Default Texas Noob, no boost but some BIG pics

Hi

I'm Mike Bond (hence the username). I'm 17 and from Southlake, Texas. My dad gave me the 1990 stock miata when I turned 16. Since then I have added 15" Kazera KZ-M wheels, new clutch (had 118,xxx when replaced), KYB shocks, koni lowering springs, Ansa slip on exhaust ( used to have a glass pack in place of muffler but it was too loud and ricy), and a hardtop. I have also put in place a 1.8 open diff I aquired from Hustler (and yes, he is a badass, and not a robot, needs more booztz though).

I have been road racing pretty much my whole life. Started Karting at the age of 8 and still going (5hp briggs, 100cc yamaha, 80cc shifter, currently 125cc shifter). I have also had the privelage to drive my dads vintage race cars (1964 Mini Coopers S...2 of those, and a 1975 Formula Ford Le Grand). I have driven just about all the tracks in the texas area as well ( TWS, MSR Cresson, ECR, Hallett, NTK kart track, Oakhill kart track)

The plans for my miata are either Turbo or a make it into a Spec miata. But with almost no money( working at Papa Johns pizza 6.55 HR, having a GF, and paying tickets) it's hard to afford either.

But to the point...

I have been researching turbocharging for almost a year now( this site has a shitload of smart people) and I think one day, I will have positive manifold pressure. T

This site is great, I visit it everyday.

and now for the pics ( sorry no GF pics, Only I get to see the goods

Is that a Sunbeam sitting behind the trailer? If so, you guys like your vintage British marks, huh?

My advice: race now!
IF you really think that's what you want to do. At your age, now IS the time. I think you'll get way more out of racing than driving a boosted Miata on the street. I do.

Welcome.
No, it's a Bugeye Sprite with a rotary engine. My dad and his friends are big into british vintage cars, the ones that leak oil everywhere.

M2cupcar: Thats what I was thinking. I also play hockey, so it is hard to time find for everything as it is. I'm just researching now so when the day comes when I can actually afford boost, I'll know what the hell I'm doing.

forgot to put up pic of the FF

The new Coopers suck, front wheel drive pieces of ****. The old ones rock. Would love to have one. You are so lucky to be able to race. Check out the band "Back Door Slam".....I think it's a good "racing" band.
