Default New member - 94 Miata R-package

Hi, I'm new the forum and have a 1994 R-package. Mostly stock with HDHCDD rollbar and FCM/GC suspension.

Here it is in all it's glory:

Still planning for a BEGI install.

Welcome. It's no fun when you post a pic before we can ask for a ban

Well I'm not running the stock springs so I guess it's unfair to call it an 'R'. ES would be a great auto-x class to run, but this car is more of a toy/project so I'm moving towards CSP and possibly SM2 and throwing away a chance at being competitive for the sake of having fun. I'm not a high caliber driver anyway and I have an HS Mazda 3 (hence the axela) that I run in divisional / tour events that are local to me.

Right now I have a boosted Del Sol with a built motor going in it.

I'll be lurking around, trying to get info on building a high horsepower turbo Miata.

First question is Which year is best?

I assume the 1.8 better than a 1.6.

Am I correct in saying that the 94 to 95 should be a good year to get?

Thanks in advance.
