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. For more on the car, see http://www.targamiata.com. For more on Flyin' Miata's V8 conversions, see http://www.flyinmiata.com/v8

Autocrossing a V8 Miata - Keith
Brandon and Keith took Elvis out to a local autocross for some fun. Elvis, for those who don't know him, is Flyin' Miata's LS1-powered Miata. He's also fitted with FM AFCO suspension and a number of other upgrades. You can find out more at flyinmiata.com. Not Keith's fastest run of the day, but close. It's a fun one to watch. Who says V8 Miatas don't handle? Keith and Brandon have different driving styles, but they tend to trade FTD back and forth.
