Re: ETRSCCA June 3rd Car Class?

Welcome Luke! You've picked the right chassis too. Based on your mods you will be in STR along with the Novice pax for your first event or so.

I wish NBs were in STS!

Here's my 3rd and fastest run of a 50.1xx with a bunch of mistakes.

Re: Event 3 after action

Once they got up to temp I was seeing plaid the car was moving so quick. There was a section in the rear behind the fence where the car would catch air and I would need to catch 3rd gear. It was ridiculously difficult and put a shit-eat'n-grin on my face every time. I think course workers got their...

Re: Dixie National... the Official Thread.

180 runs on a big ole car can definitely point to some heat-cycled tires. Let me know if ever want a tire warmer at tours, James said your car was a riot, something like steering a big boat with your right foot or some such. :lol:

Re: Thanks for a well-run first event of the season!

Cathers is quick for sure, but I also think the car matches his driving style really well so it’s a deadly combo. I’m closing in on figuring that out... just need some practice at it, so watch out! Yeah I thought a vette matches his driving style really well too.... then I put him in my 130rwhp mia...

Greg would've beat me if he were clean.
Double check this. I think he would have still been behind JCB

Just realized.....
AS pax = 0.814
STX pax = 0.813

Here's my very optimistic list for the miata.

Re: Newbie couple questions...

Welcome! +1 on a square setup. I ran 275/35/18 with 18x10.5s squared on my STU 350Z and it was pretty well balanced. Didn't have proper on throttle rotation until I installed an OSG LSD. Occasional push on entry with hotchkiss front & rear bars set at full soft each. Granted, my car was under-sprung...

Re: Miata Peeps! Looking at 2003 Miata Shinsen, common issues?

I've done some research on diffs since mine is relatively useless as a LSD now. The MSM does have a torsen, it the same as a S2000 torsen, so you could use the MFactory LSD into your MSM torsen. Maybe 6spd was an option with the Shinsen or maybe that one was swapped? 5spd/4.3 is better for autox, an...
