Just pop in an 8-track or cassette.

Ordered a RB 1.125" tubular front sway bar for the car, should arrive with plenty of time to install before the next event on the 20th.

Also, instead of purchasing the RB sway bar bracket blocks, I came across a localish company making an alternative solution to this at basically the same price point. I got them in the mail within 48 hours and the quality is quite nice. They look to have a bit larger footprint over the RB blocks, not sure if that will matter or not, but why not.

More work on the Miata today. Today's agenda included rerouting the egr vacuum line to get rid of the CEL, plus I installed a Racing Beat FSB and a set of sway bar bracket blocks from Naroh Motorsports in Florida. Excited to feel the understeer next weekend at Brooksville. ImageImageImage
