Silly burnouts, haha.

I never did 'em before in my Miata or in a manual car without linelock. I don't normally abuse my car

Horray for revlimiters.





I have a lot of car videos but not much uploaded to youtube.

Cobb Stg 3
3" DP and exhaust Upgraded TMIC

Now he has a STi Turbo, FMIC, and Cobb tune. I actually ran him the same night as the 1/4 mi drag races, and I was ahead by a fender, so he got a retune to go from 340whp to 360whp. I wonder what he is gonna do when I go from 10psi to 15psi??

w/ a 4.10. 6-speed with a 3.63 is the only way to go.

1st 3.163 44.2 mph
2nd 1.888 74.1 mph
3rd 1.333 104.9 mph
4th 1.000 139.9 mph
5th .814 171.8 mph

That's how my car is geared right now.
235-40-17 tires, 4.10 rear, stock 5-spd, 7900 rpm redline.

I think 172ish mph is PLENTY FAST in a Miata. I do like going thru the traps at redline in 3d.

there is no such thing as stage 3, according to cobb anyways. UNLESS you are talking about stage 2 with a sti turbo and top mount, which some people call stage 3. and there is NO WAY IN HELL his wrx put down anything close to 340 or 360whp with his setup. vf39 turbo's put down 300-320 very well tuned on a optimistic dyno on pump gas, let alone a little td04 hahaha

at 15psi I'm sure you will own him form a roll

the 5-speed won't last over 200whp from what I've read on the internet. I'd love to keep mine with a 3.90, but I'd rather drive it home than enjoy the gearing.

I thought it was 350whp for the stock 5-spd?

I did some research on what you said, and you are 100% correct. No way he can make that much on a stock STi turbo. Now I am curious what he really has done to it.

hell no. People are blowing them up at 200whp. Maybe you and Bryce can put your brains together and offer me a cryo treating / rebuild deal better than $800.

Thats my thinking also. Id love to stay 5 speed, but I dont wanna be worried with possible failure at any point, then be left stranded. 6 speed and 3.6 is close enough to stock 4.1 and 5 speed, just with an extra cruise gear.

I've never heard of Keith blowing them up in his SM-T cars, and they make close to 300whp. He goes thru alot of stock motors, but no 5-spds.

Maybe he's getting that guy in OKC to "strengthen" them. I don't see how he's keeping them together. I'd love to hear the answer. I've never actually met keith, but I met his buddy in the yellow/black car who drove a session on the 1.3 and basically "burned rubber" like a viper fagmo.

Quick one I just took while merging, just a point-n-shoot taped to my steering column.
