You are calling me out after you got beat by three M3 Miatas? Even a blind squirrel sometimes finds a nut. :-D

Recommend a Body Shop

I am looking for a individual or shop that can do a little bit of custom bodywork and paintwork. Who do your recommend for small custom jobs?

Oct 6 - Dunnellon Championship Event #1

Good job yesterday everyone, that was enjoyable. This is video my third run, everything after was worse. I should have concentrated on cleaning up the turn around during the remaining runs. Running after lunch was better, surface wise, than the morning; I watched the morning group from course-side f...

New Project/Toy: 99 Miata

I think Doug is right about rerouting the vacuum line, worked on two 99s for me. Get vacuum from the top of the intake manifold with a longer line, either from the front or rear as I remember. Just not the lower side.

Sara and I will be visiting grandchildren, our first born is turning three. I can't believe she is growing up so fast without us. And my grandson is one. Go Emmet Joseph. See you folks in the fall with helmets on.

I can't figure out how to view the 2018-2019 Perm Number "event". Too stupid I guess. I want to make sure Sara and I have our normal numbers: 122 and 227.

FAST Open Autocross - Jul 28 @ Brooksville

M3 - Only one point separates Tyler Williams in 1st from Joe Vance 2nd. And somebody could steal 3rd from Clauser if he doesn't place well. . M3 will be the one to watch on the 28th, there are five drivers registered who have taken first place this season. Four of the five are in competition for a ...

offset wheel calculator

I found this one today. Not only can you do different wheel offsets but will show you what different size tires will look like at the same time in comparison. Neat.
This is the best I've seen. Thanks.

Miata Tire Suggestions

Is tire life a concern? Not really. It will be a 2 driver car, so I'd like to at least get a season out of them. Something to consider for RE-71s -- they're more heat sensitive. It's not a terrible problem, but in hot weather with two drivers, or hot weather and one or both drivers who like to slid...

Miata Tire Suggestions

I have a 160 runs on my RE 71s and I know I can get 15-20 more. I think the big tire killer on Miatas is lack of ABS which flat spots the tires. I can't get 160 runs on my Rivals and I don't flat spot my tires, maybe RE-71's are that much better. But RE-71's max out @ 205; Rivals are available as 2...

6/30 best day evar!

The morning session was an epic battle in M3, everyone one of the front runners except Curtis showed up. If I have done my math correctly, only one point separates Tyler from myself going into the final Open event to determine First Place for the year. I think only two point separates the next two c...

2019 Rule Change Ideas

Or... we lower the bar for ALL of S5 in some way. Allow 205 tires, but restrict them to 300TW? This is an idea that has come up before. It might be time to "kick the tires" again. S5 having a treadwear restriction instead of a width restriction. Using Tire Rack's default search size of 225/45/17 in...

Jason's thought is good. But, Joe, you're going in the wrong direction! To sum up: We don't want to mess with S5. Doesn't need to be more open. Doesn't have the numbers to be more restrictive right now. And we don't have anywhere near the numbers to support a class between S4 and S5. Let me try one...

I'm still in favor of giving all HS cars a class to be competitive in regardless of their tire width. Lumping HS with ES just isn't fair to so many cars... Looking at Nationals results, the fastest HS driver would finish 14th in ES... Something like my Accord or Dan's Mazda 3 *would* be eligible fo...

Proposal: Allowing Addition of Forced Induction in Modified

I think Loren should get the front runners of M3 together and ask to compete in M3 in his car with boost. If everyone says yes, he is G2G for the upcoming season. If, after the season, they change their minds, he bumps up to M2. Steve, you are out of luck. You will be too much to handle with boost ...
