Anyone out there who pulled their SM parts off when they made their Miata for ITA? Don't need shocks..........

Learn to drive it before you change it....

Mind your own business. :)


We're out of adjustments and we need a good starting point. I don't want to go throwing springs, bars or shocks at it without a base line set-up.

Like I said, learn to drive it before you change ANYTHING...

I can guarantee you that you have too much corner entry speed and instant throttle stabbing from your FWD days. You 'think' it's loose because you are driving it that way. Give it one more set of races, you are headed the wrong direction...

Slow down more, power on sooner, profit. You don't need to make the car rotate...

Trust me.

I've got a front sway and end links from a 95 SM that you can have cheap

Abhi? I'll check the shop for our stuff. I bet we have the springs and bars.

All set. thanks everyone.


If an SM can now do a 1:15.9 at NHMS, why wouldn't adding xx horse power to the equation be the hot set-up? (what do the better SMs make for HP?) Granted, in no way am I saying I have the talent to come anywhere close to that in a SM............... :shrug:

When you run at the time of the day when all the track records are falling, then your times are great! Lap times fell about a second in Q2.

The flaw in your theory is that the SM set-up is good...you can't do better? You are on your own now my friend.
