Default New white Miata on the track!

Hi MiataTurbo crowd!

Just got this little white 1995 beauty last september. Started by an oil change and an autocross then winter came in the way. Autocross time :



Then, this spring, I've gone to 2 track schools and 1 Time Attack, all in 1 month. Me at the track :



Now that I've got a base case, let the building begin!

Hello MiataTurbo!

Thanks buffon01!

Next step is a proper race seat bolted on the floor. As one can see, there is something higher than the roll bar behind the winshield... Even after a foamectomy!

On another side, my girlfriend told me that yesterday : "The video of your last race is a shame, everyone passes you. You need to put more money into the car to go faster." I've no choice but to proceed then!

Here's my plan :

- FM V-Maxx package with swaybars (~1.5k)
- 15x9 6ULs (~1.5k)
- BFG Rivals or Hankook RS-3 (~0.8k)

This will give me time to be sure how I want to go with the motor. Is there any other trackworthy suspension package in that price range?

For 1.5k there's a lot better available than v-maxx.
