Thought I'd spruce the place up a bit with a new theme.  Thoughts or issues?

Spec Miata / New Front Subframe Braces
« Last post by ChrisS on April 28, 2017, 07:17:00 AM »
Probably a good idea for longevity.  Does eliminate one of my favorite jackstand point though!

The braces weld into place in between the lower control arm mount and the main body of the subframe and have a large dimple die hole in the center of them to help give them strength and also serve as an inspection hole for tech to be able to see the original OEM subframe welds.

Front subframes may be reinforced by use of Mazda Part #0000-04-5989 (Subframe Reinforcement). If installed, the Subframe Reinforcement shall be welded around the perimeter only. No other modifications to subframes are permitted.

Who wants some?

Race Discussion Board / SCCA Seeking Input on Contact Rules
« Last post by ChrisS on April 28, 2017, 06:23:42 AM »
Sounds like the SCCA is looking at potential changes to discourage contact:

At first blush I like the idea of a post-race impound for contact has some merit taken with the suggestion that it focus more on mentor-ship and education than punishment.

What do you all think?

There may be a new player in the hot street tire game.  Nexen is offering a contingency program:
