    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    I parked mine in a wall

    https://youtu.be/Z50lF_KPw1k

    Seems like it will need a right front fender, inner and outer tie rod ends, right rear quarter, rear bumper and a frame rail pull on the rear corner as it buckled the trunk floor.

    Also lost a tire, but they were on the end of their life anyways.

    You got busy like I was last winter. Replaced a clutch in friends NB, installed Boss Frog double hoop roll bar, replaced rear axles, seals, bushings, wheel bearings and differential bushings in my car. A set of rear wheel bearings and axles in a friends NB and a crankshaft keyway repair kit in a friends NA. Too hot for that kind of work now in Florida, but already working on a list for next winter.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    These coincide with my HPDE schedule. Yeah, itís hot, but it still needs to be done. I didnít resolve the issue Iím experiencing, so I withdrew from Road Atlanta this Friday and Iíll assume some admin duties instead. Frustrating, but Iím not risking someone elseís car or life to get track time in a car Iím not 100% sure is GTG.

    Iíll look forward to the Charlotte Roval ( a partial night event) at the end of July, then Miatas @ AMP the following week ahead of Miatas @ the Gap.

    Gives me time to install my driver cooling system, swap out the right engine mount, maybe do more control arm bushings. Who knows, maybe get the top painted to match and a few other things.

    Sounds like you are off road for a while. Glad you are OK. My condolences. Hope to see you at a meet soon.

    I should buy the SCCA shirt that says '4 off lawn care'

    but the damage isn't terrible, and people are throwing parts at me to get it back on track.

    My next race is at the end of September, so I have time to work on it. I'd like it finished up by the end of august so I can shake it down some. No condolences needed. It is racing and I was giving it my all. I just ran out of talent!

    there will be more vids later. Just need to download the data from my phone and spend some time with race render today.
