Default Miatas at Hallett 2008

One lap from Hallett in the third session.
Ran 1:41.7's
Falken Azenis - my daily street tires. Saving the Hoosiers for next month's event.
Not great, but not bad for having never been there and not having boost yet.

Yep, first recording with the cage since install. I need to build a bracket for the rear center section for better viewing.

Oh man. It looks like it was great out there. I should have tried to at least come and watch. I'm usually there for the Porsche events. Hope to make it there next year!

/\ Yes, it was a very good weekend.
Ole Yeller filled my mirrors a time or two for sure.
Edit* Sorry we couldn't see you off....mechanical failures held us up. We did get tires, brakes, and cars switched on the trailer to finally get everyone home safely.

So far yes.... The fans need to be wired in parallel, however, the cooling fan never came on the whole weekend.
Yes, it is stock radiator for now. Second one however, as the first failed in the usual cracking at the cap area.
Checked for fan operation, and it does work.
My guage seems to off as it was reading around the 125* mark, and I know it wasn't that cool.
