    I've got one of 2000 1.8 models. LIke the car at the ARRC last year, it started life as an SSC car. The engine is not the same as in the Miata (see below), which is not to say that dyno/ ECM mods...

    VIR CCPS Incident?

    We had to DNF Sunday's CCPS as the brakes on the Protege gave up the ghost. Were loading up when we heard about a rumble at impound- an SRF hit an emergency vehicle? We didn't want to hang around,...

    Hey, y'all, didn't mean to start a brawl. We've run the car for years as SSC, will start the ITB conversion this winter. There's one more event in a couple weeks that counts for next year's points,...

    Kill switch mandatory?

    This is likely a silly question (though I have skimmed the GCR), but is it mandatory to have a kill switch for IT? We have an old SSC car that we plan to convert to ITB, thought about running it in...

    POG at the SIC?

    I'll be attending my first SIC next month- looking forward to it. Gas question- assume we can use Plain Old Gas, from any pump? Wondered if we had to buy at the track.

    Don't know, have to ask my "co-owner" his thoughts. (My vote is this ITB thing, but he may not be feeling it).
