Default Greetings from Northern VA

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Geran and I currently don't own a Miata.

I am looking to build a track only Miata for competing in NASA ST2 events eventually as well as local HPDEs, Hillclimbs and Redline Time Attacks when they come around.

Hopefully I get to know a good amount of knowledge from this board before making a purchase and maybe make some new friends.

That is all for now but I will surely be back to do A LOT of research.

I have a general idea of things I would like for the car ranging from aerodynamics, wheels/tires and suspension. The only thing I am on the fence about is the engine...options are swapping to a V8 or turboing it around 250hp and upgrading later if need be.

I currently live in Sterling but I am looking for a house in Prince Georges County MD (this is holding my back from getting a Miata right now).

Really? That's completely different from the other board I was on (RS25.com).

Because housing prices are still cheaper out there and due to where I work (downtown DC) my commute will go from an hour and 45mins to just 35mins.

Trust me, if I found a decent job paying me what I make or more out where I live now. I wouldn't be moving.

I work in DC so I get the good food for lunch every day and I already got a good woman (my girlfriend).

No, my name is something I've had for awhile from other message boards.
