Nobody likes getting passed by a Miata, NOBODY!

Curious why you like the SC setup on the track as opposed to a turbo? I've considered a SC setup for a nice linear throttle response on the autocross track.

Ben are you a transplant like myself? You'll find the roads, they're fun for a cruise but you can't beat the track!

I'm on my third year now, get to take a break and live in MI/PA for a year then I'll be back. How do you cope? Looks like autocross from the picture

That picture was taken in Gainesville, FL at the $2012 Grassroots Motorsports Challenge.

That's just my daily driver. I am a "conefag" as we sometimes get referred to as, but haven't seriously competed in 2-3 years as i beat my head against a brick wall fighting with the race car.

Honestly, i don't really cope or do much. I try to make at least one long trip a year to some cool roads, and this year i did 7500+ miles going through Colorado to Vancouver BC, then all the way down the coast to San Diego via Highway 1 and 101. Then home.

Then a week and a half later, went to MATG.


Then i've got two cars this year i'm fielding at the GRM $2013 Challenge, so i just stay busy.

I'm in Indy and have a very well equipped if extremely crammed garage, you're more than welcome to come up and hang out/work on your car/work on my cars/drink my beer whenever you like!


RACEKOR!!!!

Cool drives! I've done a Michigan-CO-Vegas-up the coast to Seattle and back across before, great road trip. Never done the Dragon, it's been coming up a lot lately so there has to be something to it. Maybe over the Labor Day weekend before I move north but I'm hesitant to go somewhere the cops must be all over.

I've been curious about the GRM $20XX challenges as well. What types of events do you compete at? Autocross? Track? I bet you can manage some great engineering feats with just over $2k. What are the two cars you're building for it?

I'll have to stop by if I'm ever planning to be up there, or if you make it down to Columbus I'd say my garage is always in use and probably equally as packed!

The GRM $20xx Challenge is an autocross, 1/4 drag, and a show.

This year, total budget including car is $2013. You're familiar with budget racing anyways, i see. :P

The car in my sig is my daily driver, i'll be taking it back for another attempt, and i'm building an additional 88 MX6 GT that's going to my buddy in Minneapolis who will be bringing it.

I'm sure you could get a small inertia turbo setup with nice short piping for good transient response for the autocross days too, I have not experienced such bliss however :( With the design improvements on increasing the efficiency of superchargers these days one must consider all options in the quest for MOAR POWA! (There, thought completed!)

SC development is lagging well behind turbo development.


And literally nobody is developing SCs for the Miata. There's only 1 kit left on the market. And for good reason (red is turbo, blue is SC).

I knew that comment was going to earn me some slack!

Thanks for the welcoming Brain! Any chance you could fix these pics, it's a 2010 post however...
