro or something else.

Congrats, that thing is nasty.

The dip is like crossing some rr tracks, holy hell I wasn't expecting it.

My bov sounded just like yours with the 1.9, I figured it to be surge. The 1.6, same BOV, same settings, just sounded like a pfsht-pfsht-pfsht. Nothing that concerns you?

an open blow off valve making squeaky noises in overrun is not compressor surge. There's almost no load on the turbine and the valve is open. Marketing will suggest otherwise.
