Slick Auto Mazda Miata MX--5 Turbo Track Car - Octane Report
http://OctaneReport.com for more. We tested the Slick Auto Mazda Miata at
the Streets Of Willow racetrack. 263whp, turbocharged, 275 Hoosiers, 15x9 wheels, widebody
kit and custom aerodynamics. The flat black paint even screams
"aggressive". Not your average cute roadster.

bad thing is i had a couple bolts (turbo
to manifold) back out at the start of the session. ran anyway with alot
less power because it's not often your out on a track with an awesome
machine like that.

My first Stagedrive (autoX) using my 1.6 1992 mazda MX5. Link ecu, greddy
kit, 0.6bar Boost at this point(only
had the car on the road a couple of days.

Edited so you only see/hear the cool parts. There were a lot of cars on the
road so I had to be careful for most of the time. This was the first turbo drive EVER, with a tune from the
DSM 450cc injectors

Mitsubishi Starion Intercooler
It's open downpipe and wastegate in this video but it has a 3" Exhaust now with an open dump internal WG.
In this video it had the stock (Stage 1) clutch, but now it has a Spec
Stage 2 (seriously) clutch.

After getting time to sort out settings after a rushed first session, it
was time for the real track test for the second session of the day for my
"new" MSM, powered by Flyin' Miata. This session is the only real good
session I had to test my MSM because an Intercooler pipe popped out during the
third session, disabling my car and thus ending the test day.
Featured here are short battles of against an Evo and a 911 RS (both DOT-R
tire clad and caged). Also, I set my car's benchmark time of around 1:30
(3/10 off if I didn't lift on the final straight during the checkered
Testing for items of interest:
1. Custom-built BP4W motor w/ FM2 turbo
2. Falken Azenis RT-615 tires
3. FM frame rails
1. OMG, so much faster and more
responsive relative to a stock-ECU MSM. But obviously, as seen on the film,
I'm still no match against power cars on the straights. Note that I'm not
running full Boost right now because
I still getting some knocking issues sorted out. As soon as that's done, I
can finally turn up my Boost to full
2. I can see what people have been on about with these tires. These have
great response, awesome dry grip and warm up quickly (only took a half a
lap). However, after about 5 minutes of hard driving, the tires started to
get a bit greasy, but not uncontrollable. To me, this verifies the auto-x
reputation, but for the track, I still think my old BFG KDW2s still come
out on top on the track because they take heat better and grip better
overall through long track sessions.
3. In short, even the old suspension benefited from the chassis stiffening
and added to the responsiveness and stability in the corners. As a bonus,
they also help the chassis cope with the bumps on the track compared to my
