Getting My NA Back Into Shape: Front Yard Body Shop

In case you are wondering where my 1990 NA6C Miata's been lately, it got into a traffic accident on May 8th, when my Miata collided with a Land Rover after I was cut off near an intersection. Damage was mainly limited to the bodywork and a bent tie rod. I was found to be not at fault for the accident by an insurance investigation. Unfortunately, the other driver's insurance considered my Miata a total loss. However, to me, it isn't. Since I already got my insurance check and I wanted to keep my Miata to transform it into a real racing car, I'm saving money for the bodywork by trying an old Spec Miata trick, wenching the body back into shape and banging out the dents myself, along with help, of course.

How to straighten a bent frame on a budget
A friend of mine stuffed his Miata into the wall at the exit of Turn 6 @ Laguna Seca. Bent the left front frame rail, pushed the radiator and fan back up against the motor. With only 2 hours until qualifying, with the help of a few friends, he put on a clinic on low-budget frame straightening. He managed to get the car out for qualifying, came back and did some more work in the afternoon, and finished the weekend with a 2nd place finish in ITA.

Testing a Friend's Camry Around SoW (4/30/2011)
Yes, I took a mommy grocery-getter around a racetrack. And yes, it has the normal V6 1MZ engine with a OEM TRD Supercharger puttting down 240whp (270hp at the flywheel), TEIN Super Street coilovers, some 225-wide KDW2 tires on some 16" wheels and had the benchseats removed (where the kids would normally go), but it managed a 1:35.9 (with another passenger) around the track with me driving earlier in the day. I wished I got it on film along with the 1:35.9 lap, but there was footage of me getting pointed-by by BMW and Lotus drivers. Makes me wonder what those drivers were thinking as the Camry shuffled past them. Track: The Streets of Willow Springs (CW w/ Blowpass and Bowl)

Is the Mazda MX-5 Any Good? - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris has been known to not like the Mazda MX-5, even calling it dirty words in an article a few years back. Now he gets to support his point by swapping his Ferrari 599 with Cameraman and Editor Neil Carey's NA Mazda MX-5. Was Chris wrong a few years ago?





XIDA Club Sport Coilover: Front Damper Action on an Exocet
I was always curious how the XIDA coilovers look like when I'm driving at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. The curiosity is only natural since I assemble, ship, align/cornerbalance, and drive/race/win on Miatas (MX-5s) that are equipped with these coilover kits as part of my job at 949 Racing/SuperMiata. Here is footage of the front left XIDA damper mounted on an Exocet built by Blackbox Motorsports in El Monte, CA. I was brought in by request to consult, test drive, and collect XIDA coilovers test data on their car.
