I have to de-camber the front a bit as the inside corners of the tires are getting too hot and wearing out a bit faster than the outside corners. Well that is just crazy, but I believe it because I was the one who mounted them and the side walls are crazy stiff. Now I know why they cost $200 more than any of the other tires.
    Hooters FTW!!!

    Welp no one wants a fast, reliable, winning wagon. So I guess I will keep blowing tiny minds. Enjoy my new vid. Sorry about the video quality, I bought a pos camera mount from ebay. Already trashed it.

    Also you can see the oil light come on many times at many corners. I will be adding a accusump this winter.

    Alright, this is it. Thanks to all for the help and suggestions. Also thanks for everyone following and watching my vids. I hope this thread has helped people out there with their P5 builds and getting actual N/A numbers. Car has sold, and I am off and into the formula world. I had a interesting 14 years with that car and was hard to see it go, but even more hard was the loss of my 14 year old racing fan the night I picked up my new car. Every single day I would have someone there with me in the garage turning wrenches and never complaining about the music I listen to. Now it seems I will have to go down this new avenue alone.


    I dont think the new owner will be a contributor here so I will try and remember to reply to any email alerts. But I will leave you with the last racing vid doing what I do best... spinning out like a moron. Have fun kids!

    It's been fun sharing info, parts, etc with you over the years. I just love watching you blow off all those Miata's in your vids. Now an open-wheel adventure begins. Have fun and stay safe and don't be shy sharing your new on-track experiences with us here! CHEERS!!!

    Indeed Mark. Thanks for the help and the great prices! Good luck with getting your P5 back on the track. Too many goodies to let it sit too long, lol!

    Well I got to help the new owner through school, but skipped the first race due to "local flooding" rains. Nice to meet the new guy. I really feel that "us" wagon people just get it. Always a great bunch of people. Car worked great. Started like shit, But was the best looking car of the day by far. Cant wait to watch the old girl some more from a far!

    But I will be really sad when this turd dries up and flakes away.

    Thanks Patrick. Busy getting her ready for next season. Reducing weight is a big project over winter along with motor rebuild. Side windows, lighter bumpers, etc, hoping for 40 plus pounds. I'll try to post up some pictures for all who have followed your build over the years. Car was fast and consistent to drive this past season. Looking forward to more fun and beating Miatas in the coming seasons.
