  • Miatas @ Atlanta Motorsports Park August 2, 2018



    Join us for the Jzilla Trackdays before the Gap powered by Rspeed event on August 2nd at Atlanta Motorsports Park!

    We will keep the pricing low as this is a weekday event. MX5's will take over Atlanta Motorsports Park before the annual gathering at Deal's Gap. This is open to other car groups but instructed group is limited to MX5 owners.

    Novice instruction is reserved for MX5 drivers first and will be open to the public if it does not fill up.

    NA/NB must have a 4 point approved roll bar. Please check with event organizers and staff beforehand if you have questions.

    NC/ND may run with the stock rollover protection, but will be restricted to tires with a UTQG of 101 and higher. Below that, we require an approved aftermarket rollbar.

    Instructed Groups are also restricted to tires UTQG greater than 100.

    Registration ends on July 28, 2018 11:59 PM EDT

        Know any law firms that need a paralegal? I'm experienced, but I have been looking for months. It's like there is a drought of legal jobs in Atlanta. Its ridiculous!

          Hmmm...I don't know any lawyers. I remember we exchanged some info a few years ago. Did you get a chance to visit the area? I do a bit of interesting networking through Jzilla events, mostly the other drivers and instructors; aeronautical engineer, CEO, entrepreneurs, doctor, pro MMA fighter, etc.

            Actually, wait...Jzilla's spouse works for Emory University. I remember she was telling me about the law school expectations there.

              I envy you if you do not know any lawyers.

                I actually like all the lawyers I've met, though I know them all outside of their professional setting. If you can't find work in the atlanta area you can't be looking hard enough. One lawyer friend used to work for the state of GA before she moved to NC a year ago. Shoot me a pm if you'd like and I can ask her if any of her GA colleagues are looking to hire.

                  Force, did I see on the FB you bought a new (NB) Miata? Will it be a track car?

                    Yup! I sold the Mariner last month.

                    I am thrashing pretty hard to get the NB to my level of acceptability for HPDE. Some was to soothe my designer sensibilities.

                    Since 11/15/17:

                    Xidas
                    Custom alignment
                    Brake lines/pads/rotors/flush
                    Swapped tan interior for custom red & black
                    COPs & plugs
                    2.5" cat & midpipe + both O2 sensors
                    NB2 exhaust manifold and intake tract.
                    Swaybars & endlinks
                    Shifter rebuild
                    Trans and diff flush/fill
                    Proactively replaced the heater core and hoses.

                    I am in the middle of installing the rollbar, which I started last night.

                    I need to get the CSF radiator in the car, but I'm doing the TB/WP/seals/hoses along with that. I have clutch hydraulics to replace ( and braided line), fit my race seat, install harness mounting hardware, rear swaybar, mount tires (arrives today, I believe), replace the fuel filter, maybe the soft fuel lines, adjust the clutch pedal, and then I think it will pass my approval. I do a lot of this proactively. My Q4/Q1 are slower than the rest of the year.

                        Well, it's white, so you know it's got good bones!

                            Wow. Wow! I would never have suspected red carpet to look that good in anything. The aluminum/stainless accents bring it all together. Nicely done.

                              Thank you! I've been noodling this build for a few years. It's not done, but I like the direction.

                              I did a few quick study sketches of the interior, seat cut and sews, etc. I grabbed a model for wheels options too. This will be the ultimate goal:
