I’d certainly like to eliminate the rotation mass, but this journey is one of getting back to actually having fun racing, instead of constantly chasing problems.
    I just ordered a factory clutch and flywheel. Perhaps that says it all?

    Ha. Delicate subject that. Cage adds weight, isn't required by the rules and Ryan is quite plainly, trying to build the fastest "street" tired Miata ever built.. ever.
    In fact, I think it already is. So I'm guessing there are no immediate plans for the full cage

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

    Moto IQ got up close with the car at Buttonwillow and a full article is on the way. I'm told it should be up within 24 hours. I'll put up a link as soon as I have it.

    Nice write-up, Ryan. Ever think about extending the roll cage?

    So if this is "Limited" ... what's "Unlimited"? Anti-Grav? Warp Drive? A herd of 'roid-enraged hamsters?

    Seriously, this thing is so awesome and i love the use of this engine and E85.

    Actually there are some massive differences between what you're allowed to do in "Limited" and what you're allowed to do in "Unlimited".
    Massive amount of modifications to the chassis, completely redone bodywork, active aero, chop tops, engine relocation etc.. the list is long.
    Ryan's car is a work of art built to make the most out of the Limited class rules and does so very successfully.

    Without having looked at the rules, I'd guess Ryan's car is a rolling example of the Limited class rules. If he changed it, it's allowed. If it's still Miata, it's not allowed.

    Moti, are you looking for anymore apprentices?

    I figured, but I had come up with the hamster line earlier in the day and the failed comic in me had to find a way to use it.

    Unlimited allows some ludicrous stuff. That's not to say that all Unlimited cars are taking full advantage of what's allowed, but you can really go off the reservation in Unlimited if you want to.

    Don't forget perhaps the most important one - I have to run street tires
