TWS CCW 1:56.6 - 2009 Nissan GT-R @ Texas World Speedway 2.9 mile CCW March 15, 2009
In my Nissan GT-R on March 15 2009. I moved up to the Yellow group a month
earlier but imo only because the car is so darn good. I ran this lap in
1:56.6 on a slightly damp track and as you can see there is a lot of room
for improvement, but a sub 2:00 here is impressive regardless.
I've shed over 20 seconds off my best lap since I first started driving on
a track 6 months ago. I good driver could probably break 1:50 in this car.
Only mods are an HKS USA resonated midpipe and some Ferodo DS2500 brake
pads that replaced the worn OEM ones..
V8 Miata on Targa Newfoundland - Garnish stage
Ride along with the Targa Miata crew on one of the classic Targa
Newfoundland stages in 2011. Garnish has a bit of everything - high speed
through the woods, tight little town streets, smooth pavement, rough
pavement - it's a real workout for the car and the crew. You can hear the
100 mph wheelspin right near the beginning of the stage. The team was
leading the Open Division of the race at this point.
The car is powered by a modified L33 V8 engine, making between 350 and 400
hp and a 6-speed transmission. The conversion was done using parts from
V8Roadsters, as are all the V8 conversions from Flyin' Miata. Suspension is
the FM AFCO setup, working hard in this stage. It was built and driven by
Keith Tanner and navigated by Janel Tanner.

Miata's V8 conversions, see http://www.flyinmiata.com/v8

Best track session of the day. My car, driven by my brother. Lap times are
2:05:47, 2:07:xx, 2:06:xx
Day one was a bust with balding rear tires and rain. But day two turned out
to be beautiful. Started to rebuild my confidence again so the lap times
aren't that great. By the end of the day I had just broken into the sub
2:15:xx. Fast lap of the weekend set by tanman311 at ~2.05.47.

Regular Car Reviews: 1990 MX5 NA Miata
Looking for RCR's original Miata video? Here it is:
The Mazda NA Miata MX-5 debuted at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, but it was
manufactured inHiroshima, because they've made it their mission to avoid
any more bombs. It was conceived as a small roadster, and the first gen
featured the 1.6 L straight four with DOHC. It sold 400,000 units from
1989-1997, which is pretty impressive when you consider that small
roadsters were on the way out at the end it was released. The Alfa Romeo
Spider was in production, but it was the only small roadster produced at a
comparable volume, so the MX-5 filled a gaping hole in the market. In the
first generation, this was a car for the kind of guy who uses the term
“confirmed bachelor” to avoid addressing his sexuality in mixed
company. But the Miata would grew to be the pre-cum of bro culture, with
later generations serving as the full load. It was derivative of other
roadsters, but that was part of its charm. It had a reverence for the
classics but also an inflated sense of its own importance. It's the Kanye
West of cars.
