Stock engine Miata vs V8 Mustang

In this in-car video I chase a V8 Mustang in my stock engine 130 hp '95 Miata on the 1.1-mi East Track at Firebird International Raceway near Phoenix, AZ during a ProAutoSports HPDE event. The Mustang was much faster on the short straights and I was a fair bit faster in the turns, but I lacked the hp to get by -- and the Mustang driver may not have been aware he was actually holding me up. My lap times were nearly three seconds slower while following the Mustang during the early track sessions that day than when I was running on an open track. But in the last track session of the day when the Mustang driver had more experience on this track, I had a far tougher time catching him than I did in the first couple track sessions in the morning -- he's really quite a decent driver when he knows the track, and his Mustang is well setup.

Mazda MX-5 on board on the track
Like me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/davide458italia. My Blog: http://www.davide458italia.blogspot.it. Full HD video 1080p. Description: I filmed this Mazda MX-5 Miata NA at the Modena racetrack during the Japanese Cars Meeting 2013. In the video you can see the start up of the engine, then some on board action on the track: the driver raced a Citroen Saxo VTS and tried to battle an Honda S2000. In the video you can see also some drifting. Amazing car, fantastic experience, I didn't imagine that a 1.6-liter engine can give so much fun! Ho filmato questa Mazda MX-5 Miata NA Prima Serie all'Autodromo di Modena durante il Japanese Cars Meeting 2013. Nel video potete vedere l'accensione del motore, poi alcune scene riprese dall'interno: il pilota ha gareggiato con una Citroen Saxo VTS e ha cercato di dare battaglia a una Honda S2000. Nel video potete vedere anche qualche derapata. Auto fantastica, esperienza favolosa, non pensavo che un motore 1.6 potesse regalare così tanto divertimento!

What happens in the transmission when you double clutch / Heel Toe Downshift???
Trying to do everything in one take is nerve racking, as it's nearly impossible to do perfectly. Minor corrections: I said the clutch pedal and throw out bearing are not wear items, I meant not high wear items, compared to the clutch disk. Also, when I mention buying a cheap car to practice, I mean if you own a manual transmission track car that is not your daily driver. Finally, I didn't talk about the syncros. You can do this with one clutch pedal action, but you make the syncros speed up the intermediate shaft. When you double clutch, you bring the intermediate shaft up to speed with the clutch disc, which has more capacity to do so than the synchros. Minor point, but you will see prolonged synchro life when you double clutch. Also, it is not the mass of the servo or engine but the power created by electricity of gasoline that is responsible, but the mass is responsible for the inertia.





Miata muffler vs no muffler
This is my 96' 1.8 Miata. The muffler is this video is a magnaflow muffler that was cut open at both ends, had the packing taken out, and re-welded. https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/428347_325923107451519_954 735549_n.jpg TAGS: Nissan, Bugatti, Veyron, BMW, Audi, VW, Golf, A3, A4, A5, A1, A2, A6, A8, Mercedes,SL 65 AMG, AMG, Pagani, , Zonda, Lamborghini, Murcielago, Diablo, Ferrari, F40, F50, 458 Italia ,Ford, Focus ST, Jaguar, Porsche, GTR, Skyline, Toyota, Supra, Impreza, Mitsubishi, Evo, M3, M5, M6, RS4, RS5, RS6, Switzer, P800, Cayenne, Panamera, turbo, Eclipse, Honda, Acceleration / Beschleunigung Ferrari F430, SSC Aero, BMW M6 Hamann, Gemballa Mirage GT, Mercedes SLR, Dodge Viper Srt-10, Ferrari F430 Novitec, Carrera Gt Techart, Mosler MT900, Ferrari 575 & Aston Martin Vanquish S, Gemballa Mirage GT, Mv Agusta F4, Brabus Widestar, TVR Sagaris, Gumpert Apollo, Porsche 356 SpeedSter, Ferrari 550 SuperAmerica, Ferrari Enzo, Bugatti Veyron, Leblanc Mirabeau, Gemballa Avalanche, Bentley Continental GT by Monaco Elite, McLaren F1, Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale & Ferrari 288 GTO, Ferrari 360 Modena Spider & Rolls Royce Phantom, Austin Healey, Mercedes SLR 722, Aston Martin DB9 Volante by Mansory, Fiat 500, Bugatti Veyron, Gemballa GTR 600 Gullwing, Bentley Continental GT, Audi R8, Ford GT, Bugatti Veyron, Maserati Birdcage, Lamborghini Murcielago, Koenigsegg CCX, Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Lamborghini Murcielago Lp640, Mercedes SLR 722, Gemballa Avalanche, Porsche Cayenne by Gemballa GT750, Gemballa Mirage GT, Corvette Z06 & Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari Enzo, Porsche 911 GT1, Lamborghini Diablo GT, Maybach 62, Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, Ferrari, Lancia Stratos, BMW M5, Pagani Zonda, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, Porsche 911 GT2, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Aerokit, Nissan Skyline R34, Mercedes SLR, Porsche 911 GT3, Maserati Granturismo, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Mercedes CLK DTM AMG Cabrio, Pagani Zonda, Ferrari's & Gallardo, Bugatti Veron, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder & Lp640, Mercedes CLK DTM AMG Cabrio, Morgan, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Shelby Series 1, Pagani Zonda, Lmaborghini Miura Jota, Aston Martin DB5, Ferrari F40, Ferrari FXX Audi R8, Bugatti Veyron Pegaso, Rolls Royce Drophead, Range Rover Arden & BMW X5 Lumma, Bugatti Eb110, Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, Porsche GT3 RS, Mercedes S65 AMG, Lamborghini Gallardo SE, Aston Martin DB9 by Mansory, Lamborghini Gallardo IMSA, Rolls Royce Phantom, Gemballa Mirage GT, Gemballa Avalanche, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, BMW M5 Hamann by Lumma, Lamborghini Gallardo, Maybach 62S, Brabus G, Mercedes SLR 722, Ford GT & Range Rover, Mercedes CLK 63 AMG, Bentley Arnage Drophead Coupé, Audi S8 RRR, Porsche Cayman & Ferrari 612 Scaglietti & Porsche Carrera GT, Audi Q7 by ABT, Pagani Zonda, Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Continental GT, Alfa Romeo GT by Autodelta, Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Murcielago, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Aerokit, Cadillac XLR, Lamborghini Gallardo SE, Maserati Granturismo, Mercedes SL 55 AMG whit Asanti rims, Alpina Z8, Porsche turbo & Ferrari 599 GTB, Lamborghini Murcielago by Hamann, Porsche Cayenne by Gemballa, Bentley Continental GT by Mansory, Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, BMW M5 Hamann, Bmw M5 V10 Hurricane by G-Power, Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Porsche Carrera GT, Campagna T-Rex, Ford Mustang Eleanor, Mercedes SLR 722, Porsche 911 turbo, Ferrari F430 Novitec Rosso, Ferrari 599GTB, Gemballa GT750, Pagani Zonda, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari 575M by Novitec, Rolls Royce Phantom, Hummer H2 & Mercedes SLR 722, Bentley Continental by Project Kahn, Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, BMW M6 Hamann, Porsche Cayenne Cyclone by Hamann, Lamborghini Murcielago

Porsche Hunting 2 - Miata vs Porsches
Laguna Seca Session 3 on March 19th, 2008. Bunch of black Porsches eventually end up in the rearview. Looks like a Carrera convertible, then a Carrera hardtop, then a 914, then something that looks like it has a luggage rack for a spoiler, and then uh...well that's a Mitsubishi Eclipse, and then a Boxer.





KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School
A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular little roadster.

Miata v8 5.0 Quiet!
Got it too quiet. Shorty headers, air injected cats, H pipe, resonators, Magnaflows. Wife and neighbors like it. Fine for now, can make the resonators optional later with flanges if I want the music louder.





C5 Z06 vs 911 GT3RS at firebird east
I started right behind this beautiful 911 GT3 RS and 20 minutes later, ended the session right behind him. I consider that a pretty good showing against such a fantastic car. My car is a 2001 Z06 with 350whp, Hawk HP+ pads, and mismatched street tires.





March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group
This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6 nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step above beginners). I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson. Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!! https://picasaweb.google.com/106213036764439306024/2003ShinsenSM

Watch and listen as we install the #900-494 Miata Performance Exhaust by Cobalt onto our 1996 Miata. This car is featured on our website as our Stage 3 build. The install is straightforward and the system sounds great - we've got a revvin' clip at the end so you can hear for yourself. This system is for 1990-1997 Mazda Miatas, find it at MossMiata.com.





Turbo 1.6 Miata on the track
A blast from the past by request. This is the car that started Flyin' Miata on the track at our 2005 Summer Camp. The car is running an FM II with a Link ECU in this video, and our notes say that it's running about 6 psi on a stock engine. Suspension is probably a Flyin' Miata Stage 2 setup and the tires are some worn RA1s. These days, the car has a built 1.6 engine and runs a Hydra Nemesis for engine management - but as you can see, it's still pretty fun in the lesser specification. Driven by Bill Cardell of Flyin' Miata at Grand Junction Motor Speedway.
