NC track build

Postby eflove » Wed Mar 26, 2014 9:23 pm

The time has come to put up or shut up with the build I've had in my head for the last year. I have been picturing a car that will keep up with a gt3 at the track and still drive home. I might do some "racing" with it but W2W isn't my thing. Really I just want to go fast. Talking over with anyone who would listen for months I'm sure they are all tired of it. Time to stop talking about it and dive in. Sorry for the cell phone pics.

Well after talking to Brian this morning it looks like i'm stuck with getting light weight rotors and oem rx-8 calipers if I want to keep the rpf1's :?

Yep, straight spokes on 17x9 45mm RPF1 didn't leave any room for 4 piston or 6 piston calipers.

The 17x10 RPF1 does fit the BBKs...I have the RB setup from Brian.

What size tire are you running? I don't think I can fit much more under the stock body than the 235 conti slicks I run.

255/40 BFG street tires...about the same size as your "235" Conti-labeled Hoosier-built slicks. It would be a fender roll and a mild pull to make them fit.

Are you building this for a specific class? That is a lot if sweet custom work you are having done. Unless you have to run those tires for a class, cuttings the fenders and adding flares will allow you much more grip from some other tire options.

FWIW, there are some good 16" options out there, but that currently limits you even further on brake options, although Flyin' Miata is working on a "Little Big Brake option."

Very nice merge collector on the turbo manifold.

I am building it as a car to be a fun car that can drive to the track and play with the big boys. If it ever gets put in a class it will be a NASA TT class. I have more fun chasing time on my own than doing anything door to door. I get the conti slicks for free so It's hard to go in another direction but I might step up to hoosier R80s. I think a "235" slick is a fine width for a 2100lb car.
