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.
A 250 hp Miata vs a 430 hp Corvette
ProAutoSports and Bob Bondurant team up to hold a track day at the
Bondurant High Performance and Race Driving School near Phoenix. This video
clip features a moderately modded 2004 MazdaSpeed Miata with about 250
flywheel hp (200 rwhp on a Dyno) following a 430 hp late
model Corvette. The well driven Miata (with a passenger in the car) does
pretty well considering the huge power advantage of the Corvette, but the
Vette does eventually pull ahead slowly.
Fast Miata at Willow Springs 6-12-2010
This is a video shot in full 1920x1080 resolution with a Hero Pro
HD video camera at the very fast "Big Willow" road racing track near
Rosemond, CA. Unfortunately, the YouTube processing of the video during
upload significantly degrades the video clarity and quality in scenes when
the car is on the track at speed. This Miata runs on E85 fuel (85% ethanol
and 15% gasoline)
which burns cooler than straight gasoline and allows use of a higher
compression ratio and higher turboBoost. On the Dyno the car makes about 300
and about 270 lb-ft of torque. It hits 125 mph at redline on the main
straight at Willow Springs with a 200 lb passenger on-board, and lap
times with well used Hoosier R6 tires were in the 1:43 flat area.

2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata vs. 2013 MINI Roadster Cooper S
Despite the MINI Roadster being the latest in a long line of two-seater
sports cars from the land of the Redcoats, when it comes to the key
qualities of style, fun and value, it's obvious that the Japanese make a
superior British roadster, even to the British.

331 V8 Miata first start
After almost 2 years of working on the car every now and then, my miata is
back on the ground and started for the first time with a new 331 Ford V8.
I have some ground clearance issues to address before its ready for the
Update: It's been on the road for almost 4 years now w/ the V8 and running
fine. (see vimeo(dot)com/14690152)
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.
