Dunnellon Autocross - April 20

I will not make it this weekend, the silver Miata is not back together after putting in a new clutch. A week away in Colorado set my repairs back. :-D Found a screw in one of my tires from three weeks ago, explains why my air pressure was wacky.

Sara and I can not attend Saturday's event as we are leaving today to arrange and attend my father's funeral in Kentucky. He had been...

If anyone is interested in a codrive for instruction or tire money or for the joy of direct competition, I'm game. bump.

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.

2018-19 Season - What's goin' down?

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 ...

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...
