Re: Now that 2017 is in the book what upgrades are folks planning for 2018?

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...

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

The tochigi fuji super(TFS) LSD came in 03s and up. I don't think they used it in the MSM, though. It's an ok street LSD and shouldn't exploded with typical auto-x use. There's rumor that several of them were not setup correctly from the factory. A Shinsen should come with a 6spd and a 3.9 final-dri...

Re: 2017 ARRC at Road Atlanta

I couldn't imagine driving RA in it's old config.

Are bump-drafts not permitted in your class because of aero or other reasons? I can never seem to find regional results on scca's website, do you know where to find them?

Congrats to you both!

Re: DOM group buy....any interest?

Well shit, I was JUST about to forward this to Gary Johnson for my miata cage this winter. Ah well, I'm sure he has a lead on cage tubing anyways.
