I saw that but didn't think anything about saying something. I just figured you had unhooked it for the track.

Watching the 7 foot mechanic work on it in part 2 is interesting. Looks like a toy car.

Get snow tires and you'll be amazed. I have not used them on the Miata, but I assume they work the same on any car. Also a narrower tire in winter is better.

I think you need to compare the wheels from the old CHRA and the new one. Perhaps there are some differences. No bearing style differences?

If that is white ash that wipes off easily I would guess an oil control problem in #1. How did the piston look on #1 vs the others? If it was really rich you might see a washed out area in the...

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me that the lower pressure cap is allowing the car to overheat unless you are boiling the AF out of the radiator. (which could happen)

Car turned great today and the rear was a bit loose but controllable.

I think the next stop is NB top hats and different bump stops to allow more compression. I think this is killing the handling.

Half of the houses in Atlanta subs look like those or bigger. Looks like the start of a good booth. I'm suprised that your grass is not green by now?? Those must be old pictures?

I've seen that before....... I'm not sure if the exhaust guys think we are stupid, it just doesn't make any difference, or they just don't know any better.

We enjoy our Mazda 5 but there is not much power. Might be too minivanish.... However 30 MPG is attainable with 6 passengers and it rides like a Mazda.

3-4 MPH extra in the 1/4 is all I have to know. Still not impressed with the SC V8. The rest you can fudge, but that number is pretty well determined by HP unless the people driving are terrible...
