Default Noob from Mobile, AL De-Noobing

Hello All,


I purchased first Miata in October. 04 MSM, low miles, stock, garaged. I believe it was a good find. This car is quickly becoming an obsession. I have been on the Mazda-Speed forum for some time but I've been researching on here a lot lately. It seems only right to sign up, de-noob, and express gratitude to those who have shared a wealth of information on the forums. As a noob it has definitely mitigated the trial and error of selecting parts and working on the car. After a few autocrosses and lot of driving I've had to up the ante a bit on power and handling. The Little Enchilada has unlocked some performance, albeit only from 4500-6500 RPM. With current hardware it seems a good tune would do a lot for this car. Horsepower bragging rights are not the objective, so that may be enough but if not I can look at other things down the road. Right now the objective is to autocross more, improve as a driver, possibly graduate to track in future, and build a car that is well-sorted and enjoyable to drive.


Cheers!

Welcome to the forum. Several of us are track rats. Maybe I'll see you at Road Atlanta sometime. Or Sebring or Daytona or Roebling Road...
