Ah where were we?

Offseason I decided to get into iRacing. I got a G27, but the 270mm wheel felt very unnatural. 3D printer to the rescue!



Picked these up from Tarmac88, figured it was time for more track focused wheels/ tires.



Hit 90k driving it to/from work



Then I put it away for the winter, then school started, then it started getting warm and I forgot how much fun the car was. I also procrastinated a ton of maintence lol.



Fixed the circuit sports coolant tank and its **** design. Now I don't spill coolant in left turns.



That should be one piece. Replaced it with a Mazdacomp on the drivers side, OEM on passenger.



Car Make Corns heatshield decided to just not hold together at the weld. Washer + hammer made it at least not rattle



VC Gasket, painted VC, new PCV, fresh coils, re-did the coil harness, new plugs and all driveline fluids.

While I had the VC off and plugs out I played with my Boroscope. Order of 1 to 4









Dunno what I'm looking at to be honest. But I don't see chips or cracks or the usual signs of detonation on the edges of the piston though.



Stage one of this project.



Finally getting some proper safety back in the car too.





Cobra Monaco Pro 40th Anniversary editions, Schroth Enduro harnesses and I'll be wearing an SHR Flex HANS.



All just in time for Kmiata Day. I fit and clear broomstick, however my 6'6" instructor was never clearing broomstick unfortunately.



Squadded up

I did go 4 off and blew off my front lip. New one was required.



I gotta say this IKON MOTORSPORTS rep GV from Amazon is the best RepGV i've ever fitted. Actually perfect, no crease or short end like the others. Also seemed more flexible and smoother/ shinier than usual.



And got these on after the track day. Definitely a difference, most noticeable in high frequency bumps and potholes. Front end rattles a lot less and theres more of a "thunk" than a rattle or shake when hitting bumps now.

Recently got into Drones too, so the Miata took a bit of a backseat to that as I started in the hobby and did my best to learn.



Until next time.

How you like them Countergrams? I'm sorta pissed that they came out once I already had the wheels I'd waited a decade for.

9 Wides/ 225 tires tramline a lot more on the streets. Otherwise I can definitely feel the weight difference lol. Car has a little more pep. They suck in the rain but all 200TWs do.
