Almost all of the power from the miata is put to the gorund stock, adding more mods to put the power to the ground wont increase your time, let's say they added a turbo and a engine swap for that 9k, they wouldnt be much faster too, since most of the power doesnt get to the ground, its the fine balance that matters

You could have spent that money on straight up engine and tranny work to make that thing a beast. Instead you put racing seats and a short shifter. Ricers pshh. Lol jk love you guys but really you could have spend 9k on some serious performance mods and accually made that shit a beast. Like better pistons, crank, valves and cam, put a turbo of charger, better cooling and air, etc.

So where's the update for the fix on the fuse?? And did you get a better time? With $9,600.00 upgrades, I'd think you s/b at at least 1.2-1.3? And would $10k (rounding up) acceptable for .3 better timing on the track? 😁🙄

I think you forgot to add a turbo in the build because the sotck engine is a straight turd but everything else was a good move. but Willow Springs isnt a very technical track and doesnt really push suspension to its limits. Most of its just flowing sweeping corners that wont benefit as much from the mods you have the ca as much as horsepower mods would have done with your tires. So I highly highly doubt youll shave 15-16 seconds off.

How to build a car. 1. Add power 2. Check to see if adding power made something fail. Yes? Upgrade that part No? Add more power 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your 0-60 time is faster than your 60-0 time. Add brake system.
