This is a repository of sorts to link to Race/Track builds.

Please submit in this thread any build threads that you feel qualify, does not have to be from this site in particular, but for the moment, let's keep these limited to Miata builds. Another thread may be created if there's interest for other cars, as i feel like there's also lots to learn from other platforms.

Qualifying criteria will be somewhat subjective. Rule of thumb if you're having trouble differentiating between "race car" and "street car": If it seems like a race car that sometimes gets driven on the street, it's a race car. If street car that sometimes gets driven on the track, it's a street car.

Final decisions will be made by the dictatorship.

Thanks! I just threw those up as examples so far. I'll go through and update with your suggestions in a bit. :)

Mine doesn't qualify, though. That car has never seen a track (yet), has virtually no safety equipment, and it's not a Miata. :lol:

Eh, I think purpose built autocross cars count. They may not be going track speeds, but they're just as competitive. You should put Swank Force One under "honorable mentions" or something
It's not even that, though. It's a street brawler and GRM Challenge car. :lol: It WILL qualify at some point. Let me get back to work on it and get my creative juices flowing. Aero, frame work, and safety gear is in the cards for it. :D

The Escort would have qualified, in my opinion. :) We'll worry about it when i add non-Miatas.


But yes. I agree. Purpose built autocross cars count.
