  1. Is there a list available to the general membership that gives car #, class, make of car and city the team calls home.
  2. if this was a stock part with polyurethane inserts you would be home free rules say : • Suspension bushings: OE replacement or polyurethane/ Delrin with OE geometry (OE hole location/offset, height, thickness): 0 pts otherwise it is a non stock part
  3. first thing i see wrong with this impound picture is car #107, non official number plaque (does not say Champcar at bottom) there is no class sticker and no sponsor sticker on front of door i thought all this was mandatory.

    Rolling miata fenders

    The second part to option A is to sell them to those of us willing to make them fit which is a win for ChampCar people and not TireRack
  5. Since I see no whining here is it safe to assume everyone made it through tech at Road Atlanta !!
  6. Maybe you need better paint, ours came right off. In fact I removed every sticker getting ready to repaint the whole car.

    Miata Tires

    What are we doing wrong? We ran 14hrs at Sebring and still have half of the tread left!! 245-40x15 on 9x15 wheels.
  8. This isn’t costing anything for people to make comments. 11 pages of comments, do you realize how many fenders this time could have widened!!! and we could move on to other topics. Just for arguments sake if 2 circles touch it's at 3 & 9 .

    Now I understand why you are down on Ecotec Miata's you race Class B and before this your only Miata competition were turbo charged and many times failed to finish. If my non swapped Miata had been in Class B at Daytona we would have had 2nd , instead we got 17th in Class A. This says it is the Miata that is beating Class B not the Ecotec swap
  10. You guys went nuts when I asked about moving the engine back. How about if I drill 4 holes and 2 straps to move the front subframe forward then 2 more straps to move the engine back to it's original location. total cost about $4 for the steel. now the front of the engine is closer to the CL of the wheels. h

    I think this ruling went away especially when Ecotec Miata stated that a Malibu manifold will fit. The header puts me at 501 for points if I have to declare it.
  13. How are points figured for moving the engine back?

    Flashy Lights?

    Interesting concept, all cars have had that ability for the last 30 years

    Can anyone explain the swap calculator? Why does it ask for original HP it makes no difference in the VPI see below Make: Mazda Model: Miata Year: 1991 VPi: 250 Car Weight: 2048 Original HP: 0 <------ New HP: 169 Points Added to VPi: 159 <------ --->NEW VPI: 409 Make: Mazda Model: Miata Year: 1991 VPi: 250 Car Weight: 2048 Original HP: 126 <------ New HP: 169 Points Added to VPi: 159 <------ --->NEW VPI: 409 Make: Mazda Model: Miata Year: 1991 VPi: 250 Car Weight: 2048 Original HP: 169 <------ New HP: 169 Points Added to VPi: 159 <------ --->NEW VPI: 409 But if I add 1 HP, I gain 13 points penalty really!!! nobody can even tell me the HP of a ecotec engine. Make: Mazda Model: Miata Year: 1991 VPi: 250 Car Weight: 2048 Original HP: 170 <------ New HP: 170 Points Added to VPi: 172 <------ --->NEW VPI: 422 this is the formula IF[16 - (weight / (HP + hpAdd) ) > 0 ] THEN [ 0.032 * (16 - (weight / (HP + hpAdd))) ^6] + 50 ELSE + 50 what is 16 and 6 in the formula?
