    Ha, I call mine the same thing, although it's getting to be more and more brown than yellow. If I can make it 200k without having to scrap or Flinstone the car I'll be a happy camper. Only 40,000 miles to go!

    Sorry, somehow I missed seeing this earlier. I bought this kit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 No hog rings on the P5 seats, woohoo!! And 2 months in, I absolutely love it. Still need to do the passenger seat, but that's simply a matter of pulling it out of car now that the wiring is in place.

    Was running touge earlier today with some local car people, and the two quickest cars in the corners were an NA Miata and my P5, which the Miata couldn*t really pull away from even in the hairpins. Given that I have no additional chassis bracing, old suspension bushings, and old swaybar endlinks, I*m really impressed that I could grip almost as well as the NA in front of the pack.

    Sanctioned, or street race? That must've been loads of fun!

    Did the car ever lose grip or plow?

    Little bit of plow but I had it mostly under control.

    If you intend on going back out there, but don't think you'll upgrade any suspension bits before then, try setting your tire pressure as follows (if you're on stockers + stock tire size)

    Rear: 28
    Front: 26

    That should help with the understeer a bit. I run those pressures on the stockers with decent improvement in grip.

    Last time I was on that road my pressures were near that point, but it gripped way better today after putting it at 32psi all around
