Default Ricers ricers ricers

I took a ride on the fantastic voyage that is NC88 and VA58 (both excellent roads) in a miata ;D Took a few quick pics up on Mt. Jefferson in the fog the other day too:




The spoiler was kinda part of an experiment with aerodynamic development, I definitely feel a difference with it installed. The car just rides smoother all around, plus the back end sticks at higher speeds than before. I would like to eventually get a much taller one and a hard top, but funds won't allow it currently lol. I am not noticing front end lift yet, but I am eventually going to add a diffuser and splitter, plus underbody smoothing. Don't mind the missing turns, I'm in the process of building a homemade intake in them.

Don't do wings on the street. Unless your in a Ford Escort, then it's ok.

put a gtc-300 on and you'll really feel a difference.

Work on a good front splitter before you bother with a rear spoiler, youre likely to negatively effect the handling with only a rear spoiler since youre generating lots of lift up front and downforce in the back, nad bad things happen

Looking forward to seeing the car in action at the Zmax event.
