I'm ready!

I haven't upgraded or replaced a thing since I lasted autocrossed the Miata. The nut holding the wheel needs the rust removed, though.

Blew a head gasket, sent in my injectors and found out two were lagging 20% behind the other two.

Ponied up for some 1040cc ethanol-friendly top feed injectors, got my head ported/decked/3-angle valve job, new seals, etc. Also did some PCV re-routing that should have been done when the car was originally converted to turbo.

I'm tired of working on this thing, can't wait to race it!

My DP program had set backs...

All my off season motor work cost plenty of $$ and plenty of time, and did not result in any real power gains. very disappointing.

My tire supplier has got out of the sports car racing business, so I'm lost on tires...

My aero program didn't even get started over the winter :?

THe new (to me) shocks are way over budget due to rebuild cost. Now, if they work poorly or if I missed the spring rates, that will be batting a 1000...

I feel like I'm going to be watching those ESP yahoos motoring away... at least for a while... SHocks and aero will sort out during the year... Tires are a real wild card...

I can't wait to hear the post dyno excuses.

Simple and crude, but effective. The car too.

The old '68 is as ready as it can be. New hoosiers, new drilled and slotted rotors with hawk pads, suspension adjusted and crossweighed, super coolant in the radiator, and the driver has lost 20 lbs to bring the total weight down. The only thing left is to put on the power steering and then that's all she wrote!
go fast,........avoid orange bumps!!!

Blowin' Head Gaskets like it's my job...

No excuses after the dyno, but I do have a good one if I don't make the numbers I should be ;)
