Early in the first session I ran across an oldish Mustang GT500 who was absolutely not letting anyone pass. I was sixth in line and figured it would be easier to pit and ask for space than wait my turn, assuming there was ever going to be a turn. By the time I got to the pits, the Mustang had already been black-flagged and there were no other problems after that as he was busted down to Novice.

      And then lots more words...
      It's experiences like this that make me rethink a decision to sell the Miata every time it comes up. Albeit mine is far from stock but, the fun you have keeping up with or passing cars worth many times more than yours and then getting the "You're Fast!" response is so damn pleasing. It most likely won't happen as much in my RX-8.

      As for your comment regarding the GT500, that's what scares me away from TNIA. It's a fantastic concept but, there isn't enough governance in it for me. I'm typically in the intermediate groups at my local track. I have no problem spotting flag stations, no problem NOT following the car in front me, and I've had my fair share of hairy incidents. I'm comfortable in that class. What I've heard from attendees at TNIA is there are many beginners that don't think they belong in that group or they don't want to deal with noobs. Then the advanced group can be kind of nutty at these events too so, people knock themselves down a notch so they don't have to deal with the egos. So now you have a group of "I ain't no noob!" and "I'm fast, I just don't want to deal with those jerks" and then me. It just doesn't sound controlled enough for my liking.

      That was a water drop on the bottom of the badge, FYI.

      Proper photos:

      One year anniversary on my 2018 Club.

      Car's running great, no issues to report.

      It's been a pleasure owning and driving this car. People compliment me all the time. Very rare car.

      Miata drivers of all generations wave/wave back at me when I pass them on the road

      2900 miles.

      I hope I never have to give up having a convertible. It's like therapy for me If I'm feeling down, I hop in the Miata and take a ride. All's good.

Sold for 3100 (after I reduced the non-hardtop price from 3600), and If I stipulate that the hardtop with it's rare defroster and the dry rotted ice tires are worth 1200 together, I broke even. Not to bad considering I owned it for over 3 years, and only put in an exhaust and a battery.

      Anyone want a factory (not aftermarket) montego blue hardtop with defrost?



      I'd generally shift at 6K in my NA, my MSM has an unfortunately low 6500 RPM redline, and with how late the turbo spools up I only have 1800 RPM to play with. I'm sure there are ways to get boost to come on earlier and that'll make it much more enjoyable. I'd even be open to a turbo swap to bring the power up, since I'd be shocked to be above 150 WHP.

      Ironically, in town and below 30 MPH, the NA was actually more fun. The gear spacing was just perfect, but it did run out of steam in a hurry.

      Around here an oem hardtop with defrost in reasonable condition sells for $1k within a couple of days typically.

      I'm moving on for real this time - car doesn't get driven, and I've definitely shifted interests away from cars and more towards cycling/traveling.

      First dibs goes to a friend of mine, if he decides to pass, I'll let everyone know. I know several people on here and in other places had expressed interest the last time I waffled on keeping the Meata.

      Very excited to see how these Flyings Miata frame rails feel. Also a little scared now that I've removed the carpet and dash. I'm sure the engine conversion is moving along. It has to be. Meanwhile parts from the engine and interior are piling up.











      I'm definitely thinking about doing the butterfly brace after the engine and trans are in, but won't know if there will be enough clearance with the Nissan 6MT
