I believe it is 89 db. Your car would never pass. I got dinked with my car at a PDA event last year with a muffler on the car.

Yup, I got tossed at PDA too...

What about the Spec Miata with the spec MazdaComp exhaust? Think that'll pass?

Greg: My SM did. But others wouldn't. Weird how we all had the same exhaust parts, bought from the same source, but they were different dBs. I could hear other cars OVER the sound of mine on the track.

However, I believe mine was at 89.

So, how did it go?

I was at LRP today with PDA in the Spec Miata. Dreary day. Cloudy, showery. The first session was dry, but cold; all subsequent sessions were damp and/or outright wet.

Second round of sessions an A/S Pontiac Trans-Am oiled up the track from NoName through the uphill; crews tossed clay absorbant all over it. Of course, mix a wet track, oil, and kitty litter and you end up with oily mud...

During the next session the track was red-flagged, and it stayed red for at least 10-15 minutes. I was in the B-paddock but didn't hear any announcements...soon thereafter a train of wreckers comes down under the bridge and hooked up to the lead wrecker was an effed-up 2003 BMW M3. And I mean SERIOUSLY fudged: front end knocked off, tail punched in, back glass gone, roof seriously creased. You could hear the collective "sheeee-it" as he proceeded into the hot pits. Best I can figger he looped it on the right hander entering NoName and backed it into the inner cliff wall. I'm quite certain he got an upside-down look at the world, judging by the scratch mark on the hood, roof, and decklid (that was sitting on the ground next to him).

My second session was up and I hit the damp track. It was absolutely dreadful: oil all over the track (almost lost the tail twice in Big Bend, and that was tippy-toeing around), mud in NoName from RocketBoy, and kitty litter/oil mud all the way up the Uphill. After negotiating that mess for two laps I figured I had nothing to gain by continuing so we loaded it on the trailer and came home.

Matt swears from now on he will never have a car ready before May at the soonest...

Occasionally Matt has a good idea!

Joe, look for us in a white Miata with the orange tow van. Might also have the black Miata.

I will be in a silver spec V. Race car is not ready yet so I just want to get back on track after the long winter.
