Default Car is finished

I just wanted to show off a couple pics of the car now that it is finished. It's all loaded up on the trailer and ready for Dixie. These pics were taken at a local Test N Tune event this last weekend.









And it looked like there was a decent chance of rain so I ordered some of the new Hoosier H20 Wets. Here is a pic of an unmounted 225 45 15 H2O wet beside an unmounted 275 35 15 A6. I run the A6's on 15x10 6ULs and tomorrow am mounting the "Wets" on the old 15x9 6ULs. Pretty surprised at how wide they are.

The wing is an older wing from this company.

http://www.cirodesignracing.com/Ciro...cing/HOME.html

It's just barely inside the rules for SSM. About 1/4" too short, 1/4" too narrow. ETC. Big enough to work but just small enough to be legal. And I added a gurney flap to the top element and rebuilt the end plates from Alumalite

Is that a garage vary lip molded onto a stock bumper?

Also, are you using wheel spacers or is that really how far out the 15x10 sits??

Love the car man. It's proper.

The wing is small and the tires are skinny.

This Miata is not gay, your argument is invalid.
