I just replaced my old small turbo setup with some new things. Flyin miata diy manifold and downpipe, Godspeed GT28 turbo, and a HKS wastegate. I was running 12psi in this run. I don't want to turn it up until I find out what my output is on a Dyno, so it'll stay like this for a bit.
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
turbo (cold and hot side) and cast
downpipe), MBC(junk need to get EBC working), turbosmart BOV, FM 2.5" Exhaust w/ test pipe, MegaSquirt, AEM wideband,
750cc 5o injectors, Mishimoto 3 row(huge) radiator, and Mishimoto slim
fans. ebay front mount FM stage 1 clutch. 195/50/15 Yokohama S-Drive tires,
Bunch of suspension stuff / tons of chassis stiffening, full brake system
upgrade and other miscellaneous things.
Car is a 94 r package car and has a full interior, and trunk, with the
Stock 1.6l , FM2 turbo kit @15psi ,
MEGAsquirt tuned by the Servion tuning , RC550cc injectors and clips,
Mazda Miata RB26 Wipe Out at Sacramento Raceway
Guy lost control of his 9 second Mazda Miata while racing at the drag
strip. His excellent reaction and control saved his life. Recorded at
Sacramento Raceway Park.
He regularly traps over 140+mph. If he would have slammed into the side
walls or the other car, things would've been really bad. He is okay. Now
let him enjoy his snow cone.
UPDATE: For those wanting to see the footage from his GoPro cameras,
unfortunately, both his GoPro cameras failed to record because both cameras
ran out of storage memory just after leaving the burn out pit and turned
off. I know a lot of people would love to see that footage. But glad I was
there to capture the event.
Thanks for all the views!!
