    Welcome Maxhouse97! Nice looking Carrera, I've got an 86 but cabrio so never gets used for events even though I did put a bolt in bar in it.

    I’m in Cincinnati - Mid-Ohio is my track, although I have run at VIR a couple of times.

    Welcome! I'm in Cali and raced mid-o a few times. I love that track especially all the weird bumps and concrete patches like the last sweeper and in my car some of the track is blind on the backside and the offcamber over the hill after China beach so it adds to the character and the challenge. What a fun track!

    I started tracking years ago with a modded Evo IX. Even as I got faster, it seemed like it was the car doing an amazing job and not my driving skills. I was learning bad habits and relying on the grip and power to mask my mistakes.

    I realized I did it backwards and after driving the Evo for many years, I sold it and bought a stock miata recently. Huge difference obviously driving a momentum car and although I feel like I'm starting from square one, it's a fun challenge.

    Welcome to the tribe David. You made the right choice. When you are ready, hire a driving coach for a day. You will learn more in a day with a good coach than in a year driving around by yourself. Either way, get a predictive lap timer in the car. Single most useful tool for driver development.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    Welcome David!

    I bet the wallet also appreciates the cost reduction in track day wear and tear items!

    Maybe we can draft each other one of these days?

    Thanks for the welcome! I am slowly adding mods with supermiata in mind in the distant future and yes my wallet is really appreciating the cost reduction.

    Good idea on hiring a coach and I plan to doing so soon. I am about 15s off my pace at BW in my Evo and know there is a lot of time to gain in the miata. I went to BW recently and will post a video in separate thread asking for critiques.
