sounded like fun...... but on day you will be beaten..

i had the same thing happen to me but i ended with egg on my face..

some kid in a beat up vauxhall nova came up behind me and he was four up, so to start with i was just taking it easy around corners and islands etc, so when i came up to a main straight i thought right he can have it, so i dropped a cog and floored it...... i looked in my rear view mirror and there he was, still there.

only to find out he was running a 2.0 turbo in a car that was under half of my weight..... just goes to show onje day you will meat your match by something that you wouldnt expect.

Yeah, I'm building up a Mazda Miata (I think in europe they're called Eunos or MX-5s can't remember which) with a turbocharger with the express goal of being faster and more nimble than an M roadster.

BTW, nice kill!!

let me add that triggrhappi's miata will roughly do 0-60 in 4 flat...no bad for a little roadster eh? "Captain, prepare for take off!"

my current estimate places the total cost of it at around $17k. The car will weigh a few hundred pounds less than stock, so something like 2400-2500lbs. My power goal is 320WHP and no less than 280lbs of torque to the wheels. The car is probably going to make only 280WHP on the turbo I get from flyin miata, so I might have to retrofit a T3/T4 hybrid to reach 320WHP. Right now the car has a built motor, and is once again in pieces because of a clutch line failure that ate up the flywheel pretty good.

I'm also considering holding off on the turbo so I can build a Pro7 race car this summer and race it next season.

Sounds good to me man. A supercharger might do it, but you really don't want to get TOO much power in a car that small, because it will become undriveable very quickly. I know that the M Roadsters are already pretty tail happy, and more power is just going to make it worse. The reason I'm not going to allow myself to exceed 320WHP (and it wouldn't be all that hard for me to do) is because that's the most that the miata's chassis can realistically handle. The Track Dog (the car in my sig) is the race car that Flyin Miata races in the Open Track Challenge, and they run circles around vipers and such with 320WHP and a very lightweight miata. They could do more power, but the car would be undriveable.
