    Default Stupid Miata tricks

    We don't share too much of the projects on this forum as it's all Miata-centric and posted on the Miata forums around the world already. This is what we have been fooling around with lately.

    New 15x10 6UL's with the just released 245/40/15 Maxxis VR-1. This is one of our shop cars, riding on Tecna prototypes.
    Tecnas are a high quality non adjustable coilovers aimed at the street driver looking for max comfort while improving handling over stock.
    This car will either get a Jackson Racing Rotrex or Trackspeed Engineering EFR6258 turbo kit. Haven't decided yet.

    Buttercup

    OGK. Stands for Orange Giant Killer. Laugh now
    It should weigh about 1900lbs with driver and make about 400whp with boost turned all the way up. It will have many aeros and 275 Hoosiers on our 15x11 6UL's

    This pic from about a year ago. It's a bit further along now

    Quaife sequential for OGK

    This is Deviate. That's a 250whp, 8800rpm K20A2 (Honda). It will go fast.

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

    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    10pt by the time it's done I think. Ties into the cowl and through the firewall to the front shock towers.

    I approve If they only made this Honda engine lean to the left a bit or two it would have been amazing

    ND is all over this forum already. Also nothing new worth sharing since you did the bar 5 months ago.

    Also my first question
    I bought Xidas in the meantime, though!

    The builds look great. I saw a former 949 car at TCD when my Miata was there for the floor pan drop and holy crap it was a nice build.

    Is that the standard 69G? You think it will hold up to 400hp in OGK?

    Ours is the 60G, rated for 375 bhp. The 69G is rated for 700. We will see if we can break it.
