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.

V8 Miata startup & idle (Wreck Racing / Georgia Tech)
The Lexus V8 is running beautifully. The bodywork is still under construction. Front fenders are overrated! They also don't fit over these particular tires. Follow our build at wreckracing.gatech.edu or like us on facebook by searching "Georgia Tech Wreck Racing"!

SuperMiata: Round 1 - Race 3 (1/26/2014)
After a 10-minute red flag during Lap 1, we restarted the race. I started near the back per SuperMiata race format (finishing positions from the previous race, Race 2, will be reversed for the next race, this one). Tactical errors caused me to lose both William and Emilio to get to the front, but I eventually broke through the slower cars. Then again, it ended up being a dogfight with William, but this time, he ends up ahead. I finished 3rd, William 2nd, Emilio 1st.

How you shouldn't roll a miata fender.
Needed to slightly roll the fenders on my NA Miata, Not paying $200+ for a roller. This way worked fine for me, no more rubbing & looks fine. Did all 4 corners, turned out decent enough. Cost: $5 for 4loko and monster. Everything else I had at my house. I don't advise doing it this way. Its not very safe, might shank yourself.

SuperMiata: Round 3 - Race 2 @ Chuckwalla (3/23/2014)
A full 20-minute sprint race. Started dead last (P12) since I switched cars from Race 1 ("Monty" was down due to a dead fuel injector) and took Emilio's place in this race. In spite of "Super" having a throttle response issue, it was a world better than driving "Monty" with its dead injector issue. I slowly pushed through the field from P12 to P4, with an exciting end for a battle for P3. Thanks to Emilio for allowing me to drive "Super" for this race.

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)
