LED headlight bulbs and LED interior lighting because it’s kind of ridiculous that a 50k truck doesn’t have them from the factory. Also all weather mats. I’m ready for camping this weekend!
Got some trade in offers for a new 4Runner, most dealers were offering way way way below what I was expecting for the BRZ. Took it to a shop that specializes in buying/selling sports cars and they gave me very very close to kbb value.
Set a new PB, but there’s still a TON of time to be gained on the new suspension setup. The track was completely green because of the rainstorms in Dallas the last couple weeks, my AIM Solo2 said my theoretical best time was in the 1:29.xx range. I tried a new line through rattlesnake that helped me pick up a full…
As much as I love having a 400hp BRZ, I don’t need two sports cars. I’m starting the part out of the BRZ this week and will hopefully have it sold in the next couple months. Planning on getting a 2019 Voodoo Blue TRD Pro 4Runner to tow the Miata.
Had to borrow a Dremel from a co-worker but finally installed the Momo wheel that’s been sitting in my garage for a month.
I raised the front suspension by 1/2" and removed the fender liner because the tires kept rubbing when going over bumps. That issue seems to be solved now, so back to Firestone for an alignment. I’m also going to be rolling the fenders tomorrow so I’m not slicing into my tires. I don’t like that I have zero rake now,…
Waiting on my tuner to overlay the 93 and E85 dyno sheets for both 10 and 12psi, but holy crap this thing is scary now. I have no traction in first or second gear. I had to pass a car this morning and I went from 40 to 75 terrifyingly fast. I was giggling like a maniac the whole time.
Got a Walbro 485 fuel pump, Delicious tuning flex fuel kit, and 550cc injectors. Gonna get tuned tomorrow for flex fuel and that should put the BRZ at ~400 whp. Can’t wait!
Here’s mine from February 6 years ago. Reading through the comments I realized how much help I got over the years from this community. I helped found SMU’s FSAE program (Hilltop Motorsports), have had multiple project cars, started a car club (DFW86 what upp), and generally got really involved with the community. My…
Banana Racecar is alive and well, got lots of goodies in the last couple months, but this is how it sits right now.
My BRZ paint got delayed another week, and my rental is a Camry. I’ve been driving my track Miata almost everywhere and there are ~30 days until my next track event. I’m having withdrawals. Post your track photos to help me get through the next month.
My BRZ was sideswiped, literally two days after i got it back from my tuner, and I dropped it off at my favorite body shop in Dallas, JP Euro. They have done killer work on some of my friends’ cars and my family’s cars. Unfortunately the K1X crystal white pearl on the BRZ is notoriously difficult to paint match and…
Completely stock (except wheels) NA Miata goes racing! I spent 4 months rebuilding this Miata to running and driving condition and finally got to take it to Motorsport Ranch for an SCCA Track Night.
Impulse signed up for a track day in the Miata to force me to finish prepping it this weekend. I’m currently running OEM semi-metallic brakes/rotors that I replaced a couple months ago. They probably have ~1500 miles on them. Fluid is Motul RBF600.
I’m gonna blame myself for this one. Wastegate bolt backed out and came loose, pressed up against the engine block and bent itself.
I found out that 7" Jeep headlights fit perfectly onto an NA Miata, WITHOUT MODIFICATIONS. So naturally, I bought some and gave the Miata some drugged out eyes. Then I found someone at work that has the same headlights as my Miata.
The greatest sporting event in the world starts in two days, join the Oppo bracket challenge to fight for bragging rights
Advan Racing RGD2 15x8 wheels and new front lip on the Miata! I had a small ducktail spoiler ordered but its backordered for 3 months so I cancelled that. Anyone have suggestions for a ducktail for the Miata, that doesn’t cover the 3rd brake light?
Look at that strapping young idiot. That idiot decided that taking his turbo BRZ to a track day would be a good idea, even though it had a series of small problems. That idiot is me. Don’t be me.
