Default Randy Pobst in an Ecotec Miata at Laguna Seca

Had a chance to throw a true legend in our enduro car this weekend. I'll post more details in our build thread, but to summarize it's a 2.4 ecotec making 180ish hp/ftlbs, MCS single adjustables, StopTech's 11" BBK with 1.8 rears, using Cobalt race pads, and 205 RE71Rs on 15x8 FFD wheels.

We had eccentric delrin upper control arm bushings that were rotating on the right side, so we only had about 1 degree of camber on the FR, ELBJ coming soon. So definitely more time in the car, but we're happy with it. Randy managed a 1:43.8, which was a couple hundredths of a second slower than the fastest lap of the weekend, which was a S54 swapped e36 using a sequential transmission. Our hot shoe driver Martin managed a 1:45.0 on corded front RE71-Rs, Randy had some fresher used fronts for his lap.
