I look forward to talking to Soren.

BenR i'll be at the track this coming Saturday to drive my teg and also record lap times of various cars.


At Blvd, Billy is a good guy, Keith is the only alignment guy I'll use. John knows miatas well and really good at diagnostics.

Soren is usually at the track, he was in the zebra spec miata, his son was in the tiger striped spec miata.

Wow I wish I had a track close by at all, not to mention one that let you run for $20

I'm moving to Clovis, NM in January, good to know there is a track somewhere within 4-5 hours of me.

Okay i'm finally ready to buy one! My best value is this 2002 up for grabs March 3rd. I've lost patience hunting the obd1 Miata's that are priced right so this one will have to do for now.

It's a rebuilder. Looks like it went under a truck and damaged only the upper radiator suppport (radiator ok) Everything else looks fine. No CEL's, drives straight and everything works.

I peeled off in the grass and it dug holes in my yard on both sides so i'm guessing LSD is there?

For the body i need passenger fender & headlight and a hood. Bumper isn't bad so i'll save money there.

How bad is the fender?

I might have a few that are not in 100% but might be better than what you have.


Unfortunately, or fortunately I guess, the open diff will also often make black marks with both tires.

i'm pretty sure it's not 100% ideal but i think i can make this work well enough with a gt2860rs .63 a/r t3 housing for road course (270ish whp)



anyways i felt it was a good deal considering i'd have a "disco potato" base setup to build around for under $2000
