Hoosier Daddy Racing

Recommended Posts

We tripped and fell into this series thanks to a friend, who introduced us to the John Allen Special guys.  Thanks to Rich and those guys for getting us pointed in the right direction.  This will be our first time racing, so the goal is just to finish (with the car in one piece ideally) and not hit anyone else's cars.  This is a family project involving my dad, brother, and me.

 

We picked up a 1990 Miata from Virginia that the guy posted for sale as an "ITA Miata", however, after seeing it, it was clear the SCCA would have made him put it back on the trailer and go home if he ever tried to race it.  When we got it, it had a .040" over 1.6, a ton of missing parts (likely stripped for no other reason except because racecar), and a long list of hidden issues.  We spent all of 2018 building a stock 1.6 for it, replacing all the missing parts, and getting it ready for Road Atlanta next month.

Looks good!  Word of advice. take the 25pts for a diff swap if you haven't already!  We did 3 years trying to run the 1.6 diff and got to where we could swap one in ~30 minutes while it was hot........only  blew up 7 of them, and they were not junk yard unopened units.

Yep we already have a 4.1 Torsen in it. The 1.6 diff is sitting on my garage floor where it belongs!

Looking good guys! We’ll be at RA as well and have quite a few 1.6/1.8 spares in case you guys need anything. Just look for the Miata with the swan wang.

You'll want to note, there are new number and sponsor panels for 2019.. so you may need to replace those pretty looking ones now 😕

 

Fantastic team name though! 😆

Yeah I just saw the new title sponsor was posted yesterday so we're going to order everything tomorrow....then back to the ocd process of making sure they're on straight!! Because as we all know, looking good is WAY more important than going fast
