[QUOTE=ZX-Tex;515992]Holy negative camber on that red #7

yeah, it was setup for a different set of springs i had on it last month. they were really stiff so it wasn't gonna have much camber gain from susp. travel.
they were a little too stiff and i wasn't able to get it re-aligned after swapping them out. i was able to squeeze out a 1:49.9 today after swapping to 13x8 diamonds with kuhmo v710's. if i could have tuned the shocks a little to take advantage of the stickier rubber, i think i could have knocked off another second or so. that's cool though, i had an awesome time, had some great battles with friends, was able to pass and pull away from enemy's and got some good vid. footage to boot! oh, and that was my first time back to msr-h since '07, and i'm 11sec. faster than last time! haven't touched the power on the car since i bought it. that's all from susp., tires, brtakes, aero, and driver improvement. so all in all i'm pretty f'kin stoked!

Was plagued with problems on saturday, finnal call was that a coolant line was spraying all over my rear tires and killing my traction, the bad *** corner workers ended up letting me know sunday morning after the problem was fixed, endded up running a 2.05 with Jakes wheels and tires, felt real good for my first real big track event

How did the Miata crowd do against the other makes timewise, off track excursions, etc? We all like to read about the under-rated Miata producing better times than the high $$$ cars.

Finally a really local event (20 miles from the house) and I was looking forward to being a spectator (and seeing some of these great builds in person), but some BS came up at work and I missed the event...sh*t.

Great pictures gentlemen!
