Oh, are we running CW? That would be great. I am happy to share notes, take folks out in DE3, and/or ride with folks that would like it, assuming that is allowed. I don't have any interest with instructing for NASA, but I don't mind helping folks out.

I'll be there in TT3, and instructing. The car felt fantastic at MSRC last weekend so I am hoping for a good event at TWS. It would be great to see a good Miata turnout.

Okay, I'm in for Sunday only in HPDE 3 (where the cool kids play).

Jake, what's up; do you still read Miata Turbo Forum?

(Wow, that's low definition! I think YouTube has downgraded the quality in the last two years.)

Hopefully I can get out there. I'm in the process of buying Wayne Presley's car (see for sale section). It needs a couple of tweaks and a rollbar to be track ready, but hopefully I'll be a late admission and meet up with you guys. Probably be HPDE 1, as I haven't been on track in a couple years.

Fingers crossed.

Hell, I'm about to try the Loctite fix on the short nose crank so I don't have to spend the vast majority of my track budget for the year on swapping in a VVT engine.

Already missing next weekend.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they don't have any care to help someone with a VVT engine swapped into a 1991.

Some say that his powers of telekenesis extend into the electrical world. And since he can control all of the car's functions directly with his mind, most race organizations make him wear aluminum foil in his helmet to prevent this.

All we know is, he's called The Hustler.

Robert and Steve, curious to know what builds you're running there. Sounded like Steve's was supercharged, couldn't tell with Robert's.

My motor is a stock, 91K mile unit that has never had its head off. You can read the complete build sheet of my car here:

Thumbs up

The 0086 is powered by a 1.21 gigawatt flux capacitor. All other mods are top secret; however, anyone showing up at TWS on April 21st can view, ask questions and even photograph the awesomeness that is the 0086.

Only 1.21 gigawatts? Oh, that's cool. I remember my first beer.

I'm personally going to go with the new 8.15 terawatt flux capacitor, equivalent to a little more than half of the world's annual energy consumption. Some people say it's extreme... I laugh at those people.
