Default Miata Rally and Rallycross thread!

Post up any pics, vids, tips, tricks, etc!

Went to work the start for a friend today. Got tired of watching everyone have fun and caved in. I think I messed up my gangster dish wheels. This was in a bone stock 93LE with 15x8's and 205 Direzza's. Was about 2.5 seconds out from RWD TTOD. With suspension and tires I think I could close that gap for good. These cars have way more potential off road than I thought.

You know the day will be awesome when you start with a beard bennie.

Great thread! We have 3, sometimes 4 Miatas RallyCrossing in Honolulu, Hawaii. We are currently working on a new racing site. When it is secured, I will have more pics to add.

A part of me wants to keep the NB around and let it be a rallyx build next winter or so. I'm about done with putting money in the NA.

I've taken the NB on some up north back roads and i was stunned at how well it handled loose terrain even with an all season tire.

I've attached a pic of 4 RallyCross Miatas at Kalaeloa Raceway Park in Honolulu, Hawaii. Sadly, we lost this site, but are working to get another location.

so rally-x is usually just a quick lap or two right? but harsher surfaces.
what is more stressful to the Miata? a rally-x day or a track day.

afaik there are a ton of scoob owners out there who do weekend rally-x in their daily drivers... would Miatas be able to do the same thing?

The 93LE is getting converted to a stock class rallyx car.

Thev's what size and brand tires are you on? How did you do you mud flaps, pics? What class you running? Awesome pics thanks!

I ordered Cooper Weather Master ST2 in 195/60r14, going to run them on daisy's too.

Ha ! ;o) Great question ! Lots of different ones....There is no perfect tire for all the different tracks even just here in MI. We run some tracks that are sandy, some are hard packed clay and some are very muddy/grassy. I have some Firestone winterforce snows for some surfaces, the tires in these shots are some really old Bridgestone mud tires, I occasionally use some used rally tires but these tend to be a bit heavy for Rally X. Recommend you go to a local event and walk around the "paddock" and see what everyone is running, it's pretty interesting....If you are non turbo smaller diameter and light tires seem to work well to get you max torque and control. Wish I knew the secret, but for me having a selection at each course works well and then you need to make a smart choice after walking the course and looking at the weather forecast. The race i have in the pictures I gambled and it did not pay off - the temps were right around freezing and I gambled the sun would come out and the track would get muddy....it didn't and I just slid around all day..should have gone with a snow/ice tire...part of the fun !
