    Default Street Legal Track Car: 1992 Miata Track/Autocross Prepared

    I am selling my 1992 Miata. It has 120k miles and a clean title. The body is straight and the car looks good. This Miata is prepared for autocross and track days but it is still totally street legal. It only weighs 2100 pounds. It has competition suspension and brake system plus all of the required safety gear. The drivetrain is stock and reliable, so no issues passing smog. This is a car that you can drive to events, compete, and drive home; or just drop the top and have fun carving up the canyons.

    I bought this car when I blew the engine on my 911 racecar. Tired of the paying the Porsche tax, I wanted something that was affordable and reliable. This car delivered and is a lot of fun to drive. It had already been prepared for autocross and was used sparingly. It was my intention to use it for track days and eventually convert to a Specmiata or Supermiata racecar. I added a bunch of new parts for the suspension, overhauled the braking system, and installed all of the safety gear to make it legal to run with any organization. Unfortunately I never actually took it to the track, just enjoyed some of the back roads in San Diego County. My plans have changed a bit and now Im looking for a family friendly 4x4 camping rig, so the Miata is for sale. Check out the list of modifications below and let me know if you have any questions.

    Safety Equipment:
    4 point Rollbar Harddog M1 Hardcore with harness bar
    Kirkey 17 road racing seat (hardmounted for tall driver, easy to change for shorter drivers)
    Schroth Profi II-6H 6 point harness, Hans Device compatible and certified
    Autopower seatback brace
    Fire extinguisher
    OMP suede racing steering wheel
    NRG steering quick release and adapter
    Mazdaspeed tow hooks front and rear

    Suspension:
    949 Racing 6UL 15x7.5 lightweight wheels
    205/50-15 BFG Rival tires
    Fatcat Racing NB coilover suspension with revalved Bilstein shocks
    Front: 650 pound springs, Rear 350 pound springs (softer springs included)
    Bauer Extended ball joints for optimum camber
    NB shock mounts
    Racingbeat front sway bar with spacers, stock rear bar
    949 Racing adjustable swaybar drop links
    Fresh competition alignment and cornerbalance

    Brakes:
    Fresh racing brake pads (Raybestos ST43 & Porterfield R4 for correct bias)
    Recent front rotors
    New 949 Racing stainless brake lines
    Motul racing brake fluid, freshly flushed

    Drive Train:
    Stock 1.6 liter engine, runs cool and reliable (120k mi)
    Smog legal 100%
    Stock 5 speed transmission
    Stock viscous limited slip differential
    Fresh Mobil 1 synthetic oil
    New battery

    Additional Mods:
    Weight reductions: car weighs 2100 pounds
    Euro headlight conversion
    On board battery charger for long-term storage
    AC and stereo removed (heat still functional)

    Extras and Spares:
    Moss Motors fitted car cover
    Hawk HPS brake pads for autocross
    Stock wheels and tires if you want them
    Several bins of parts from another car (engine parts, suspension, wiring, etc)
    Stock passenger seat and belts installed
    Factory soft top is in good shape but the rear window is foggy

    Asking $4800

    Located in San Diego

    No need for quotes. It's street legal, registered, smogged, and insured in California right now. Not sure where you live but CA has some of the toughest restrictions around. If you have any specific technical questions about legality in your state let me know.

    i can only assume he meant "OMP suede racing steering wheel", deemed illegal to remove/disable mandated safety features that came with the car.

    Yes, removing an airbag from a car originally equipped with one will not pass VA safety inspection (several other states as well) , which is ridiculous

    I wasn't aware of that, all of my other track cars have predated airbags. The stock steering wheel with airbag is included with sale if you want to reinstall it.
