Default New Here

Hey all, first off no, I don't have F/I but I was told to take a look around here by another forum member (cueball) Anyways, here is my miata. I purchased it when I was 16 and immediately began learning the car at autocross. I am now getting it out to the track. Here's some pics.

The mention of Casey and pictures of PIR means your local? Put your location in your profile, so myself and a few others could offer local help if/when you need it.

P.S. You over cooked turn 2.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. As far as goals/turbo, I'm in college and one of those kids who actually pays for school so boost is far off or may never touch this car.

However for the time being I am in the middle of a major suspension/drivetrain refresh. So far I've finished or have lying around

Fidanza 7lb fly
Drifting Jellyfish delrin motor mounts (mazdacomps were pathetic)
Autokonexion solid aluminum diff mounts
Energy Suspension master bushing kit

And Curly, I am from Portland. West Hills area. However I spend most of my time in Lake O hanging at AR auto when I'm not working or at school.
