(SOLD) !FOR SALE. PRICE DROP! $5.5K STS 1990 MAZDA MIATA

Post by John Brown » Mon Feb 20, 2017 1:58 pm

yep.
That car. Im moving on to a new class and a new house soon,and dont have room to store it.
All this car needs is a Day on the Dyno to get the same HP numbers it had before I put a new timing belt on it last winter. I moved the CAC and never got the timing back to correct because its not done there... its adjusted in the MegaSquirt.

The History for this car speaks for itself. As does its reliability.
Every extra I have will go with the car. wheels,parts, etc.

As the car sits, 2 year old tires and all, will win Open STS classes all year. To win Pro classes, the Dyno will be needed.

Car has zero rust, all panels are original. Has the "timing light" dent still and the left rear quarter panel has been repaired and painted. Paint is in really good shape.

Spec Miata seats (2) I have the original seats that are in excellent condition.
Cyl leak down is at 3%
Compression is a solid 195
Koni Race Shocks assorted springs.
Wide Band ready for tuning.
Delrin bushing on all corners
Off-set Delrin Bushings in front.
Custom made upper rear arms for camber adj.
Clutch has 1 season on it. 1 Pro-Solo
Trans is smooth and no bad syncros.
Dyno sheet and specs to interested buyers.
weighs 1965lbs on the light wheels/tires and race fuel level

This car needs to go to a home of a racer, who will use it..
$5500.00 and you go win STS.
also open to offers. no trades. (too many cars now) :lol:

Someone buy this and try to beat me please. I will have more fun getting beat by this car than running by myself.

I seem to be partial to cars that run against Miatae, but this is one of the most fun cars that I've ever autocrossed.

I will say I drove this car for one run last year and it is very predictable and handles very well. Wish I had another run in it as I screwed up the last turn. It would have been interesting to see what time I would have turned. :wink:

We all know this car is capable of winning our Pro class.

I've driven my fair share of miatae and this one is still in my top 5 best to drive :rockon: It has ridiculous power for a 1.6, goes where you point it(with your foot), and it minimizes the front-end push you have with most auto-x miatas.

Good luck with the sale, it'd be cool if it stayed local!

Also, Flyin' Miata is working on an ECU tuning solution that's STS legal that should give some power increase.

JB already has a MegaSquirt running in his, so that FM221 wouldn't really provide any gains.

When this car is in proper tune... I dont think much more "LEGAL" power can come out of a 1.6L
