Turbo Miata Drag Race - 13.8 @ 101 - Megasquirt
Had a ton of runs today. But i was dealing with a heat soak issue. My times
would be a full second slower if i just did a hot pass. 90F ambient temps,
intake temps were 100+ at the start lines. That plus having to deal with a
ton of wheel hop if i spun the tires.
Basically what it boils down to is this car is not meant for the straight
line. Though this car is a blast in the twisties. If i had 60F temps, with
a bigger Intercooler i could
have hit 13.4 i'm sure.
Car is set up with Megasquirt II, using launch control and flat foot
shifting. Mod list is pretty long, so i post the relevant stuff:
Stock engine internals. 12psi. FM kit, gt2560 (ported and polished header

Formula One V6 turbo: 2014 Rules Explained
Transforming Formula One: 2014 Rules Explained: CGI Clip
A new clip from Red Bull sees Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel explain
the 2014 Formula One regulations -- which are arguably the most complex the
sport has ever seen.
At the start, thousands of car parts simultaneously assemble around Dan to
form the RB10.
As Dan races to catch up Seb in his RB9, the World Champion's car becomes
transparent while travelling at full speed. The film then presents a visual
sequence that shows the 2014 regulation changes taking shape and coming to
life, as Seb's car transforms into an RB10.
As well as providing information on the new technical changes for 2014, the
clip also presents a unique view of the technology at work inside this
year's Formula One cars.
