If you are looking for the hardest Miata trivia quiz, that one will be hard to beat. Lots of very arcane bits of info. 5 of 10 for me.

Sort of like asking Mazda rotary fans for the geometric name of the shape of a rotary engine piston (tri-lobed envelope of the epitrochoid curve).

I only got a 5, but if I didn't keep second guessing myself I would have gotten 8.  I have a habit of answering and changing my mind and it usually screws me up.

6/10, guess on one, and I knew the timing belt one cause I just did it!  I'm happy with that, I don't count myself as a real Miata geek.
