Free Miata Jackson Racing Intake stuff

We used to run these on both of our cars, so we've got lots of pieces. At least one (if not 2) of the airboxes are in good shape. I'd like them out of the garage. I'm happy to leave them in front of the garage for pick up. If I don't hear from anyone soon, into the trash they go.... https://www.drop...

Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

That being said...I also prefer Carbotechs and run them on all my track cars. Don't overthink it. Put a good set of new street pads on...brake them in properly on fresh (or resurfaced) rotors and have fun! One good note there: Carbotech/Gloc pads are very rotor friendly. That means they won't do a ...

Re: Do it all brake pads (Miata content)

I'd 2nd the suggestion for Carbotech XP8/XP10 (or also Gloc G8/G10).

I used to street drive my S4 to the track, and ran carbotechs all the time and they worked well.

For my Miata now I run XP12/XP10 (front/back) or G12/G10.

The non-corrosive pad dust on those families of pads is a nice plus.

Re: What tire and wheel size for miata track car?

Spec miata size is 15x7 (205/50/15), so there are lots of wheels out there in that size. You can also get cheap hoosiers (SM7) in that size. There is a tradeoff between rolling resistance (straight line speed) and grip (corner speeds) that you should be aware of. There are a lot of folks running 15x...

Re: Watkins Glen info Sept 9-10 2019

You should be able to. The lot is generally unlocked/open. If not, go to the main entrance and ask for help.

Re: Anyone know when can we enter WGI to drop cars?

The usual is that you can use one of the outside lots, but no access until the track opens Monday morning.

Re: Next year's schedule

One thing to think about as options are being discussed: Tracks are mostly fully booked (there aren't many days available at tracks, especially weekends). Clubs generally have right of first refusal on the same dates each following year. If you give up those dates (by skipping Tremblant for a year, ...

Re: Next year's schedule

The club at lime rock has made it nearly impossible for renters to get 2 complete days back to back. Many clubs now have to rent two half-days.

And 2 days rental there is very expensive. I believe well over $40k.

Re: Dynojet chassis dyno

I'd suggest https://www.aceperformancesystems.com/dyno-tuning/ in Tewksbury, MA, especially if you need tuning.
I realize it's not in NH though.

Re: Spec Miata for sale...any info?

No specifics. Do you need basic info on SM?

For example, the Bilstein shocks are on their way out, replaced by much better Penske.

Yes, the Crevier has 93 or 94.
