Thumbs up 2000 Green in Raleigh

Hey guys, got a miata about 9 months ago. Been past this site a few times. Figured I would get on before I got too far into my miata project.
So far...

Painted the trunk (rust prevention) amongst other fix up small jobs
Fortune Auto 500 coilovers
DDM Tuning lights all the way around
NRG steering wheel coming tomorrow

Im in raleigh/apex so if anyone is around me and would like to introduce themselves that would be awesome!!

Matt

welcome to the site! What are your plans in the future for the car?

I originally thought I wanted a stupidcharger, but I've learned the error in my ways. It'll be awhile til I go turbo, but when I do, it'll be easier with all the resources available here.

A supercharger is fine, as long as it's a centrifugal supercharger that is turbine driven from the exhaust gasses instead of belt driven.

THSCC meetings are usually once a month on the second Wednesday. Not too many people show up, but yea shoot me a message and we can go from there. If you are going to an autocross, you will probably have to find the others there, I am usually not at the autocrosses. Track events we usually organize before hand.
