Default NA6T Ice/RallyX/Track/AutoX

About a month ago I bought a NA6 Miata with a Flyin Miata 2554 kit, cage, and a suspension similar to a specmiata. I plan on using it for autox, track, and rallyx events in the summer, but in the winter we race on frozen lakes in Wisconsin.






To run on the ice I removed the rear sway bar and raised the ride heights all the way. With the cold I noticed some boost creep, so I turned down the boost to 8-9lbs.

I hate plain looking racecars, so the first I did once I brought it home was to add a little vinyl.



I already had some studded tires I used on my old rallycross e36.

My other wheels didn't fit over the '01+ sport brakes, so I had to use the Jongbloed's I just bought from Phil's Tire. I was going to mount Hoosiers on them. Not ideal in my opinion.

These pics are from facebutt:





If anyone knows of a cheap set of 15's I can mount these on, please let me know. The stock offset would help me eliminate a little rub.

The tow up to the lake was a little messy.

My gopro battery died so this is the best I have:


The white snow and dark interior made for a poor video. You can hear the rub really bad, but it sounds worse than it is.

The view from outside:
