Big Welcome LOUMO!

Very nice looking ride. I'm here in Orlando, there are a few of us that get together occasionally. I think the next meet is tentatively scheduled for April 9, we'll post it here in the Southeast section. I you have any questions fire 'em off!

You mentioned you autocross, have you been out to the MSCC or SCCA events? One week from today is the Martin Spring Mini-Prix at the Gainesville test track 8) .

Yeah my old car was a Jetta VR6 that i ran in STS but, tell me more about next weekend? Also i dont know if you guys are gonna go to G'ville on the 14th but is is test and tune so for 40 bucks you get like 5 hours of driving on the read course.

The car has a greddy turbo kit and I am melting the master cylinder res. On flyin miata they have a heat sheild for that but i am not sure if it is the right one. Also does anybody have just the resavar(spelling/me being lazy) that i can buy off them so i dont have to buy a new master cylinder.

PM me if you want to buy just a brake fluid reservoir. I have one. You will probably need to wrap it in heat wrap in addition to a shield. :)

Martin Sports Car Club (MSCC) Spring Mini-Prix on the Test Track at Gainesville Raceway. We go there twice a year, spring and fall. Our small "home" site is located in Lake County.

This is one of our competition events, probably 4 runs and the chance for fun-runs.

Ok yeah i heard of that. I was gonna go in my jetta, but i wanna get some things done on the miata b4 i take it out and beat on it.

Have you ever gone to one of the test and tunes at gainsville? Either your car over heats or you just cant drive anymore...that is how many runs you get at those.
