Not to fear. There will be a new absurdly quick N/A miata built to take it's place. It's name is Bubbles by the way.

Dunno yet. The thing won't need any help to get a WRC powerband. I could run a bone stock engine with just rods and pistons and meet my modest (for this blower) power goals. If I make it breathe too well with cams, porting and such nonsense, I'll just lower the pressure ratio required to draw a Kansas relief map on the dyno and maybe fall off the bottom of the borgsters map.

I'd like to do a few RLTA and GTA's. The SoCal guys are heavily pressuring Chris to revamp the Mod rules in RLTA to allow actual race cars and maybe create lbs/hp tiers (crazy idea!). If that happens, a bunch of active W2W guys would stand a chance at a podium spot. That could be some good fun. As it is, we get lumped in with 2400#, 600whp running full slicks and goofy Pike Peak style aero. IOW, we get stomped even though our cars will actually run all day without much more than gas and few drops of oil during the lunch break.

Anyway, with a series/class to run uncorked it would be fun to run E85, pull the ballast out, mounts slicks and see what it will do a few laps at a time.

Guess, probably 10.0:1. Even with race gas, I think I can build a torque to weight ratio equal to that of the Z06's. I get a slight lbs/hp penalty for being so light so they'll still pull me on the top end but that should only matter at ACS. I may make up for it by being able to do 1-2 flat where I don't think they'll be able to. Who knows? We'll build it, race it a bit and see how bad an idea it is.

I'm sure Andrew is scheming how to choke Theseus down enough to run in ST2 with us

I call dibs on naming a car "Sprinkles". Right now I'm stuck with "Green Glory Hole" and "Patches The AIDS Quilt".

Our Chumpcar is Patch. Sprinkles, wish I had thought of it. We have a salvage yard sourced NB here that pees all over everything. If it doesn't get cleaned up and flipped, it'll be a race car. Maybe I can license the name from you for a specified qty of malted beverages per annum.

Outstanding! I will be ready to play by the spring. With 245 R75's I still fit in ST2. Should be a good year for Miata's in ST2.

I have dibs on "toonces".

I will lease the name for a royalty however, since I'll never build a race car.

Between TSE and 949R, I'm looking forward to some hardcore torture testing and R&D for the EFR turbos on road courses.

Revised pin locations. Silver ones are block off plates.
