I wanna do Palmer and Thompson by the end of the summer! I’ll find out when they are! Happy you’ll be trying some tarmac stuff!

Thank you Ian for allowing a test fit. Sold on 245’s with some suspension adjustments!











Track day bro! Another set for another blue car!

Eeeeek! Thrilled about yet another steering wheel! Just need a hub and QD, but will probably wait to install when I do my STi rack (thanks Ian for another bright idea)!





Also, wing is back! I was getting so sad looking at it all bare!

Updates!

Worksbell QD and hub. How could I resist the Prodrive edition? Should be a quickie install once the Miata is out of my garage!



Raised up about 3/4” to eliminate some rub. Sorry stancenation!




A few shots from Track Night @ Thompson! Wicked fun! And hail Satan, the RE71Rs were my saving grace!

Deets on wheel size, offset, and tire size? Alignment specs?

Looking to go up from 17x7.5 and 225/45/17 myself, but don't know what it would take to get a wider set up on there. I'm rolled on all 4 corners and have coils.

Running a 17x8 +45 with a 245/40! I’m rolled only on the front and they fit!

SCCA NER autox from this past weekend. Not sure that there were any action shots. And couldn’t get a photo with the Pat in it!

Not so sure how many more events I’ll make it to this year. A hardtop was found for the MX5, so plans for rallyx are a go!

Hopefully I have the opportunity of get this Prodrive wheel/hub/QD in before the end of the week and maybe I can make (at least) one more track day!

Really digging this setup. DBA 4000s which I’ve coveted for some time. The coolest thing (I think) about them is the little color change paint indicators when you exceed a certain temperature. Not that it holds much use for my application, but nerd points for sure. And since the addition of Hawk pads to my daily, I carried that through here with Hawk HP+ pads. Holy shit, talk about bite. Lock ‘em up at speed, yikes! A learning curve for sure. Thank goodness there’s another autox I can make prior to Wicked Bro Meat so I don’t totally embarrass myself.
