Default Hello all!

I'm currently building a 92 miata into what I hope to be a great all around track and street car. I'm building a tube chassis because the standard unibody would not hold up. I'm putting an 06 miata front sub-frame assembly and ford 9 inch with a 3 link with a watts link in the rear. The motor going in is a lq4 6.0 with a 75mm turbo. Trans will be a t-56 magnum. Goal is 650 + rear wheel hp.

I'm here for front strut advice and to troll around to see if theres any tube chassis miata pics for ideas.

I'm looking at megan racing front struts. Would they be good for drag and road racing?

Yes, that sounds like a street car.

Also do you mean track or do you mean strip? "Track" on this forum usually has turns. These aren't drag cars. I mean if you replace 60% of the car it could be I suppose.

Welcome.

Also: solid trolling, mate.

Thenuge26's foolproof formula to an 8 second miata!

1) Sell miata

2) Buy F-body Camaro or Foxbody Mustang

3) ???

4) Profit!

Then skip the Megans and proceed directly to Xidas. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
