All in one day?!
No joke! I WAS planning on driving it down to Macon today, but it's pouring down rain, and old azenis are scarey in any standing water lol. And there's a leak in the window seals, so she's staying under the cover until this weekend. Points 1 here we come!

So your miata is basically a "good weather only" car?
spent all day trying to replace the soft top with an aftermarket one that didnt have holes cut into it...
only to find out after countless hours or wrangling it into place, that they sent me the wrong one, and it wont reach the windshield to latch, and wont lay down flat all the way either
soo.. tomorrow its coming out, and the hardtops going back on... and really unfortunate, its perfect convertible weather right now...

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.
well, that and the fact that the old RT215 azenis are freakin scarey the second you hit just 1mm of standing water. They're actually VERY good on a wet track, just not if there's any puddles. I actually took the rear sway bar OFF yesterday (as opposed to just disconnected), and this morning after I get done working course setup, I'm planning on dropping it about 3/4" or so all the way around to settle down the body roll that comes from it being up so high. I'm hardly hitting bump stops right now (stupid 550# springs that I love so much lol), so it shouldn't hurt to drop it a bit more. Worst case, I don't like it and I bring it back up some.Originally Posted by Antoine
1st 'real' autocross for her today. Had some tire-rubbing issues, but nothing that can't be fixed in about 30 minutes. I ended up 2nd in class (got beat by a girl in a well prepped CRX by .024 seconds). I'm really pleased by how the car felt, and I'm starting to learn how to drive a light, tail happy, tossable RWD car, and it's SO much fun! Hopefully someone got some pictures. My last (and best) run felt so good. The car's really neutral w/ a hint of oversteer on throttle which is about how I like it. All in all, an awesome day spent dodging cones
Sounds fun...Any chance you can post some pics of your baby in action?
Mine stayed in the garage all day.
But arriving by UPS Ground soon: blue NGK wires, fresh NGK plugs, Axxis metal master pads.

I put her back under her cover last night after I drover her to and from work
I have yet to find the time to appy all my suspension goodies and new body parts on (working my fanny off.... getting ready for the birth of my son... moving to a new home).
So... for the time being, my miatar is a virtual "rat racer" daily driver.

Ran the tank down and filled it with 91 octane and drove into the garage...
