Default Hello from Clovis/Cannon AFB, NM

Hello, my name is Daniel and I just purchased this 1990 Miata. It already came with alot of performance mods as follows:

Greddy Turbo/Manifold
BEGI downpipe and full exhaust
Custom intercooler and piping
RX7 injectors
Megasquirt plug and play ECU tuned by UMS tuning 186 rwhp at 11 psi
LCI wideband 02 sensor
Koyo radiator

Suspension/Chassis:
NB miata hard S bilstein shocks
NB shock mounts
NB bumpstops
NB Shock tower brace
H&R springs
Flyin' Miata frame rail braces


Wheels/tires/brakes
NB big sport package brakes
Axxis metal master brake pads
Kosei K1 racing 15x7 wheels
Kumho XS 205/50/15 tires

Drivetrain
ACT Organic Clutch from FlyinMiata and 13.5 lb LW Flywheel
1.8 liter limited slip differential setup
1.8 halfshafts
Rebuilt shifter

Right now I'm working on getting it retuned for this NM altitude. It will be my AutoX/Road Course car. I used to race AutoX/Drag/Ice Racing up in Alaska for the last 2 years with my Mazdaspeed3. Before that I had an FC RX7 that I AutoX/Ice Raced. It feels good to be back in a RWD car.

I haven't named my Miata yet, still working on that..lol

If you like to autocross there is one held in Amarillo. Last October about 6 people from the base attended. Ask around and come with that group for the next one!

Sorry you're in Clovis. I have never lived anywhere with roads that bad....well that were paved. There is a guy named Simon running around there on base with an RX8 that goes to track a lot, Williams has a 240sx and is around too. Haven't been around there in a while so limited on who is still around.

Welcome! Greets from Las Cruces. If you are ever down south, check out the trackdays at Arroyo Seco Raceway in Deming or the SCCA Autocross in El Paso.

Yea Simon is still here, I live down the street from him. Me and Williams have a mutual friend in Japan, he should be back from his deployment in a few months. Theres a couple other Miata guys here. But your right about the crappy roads here in Clovis. lol

Thanks, I'm looking at getting a Hard Dog Sport Roll Bar from FM. Tomorrow starts day one of my retune with my tuner. Hopefully we get all the kinks worked out with the altitude change.

Didn't realize you were on MSF as well.... just looked up your miata thread on there as well. My squadron is sending a bunch of people out to Cannon over the next year to stand up a new squadron, there's a chance I may see ya out there.

I'll be out that way this weekend. Track day at Sandia. Most of the car guys from Cannon are attending. We will be leaving Cannon around 5:30 Friday.

Nope, they are converting all the PC-12s out there for us. So far I've been lucky and not 'been on the list' to go out there, but they will still need to send some more people I am pretty sure, so I'm not totally safe, yet.

Also where are you getting the schedule for Sandia? I google the track and click on the official site and it says there is another website was being built so I had no idea there was a trackday this weekend. Are you taking your car? If so, how are you going to track it with no roll bar?
