Title: First Autocross in '05 Mazdaspeed Miata
Post by: msm650 on July 13, 2016, 02:38:59 AM
I went to an autocross school this past weekend and got about 30 runs in.  It was a blast in this car.  I ran a 2009 WRX last year.

Current Mods:

Racing Beat Front Sway Bar
Koni Yellows
205/50R16 Bridgestone RE71R
Magnaflow Exhaust

Thing handles incredibly well and is a blast to drive.  I am running E Street right now.  I plan to run BSP either for the 2017 or 2018 season.

Side note: how does one embed a youtube video in a post...? I can't get it to work  :sad1:

Looks like you have a similar build to the parts that I have been looking at.  I am going for an autocross car that can still handle a track day or two.

Thanks for the info.  Links it is :)

Yeah the build is working well so far as I learn to drive and mod.  I highly recommend getting Hydra or Megasquirt ASAP if you're going to keep autocrossing, 6500 RPMs is horrible.  I did an Evolution autocross school at NOLA Motorsports a few weekends ago and all the instructors said it was the most fun car there!

Happened to be a match tour event.  It was rather tough in terms of competition...
